This retreat is for all fitness levels, whether you have never done a Spartan race before or you are an avid Spartan participant - designed to push everyone to their limits and beyond. You will be familiarized with the Spartan pillars, and learn about what it takes to be a Spartan, how Stamina, Grit, Endurance and Courage are the keys to succeed in a Spartan race. We will focus on mental and physical, stamina, endurance and strength, and how to apply breath sequences that are an important feature to the race. The training will take place on an amazing multi-elevation nature trail that runs through the forest and along the river, with the sound of rushing water and the succulent fresh air. The adventure will nourish your body, mind and soul.
You will embrace wellness at REO's gorgeous nature adventure and yoga resort. Enjoy delicious meals, beverages, desserts, daily yoga, evening social hours, dark sky star gazing, nightly campfires & much more during our well-crafted 4-day retreat. Choose the option of an extra day, where you can combine some extra personal fitness training, book a whitewater rafting experience, or choose from a number of additional activities. Sleep to the sound of the river inside our beautiful glamping tents overlooking the jade-green Nahatlatch River.
