Will Personal Training Help Me In The Spartan Race

by Neighborhood Trainers Finding a trainer is a personal choice

Tackling a Spartan Race may seem fun and exciting in its challenges. It may seem great to face unpredictable obstacles over the course of a distance of between three and four miles. However, training for a race with so many unknowns may seem daunting. There are definites to the training process when a Spartan Race is in your future. They are outlined below.

Endurance

As noted above, the race covers three to four miles and may include as many as 15 obstacles - or more for a particularly challenging version of the race. Your body has to be prepared for more than a walk in the park or a short trip on a bicycle over flat terrain. Build on your endurance through various exercise plans and make sure you can stick with the program and complete the race.

Speed

Part of a Spartan Race is how fast you can complete all of the obstacles. Therefore, you need to be ready and able to complete various challenges in a quick manner. Training to improve on speed and agility can be very important to the chances of success in your first Spartan Race.

Upper and Lower Body Strength

The body is put through any number of unexpected challenges during the Spartan Race. For those who have weakness in one area, it is likely to impede their efforts to complete the entire course. This is not a position to be in when you have trained long and hard to complete such a strenuous race. Instead, focus on the areas that might need extra attention and have an all-around effective strength to get through the course successfully.

Burpees

It is hard to predict what type of obstacles will be included in the Spartan Race you take part in. If there is an obstacle you aren’t willing to tackle, your penalty will be burpees. Therefore, it is a necessity to be prepared to do burpees successfully.

There are important nuances to training for a Spartan Race that a person working on their own may not clue into. That is why it is wise to invest in a personal trainer for Spartan Race NYC, as that investment can go a long way toward ensuring the race is a success. Find a Chelsea personal trainer that has experience in Spartan Races and all they entail. You’ll be grateful for that extra boost of preparedness when you get on the course and experience the race for the first time.
