The Navy SEAL Fitness Challenge is a FREE atlhletic event which consists of a 500-yard swim, push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups and 1.5-mile run.

Grevers and Nymeyer will put themselves to the test along with the growing hundreds of Phoenix-area residents who have already pre-registered on the event website. The teammates will also be available to chat with fans and will help hand out awards to the best-performing participants.
The Navy SEAL Fitness Challenge kicked off in Boston in 2007 and continued in 2008 in San Antonio, Tx., Los Angeles, Calif., Dearborn, Mich., Chicago, Ill. and Atlanta, Ga. The Navy SEAL Fitness Challenge event will take place on Saturday, Mar. 14 at the Student Recreation Complex at ASU.
