Frequently Asked Questions
What is Syphus Training™?
Syphus Training™ is a bona fide sport of exercise in a genre of fitness called High Intensity Progressive Circuit Training™. Each hour-long workout presents a different challenge in which a list of physical Tasks are to be completed for a score. These scores are tabulated in a company-wide database providing for a comprehensive statistical look at your fitness progression and for comparison against athletes on the turf.

Likewise, it’s a perfect way to break up the monotony of boring training routines.

What are Circuits?
In Syphus Training™ we have over 70 different circuits. Each circuit is poses a different evolution, or progression of tasks which makes every workout a new experience. Overcoming each circuit requires different strategy and physical output.
What is an ROQ?
Relative Overall Quotient, or ROQ, is a score that Syphus Training™ participants work to attain and improve. Consider this number to be your fitness IQ, or fitness credit score of sorts. This number is graded on a scale from 1-1000 with scoring about 1000 only being possible if you finish a routine in under an hour. This number serves several purposes; It can show you your current state of fitness, it will serve as a way to monitor your progress and it will motivate you by creating a healthy level of competition amongst others involved in Syphus Training ™.
How is the ROQ derived?
Many factors go into figuring out one’s Relative Overall Quotient. The simplest explanation is that we use something called the ROQ Formula which takes every Task’s difficulty, the the time in which they’re completed in, and calculates a score based on these numbers.
What is a Boulder?
We have several different Boulders, also known as averages, that we record. Namely, we have a Season, Career and 30-day Boulder.
