Ultimate OCR and Mikes Gym Camp Marbella team up for a fun-filled action packed OCR bootcamp!
Andrea Tjarnberg and Team Ultimate OCR came to Mikes Gym Camp Marbella last week to knuckle down to some serious pre/season OCR training on our newly extended 5 k obstacle course.
The Ultimate crew took to our course for some intense interval and strongman training as well as technique workshops for brushing up their lifting and obstacle techniques.
Set in La Cala hills, Mikes Gym is certainly not short of beautiful trail runs to choose from and the group got very well acquainted with our infamous ‘scramble hill’ route as well getting up close and personal with some heavy-ass wreak bags! The group also experienced a stunning mountain trail up to the Mijas mountains at sunset on an active recovery excursion to the Mijas village.
“Great place with awesome coaches! If you want to challenge yourself, visit this place! You won’t regret it!”
No training camp in Marbella would be complete without a beach workout and these guys worked hard on that beach booty with lots of sandy fun in the sun.
The training camp was wrapped up with a full, timed lap of the course followed by a well earned BBQ and after party brought to us by Adris Kitchen and the rest of Mikes Gym Family.
Not satisfied with their times, 4 of the remaining camp members went on to do another timed lap early the next day smashing the previous days times! I think its pretty fair to say the Ultimate OCR boys and girls earned their place on the Mikes Gym leader boards!
Johanna Eriksson reviewed Mikes Gym Camp Marbella — 5 star
“Awesome place to play and workout! The coaches really help you out and the surroundings are so beautiful. Don’t think about it, just go there!”
Nocco camp at Mike´s Gym Marbella!
We welcomed Team Nocco to Mike’s Gym this month as part of their campaign ‘Nocco Camp España’, where a bunch of lucky winners and Nocco ambassadors got to join Nocco Spain for their first camp at Mikes Gym Marbella.
Level and ability however, makes no difference here at Mikes Gym Camp Marbella, as we scale activities and workouts to suit. So as long as you are willing to put the work in, no matter your level, you will get on just fine here. Failure is an option, giving up is not, and Team Nocco came with exactly the right attitude to get the job done!
A last min camp booking at Mike’s Gym meant that unfortunately Mike and Gazza couldn’t make the World Finals this year, (someone has to run the gym whilst we are away racing!) So, it was Garth and Sorrel representing Team Mike’s Gym out there in Canada this time. But I am proud to report that TEAM MIKE’S GYM TOOK 13TH PLACE MIXED PRO DIVISION AT THE OCR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS!
The annual Mike’s Gym Summer Slaughter loomed large, a gruelling obstacle race with the choice of two distances, 7km or 14 km. This year, due to an expansion of the Mikes gym course the race would be 8km or 16km. …or so we thought. (more…)
