Spartan SGX

 Prepared for anything life throws at you – that’s Spartan Fit.

– Joe De Sena, Founder – Spartan Race

The Fitness Industry is Broken

We’re sold on fancy machines and high priced equipment. But we don’t need that stuff. In reality, the best “gym” isn’t a gym at all. As Zach Even-Esh says, “The gym is everywhere we look, it’s all around us.” At Conviction Fitness, we don’t believe in using elliptical trainers or yelling at you while sitting on a stationary bike. Those are great ways to burn calories. But they won’t change your life.

We run on trails and hills. We lift sandbags and kettlebells. We carry big rocks and heavy buckets. We climb ropes and monkey bars. We crawl on the ground and hop over walls.

We train outdoors, breathe the fresh air, and have a ton of fun doing it.

Sitting Inside All Day is Boring

Our lives have become so sedentary and boring we don’t even realize it. We’ve forgotten what it means to move and be active. We tell ourselves that because we go to the gym three times a week that we’re “active”. But sitting at a lat pulldown or jogging on a treadmill isn’t going to fix sitting at a desk all day. And it sure isn’t going to make you a better athlete.

Our Spartan SGX program is about putting an end to this unhealthy, sedentary lifestyle. You were made for more than this.

Is Conviction Spartan SGX For Me?

If you have a positive attitude and the desire to work hard, you’ll fit right in. It doesn’t matter what kind of shape you’re in, if you’ve got the right attitude we’ll get you where you want to go.

With this program we’ve helped people lose weight and get off medication. We’ve helped change the lives of individuals and families. And we’ve helped inexperienced endurance athletes reach the World stage, racing on NBC.

This program is life changing.

If you want to feel like an athlete and are ready to put in the effort, this is the program for you. There’s no telling where it will take you.

A True Family

Signing up for our Spartan SGX program is like joining a family. Our group is supportive and caring, and we help push each other to reach our goals. We believe that working out should be a family affair. While we don’t offer child care services, we encourage our athletes to bring their kids (or pets) to our outdoor training sessions.

When your kids see you working out, they’ll want to do it to. It’s the best way to develop a strong, healthy family.

Obstacle Course Racing

Obstacle course racing is the fastest growing participatory sport in the world. In 2014, more people ran obstacle course races (Spartan Race, Tough Mudder, Mud, Sweat, & Tears, etc.) than 10k’s, half-marathons, and marathons combined. And if you’ve ever run one, you know why. Obstacle course racing is fun, challenging, and the adventure of a lifetime!

Spartan SGX

Spartan SGX is the official training program of Spartan Race, the world’s leading Obstacle Course Race series. This program is built around training for complete fitness. During a Spartan SGX workout you can expect to crawl, carry, climb, hang, jump, lift, lunge, pull, push, run, sprint, squat, and more. Everything you did as a kid. Everything your body is designed to do.

We utilize aspects of the Spartan SGX program to help our athletes reach their health, fitness, and life goals.

 Most of us go through life as failures, because we are waiting for the “time to be right” to start doing something worthwhile. Do not wait.
