So many option to get you ready for that next Obstacle Course Race! Visit as many times as you need during open gym to get ready or really commit and do several a week, whatever works. 

Open Gym

Drop in anytime to train on OCR obstacles such as walls, rigs, rope climb, traverse walls, and many other obstacles seen at a race. There is always staff on hand that could help with technique as needed. You could even use the fitness room as long as there is not a class going on. We have wreckbags, kettlebells, battle ropes, jump ropes, and other equipment to get your own workout in. We have Open Gym 7 days a week so any day can be a day of training. 

6 Weeks to Sparta

This program consists 6 weeks of a 45 minute workout followed by 45 minutes of obstacle training with a Spartan SGX Coach. These classes are the perfect lead up to any OCR, not just Spartan Races. You’ll learn how to climb a wall, climb a rope, carry heavy things properly, throw a spear, move more efficiently, and many more skills. Trainings run on Thursdays from 7 - 8:30 pm.
