Ready for a challenge?  The Forteza Challenge Workouts are designed to test both your fitness level and mental toughness via fun, but demanding workouts.

There are plenty of these sorts of workouts online, but as with everything else at Forteza, we’re going to try and make it a little different.  Challenge workouts will combine training themes, combined with our love of old-school training methods and martial arts to make you sweat but crack a smile between all of the grimacing.  Keep watching this space, as the workouts will sometimes include photos, videos or even contests, to see who is out there watching – and training!

The first Challenge Workout is the Spartan 1500.  This is the workout we did last weekend with our Spartan Race team, and its a tough one!  Give yourself only 60 minutes and complete as many of the exercises as possible.  If you don’t quite finish it, keep training, and give it another shot in a couple weeks.
