Are you training for an Obstacle Course Challenge?

Spartan Race Obstacle

Obstacle Course Challenges and Adventure Races are not for the light-hearted. They will test ever fibre inside you!

How ready are you?

Training for the known, unknown and unknowable!

You can learn to climb those cargo nets, ropes and jump over fire through sport specific training but will that be enough. You see, Sports Specific Preparedness (SPP) training will teach you the skills of the individual disciplines and obstacles, but what they do not do is train you in an all-weather environment that challenges you with the cold, the mud, the rain, the ice, frozen ground, rutted, rooted and slippery surfaces. Neither how to deal with the thousands of competitors and lunatics (there is always some) around you. Just consider about how the terrain is going to be once 2,000 competitors have ploughed through and left the remnants on the obstacles.

Wild Forest Gym Obstacle Course Training & Adventure Race Training is an outdoor fitness all-weather training program that exposes you to all elements in the forest. You can’t change the weather, but with our outdoor fitness training program we will teach you how you can change your body’s temperature thermostat. You will experience the mud, rain, ice, snow, cold and heat. Can’t guarantee the fire but we can guarantee that we will fire you up! So you are ready for whatever you are thrown up against!

We are currently training for the following Obstacle Course Challenges 26th Jan to 30th April.

Every aspect of Wild Forest Gym’s Obstacle Course Training & Adventure Race Training is about training the unknown and unknowable so that you are versed, confident and agile to adapt physically and mentally to the challenges around you.

We will have you:

  • Carrying, lifting, catching, throwing, pulling and pushing trunks, logs and stones;
  • Crawling on all four’s – backward, forward, sideways and upside down;
  • Jumping up, down and along on the ground and other forest elements.
  • Using the trees to climb and balance on one leg, two legs, and on all four’s, going forwards, backwards, up and down.

Spartan Race competitorsWe will prepare you physically, mentally and spiritually, so that when you turn the bend and you hit the next obstacle or mud ploughed trail you can contend and adapt with confidence and self-esteem to whatever you are confronted with.

Our Obstacle Course Training & Adventure Race Training will train you hard so that you can learn how to use Functional Natural Movement Techniques to develop yourself on all of the above levels and learn how to use your body, your muscles your mind in a way that you were born to do. Learn how to use gravity to run and power forward.

As a ‘Warrior’ you can and you will achieve and surpass your objective. You will even be able to laugh and have fun!

There are NO LIMITS, it is just a mind game!
