The art of living is more wrestling than dancing.

Why Spartan Race WOD?
Because they are committed. Because they are hungry not to just show up and get through a Spartan Race, but they are hungry to show up and dominate the clock with a peak performance. Spartan Race is here to help you achieve your fitness goals.
As always, take the WOD as a general outline to best meet your current fitness and goals. We can’t dial into every Spartan’s workout schedule. Use these suggested WOD’s as a starting point to develop your own Spartan training regiment.
Please, always consult a medical professional before beginning or performing any of these workouts.
