Prepare to Traverse Nets and Climb Ropes
The Spartan Gym’s ethos is functional movement, so you won’t find a floor full of typical gym machines; the brand believes that sitting down to work out is counterintuitive. Buron likens the Spartan mentality to Rocky IV. “If you imagine Rocky training out in the mountains versus Ivan hooked up to the machines, we’re trying to go back to the Rocky way.”
To help build the upper-body strength required to haul yourself over walls, you can choose between 10 hanging ropes for vertical climbs, a seven-foot vertical wall to practice climbing over, or a cargo-net traverse (pictured here), all mimicking the obstacles peppered throughout a real Spartan race.
