Since the very dawn of time, a war has raged between the sexes. It began in the Garden of Eden after Adam graciously gave up his rib so God could create Eve. Eve, naive and weak, was fooled by the serpent into eating the forbidden fruit. She then convinced Adam, who knew better but did not want to disappoint his wife, to eat the fruit (It’s a fact ladies. I found it on Wikipedia). And it was at that exact moment in time that testosterone and estrogen became entangled in a never-ending battle for superiority.
That is until now. On April 6th, THE argument will end, and THE question will be answered. It is on that day that the superior sex will be crowned. Will it be the females who over the course of history have given us possibly the greatest gift of all: child? Or will it be the males who have given us the wheel, fire, penicillin, the microchip, and Duck Dynasty?
The contest begins promptly on Saturday, April 6th at 10 a.m. The sign up sheet is available on the front counter. There is no limit to how many members can participate. You must be a member of Ageless to participate. There is no cost to do it.
The men will be led into battle by Tommy Bauer while the women will be led into battle by Reggie Byots. The contest will be split into 4 phases, and will test the participants’ endurance, strength, teamwork, and problem-solving abilities. Only the first phase will be announced prior to the competition. The remaining 3 phases will be announced the day of the competition.
Phase 1 – Endurance
Participants will be dropped off at the entrance of the bike trail in Benld. The women will have one 25lb plate (only 1 between the entire team) and the men will have 1 45lb plate. The entire team must run from Benld to Ageless without dropping or setting the plate down. The 2nd phase will not begin until the last member of the team enters the gym.
Phase 2 – Strength and Skill
Phase 3 – Teamwork
Phase 4: Endurance and problem solving
The entire contest will take between 90-120 minutes. After the contest, we’ll have a cookout at the gym. We’ll grill out, have water, protein shakes, music, and more. Even if you don’t participate in the contest, you can still come and enjoy the cookout. Bring your family too.
Although bragging rights would probably be enough, the losing team will also serve the winning team their meal after the contest. Both teams will also receive a free Battle of the Sexes t-shirt. Pictures of both teams will be taken and sent to the local newspapers.
