Our Story

We’ve love every minute of our journey

In the begining

Mission Peak Spartans started by holding it's Saturday morning classes at Old Mission Park. Using kettle bells, dumb bells, bands, medicine balls and a pull up bar.  We were able to build up the strength and conditioning of our members.  However, we lacked the ability to face and master obstacles. 

....and now

Partnered with Irvington High School and Spartan Education program, we have a offering like no other in the bay area.  We are able to set up our obstacle course outside and train in a real race environment simulating the conditions racers are put through in an OCR.  We give our members the ability to face their fears and develop their skills to conquer obstacles the race course and ultimately build resilience and grit to overcome life's obstacles.

"How can a man die better, than facing fearful odds"

Monica


"I have learned so much from this training, not just about the physical obstacles but also about my mental strength. I walked up to the first session scared and absolutely positive I couldn't do anything physical. This group has taught me that not only can I accomplish these physical obstacles, but also that they will catch me when I falter. Now I can walk up to an obstacle, whether on the course or in real life, and mentally know that I can do handle them."

Pauline


"I have been attending Spartan training for a couple months now. My daughter talked me into in and I have found great enjoyment in it. My daughter and I do the training together and she pushes me to do more. Because of this, I have had a first in my life. People have been telling how good it look and asking if I work out. That never happened together. I too have noticed I am much more tone ad I have more energy to tackle my day. Although I haven't yet competed in a race, my goal is to be as healthy as possible. I want to be able to still move around when I'm 80."

Susan


"I was tired of the big gym classes – and so glad I found Ty’s classes. The workouts are challenging but still fun. The exercises and obstacles are different everytime so I’m learning something new every class and I’m never bored. I like that free weights are also used during the class. I can still also work at my own pace but thanks to Nicol I’m reminded to keep on moving. And best of all, I’m glad for the personal attention when it comes to maintaining good form. I’ve definitely gotten stronger and improved my endurance since coming to Ty’s classes."

Mike


Since finding a home with Mission Peak Spartans I have been able to increase my strength and skills to continue to participate in OCR races at the ripe old age of 55. With Ty’s positive and non-intimidating approach to training I continue to grow and learn about health and safe training to help me improve my skills. Saturdays Obstacle training classes have helped me to climb the 18-foot rope and get over the wall and push myself harder which is a great achievement. Great people great training love it.

The pull up bars were the center of attraction when we first started in Old Mission Park
