The Obstacle Circuit February 2020 Newsletter

We’ve made it through January! One month into your new year. So how’s your fitness been? Well guess what, it’s February and regardless it’s your chance to get moving!

The Obstacle Circuit is not just for obstacle enthusiasts. It’s for everyone! We use obstacle style movements to prepare you for any task you might face. We call it Functional Strength. Sure you might be physically strong, if not we can help with that. You may be mentally strong, again we can help if not. What a lot of people don’t understand is that Functional Strength is crucial to your daily life and as important, if not more important than the physical and mental strengths. It’s about the way you move. It makes you more efficient and safe in your every day life. 

For the obstacle course racer it’s obviously important. It will help you save energy on obstacles and while running. It will also keep you safe on course, and get you to the end of your race faster!

So how does our training prepare you for regular life? Think about it this way. Carrying a sandbag is like carrying groceries, dog food or maybe a kid. Trail running or trail hiking on rough terrain will strengthen your ankles. So if you take a bad step you’re less likely to sprain or break your ankle. And everyone loves burpees right? Maybe not, but how often do you get down to pick something up off the floor. You get up out of bed every morning. If you can do a burpee it makes your regular movements easier. Same is true for so much of what we do as it relates to your every day life.

Most importantly the goal is to make you functionally fit so you can do all the things you want to do. Summit mountains, play with your kids, or maybe conquer an obstacle course race! Whatever you want to achieve we’re here to help!
