7 FITNESS TESTS

Hosted by: Sharp End Athletics
The True Athlete Games is an athletic competition created by Speed & Conditioning Coach David Braswell that seeks to test your strength, power, speed, acceleration, agility, stamina, and endurance through a combination of traditional as well as “new school” testing formats in a way that’s founded on basic physiological principles, competitive, fun, and balanced.
What’s new school about our competition format is the implementation of weight classes to balance the competition field. We’re excited and proud to be one of the firsts to highlight athletes of various sizes and abilities in a non-sport competition!
Physiology experts and native Austinites, Jim Cawley and Bruce Evans developed a definition of fitness that has been adopted by many mainstream sports and fitness arenas. The definition of fitness is founded on the following diagram;
10 General Physical Skills: “If your goal is optimum physical competence then all ten general physical skills must be considered.”
Training the skills on the left yield more measurable changes, practicing the skills on the right involve more neural adaptations, and the middle two skills are developed through a summation of forces created by a combination of the two sides.
