How to Prepare for your Spartan Race

Are you thinking of taking on your first Spartan Race or want to take your obstacle course race skills to the next level? At One Academy – we’re taking the guesswork out of preparing for your Spartan Race with a comprehensive 8-week training program.

What to expect?

The 8 week One Academy Spartan Race training program will have you ready to conquer any obstacle that comes your way. Designed by 60 x OCR Champion and Spartan Pro Team Member, Jesse Bruce, the program will start by building a solid base of strength and endurance to target muscle groups and energy systems that will be used during your Spartan Race. 

In our fully equipped facility in Toronto, you’ll develop the fundamentals and techniques used to conquer specific Spartan Race obstacles such as the rig, rope, wall, monkey bars, and spear throw.

As we progress through the 8 weeks, you’ll refine and master your movements and obstacle skills so you’re ready when it matters most – on race day! 

In addition to weekly in-person training sessions, you’ll receive a weekly One Academy Spartan Training newsletter with advice from your Coaches on how to prepare, as well as a suggested run program to supplement your training.
