The project was designed to provide support to people who wish to take and pass the "Ready for Labor and Defense" (GTO) fitness test. In 2020-2021, the project will be implemented in two cities: Voronezh and Gubkinsky.

Sports facilities and taking the fitness tests

In 2020, Voronezh and Gubkinsky will welcome two new state-of-the-art sports facilities scheduled to be inaugurated in those two cities. In the spring and summer of 2021, these facilities will be hosting training sessions and centralized testing of athletes to the GTO fitness standards. This promises to evolve into a real sports festival and will feature an entertainment program. Registration for testing is already open. Once the project is over, the cities will continue using these facilities for various sporting events.

Video tutorials and training sessions

15 training videos have been produced for the project’s prospective participants. They introduce viewers to the GTO tests and standards, and explain the nuances of getting well prepared for and successfully passing the tests. The videos feature Alexey Shayev, Russia’s undisputed champion in classical bodybuilding, an absolute champion of the "Arnold Classic" contest (USA), vice-president of the National bodybuilding community, acting as the viewer’s personal trainer.

The project also offers online training sessions allowing participants to learn more about healthy living and become better acquainted with sports standards and rules.
