Meet the founder

I created Rokman to eliminate barriers and inspire action

I'm Terry, Rokman Founder and challenge-enthusiast from Penarth, South Wales. Witnessing countless individuals succumb to the pressures of modern life, lacking direction and purpose, I felt compelled to create Rokman. It's not just about fitness; it's about igniting a fire within, challenging the status quo, and redefining what's possible.

"I experienced the transformative power of challenges first-hand"

Flashback to 2013, I hit rock bottom health-wise. Years of sloth-like living, boozing, puffing away, and indulging in greasy takeouts left me a mess: unfit, hefty, and downright miserable. I turned to fitness challenges to jolt myself into action. Experiencing their transformative power on my physical and mental health firsthand, I knew I had message worth sharing.

"Traditional race events were uninspiring and inconvenient"

However, as I delved deeper into the challenge world, I noticed a glaring gap. People were drowning in their daily commitments, lacking both time and motivation to pursue their fitness goals. Traditional race events felt all felt a bit samey, uninspiring and inconvenient, burdened with hefty entry fees, restrictive dates and travel hurdles. Online challenges, on the other hand, were limited to distance accumulators and lacked the essence of true grit and determination I wanted to see. It was clear: something had to change.

Speed and explosive power are crucial in running, fitness, and life. The speed test aims to record your three fastest times for a 400m run. You are allowed up to 5 minutes of rest between attempts. While walking is allowed, strive to cover the distance as quickly as possible.

Beat Previous

Take on the mile for time challenge to push your aerobic capacity to the limit. This test evaluates how well your heart and lungs supply oxygen during exercise, crucial for running, fitness, and overall sports performance.

Compete to cover a mile in record time and earn points based on your speed. Want more points? Opt for a rematch, but this time you'll only score if you beat your own previous time.

Attempts can be taken on separately at different days and times throughout the week.

Week 3


Bring Sally Up





If you're familiar with the Bring Sally Up challenge, you know the drill. But for those who aren't, it involves playing Moby's song "Flower" with the repetitive lyrics "Bring Sally up, bring Sally down, lift and squat, gotta tear the ground." Your task is to up on one rep every time the song says "bring Sally up", and back down on "bring Sally down".

Challengers are required to perform the challenge for both push-ups and squats. Depending on your level of fitness you can chose the alternative movement of kneeling push-ups.

If we can confidently identify people either cheating or doing the challenge incorrectly, we will notify the competitor privately via email.At the end of the day, the leaderboard is just a bit of competitive fun. These challenges are personal tests of resilience. If people decide to cheat, they’re only cheating themselves.
