The Tough Mudder training program, set up by Okanagan Peak Performance Inc, was a definite et in completing the Tough Mudder challenge held at Whistler in June 2012. The program helped to increase endurance to last the entirety of the 19.2km challenge with ease. I felt as though I could have gone for a second lap on the course! Knowing that there was going to be a lot of hill running in the challenge I was a little deterred when we started the sand hill training. I felt as though this was going to be my weakness when it came to completing TM. However with the training program in place and commitment to the program my times went down and my number of completions went up. I enjoyed this program because it pushed my body to go longer and harder at every exercise over the course of the 3 months, which allowed me to complete the challenge with ease.
If you follow the program as it is laid in its entirety than I have no doubt that not only will you be able to complete Tough Mudder but you will be able to enjoy it as well.
You will get the best results by picking one and following one program. It makes me think of someone playing roulette at the casino and thinking they better their odds of winning by betting on every number on the table. Even IF your number comes up you haven’t really won. And for most people their number doesn’t come up and they definitely end up losing.
I can only speak to the physicality of the obstacles and say that this program will have you more than prepared to climb every mountain, scale every wall and overcome anything of a physical nature that will challenge you on race. However when it comes to personal phobias and specific health limitations, I can’t claim to alleviate your fear of heights, or confined spaces or even cold water. Plus if you have a heart condition there are going to certain obstacles that you shouldn’t even attempt.
I can’t speak to the quality of the program you are currently following. What I do know is that most people are under-prepared for Tough Mudder. And this includes many people following popular fitness programs, WODs, Zumba-fests etc. By nature the emphasis of our business is designing programs to help our clients achieve better results in less time. And we have a program that has been tested numerous times by a variety of clientele who have all realized tremendous results by following it. Case in point…lots of fitness businesses claim to be able to help prepare you for Tough Mudder but none have a program they are willing to put out there for all to see and use. If they don’t have 100% faith in their product than why should you?
Unless you chose the right parents, probably not. But in the pool or hot tub after the event you will draw stares at the transformation that has taken place with your physique.
While this program is specifically designed for courses that are 20 km in length and have obstacles similar to what you tend to see on a Tough Mudder course you could use it to prepare for other events.
Tell you what…I’m 100% confident that this program will work for anyone. And if you give it your best and follow it through to the finish you will succeed. However at any point if you feel it doesn’t meet your expectations simply let us know and we’ll refund your purchase 100%. No questions asked.
