Sorinex's Summer Strong 10 will be held at Sorinex HQ from Friday May 19th to Sunday May 21st.
This annual event draws a few hundred people to watch competitors perform feats of strength & learn from top Athletes and Athletic Trainers in the fitness industry. Competitions include the Sorinex Ultimate Athlete Combine, which is made up of 10 different events, similar to a football/athletic combine. This will determine the "Ultimate Athlete". There will be individuals and teams and all skill-sets are welcome. Whether you're an entry-level or top-tier athlete, we want to see what you've got! There are no certifications required, ANY entrant can compete.
The Ultimate Athlete Combine is scored like a decathlon event, where each of the ten combine stations has a Gold Standard. The Gold Standard is equivalent to 1000 points in total, and all scores are scaled from that mark. Gold Standard for each event is listed below.
