What the Elites have to say

“It’s the ultimate obstacle course experience, free flowing and competitive. I didn’t place but I’ll be training and coming back new year fitter than ever!

– Janet Mason

“I thought I was fit. Turns out I’m not. Well I’m not as fit as the men and women that formed the Elite Squadron in 2018.

– Terry Holland

“This was the best experience of my life, I trained hard, I pushed all my limits both physically and mentally and I came out on top, honestly can’t believe it.”

– Ryan Mulligan
