Women Participating in Spartan Race

OCR classes are a great way to get race-ready. A proprietary system emphasizing foundational bodyweight movements and periodized training, OCR functional workouts are varied and novel and build balanced, multi-faceted athletes who excel in all-over strength, athleticism and endurance. OCR classes can benefit everyone, even when they are not training for a Spartan Race, Desert Warrior Challenge, Tough Mudder, Wadi Adventure Race or any OCR race.

Learn from your certified OCR Coach how to stick with your training, which—combined with a healthy lifestyle—can actually lead to improved fitness results and be race-ready, leave the competition in the dust and maybe…Stand On The podium!
