Seniors compete in fitness games

For the third year, Fitness Quest 10 in Scripps Ranch organized and hosted the only fitness competition in California that is associated with the San Diego and California Senior Games: the Masters 50+ Fitness Competition.

Ninety individuals registered for the competition.

The events included med ball slam, keg toss, broad jump, Concept 2 rower, kettlebell box squats, jump rope, barbell bench press, overhand straight arm hang, 300 yard shuffle run, and prowler push.

The competition was held Sept. 25. The bulk of contestants were in their 50s and 60s, but the 70-74 bracket had eight and the 75-79 and 80-84 each had four. Of those, 76 individuals received at least one medal.

Jeff Bristol, Fitness Quest 10 owner and general manager, organizes the event in coordination with FQ10 members Stan and Trish Williams, who serve as co-commissioners between the gym and the California Senior Games, and also compete.
