BECOME A SPARTAN

Welcome to Phalanx

Spartan Race Group Fitness Program

Phalanx -- named after the impenetrable formation Spartan warriors used in combat -- is a group fitness program guaranteed to help you crush your Spartan Race goals.

Our Spartan Race training program includes group workouts and Race Simulations. All workouts and race simulations are held at various outdoor locations in Regina.

Spartan Race is an outdoor event. The races take place rain or shine, snow or slush. And so, it's only logical we train outdoors as well. Our team has schlepped sandbags through snow, whipped over wet walls, and burpeed in blistering heat. The elements add to the challenge and prepare us both mentally and physically for any obstacle thrown our way.

In the words of the great Thucydides, "he is best who is trained in the severest school."

If you don't train in wet, cold, or hot conditions leading up to the race, you can't expect to perform in wet, cold, or hot conditions on race day. To succeed in a Spartan Race, you must leave the confines of the gym.

By incorporating Race Simulations into our training, we give our team an opportunity to try different obstacles and leave their comfort zone behind. These events, like mini Spartan Races, are tons of fun and worth the price of admission alone.

Choose Your Own Adventure

We train Spartans wanting to race for gold as well as those who just want to survive and have fun. Whatever your goals are, we'll help you crush them.

Multiple Workout Options

It's silly for everyone to do the exact same workout. We train as a group -- and our workouts are always similar -- but having an elite athlete training to win a Spartan Ultra do the same workout as a first-time racer isn't our style. With every group workout, you have the option to complete the Alpha, Beta, or Ruck version of the workout.

Finish as a Team

At most races, we have a group complete the race as a team -- like a true phalanx. The pace is determined by the group (a relaxed, leisurely pace) and no one is left behind. We get through obstacles together. We do burpees together. We leap through the fire and cross the finish line together. This approach to the race is perfect for those new to Spartan Race, or those looking for the unique challenge of rucking a Spartan Race.

Compete as an Individual

Since day one, we've had individuals running in Elite or Age Group at Spartan Races around the world. These racers push and support each other in training which has resulted in dozens of podium finishes and Age Group National Championships for our athletes. If you're looking for a group of incredible athletes (and even better people) to train with and push you to be your best, Phalanx has you covered.

Finish as a Team

There's something to be said for overcoming challenges as a team.

Obstacles don't seem quite as daunting when you've got a group of soldiers by your side. And there's no better way to bond than through mud, sweat, and tears.

We've helped countless individuals crush their first Spartan Race and have the experiences of a lifetime.

Compete as an Individual

Since 2015, our Spartan Race athletes have:

  • Reached the podium of dozens of Spartan Races
  • Finished first place as a team in several Spartan Race events
  • Qualified for and participated in numerous World Championships

If you're looking for individual glory, we can take you to the next level.
