Rock and Karma founders Raul and Karen have run over 100 obstacle course races between them, and they wanted to break into a branch of the industry that not many touch on. These races have are more than just a physical test of body and mind, they have evolved into a widely accepted social phenomenon. Unfortunately a lot of people shy away from them, thinking that it just demands more physical toughness than they have. Our mission is to challenge that assumption.
In 2017 Raul and Karen decided to start training small groups in one of the most widely known races (Spartans) to help people break those mental barriers and challenge their physical limits. During the training they touch on endurance, strength, and strategic training – both in the gym and out in the elements. This approach creates a very different and invigorating workout that can’t be experience in a traditional gym. Not only is this a great physical workout, but our sessions instill a strong team mentality – we live by the motto “No One Gets Left Behind.” Whether it is a member of our team or a competitor we’re facing, if we see someone struggling it is our first instinct to go and help them successfully complete that obstacle. We take pride in the fact that ALL of our teammates live by these words!
Today we have more than 200 members on our team living in New York, Canada and Japan! We are recognized nationwide as we travel to different venues and new races, and even on social media where we work hard to help and encourage others.
