The OCR Breakdown is a 4 week educational program that is going to teach participants HOW we train for an obstacle course race. In that 4 weeks, you will be educated on the different training modalities, why we focus on these modalities, how they relate to the sport of OCR and then how do you train for each.
Coinciding with this education, you will be participating each day in your respective OCR training program. We have two programs that are run. Couch to Course™ is an 8-week program with a slow and steady linear progression in the running distance covered and the difficulty/intensity in the workouts. The focus is on building the foundation before you build the house, right? YES! Progressions and just feeling stronger than you were the day before! Cruise the Course™ then is the more advanced program and has a duration of 13 weeks and is a little more detailed…more on this in just a moment…
Within your OCR fitness training program, you will be given nutrition challenges so that you can be at your best level of fitness on race day…and don’t worry, the nutrition challenges are not intimidating…we are all about educating and focusing on the In with the good, not necessarily out with the “bad” mentality. BUT…fitness and health are not just about working moving weight and collecting sweat angels…we want to make sure you are nourishing your body and providing it with the proper fuel it needs.
In addition to training, you will have exclusive access to BONUS material on topics such as hydration, energy expenditure, transitioning to a minimalist shoe, and some of our favorite course hacks to date.
So after the four weeks are up and you’ve graduated the course…you will be provided with the remaining programing. Like I previously mentioned…for those of you who finish Couch 2 Course™, the program is a total of 8 weeks. When your finished, you are more than welcome to move onto the Cruise the Course™ program.
Cruise the Coursers…YOUR PROGRAM is a total of 13 weeks. What’s fantastic about this program is it’s cyclical…which means, with little tweaks here and their to customize to your personal needs (we will dive into what that means in one of our modules) but with small tweaks…you will be able to repeat this 13 week program over and over again. Why is that fantastic? Because each of your workouts are numbered and in your Cruise The Course™ manual, you have the ability to take note on your previous times and modifications. Aka…you have the ability to witness yourself becoming stronger and faster!
Once you sign up, you will receive your welcome package in the mail and a welcome email from your education platform with further instructions.

The training program will take less than one hour.
What equipment will I need?
The only equipment needed in the program is going to be some type of weighted element. Ie: WreckBag or Sandbag…kitty litter if or dog food really. It’s obstacle course racing. We are a little “different”.
