Training

Rugged Maniac is a ton of fun for people of all fitness levels, from couch potatoes to elite athletes, but make no mistake:  the 25+ world-class obstacles we cram into every 3-mile course are designed to challenge you just as much as delight you.  So if you find yourself on the potato end of the spectrum and want to crush The Warped Wall with no help, or complete The Ringer without falling in, you're going to have to train... hard.
