The fitness craise has been a hot topic of conversation for the past few months with athletes and athletes groups alike, with many claiming they’ve been overlooked.
While this is not the first time fitness has been on the agenda for the elite, the rise of the sport is the biggest news of the year, as the popularity of sports like gymnastics, volleyball and swimming have skyrocketed.
“The growth of the X-Games, the XSOC, and the Olympics is a fantastic story, but we’ve had a lot of people forget about sports in general,” says Ryan Tamburro, owner of Xsports Fitness in New York City.
“The XSOTF is a really unique event that’s just so popular and it’s very much a new sport for so many people, and we have a huge following of athletes.”
Tamburros biggest drawcard is the high-level competitions he runs in the Xtreme Sports Arena, where athletes compete to earn medals and other recognition.
“We have a lot to be excited about,” Tamburgos co-founder, Kevin Ollie, told NBC News.
“We’re one of the few gyms that’s doing all-star events in all-girl events.
We’re also doing all of the Olympic events, so it’s exciting to have so many sports at once.”
Ollie and Tamburbos cofounders have been busy preparing the X Sports Fitness Arena for the event and working to get athletes and coaches from all over the world to participate in the event.
Ollies daughter, Laila, is a competitive gymnast who has competed at the X Sport Fitness Arena and is currently competing in the World Series of Sports in Atlanta.
Laila said that when she was a kid, she had no idea how to do the snatch or clean and jerk, and was amazed when she started training to be an Olympic gymnast.
“When I was a little girl, my mom would tell me to be more like Laila.
I thought she was crazy,” Ollies son, Nick, said.
“So I kind of went through that and started training, but then I did all the gymnastics for my school.
That’s where I started doing gymnastics and that’s where my interest really began.”
For the first couple of months, the only thing that was really holding back the growth of XSports Fitness was the fact that it was a high-risk event.
“For us, we had to do all of our events, all of these high-stakes events that can put a lot on your shoulders,” Olliottes co-owner, Joe, said in an interview with NBC News in September.
“When you’re an athlete, the focus is on the sport and training, and that can be a big barrier.
For us, our biggest challenge is training and getting the most out of athletes.
We’ve had some athletes get hurt or fall out of the top four and we’ve been pretty lucky to have gotten back up to the top.”
The biggest challenge for the Xscs is getting the best athletes and the most dedicated coaches.
For instance, many of the athletes who compete at the high level events have a history of injuries, and some of them have been injured for years, Tambrues cofounder, Ryan Olliet, told ABC News.
“A lot of the injuries that have happened are the result of being in the wrong weight class,” Olloies son Nick said.
“You have to take care of the athlete first.
If you want to be the best at the sport, you have to put yourself in a safe environment and not have any injuries or bad habits.”
Athletes are required to have a medical clearance from the American College of Sports Medicine to compete in the competitions, but not all gyms have the same medical background, Tampos cofounder and co-CEO, Dan Soderstrom, told the Associated Press in October.””
There’s a lot for athletes to do, but it’s really hard to put the effort into it.”

“If we have an athlete with a medical condition that’s affecting their performance, we will not accept them into the XSCF,” he said.
While the majority of athletes and their coaches are highly trained, the majority are not.
“Many of the people who compete in these high level competitions are not really qualified,” Oellies co-operator, Nick Soder, told reporters in October, referring to some of the medical conditions athletes have.
“A lot people have to work really hard at their sport, and they’re not getting the training that they need to be good athletes.”
While some of these athletes have found their way to the elite level, others have been put in a position where they’ve never competed
