What is TaMaarta?
OFFICIALS AND ATHLETES GUIDELINES FOR TM EXERCISES
During a competitive challenge (Meets, TM10s, and Half Challenges), two athletes will go head to head to complete as many repetitions of a chosen TaMaarta 10 exercise as possible within 60 seconds. Each round is followed by a 120 second rest which will allow for the athletes to prepare for the next exercise. An athlete’s score for each round is the total number of reps he or she is able to achieve within the allotted time. The athlete achieving the most reps in this head to head round will earn one additional point to be used in the case a tie breaker is required later in the competition.
Officials are to count each rep that is completed correctly. This should be done in a voice so that the athlete can hear. Officials should also communicate to the athlete when athlete is not completing the exercise according to TaMaarta 10 requirments (i.e. you need to get lower; ball needs to reach over your head; keep your hips down). Officials SHOULD NOT count reps that are not done properly. However, Officials should give athletes every opportunity to correct themselves in order to be as successful as possible. At the end of each round, Officials should write down the number of reps completed and initial the athlete’s score card.

TaMaarta is dedicated to bringing health, function, and accessibility to the world of competitive fitness. The fitness community shouldn’t be about celebrating those who look fit, it should praise those who are. Muscles are for movement, not for show. Join TaMaarta to move competitive fitness in the right direction, and show the world that it’s time to do fitness the natural way.
A DRUG FREE ENVIRONMENT
TaMaarta proudly promotes drug-free, functional fitness. By dialing down the pressure to build additional muscle to appear “stage ready” and limiting prizes and payouts to certified Drug Free competitors, we fight back against the dangerous effects of performance enhancers and damaging chemical supplements.
We remain dedicated to changing the harmful practices and drug-fueled image of the competitive fitness industry by accommodating competitors transitioning into the natural lifestyle. Athletes can join TaMaarta as Natural competitors, those who are not taking any of the organization’s list of banned substances and have been free of these for the past 12 months, or as Committed competitors, those who do not meet the criteria of Natural competitors, but have pledged to compete without use of these substances for the next 12 months. After a 12 month period has passed, Committed competitors will earn the privilege of competing as Natural TaMaarta Members.
A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD
Fitness isn’t about looking good, it’s about being functional. The elements of High Intensity Interval Training that set TaMaarta apart from traditional fitness competitions serve to level the playing field. At TaMaarta events, appearing aesthetically fit serves as only a portion of an athlete’s overall score. Pairing stage presentation with functional fitness challenges ensures that competitors steer clear of the dangerous behaviors that often come in the days directly pre competition.
No more starving before meets, no more tough-to-counteract genetic aesthetic advantages, and no more limited participant pool. The TaMaarta 10 Challenge phase takes TaMaarta to an unprecedented level of accessibility where function counts, training helps, and precise & proper nutrition is essential.
A NATURAL COMMUNITY
It can be easy to give in to the short-term benefits of harmful substances when it seems like everyone in an organization is using them. At TaMaarta, we combat chemical supplement abuse at every level, beginning with our community.
Join a dedicated community of athletes to share, discuss, and develop the best practices for building muscle mass, definition, and function without hurting your body’s long term function and aesthetic. Experience competitive fitness like you’ve never seen it before: community-inspired, drug free, and encouraging at every turn, with TaMaarta.
