Cal Poly Spartan Training


It's been a minute since I last put up a post...so here I am! Well, it's week 10 and we are getting ready to sprint that last straightaway that will take us into summer 2011. I don't know about you, but I can't wait for some fun in the sun. Now, with that being said what are your plans for the summer? What's that I hear...you're going to workout?

Yes, I know we all want to relax, but that doesn't mean we are going to put exercise at the bottom of our to-do lists. It is still important to take care of your bodies and put in at least one hour of work for 5 out of the 7 days of the week. If you are sticking around P-Town and looking for some group training I encourage you to check out our very own Cal Poly Spartan Training. If you hang out at the Bronco Fitness Center at all you have probably heard about this, but if not, I am here to tell you all about it!

Spartan Training is group training at a whole other level. The intensity is increased to burn more fat, hence, getting better, faster, and more visible results.

Starts: June 13, 2011
Ends: September 16, 2011
Where: Sign Up at The Bronco Fitness Center
Who: Open to the public (members and non-members)
Price: $40/ Program
  • 3 Programs Total, Over 3 Months with each program getting progressively harder so don't miss a workout!

  • Monday 7:30 AM and 6:00 PM
    Tuesday 7:30 AM and 6:00 PM
    Wednesday 7:30 AM and 6:00 PM
    Thursday 7:30 AM and 6:00 PM
Spartan training will help:
  • Reduce body fat
  • Lose Weight
  • Increase speed
  • Increase strength
  • Increase agility
  • Increase mobility
  • Increase mental focus
Unfortunately we will only be taking 25 spots, so it is very limited. We will have prizes as well as a leader-board to help with the motivation. Prizes include: most improved, fastest sprinter (male + female), most body squats (male + female), and most push-ups (male + female).

My favorite part about this whole training is that you get to train with the environment...Spartans definitely did not have a bicep curl machine to develop those bad boys. You guys will be using a lot of tires, sand bags, medicine balls, and agility ladders. It's a good way to get outside and enjoy the beautiful socal weather (plus you get a great workout, that's hard to beat)! I urge all of you to come check us out, LADIES AND GENTS! We have some fabulous personal trainers who are going to be running it so don't miss out.

I wish you the best of luck with finals. Study, study, study. Oh yeah, and if you need a study break come into the Bronco Fitness Center and get a workout in. Remember exercise improves mental awareness...it is a proven fact! Over and out.

  1. Also some will see the fact that Aldon played on a limited basis as a reason why he shouldn't be in the Pro Bowl TRX Rip Trainers, as he had less responsibilities than other defensive ends. It is worth noting that this could hurt him in winning defensive rookie of the year TRX-Suspension-Trainers, as his competition, Von Miller, who even though registered three less sacks than Aldon, played a higher percentage of snaps.And all of this talk about defensive linemen reminds me of the season that Ray McDonald had Anchoring Solutions. Yes Ray McDonald only registered 5.5 sacks, but that's a lot for a 3-4 lineman. You have to remember that he's a 3-4 lineman, and in the 3-4, the linebackers get the sacks, not the lineman TRX Rip 60.
