Additionally, clear the area of any extra equipment, people, or other potential obstructions to ensure the video is clear.

  1. All of the steps above should be done with the camera continuously running for the video to be accepted.
  2. Failure to show these steps/items could make the video submission subject to rejection at the judges' discretion.
  3. Refer to The Major Triathlon Challenge demo video on the Major Fitness website for a visual of how the workout and video should flow.
