When I started Spartan training I believed it was something that the gym had been missing and a chance to give certain members the chance to indulge in the more rigorous aspects of training in a group scenario.
Having a keen interest in boxing, I’ve always loved the gritty blood, sweat and tears atmosphere found throughout the boxing gyms across the world. It’s no mistake that those who spend time perfecting the sweet science of boxing are supremely conditioned athletes who have learned that extra bit of steel through putting in 110% effort.
As well as focus pad work, I share a few of the secrets that have been taught to me over the years that go into creating supremely fit athletes.
There are no bells and whistles to go with some cheesy music, just a strong work ethic and desire to better yourself that keeps everybody getting fitter, stronger and conditioned further than they had ever thought was possible.
Make no mistake; the first few weeks will be hellishly difficult. As you persist however, you’ll find that your endurance and work capacity will sky-rocket. Whether you’re a casual runner, gym goer, sports person or martial artist, you are guaranteed progress.
