Tough Mudder Training Plan   

More than 20 percent of the people that enter a Tough Mudder won’t cross the finish line. To be successful, you’ll need the endurance of a distance runner, the functional strength of a CrossFit junkie, and a solid mental game. Our 12-week training plan, created by Jim Nix, coach to dozens of Tough Mudder competitors, and owner of Maryland-based Full Circle Fitness Training, will prepare you mentally and physically for the challenge.
