So you’re an OCR addict, but your spouse, significant other or crush is not? Uh oh! How could you possibly get your crazy OCR training in and still have enough time to spend with bae? Better yet, how do you convince them to get on this crazy journey with you? Here are 3 fun ways to get your boo ready for battle without even knowing it!
I’ll admit that I don’t have the science behind it, but I’m pretty sure that along with making your significant other love you to death… consistently delivering massages will help increase your finger strength. This will work wonders for your intimate life and could help you conquer more Platinum Rigs, monkey bars, rope climbs, etc. Additionally, if your partner reciprocates you will also have someone to help massage out all of the beating you put on your muscles after a race or a hardcore OCR training session! This is a clear win-win folks!
2) BattleFrog Series and Spartan Race TV shows
The NBC series American Ninja Warrior took the world by storm and people of all different backgrounds and fitness levels are hooked! Hundreds of thousands of people have been motivated to train for a shot a ninja glory! The show has changed many lives! June 13th NBC is launching a team competition show that I hope will have a very similar impact on the world! BattleFrog Series is also doing it’s part with a very exciting relay format show with competitions at the collegiate and league (professional) levels. Imagine a 4x100 with 5 obstacles per leg! It’s going to be epic! Get your significant other hooked on one of these shows and getting them to train with you and out at their first OCR will be much easier!
3) Racecation (Race + Vacation!)
Have you always wanted to try out a race series that wasn’t in your area? Or maybe you want to take on one of the more well known/famous courses? Double down on your favorite things and propose a RACEcation. Plan out all of the logistics, tell him/her where you will be staying and then drop the bomb: I signed you up to race with me! They won’t be able to say no to the vacation and they’ll get hooked once they give in to showing up to the race! Warning: Racecations are like CRACK… Merging travel and OCR is one of the most rewarding experiences so make sure that you budget accordingly to keep up with this addiction!
What a better way to grow the sport than by creating more OCR couples! Who will then make OCR babies! Who will then change the world! It’s the perfect plan!
