The Savage Race is coming up and we are jumping in on Saturday, July 28th! The race is a 5-7 mile course with 25 of the coolest obstacles in the industry. “It’s more than just a race. It’s about setting personal goals and smashing them. It’s about pushing your limits to defeat the world’s best obstacles. It’s about teamwork and friendship. It’s about the amazing people you will meet on the course. It’s about the mud, the fires, and the Facebook pics. It’s about creating the memory of a lifetime.” Check out more about the event HERE.
There is no substitute for concentrated work. And that’s exactly what you get with skill sessions. 1) You pick the skill, 2) a Coach makes the plan and shows you how to complete it, and 3) then you consistently complete your skill homework. This 3-step process are THE most efficient way for you to reach your movement goals. Ask a coach how you can get started!
