AROO, Spartans! Are you preparing to dominate the Malaysia Spartan race this October?

Some 50 aspiring Malaysian Spartans had a free community workout hosted by the awesome trainers at Fuel Atheletics, to prep their skills and get ready for the next race.

Heard about the ‘burpee’ but no idea how to do it? Coach Faizal and his crew demonstrated the correct way to do it, and graciously gave us 25 times to perfect it. How ‘generous’.

I’d never done so many burpees in my entire life!

Coach Faizal and his crew then set us up for a taste of burpees, lunges, bear crawls, commando crawls and more burpees. Aspiring spartans ranged from ladies to gentleman, the not so fit, the gym addicts and everyone else in between. We were put to the grind in 3 workouts after a 1km run for a warm up.

Amazingly, no matter how much their muscles were screaming in pain, and how tired they were, no spartan gave up! That is indeed the spirit of the Spartan!
