Number of Lanes: Also known as stations, this will determine how many competitors can complete the workout simultaneously. It usually varies according to the available venue space and the equipment needed for the workout. Don't worry you can change this later.

Time Between Heats: Set the amount of time that you would like to have between each heat in a division.
Time Between Divisions: Set the amount of time that you will need between divisions to change out equipment and prepare for the next division.
