This Is Sparta! Shredding the Spartan Workout

designed to get participants in shape for a race and show them how to train on their own.

It was pretty intense for participants and athletes alike, and we even had a few spectators cheering on their favorite Spartans. It’s no coincidence that these races are named for the fierce Greek warriors of old. We were impressed with the grit and drive all athletes showed just by finishing! Sound like fun?

We look forward to running these events in the future, and right now we’re the only facility in Rhode Island that’s doing them!
