Tom Burns

Our Indy Spartan SGX training program is lead by Spartan SGX Certified Coach, Tom Burns. Coach Burns became certified in January 2015. Coach Burns advance his training and completed the Spartan SGX Level 2 Coach program in June 2020.  We welcome you to review the information below. If you still have additional questions, feel welcome to reach out to Coach Burns at either or by call or text 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.
