Our annual Valley Warriors mud-fest is happening in Leeds on June 26th this year so we have 16 weeks to get in shape for the 12km obstacle event.
What is Warrior Training?
An hour of (non-boxing) physical training that includes strength and conditioning work, short runs, sprints, and outdoor circuits.
Who's it for?
The training is specifically designed for those entering the Total Warrior event as part of our team but is open to anyone who wants to join in and get fit. You are also welcome to join in our training if you are part of a different team or entering as an individual.
You can drop in and out of these sessions for £5 or buy all 16 sessions for £70 (£10 saving). If you are a Box 4 Fitness monthly member, you can attend these sessions as part of your membership.
What to wear?
Normal gym gear to begin with for the next few weeks then we plan to go outside as the weather warms up (she says hopefully). If you don't own a pair of trail shoes and are participating in the event, I'd recommend getting some and wearing them in beforehand. Please post on the facebook group
for suggestions on brands from others. I have a pair of innov8 X tallon trail shoes which have lasted me well for 3 years so far but they are a bit pricey at around £80.
Can I join the team?
The Valley Warriors team is now full at 24 people and we have another team on the go headed up by Rhea Carsmith so if you do want a place, let us know and we'll put you on the reserve list if anyone drops out. You can also register as an individual, train with us and then join the team for the event on the day.
If you have signed up for our team, you need to get yourself to Wednesday Warriors training as often as possible between 9 March and June 26. Circuit classes run every Tuesday and Saturday as an alternative if you can't make the Wednesday training every week.
If you'd like to join in the fun, but not compete, you are welcome to do this too.
