With the summer just round the corner I decided to start working out in order to get into shape. I really love challenge, what is more I am tired of dull and boring training such as jogging, press-ups and sit-ups. After some research on the internet I’ve found out a perfect way to stay fit and to entertain myself – Spartan Race.
What is Spartan racing? It is a race series with different levels and styles or racing. Spartan racing is completely different from ordinary jogging. You not only work out and improve your physical strength, you also have fun!
So you must be asking yourself “Why Spartan?” The clear answer is because the Spartans were tough as nails and in the world we live in today, you gotta be tough!
Why race Spartan obstacle course races? Because we all thrive under pressure, survival of the fittest. Spartan Race’s goal is simple – to get you off your couch, throw you in the mud & trails, and feed you one tough endurance event day that will be the adrenalin rush of your life.
The Spartan races are held all over the globe and offer you a unique challenge. The obstacles you overcome during the race include fire, mud, water, barbed wire, and, as they have it on their web-site, even Hell on Earth!
What is more, you will not be given any map to study. And never relax as there are additional obstacles that may catch you off guard, like, for example, curve balls.
Spartan races “put on different kinds of events, all designed for specific styles of racing and fun. Whatever your level or goals, whether you are a determined champion looking to take home top honors or a member of a team of 30 friends looking to just have a blast, Spartan Race is the venue for your extreme pursuits.”
Spartan Races include three levels of courses. For beginners there are 3-mile races, more challenging are Olympic Distance (8 miles) and Ultra Distance (10-12 miles). All the courses are designed to push you to the limits of your physical and emotional abilities. You will be really surprised to see what you can do!
You will run, jump, crawl in mug and overcome various obstacles in your way to the finish. What is also great about Spartan races that you can do it together with your whole family, kids including. Yes, I mean it. There are special courses for children. So, you can get a unique and inspiring hobby to stay closer with your dearest.
Moreover, Spartan Races will make it easier for you to make yourself work out, as they offer their subscribers a weekly newsletter, and inspiring blogs to help them get to the finish line.
