I'm a competitive guy and I like being able to compete against myself and others in a given area and to train for a specific area (like push-ups or chin-ups) or to figure out how to increase my speed in an event like the shuttle-run, which seems like it requires a lot of technique.
You should come out and see where you stack up in your age group. It's fun, the staff at Triad really get what they're doing with this stuff. It only takes about an hour (from 10-11 on Saturday morning).
Here are the results I received yesterday after the event.
