img_9570It’s January 1st and you promised yourself that you would start the year off right exercising on the first day.   You’re still slightly dehydrated from last night’s party and already second guessing your decision to work out on January 1st.  If only there was someone motivating to help you power through this first day…someone like Coach Pain.  A group of supportive athletes would also help…like the #CTGFamily including the CTG Pro Team.  Still…you not sure exactly what to do and how to setup your training…if only you could talk to an expert like Yancy Culp and some of the best obstacle trainers in the world to figure things out today.

Well…you are in luck, because the Conquer The Gauntlet (CTG) Virtual Training event kicks off on New Year’s Day 2017!  Sign up now via the link here and you not only get access to all this great content but also tons of free swag (see below).  This is the best $20 you will spend on OCR all year long.  The 11 segment virtual training event kicks off live via Facebook at 10:00 CST on New Year’s Day.

You don’t want to miss this event, it is the first live virtual OCR training event and the perfect way to start off your 2017 OCR season.  (Plus, I may have some inside knowledge that they will offer up some pretty sweet New Years promo codes at the end.)

What kind of swag do you get for signing up?  CTG training shirt a free month to Yancy Camp, a preview of CTG’s book “Conquering The Gauntlet”, a free mason jar shaker cup from Too Fit supplements and a couple of more things that you won’t find out until the day of the event.
