Spartan SGX Group Training Program
Obstacle course races (OCR) are growing increasingly popular due to fun events like Spartan Race and Tough Mudder. These races offer an intense challenge that requires a diverse spectrum of movements. The focus isn’t on one skill, instead, you’re tested on your ability to jump, dive, crawl, climb, carry, drag, and throw, all while running. Ditch the routine and get your adrenaline flowing in these fun classes that challenge your strength and character. Prove yourself this year and sign up to do your first Spartan Race! Go to www.spartanrace.com for more information about the different races, categories, and modalities.

*** SGX (Spartan Group Exercise) is Spartan’s official training program and the leader in obstacle race fitness. SGX is designed for every fitness level and any age, a scientifically-supported solution to get anyone physically and mentally prepared for a Spartan Race, or to live more vitally. SGX is grounded in functional bodyweight exercise to improve agility, athleticism, and power; the workouts are progressive, varying in exercise volume, intensity, and specificity over time. SGX is also about empowerment. Coaches are trained to help people improve their nutritional and lifestyle habits and self-efficacy, all critical to success in the race and in daily life.
Because participating in a Spartan Race requires all-around fitness, SGX training necessarily develops well-rounded athletes. Because every Spartan Race is different, SGX training builds the transformational capability to take on whatever challenge arises.
