So if I turn 45 on May 3rd, 2019 or before, I would compete in the 45-49 age division The top 30 Men/20 Women in 35-39 division move on, the top 30 Men/20 Women in the 40-44 division move on, the top 20 Men/10 Women in the 45-49 division move on, and the top 15 Men/20 Women in the 50+ move on.

The Team Division is for Pro and Amateur athletes that want to compete on a team. There are two team divisions at the TFX competition in January: Pro Team and Amateur Team. The team captain will register your team and will be in charge of inputting all the scores for the Online Qualifier. Teams will need to sign up all four athletes, 2 men and 2 women. If you are not sure about whether to compete with a team or as an individual, you may sign up for both divisions but may need to set up with a different email address. In the case of your team making it and you as an individual making it, you may find a new person to compete at TFX in your place, if you choose to compete as an individual.
Every team member will complete the workout individually using the Pro/Amateur Division standards. The team captain, the one who registered the team, will be responsible each week of entering all the individual scores in for their team. The leaderboard will automatically add up all their team member's score for one team score.
The teams ranked 1-20th will qualify as Pro Teams and the teams ranked 21-50th will qualify as Amateur Teams for TFX competition in January.
This division is for the athlete that is looking to take on a new challenge and have some fun competing with friends but does not advance to the TFX competition in January. This division is a great fit for someone that wants to try out an online competition for the first time and support their community. The online qualifier is the community division's competition!
