The judging panel for the Jumping Fitness Championship 2019 has been announced today.
This panel of managers and fitness enthusiasts come from various professional backgrounds but all have these in common… passion for jumping fitness and compassion for the poor. They will be judging contesting teams on a variety of criteria, including originality, synchronicity, creativity, techniques and strength.
The Jumping Fitness Championship was first inaugurated in 2017 to determine the best teams, to boosts jumping fitness standards, to popularize the sport and to promote Jumping Singapore. In conjunction with the Singapore Jump Fest 2019, we are grateful to be able to run the competition again this year, thanks to the generous sponsorship and enthusiastic support of our partners and stakeholders.
