    Phil,
    There ARE free shirts! Typically, they are the Black (or grey) shirts that say "I'm training for a Spartan Race" on the back.

    Not to sound like a wimp but for a beginner Spartan, how tough is this level of a workout? I have recently begun training with the ultimate goal to run a Spartan Race and eventually a Trifecta. Having only started within the last few weeks, I don't know if I am jumping the gun to far by wanting to attend the Workout Tour

    Valen,
    Not to worry, while you'll certainly work to the extent of your abilities, all we'd ask from you is to do your best! All the exercises are scale-able to your ability level, as needed.

    Alright thanks for the encouragement. I registered but it doesn't take me to a completion page or anything. I checked the boxed and filled it all out and then it takes me to the top of the page with nothing needed to be changed and all my info still in the boxes. Just trying to make sure Im set and wont have complications when I get there.

    What if I have to leave a little early? Something has come up that will cut my workout short, but still want to catch as much of it as I can. Is this okay?

    Hey! I had a question on the guardian thing. I'm 17 and my 21 year old brother was going to come with me to the work out because my mother is unable to attend. Is that okay and should she still sign my waiver or my brother?

    Hi Ashley!
    Any adult (over 18) can sign the waiver for you. So, your brother can definitely take care of that!

    I seriously underestimated my forearm usage in the obstacle race. Great advice in this article for the Spartan. Wish I would have focused more on arms in training. http://www.beenbitten.com/top-4-training-tips-i-wish-i-knew-before-my-obstacle-race/

    I have decided I want to compete in a Spartan race! Since January I have been working out and building strength, but I have been wanting to start specifically training for the spartan race (which is different than lifting in the gym). I am excited, but I have not seen spartan training events in NY! Is there any way we can get a date to have a spartan workout here? If not, how do you suggest I begin training for the races? This would be my very first race, I am a beginner. I am giving myself 1 year to train. Any suggestions are welcomed!
