SGX is Spartan’s official training program and the leader in obstacle race fitness. Designed for every fitness level and any age, SGX is a scientifically-supported solution to get anyone physically and mentally prepared for a Spartan Race or to live more vitally. SGX is grounded in functional bodyweight exercise to improve agility, athleticism, and power; the workouts are progressive, varying in exercise volume, intensity, and specificity over time. SGX is also about empowerment. Coaches are trained to help people improve their nutritional and lifestyle habits and self-efficacy, all critical to success in the race and in daily life.
Because participating in a Spartan Race requires all-around fitness, SGX training necessarily develops well-rounded athletes. Because every Spartan Race is different, SGX training builds the transformational capability to take on whatever challenge arises.
SGX training will benefit you on the race course or on the soccer field, at the box or at the yoga studio, on the track or on the trail, at work and at home, and in how you feel every day.
Coach Nelson will train you in four domains: Athleticism, Endurance, Strength, and Mind. In addition, your coach can advise on obstacle race strategy, including techniques for overcoming Spartan obstacles. Workouts are typically 50 to 60 minutes long. Coaches may integrate weight-bearing movements and back-to-basics equipment, from kettlebells to pull-up bars to sandbags. And you will also climb, row, run or spin, to build all-around fitness.
Even if you never run a Spartan Race, you will still benefit. After all, given the incredible demands of an obstacle race, a Spartan needs to be an ultimate athlete.
