How It Works
How it works
1.) Register for the IOQ (Individual Online Qualifier) as an individual from anywhere in the world.
2.) Complete 5 workouts over the course of 3 weeks
3.) Following the IOQ, create your same sex team of 3 or your same sex Masters team of 2. Your team will then be ranked based upon its combined IOQ scores.
4.) Wait and see where your team ranks on the global leaderboard and which division you might qualify for.
The Big Impact Games Open or IOQ, is our individual online qualifier to the Big Impact Games Championship.
Whether you are looking for a virtual competition or want to qualify for our 3-day championship event, this event is for you! All from the comfort of your own gym.
The BIG Open IOQ will consist of 5 workouts over the course of 21 days on a blind leaderboard.
