We help serious OCR athletes gain the fitness, technique, and timing they need to get through obstacles more efficiently. You’ll love coming to our classes to learn all the tips and tricks, and then just kill those OCR races.
For weekend warriors, we help you get more conditioned, more comfortable, and more confident on obstacles, and then you can go at your own pace out there running your race.
People are always surprised about how much cardio they are doing in our classes. The workout of the day is a serious aerobic workout.
The supportive and fun vibe of the ULTIFIT community is a secret element to training consistency and results. Join us for weekly OCR club (coming to more gyms this year), our Facebook group, and local group OCR races.

I am in the best physical shape of my life. Since doing ULTIFIT, I have added 10-15% on my ability in races.
I like to see and be inspired by the people who have the competition-level ability. They can do it much better than I can, but with time I feel like I can get on their level.
I started doing tough mudders, and I know for a fact that I was able to do that and not really struggle because of ULTIFIT.
During the race I was thinking, this is awesome and I want to train really hard for next year. I used to think that I could never do that. Now, I know that it takes technique and timing, and it feels less out of my reach.

Initial Goal: Not Get Hurt
The mantra I use is training and don't get injured. What I love about ULTIFIT is that it can be modified to whatever level you are at. My coach is so good at encouraging you and also spotting when you are not doing the exercises correctly, which could lead to injury and not being as effective as it should.
Results: Improved Balance, Reduced Shoulder Pain
My balance when I first got there was awful. I am 60 and balance is so important for people getting older. When weight lifting you don't cover those smaller muscles, but when you work at the ninja gym, those bigger muscles are worked. Also, I used to have shoulder pain in my left shoulder. I can sleep on my left side now because of working the rings, working the A-frame bars, working the cargo net, working the climbing wall, all these things.
Obstacle Progress: Increased ability in races
I was in very, very good shape when I did my first race at 59 years old because I had done Spartan races for a few years. Since doing ULTIFIT, I have added 10-15% on my ability in races, and I have increased my pull-ups and my grip strength, and also my enjoyment of working out.
Recently, I was in an obstacle course race on a ski hill in New Jersey, and I finished third in my age category. Carrying a sandbag up a ski hill was the hardest thing I've ever done. I am in the best physical shape of my life.
Why He Keeps Coming Back: Positive community, effectiveness
I was diligent to work out by myself but working in a group is so much more inspiring. We encourage each other so much. It is a rare thing to experience such a positive workout with people and it is so effective in developing better core strength, upper body, and other things I didn't know were so important for my races but also for everyday life. You get the individualized attention that makes me work harder.

Initial Goal: Pull Up
I have always wanted to be able to do a pull-up. Even when I was on the college track team, I couldn’t do one. I had been working on it for the last few years without seeing any real progress. I joined the gym in November 2020 and by June 2021 I did my first pull up.
Obstacle Progress: Enhanced success in OCR races
One of the things the classes help with is endurance. Having your heart rate up running while doing obstacles is the environment of the class itself. You are tired and running the obstacles, which is different than just practicing them in a gym.
During the first race, I was thinking, this is awesome and I want to train really hard for next year. It will be fun to do it again and continue to see how I can improve. Before I used to think that I could never do that. Now, I know exactly how hard it is but I think I can learn to do it. I understand it takes technique and timing, and it feels less out of my reach.
Why She Keeps Coming Back: Variety, workout structure, personal attention
What keeps me coming back is definitely the variety and the community and the fact that it's a short workout but it's really intense, which is the way I like it. You get to know people, their strengths and weaknesses, and that makes you want to cheer them on when they hit a wall and they're excited for you when you hit a goal.
The small size is really nice too. It feels like one-on-one personal training without the awkwardness of being one on one. You get a lot of individual attention.

Initial Goal: Build strength, lose weight, feel more comfortable in his body
I see other people in the gym and I want to be on their level. My body and coordination was not there, but mentally I really wanted to be. This felt like a fun, good routine to get into to compete with myself.
Obstacle Progress: Mastering the foundational skill of swinging
Getting the upper body strength to be able to traverse an obstacle, swing from a bar or rings, was the first goal that I have hit now. The skill I am close to being able to do next is to lache — move from one bar to another.
I can see the progress I make because I can do more than I've ever been able to do before. I was always self-conscious and would wear jackets even in 80-degree weather to cover myself up. I feel a lot more confident in myself to put myself more out there because there are places in my body that I am proud of.
Why He Keeps Coming Back: Inspiration, supportive group, gym environment
It's a place to feel comfortable, let loose and be yourself. A supportive group of people that you enjoy being around is really important to have when you go on a fitness journey.
I like to see and be inspired by the people who have competition-level ability. We're at the same gym. We're doing the same thing. They can do it much better than I can, but with time I feel like I can get on their level.
