For those of you who haven’t heard about it, there is a pro fitness league being developed athletes in the sport of fitness. From the NPFL website:

The World’s First Professional Spectator Sport with Team Human Performance Racing

The National Pro Fitness League was created for the fans. Two-hour matches that take place in a basketball arena. They’ll be easy to follow and understand, yet filled with strategy and teamwork. Matches will be televised on a national sports network, and our website will have fresh daily content all year round. Follow your favorite athletes and teams, and geek out on standings, scores, and stats.

Strategy and Execution

Two teams of four men and four women will compete head-to-head in eleven races requiring tremendous capacity and efficient execution. Strategy will be critically important as teams select race participants, make on-the-fly substitutions, and distribute the workload.  Teams with superior execution strategies could potentially defeat teams with superior work capacity.

Live Large

Attending the live matches will be a blast. With many of the world’s fittest athletes competing in front of you in fast-paced, easy-to-follow events, you will surely be entertained. The matches will take place in basketball arenas, which means you have the opportunity for court-side seating. You will feel like you’re part of the action. Most teams will stick around after the match to answer questions, sign autographs, or snap a quick pic.

Network Coverage

The League’s regular season matches and playoffs will be shown live on the web and on a national sports network. Full broadcast-quality productions with live scoring and graphics, athlete profiles and event descriptions, plus full, in-your-face coverage of the events.

The Website

The NPFL website will be your home base for competition standing and statistics, athlete and team stories, and more. Fresh year-round video content will include athlete training sessions and interviews, team workouts, coaches’ tips and commentary, and of course, match replays and highlights.

This weekend, LA will be hosting a combine where athletes get to showcase their skills in hopes of getting drafted by a team, landing a salaried contract, and essentially becoming a paid professional athlete. Our very own Alex Causey, Jessica Suver and James McCoy will be trying out. So if you see them, wish them the best of luck, and if you have the time, go cheer them on at:
