Here we are at the conclusion of 2019 and change is in the air. I can recall when Spartan Race first made a splash and inspired millions to get off the couch. Is it possible that from this movement a new challenge has spawned from this rave?
Enter Hyrox, coined as a functional fitness challenge with multiple challenges divided by eight 1K sprints. It seems perfectly suited for those who have wet their whistles on Obstacle Course Racing. A product from across the pond that is gaining legs here in the US.
For my last episode in 2019, I asked Elite Spartan Athlete Ryan Kent to be my featured guest to discuss Hyrox the new rage in the OCR community. Ryan, having won the the second event in the country is literally chipping away at the current world record. The Showdown in Chicago is the next event on the calendar promises to be an Epic battle between himself and Hunter McIntyre, winner of the the Miami event earlier this season.
