David Magida has this thing about coming out of retirement to win Spartan Races. Then he goes back into retirement. Sort of. When he is not the face and voice of Spartan Race on TV or live-feed, he is back home in Washington, D. C., where he owns and operates Elevate Interval Fitness. Now that he podiumed his first race of the 2018 season, he may go back into hiding as he preps to open his third shop.
