Welcome to Strength Competition India Throwdown! A carnival which celebrates sports and sportsmen. There are umpteen reasons why you must drop by, cheer and participate. If you haven’t made up your mind as yet, here are the 10 reasons why you should not sit out on the Games.
Celebrate the spirit of sports
No one was meant to be an ‘all-work-and-no-play’ Jack. There is nothing more uplifting than sports. Come over and witness the sporting spirit: the grace in accepting defeat, the compassion in giving a hand to lift up an opponent, as also the spirit to go for the kill is sure to give you goosebumps.
Earn through the prize money
A podium finish means you win prize money. A podium finish means recognition. The climb is fun. And so is the view from the top. Your day might be well-spent after all!
Three categories to choose from
Not one; you get to choose from three strength athletic events: Powerlifting, CrossFit and Strongman. What do you like best? What do you enjoy most? What are you good at? All three? Register for them all then. We would love to see more of you.
Understand your body better
Your body is God’s greatest gift. How you tune it is your choice. Many people, like Arnold Schwarzenegger, have tuned their bodies to listen to them. Others have their body dictate them. Staying fit, helps you stay mentally agile too. The event gives you an opportunity to test how your body responds to physical strain in a competition setting.
It is often said that when you practice, you must surprise your body. So you must when you compete too. By competing against people you have never battled with before, you step out of your comfort zone and breach your limits. To uncover hidden talents, you must but participate.
Strengthen your cause to enter other international competitions
If you have been one of those guys who as a kid dreamed of participating internationally or who now looks at cross-border options, this is your best bet to showcase your talent. Winners get noticed here. Might just be the first step towards your dream.
Meet like-minded people
A contest of such sporting depth and national width offers you the opportunity to meet a lot of like-minded people and forge lasting friendships. In our limited circle of friends and relatives, not everyone shares our passion. India Throwdown is a carnival of people with similar inclinations.
Compete with the country’s best
You may be a star at your gym or a local icon. But do you not want to test yourself nationally? To come out a winner amongst the nation’s top talent is a kick of a different kind. This throwdown is a national event with a purpose.
An international experience
You don’t easily get to play at an international event. There are hazaar formalities and hindrances. But India Throwdown is just a click away. If you have the inclination, we have space. You get to play by the international rules, and with equipment approved by international federations.
Fun to participate
If not for anything, why not for fun? The very act of participating gives an adrenaline rush. More than winning the prize, it is competing well that counts. How the national spirit goes up when India wins a World Cup or an Indian wins an Olympic medal? Sporting heroes like Sachin Tendulkar, Dhyan Chand, and Usain Bolt, are celebrated for a reason. Bundle up entertainment and fun, the word is sports!
DO YOU STILL HAVE EXCUSES?
Well, these five would not wash:
Phew. Whoever had the time? All of us have the same 24 hours. It always trickles down to priorities. Suppose you are chasing a deadline, and you get an invite from your Bollywood heartthrob for a dinner, would you not squeeze in the time? If you love sports, find the time. If fitness is important to you, beat the challenges and participate. We assure you, the competition be would worth it!
Health and fitness are things money can’t buy. Remember this is money that you will be investing not spending. Plus, this spending can come back to you in the form of prizes, recognition and future opportunities.
Not interested in sports
Wouldn’t be fair to declare so without trying your hand, would it? Sports and games have such an international following only because it is so much fun playing. Plus, sports keeps you fit as a fiddle. And you owe it to yourself to stay fit. Start the process today.
Fear of injury
Yes, injuries plague sportsmen. But then you cannot lead a life out of fear. Cross a road, there is a danger. Catch a flight, and there is the possibility of a hijack. To move forward, you cannot forever be looking backwards. Also, when blessed with such medical advancements, why spoil the fun? Our bodies heal quickly anyway.
Leander at 45 still plays Wimbledon. Rhodes played international cricket at 49. A lady took the marathon at age 102. Age is only a number. And many sportsmen continue to play their best at advanced ages.
So folks, come here and enjoy the fun. Come once, and you will keep coming back year after year. Registrations start on 1st October.
