FITNESS BATTLE: The second Battle at the Box is on this Saturday February 16.

SKILLS will be put to the test and bragging rights will be on the line this weekend in a fun and fast-paced environment.

Scone-based gym 'The Box in Scone' is hosting a fitness competition this Saturday from 8.30am at Shed 4, 31 Hayes Street.

After the first event was held last year, 'Battle at the Box' has gained a lot of attention with 40 teams signed up to the sold-out event.

But part-owner Sean Casey says people can still come along on the day to see what it's all about. 

The fitness centre has a focus on functional and strength training, catering to all ability levels, developing people's strength and confidence.

"We run CrossFit style training, we call it 'functional fitness'," Sean said.

"It's a mix of gymnastics, weight lifting and traditional cardio.

"We incorporate pull-ups, push-ups, kettle bells, skipping and rowing.

"So instead of having one day that is a leg day, or one day that is upper body, we do a full body workout every day, all day."

Mr Casey said they are encouraging people to come along and have a look as teams from Scone, Muswellbrook, Singleton, Tamworth, Moree, Armidale, Newcastle, Dubbo and Orange battle it out.

"We will have a barbecue, cold drinks and coffee available," he said.

Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third.
