Ok, this is a new one to this blog Life in America. However, it is interesting that I find out about this right now. I am just thinking about how I have fallen away from my New Years Resolution of getting fit and along comes this information that I had not heard of. Maybe this is the time for me to get back on track with this program. Maybe it is time for all of you fellow readers to get back on track with this program. Here is what I have heard about the program called Spartan Racing.
Spartan racing is the new revolutionary way to work out and push your body to the limits with their world leading obstacle courses. There are many different styles of racing and many different cultures of racers with races ranging from muddy 3+- mile events with 10 or more obstacles up to 40+ mile events.
If you are a beginner, as I am, the challenging 5k sprint trail races are a great way to get off your couch and start living. From beginner trail racers and mud run participants to hardcore warriors, tough guys and marathon runners, they all come out to test themselves on the insane obstacle races! 99.9% of all people who try this event will finish, and 100% will have their thirst for mud & trail racing fully satisfied!
Spartan Race was created with the idea that working out is not always torturous. It can be fun and entertaining, that is if you look at it in the eyes of a Spartan. What's even better is that all ages can enjoy the new muddy way to stay fit as long as they have the determination and self discipline to be part of this new fitness frenzy!
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. Spartan Race is also one of the only events offering a kids race and a women’s network with Spartan Chicked- the race is one that promotes family, community, and overcoming obstacles.
Spartan Race also provides its participants with a daily workout, a weekly newsletter, and inspiring blogs that will help them get from the couch to the finish line within 45 days. It really is as simple as signing up, showing up, and never ever giving up. Sure it will be tough but if you follow the plan and daily tips this will become a life changing experience. Join the 300,000 plus that will participate this year.
You will understand what it means to be a Spartan at the finish line... but don't wait to sign up as their races do sell out!
