Tri-Fitness - Fitness Challenge Events 

What is Tri-Fitness? Tri-Fitness is a fitness challenge event with a foundation based on the dedication to health, fitness and the competitive spirit.   In 1997, Al Rosen decided to create a fitness challenge to empower athletes and have them feel the power of accomplishment. Rosen (a gym owner for 28 years, physical education teacher and coach, former professional wrestler, fitness trainer) with a background in gymnastics used the gymnastic formula to create the scoring (10 point system). Rosen states: “instead of bars, beam, vault and floor the Tri-Fitness has obstacle course, fitness skills, fitness routine and true grit challenge as well as a Grace & Physique competition for women (the physique is a by-product of the type of training and nutrition one does preparing for the event).”   In past television interviews, Rosen has been known to explain how amazing it is to see women looking like Barbie in the Grace & Physique turn into G.I . Jane on the obstacle course.
