Packing List For The Decapolis Games

Are you excited for the Decapolis Games?

This is going to be one of the biggest fitness events in Jordan this year, gathering fitness entustiasts from all over the country for a day of fun and competition.

The Games will be a one day event on Friday, September 13th. It will test athletes’ strength and endurance through three workouts:

The Engines: this is an endurance-focused workout, consisting of a team run plus a team AMRAP involving biking, rowing, and swimming.


Transmission: this one involves moving heavy objects back and forth with burpee intermissions in between. This is a perfect mix of strength and endurance.

High Ladder: this workout is all about strength, consisting of team pullups and thrusters AMRAPs and a max clean for each athlete.


The competitions are going to be between teams of three competing in three divisions, Fun, Challenge, and All Men.

Fun and Challenge teams will be made up of two male and one female athletes, All Men, as you may guess, is between all-male teams.

Challenge and All Men will be doing all three workouts, while the Fun division will only do The Engines and Transmission.

We’ve been preparing for months to make sure the event is a big success.
