Universal Gymnastics in Mount Juliet, TN, will be starting a new session of the popular Spartan obstacle race training class for adults starting MONDAY, July 18th.
Spartan Race will be in Lebanon on October 15 & 16 which coincides exactly when this session will finish.  Coach Derek will ALSO lead the obstacle specialist workshop the Friday before (October 14th) where participants can practice on the actual race obstacles.
Coach Derek Miller, a Certified Personal Trainer, was the first Spartan SGX Coach in Wilson County certified to teach this program. He was also one of the first in the world to obtain the Spartan DEKA certification.
The 12 week class is divided into 3 phases so participants of all levels of fitness can get involved.
• The first 4-week phase is primarily focused on body weight exercises to identify and develop your own strengths to better prepare yourself to handle various obstacles as well as start to adjust your nutrition and mentality for a healthier lifestyle.
• The second 4-week phase starts to incorporate resistance (weight) training to improve your strength and continue to build upon the mental and healthy foundation created during phase 1.
• The final 4-week phase is designed to use greater resistance, more challenging movements, and obstacle specific exercises to develop and improve your strength and endurance and refine the healthy habits you have formed in preparation for an actual event.
Over the full 12 weeks, you will shift your mindset from “Can I?” to “I CAN!”.  That is why we are scheduling the class to end just before an event.  Committing to a specific event at the beginning establishes a tangible goal and helps give you the drive to do the work.
Universal Gymnastics has been a pioneer in Mount Juliet by being the first in the area to offer a full-scale Ninja Warrior obstacle course.  We are continuing as leaders by bringing the first Spartan SGX Certified Coach in Wilson County to run this class to help our clients discover the strength they already have inside. Spartan’s goal is to “rip 100 million people off the couch” and through this program, Universal Gymnastics is helping them achieve that goal.
Spartan SGX is the official training program of Spartan Race. With its focus on functional body weight exercises, the program is intended to prepare anyone for an obstacle race, or just to improve overall fitness. Spartan SGX is distinguished by its “periodized” programming and holistic approach to improved health, which takes into account people’s behavior outside of the gym and builds mental, as well as physical, resilience and strength.
Life will always force us to confront obstacles (both physical and mental); through obstacle course training you not only develop strength for the physical challenges, you also exercise your critical thinking skills to figure out how to get through.  This particular course also adds the element of endurance so that you can prove to yourself just how capable you actually are.
