How to Train a Spartan


Meet Hiro Otani! You might have seen me and founder of #Mamavation Leah tweeting about her training with Billy Banks. Hiro has been in some of his Tae Bo training videos. She has amazing strength like I've never seen before. To train with her is truly inspiring because of what she has trained her body to do.
Her class is always packed especially now that school is back in session. We are in a room with 50+ people wanting to train with her every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 8:30am. She has been called a "beast", "a legend" and anyone that works with her has a lot of respect for her. One of my favorite things to do is tweet her quotes after class. She's got a lot of them, "no breakfast, no class!" She can tell when you haven't eaten because you can't think quickly. Tae Bo is fast moving with Hiro! It's great training for the Spartan Race because it trains you to be agile, focus on breathing and your core. You must pick your body parts up, pivot your feet, and stay in tune with your body so you don't injure yourself. Keep count! Keep count! Keep count! If you don't she will make the whole class do another set of reps. She comes around and makes sure you are doing the moves right. What ever you do don't lose count! lol

She spends the last 15 minutes of class making you do things like push ups, planks, crunches, bicycle crunches, leg lifts, side leg lifts, side leg kicks, more crunches, more push ups and she can do these things without breaking a sweat. She is famous for her one handed push ups! If you ever get the chance to see her do these things you will be in awe. She's amazing and that my friends is why she is part of my training crew! I've got only 33 more days to train.

Until next time on....How to Train a Spartan.
