From 726th in Open to 2x Spartan Race World Championship Qualifier
In 2014 Clay ran his first Spartan Race in Calgary, Alberta, finishing in 726th place in the Open Category. He fell in love with obstacle racing that day. He became one of the first members of our Spartan Race team soon after.
Clay has trained extremely hard the past few years and is reaping the benefits. In 2017, Clay completed the Sun Peaks Ultra Beast, finished 8th in his age group at the Obstacle Course Racing World Championships, qualified for the Spartan Race World Championships for the second year in a row, and was voted our 2017 Male Athlete of the Year.
3x Spartan Race Podium Finisher Doubled Her Strict Pull-ups in Three Months
In her two-year Obstacle Course Racing career, Ara has seriously impressed. She finished her first season ranked 10th in Canada in the Competitive Division. In her sophomore season, she hit three podiums and qualified for the Spartan Race World Championships in her first year running Elite.
An excellent runner, Ara wanted to increase her strength during the offseason, so she became the first person to try our Online Kettlebell Club. Despite a lengthy surf vacation where she was unable to train as she usually would, Ara still managed to improve her max strict pull-ups from 6 reps to 12 in just three months! An absolutely incredible feat.
Our Jaws Dropped on Test Day
Jeremy was one of the first members of the Conviction Kettlebell Club. He started the program pressing the 12kg (26 lbs) kettlebell for his workouts as the 16kg (35 lbs) bell was just too heavy.
After eight weeks of dedicated training with the Kettlebell Club, on our first Test Day, Jeremy amazed us all by clean and pressing the 20kg (44 lbs) bell for 8 strict, solid reps on each arm. Eight weeks later, he pressed the 24kg (53 lbs) bell!
Took 71 Seconds Off her Pace and Finished First Half-Marathon
Jacquelynn had already run a few races before she joined our Spartan SGX team. She enjoyed them, but now she wanted to train for them.
In January 2016 she began training with us and saw some quick changes. Not only did her pull-ups go up and her weight come down, but she also became a better, faster runner.
Before training with us, Jacquelynn’s 5k pace was about 7:43 per km. Nine months later, she finished her first half-marathon at an astonishing pace of 6:32 per km!
