The Mountain Strength Obstacle Prep program at Mountain Strength CrossFit is designed to help you conquer your next Obstacle Course race like a Spartan Sprint 5k or the Spartan Beast Half Marathon. Our OCR program creates an exhilarating and awesome group atmosphere of fitness, nutrition, and performance that optimizes individual performance in Spartan Races and other obstacle/mud run races (Tough Mudder, Warrior Dash, etc.) as well as in daily life. This OCR program utilizes a unique, independently developed strategy of strength, conditioning and endurance specifically for Obstacle Course racing.

The training is led by Spartan Coach Gary Lombardo.

He is also an accomplished triathlete and mountaineer, having completed Ironman triathlons, marathons, long-distance bike and swim races, as well as expeditions to the Himalaya, Andes, and Cascades.
