Indy Spartan SGX

Our Indy Spartan SGX training program is managed by Spartan SGX Certified Coach, Tom Burns.  Coach Burns became certified in January 2015.  The training program generally runs from between February or March through September or October.  For details, reach out to Coach Burns at either or by phone at 317-503-2297.

Training sessions will vary across multiple objectives.  These may include cardio endurance, muscle endurance, muscle strength, power, mobility, and more.  Coach Burns discusses two rules.  1)  Show Up, and 2) Make Effort.  These simple two rules may sound easy, but many people may struggle.  You follow these rules, and we will take care of the rest.  Coach Burns also encourages participants not to become too overwhelmed with the big picture goals.  Rather, be aware of your goals, and then break things down and focus on your Daily Decisions, one at a time.

Basic Elements of Physical Fitness:

Here are some general terms you should become familiar with. To have a true balance of physical health, each element should be coordinated into a fitness plan. 

  1. Cardiorespiratory endurance – the ability of the heart, lungs, and circulatory system to supply oxygen and nutrients to the working muscles;
  2. Muscle strength – the maximal amount of force that can be produced by a muscle or muscle group;
  3. Muscle endurance – the ability of a muscle or muscle group to maintain submaximal force or repeated contractions over a period of time;
  4. Flexibility – the ability to move a joint through its full range of motion.

Expanded elements of physical fitness would include focuses on speed, anaerobic power, coordination, agility, and reaction time.
