As many of you know, Cross Fit is the fitness craze that is sweeping through the Hawaiian Islands. Luxury communities such as Kohanaiki have incorporated a Cross Fit training course into the community plan. As a member of Kona Cross Fit, I enjoy incorporating unconventional fitness activities into my routine.
Alternative Fitness Routine, Reebok Spartan Race – Hawaii
Recently, I received an email from the Spartan Race Inc. Event Coordinator who shared with me that the Reebok Spartan Race is returning to Oahu’s Kualoa Ranch, August 16th and 17th, 2014. A combination of Cross Fit meets Survivor fitness adventure, I have always heard about it, but now is my chance to try it! Availability of events of this caliber can be a bit limited here on the Big Island, so I am always keeping an ear out for upcoming events that are taking place on the neighbor islands.
What is it?
But what exactly is a Spartan Race Trifecta Weekend? Webster’s Dictionary defines trifecta as a race in which bets are made. A word that is appropriate for those of us who are betting on ourselves and each other as to whether or not we have what it takes to complete this impressive obstacle course.
If you are not a triathlete, don’t worry. The Reebok Spartan course offers different distances for different levels and styles of racing. Today, 3.5 million people across the globe are following the Spartan Race like a “tribal phenomenon”.

According to their website, “Spartan Sprints are muddy 3+ Miles / 15+ Obstacles course races. The challenging sprint races are a great way to get off your couch and start living. Beginners to hardcore warriors and marathon runners alike come out to test themselves on the insane obstacles!
This 5k race is comprised of mud runs, obstacles, trail racing, physical challenges, and mental challenges all in a 3+ mile race. 99.9% of all people who try this event will finish and 100% will have their thirst for mud fully satisfied! Top 3 Males and top 3 Females at each Spartan Sprint qualify for a free entry into a Super Spartan of his or her choice.”
A Global Fitness Movement for People of All Ages
A million plus people have changed their lives by joining the Spartan movement. The beauty of the Spartan Race concept is that people of all fitness levels, physical challenges, and ages are invited to participate in this two day festival.
