About Us



What is the AFG? - The Anytime Fitness Games is a non-profit, competitive, team-based obstacle course race to be used as a fundraiser to help a non-profit organization within Caldwell County. There is no other purpose than simply promoting healthy, fun lifestyles and teamwork while giving back to our community. Anytime Fitness, Lenoir chooses a new organization every year based on specific criteria. More information about our supported organization can be found below.

What to Expect? - The course is approximately a 5K designed with some familiar obstacles and some entirely unique ones. Our obstacles range from strength and stamina to dexterity, communication, and mind-teasers that are combined in such a way to maximize teamwork, a challenging environment, and the most fun! We believe in teamwork as one of our core values and our course is designed in such a way that individuals cannot accomplish the entirety of the race without their teammates. 

Are there Prizes? - Cash prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams based on both completion and time. Another Anytime Fitness value is that one good rep is better then 100 bad ones. Strength and speed are important but not when it comprises the integrity of the motion. Penalty burpees will be awarded to each team per failed obstacle, the top three teams who complete the least amount of burpees throughout the course and maintain the fastest times will be eligible for prizes.

Who Can Participate? - The race is open to anyone 12 and up. All fitness levels are welcome and modifications are encouraged for those appropriately in need of. Because the race is based on completion and the obstacles are based on more then just brute strength, the playing field is leveled.
