The 2011 Maximum Warrior Competition Tests Special Ops & Civilians In Military-Inspired Challenges
LOS ANGELES –-(Ammoland.com)- Maximum Warrior is a one-of-a-kind competition that tests twenty contestants in fifteen action-packed, adrenaline-filled challenges.
Presented by MAXIM, in partnership with the Jeep Brand, Maximum Warrior is broken down in to two separate programs – the authentic Maximum Warrior Competition that pits special ops operatives against one another; and the inaugural Maximum Warrior Pro-Am that pairs a special ops operative with a civilian contender to create a 10 team competition.
The competition was recently completed at the state-of-the-art T1G training facility in Crawfordsville, Arkansas. Maximum Warrior, today with the Soldier Rescue Challenge, launched its all-new website and will begin airing weekly webisodes through December.
All 20 competitors are part of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to test their physical prowess, strategic decision making skills and luck in this gut-wrenching and adrenaline pumping week-long challenge. For the weeks following the initial launch, fans will get a behind-the-scenes look at each competition with newly uploaded videos featuring on-site mission footage, Warrior interviews, biographies and more at MaximumWarrrior.com.
“Maximum Warrior is about authenticity. For the second year in a row, Maxim has teamed with the Jeep brand to develop the world’s most innovative and interactive military-inspired competition. Not only do we deliver a real-life series of challenges for the competitors, but the competition is also a tribute to our men and women serving in the Armed Forces, and especially to our special ops operators,” said Ben Madden, Maxim’s Chief Revenue Officer.
“There is simply no other reality-based competition that allows for the highest ranks of the military to interact at this level with civilians.”
2011 Maximum Warrior (Active Special Ops Operators)
With 10 special ops operators and 10 grueling challenges, the Maximum Warrior competition promises
non-stop action. Each week will feature a new competitive mission in which Warriors’ skills will be tested in real-world military situations. Tasks include extractions, terrain navigation around IED simulations, direct combat, off-road driving capability, agility courses, special ops intelligence gathering and more. MaximumWarrior.com will host weekly video updates of the challenges and candid on-location outtakes of the soldiers, all culminating with the announcement of the 2011 Maximum Warrior winner in November.
In addition to the bragging-rights including title of 2011 “Maximum Warrior,” the competition’s winner will also receive a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Call of Duty: MW3 Edition vehicle. As the few lucky contestants play out the real-life mock missions of Maximum Warrior, fans of the program will be able to follow along during the competitions at www.maximumwarrior.com. As if that isn’t enough, viewers can enter the Maximum Warrior national sweepstakes for the chance to win their very own 2012 Jeep Wrangler Call Of Duty: MW3 Edition.
2011 Maximum Warrior Pro-Am (Civilian Competition)
10 civilians with no formal military background were randomly selected on MaximumWarrior.com to compete in five military-style challenges. Paired with a special ops operator, the civilian competitors were given a three-day crash course in heavy-duty weapons training by the T1G instructors. Following the training, the Pro-Am competition consisted of five missions, including extractions, terrain navigation around IED simulations, agility courses and live-fire combat.
