SGX is Spartan’s official training program and the leader in obstacle race fitness. SGX is designed for every fitness level and any age, 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 athleticism, endurance, and strength; 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 racecourse 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.

Our Workouts:

Spartan SGX coaches offer personal training, small- and large-group classes indoors and outdoors, and in boxes, gyms and studios. Some coaches offer beginner and advanced classes; others offer one class and scale the workouts to the ability of participants. The easy-to-follow workouts are novel and variable. Coaches bring individuality and creativity to their programs too, so every class is unique.

Your coach will train you in three primary domains: Athleticism, Endurance, and Strength. 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 may 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.
