CariFin Games schedule of events is much anticipated on the sporting calendar of the financial services sector. Officially we start three months into the year allowing the individual members of staff of the participating institutions to prepare for the various activities in the Games. The institutions can take this opportunity to run various training programmes to promote participation in the event as well as increase the level of fitness among their staff in both walking and running categories. The proposed start date for the Torch Relay and CariFin Games is Saturday April 14, 2012 this will allow 10 days to recover before the first event – The One Lap Savannah. From here on virtually every week there is an event.
The key in giving the three months’ space before the start of activities is for all to prepare and promote the Games. They also derive the benefits of higher levels of fitness and greater staff satisfaction and team spirit.
As usual it is expected that something new would be introduced every year. For 2012 we are looking to try Crossfit. It has been creating a lot of attention and buzz all over the world so far that main stream media has jumped in and is proclaiming its validity and importance as sports. Simply put Crossfit is functional exercises like squats, pull ups, burpees, box jumps, , double unders, push ups etc done to a time.. It could probably be the simplest, most functional way to decide who is the fittest person in a group or competition.
We will be holding a poll shortly to have you vote on the idea. We would love your feedback. Lets hear from you, use the comment area at the bottom of this post to share your views.
