Give it your all
When it comes to getting fit and ready to compete in any event, the type of training you do is pretty much dictated by your sport – With the rise of obstacle racing as a sport that demands endurance, agility, strength, power and balance, athletes everywhere are taking on the Obstacel Race challenge to improve their performance across the board.
Total discipline: mind, body and spirit
The huge benefit of training for an Obstacle Race event is the way you push yourself to extremes in your physical and mental capacity for the new and unexpected. Your body and mind need to be ready for anything and conditioned to keep going, no matter how tough the obstacles are.
CrossFit style training is a great way to prepare for an Obstacle Race as it doesn't focus on any one type of training. It's specialty is its style of generalism. CrossFit is a fitness program designed around the things you do in the real world. It combines exercises from things like weightlifting, gymnastics, and track and field, and mix’s it up so your body is always adapting, getting stronger, faster, better conditioned. Nearly all of the components in the CrossFit system are relevant to obstacle race training and it can help you meet the demands for strength, endurance, stamina, agility, balance, and coordination necessary for your race.
