SGX is designed for every fitness level and any age, a scientifically-supported solution to get anyone physically and mentally prepared for a Spartan Race, or to live more vitally. SGX is grounded in functional bodyweight exercise to improve agility, athleticism and power; the workouts are progressive, varying in exercise volume, intensity and specificity over time.
SGX training will benefit you on the race course or on the soccer field, at the box or at the yoga studio, on the track or on the trail, at work and at home, and in how you feel every day.
I signed up for the July 2016 PA Spartan Super in December of 2015. 5 months later, I found out I had breast cancer. That was followed by surgery and radiation treatments that ended 4 days prior to the race. As a result, I had a number of physical limitations and restrictions. Instead of postponing the race, Ken said that he would run the race with me all the way through as long as it took to finish. So for 6 hours, I had the most amazing coach, trainer, and friend by my side encouraging me and helping me complete my first Spartan. And yes, I did complete it! Thank you Ken.
When a coach is passionate and encourages you every step of the way you will see that nothing is impossible. I am beyond happy with every session. I always feel proud and great after completing a session because I know I am moving closer and closer to meeting goals all thanks to Ken Peluso. By far the best coach I have ever worked with!
