5 Ways to Prepare for the Show-Me State Games
1. Train, Hydrate & Dream Big!
Prepare for the Show-Me State Games by not only training your body, but also your mind. Visualize success, and dream big! For the weeks leading up to the Games, focus on your health by eating well and drinking lots of water. It wouldn’t be the Show-Me State Games without the sun and warm weather. When you are hydrated, the possibility of sustaining an injury is lessened and your performance is enhanced.
2. Invite Family & Friends
At the Show-Me State Games, our mission is health, fitness, family and fun for all Missourians. The Games wouldn’t be complete unless you invited your friends and family to cheer you on or participate along side you in the Games. We have 40+ sport offerings, so hopefully everyone can find something to enjoy!
3. Book your Hotel Room
When you come to Columbia for the Games, there is so much more this wonderful city has to offer while you’re visiting! Stay for a while and enjoy the amazing food, wonderful parks and many other activities Columbia has to offer. Be sure to support our hotel partners when choosing where to stay. Our premier partners include, Holiday Inn Executive Center, Stoney Creek Hotel & Conference Center, and Drury Hotels.
