He recently placed second in a 200km obstacle race in Brisbane and also participanted in season one of Australian Ninja Warrior.
He believes in setting a good example for his clients.
Jase says obstacle training provides a great full-body workout.
“The specific obstacle skills really take you back to our primal movements of climbing, crawling, carrying, pushing and pulling.”
Jase has clients from “all walks of life” at Geelong Boxing and Obstacle, including children, university students, tradies, professionals, parents and members in their sixties.
“We train clients for specific events like Tough Mudder, Spartan Race amd Miss Muddy and we’re excited about our Mini Ninja classes starting in term four.
“We cater for all fitness levels and our timetable offers a fantastic variety for everyone.”
Jase and the team at GBOT, focus on the fundamentals, with clients.
“Being aware of what your body can do, load management and sticking to a healthy, balanced lifestyle are important,” he advises.
