Spartan SGX

OCR Training

Obstacle Course Race (OCR) Training is designed to prepare all athletes for one of the most fun and fastest growing sports in the world – obstacle course racing – and to create a successful atmosphere of community-driven fitness. The training will prepare athletes of any experience level to conquer any OCR race of any distance of difficulty.

Spartan SGX

The foundation of the training is built around Spartan SGX, a proven program that creates the world’s best OCR athletes based on fitness, nutrition, mental skills, and race strategy that optimizes individual performance in Spartan races and other obstacle races (Strong Viking, Mud Masters, Cavemanrun, etc.) as well as in every day life. We have fun moving heavy loads, running, pushing, pulling, jumping, climbing, crawling and conquering any obstacle put in your path. We incorporate a strategy of strength and endurance training that compliments existing training – CrossFit or otherwise – and provides every athlete, regardless of experience level, a blueprint for success.

 

OCR Coach

The training is led by Coach Danny Plesz, a certified Spartan SGX Coach and experienced OCR racer. Danny has successfully completed many OCR events, including Spartan Sprint and Beast events. He is also a qualified and certified Spartan Obstacle Specialist, CrossFit Level 2 Trainer and the owner of CrossFit Heerlen.

OCR Training Schedule

You can conduct OCR Training in a group setting. The group clinics are a blend of training sessions and group races. We also organise a free intro class each year, the so called Spartan Workout. Keep following us on Facebook and Instagram, so you won’t miss it!

OCR Training

Fundamentals

July 23, 2018 – August 27, 2018
Open to any athlete of any ability level. Space is limited. 

If you’re a beginner Obstacle Course Racer or an experienced athlete looking to work on fitness and conditioning, this clinic is for you. We will spend 6 weeks building the foundation that every OCR racer needs: aerobic endurance, strength, power, speed and mobility. This clinic will also be a good way to prepare yourself for your first obstacle course race (for example: Spartan Race, Mud Masters, Strong Viking, etc). We’ll review  running technique, grip strength, mobility and – a lot of – obstacles like Monkey Bars, Wall Climbs, Balance Beams, and more. The clinics will be held both at CrossFit Heerlen, but also at different outdoor locations, so get ready to get dirty and have fun! We’ll also review what distance races you are ready for, gear, and race day preparation. Each athlete will leave the clinic with conditioning drills to apply in their training to prepare for OCR conditioning and fitness.
