Come one, come all, and let the games begin! The Shokz Games, that is. So what exactly are the Shokz Games? Read all about it below.
What is it?
Because the Tokyo Summer Olympics have been postponed until 2021, we’re hosting the Shokz Games, an AfterShokz summer challenge event to honor past games and get excited for the competition to come. The five-day event is packed with exciting challenges designed for you to complete and compete with fellow participants across the country. When the Games complete on August 10th, one winner will be chosen to receive a Shokz Games Prize Pack.
Who is participating?
Our #ShokzSquad, of course! The Shokz Games will be hosted by Dan Cox, who you may recognize from ABC’s “The Bachelor,” or our very own AfterShokz product packaging. Throughout the week, we’ll also be featuring Olympic athletes from the past and future games who will be joining in on the fun. You’ll be doing your challenges alongside Meb Keflezighi, Missy Franklin, Lacey Henderson, Katie Zaferes, and Aliphine Tuliamuk, respectively.
What are the challenges?
We’ve hand-selected five fun challenges for you to complete during each day of the Shokz Games.
Monday, 8/3: Running For The Gold with Meb Keflezighi: Grab a water bottle, hold it up high like an Olympic torch, and run in place for 1 minute.
Tuesday, 8/4: Wall Sit With Water with Missy Franklin: Grab a cup of water, position yourself into a wall sit, and place the cup of water on your head for 45 seconds. Finish without spilling the cup!
Wednesday, 8/5: Plank Anthem with Lacey Henderson: Plank for 30 seconds while singing a part of your favorite song. Be sure to keep a flat back and tighten your core.
Thursday, 8/6: Stick The Landing with Katie Zaferes: Make a straight line on the ground to represent a balance beam. Take 3 steps on your line, controlling your balance, and hold a funky position for 30 seconds.
Friday, 8/7: Champion Style with Aliphine Tuliamuk: Dress up as you would for your favorite Olympic sport and perform 20 burpees.
