30 Strong FX Team Smash Tough Mudder North West

Tough Mudder North West, Fx Fitness Experience, Personal TrainingA team of 30  from  FX Fitness Experience in Burnley took on the toughest, muddiest obstacle course challenge of their lives at the North West  Tough Mudder event in Cheshire on 15 September 2015.

‘Team FX’, from the Fitness Experience Personal training centre, Burnley put a team of 30 men and women from age 22 to 59 through the challenging endurance course . A family owned business meant that Mum- Sue Kennedy and 2 her sons Jamie and Josh (all Personal Trainers at the centre) undertook the course together with  25 clients and staff who train at the Personal Training centre.

Tough Mudder is a hardcore 12 mile obstacle and mud run event designed by British Special Forces to challenge the toughest of the tough. Electric shocks, icy water and endless filth – Tough Mudder is the endurance test that throws everything at its competitors. By the end of 2014 two million men and women aged 18 and over will have entered a Tough Mudder event.  It even requires entrants to sign a death waiver!FX Tough Mudder North West

For most of us running 12 miles is challenge enough. A Tough Mudder course covers 12 miles of relentlessly muddy, hilly terrain. It hurls  up to 20 sadistic roadblocks in your way from Electroshock Therapy -a curtain of live wires that emit 10,000 volts of electricity to ‘The Arctic Enema’ where participants plunge into a dumpster filled with ice water. You have to dive down to pass under a plank that crosses the tank to  emerge on the other side. At the ‘Funky Monkey’ you will find a long run of butter- and mud-greased monkey bars at various inclines. The course is so difficult (‘Probably the toughest event on the planet,’ the Tough Mudder branding shouts), you enter as part of a team. Team support is vital and Team FX demonstrated a collaborative spirit and grit and determination to get them through the course, which took about 4 hours to complete.

‘It was an amazing day with fantastic Team Spirit  with a team of mixed ability and ages who all overcame personal challenges and barriers  on the day. I am amazingly proud of every single one of them and they are deservedly proud of themselves too – what we’ve achieved today was just awesome and it makes our jobs as Personal Trainers so worthwhile to see clients achieve the impossible. Well done everyone .” Said Jamie Kennedy , owner of Fitness Experience
