Announcing OCR and Ninja Training program at Bandit CrossFit

one of the toughest courses in OCR today.

Want to race your first obstacle race? How about master the rope climb, Tyrolean and/or traverse wall? Do you want to compete in the elite division or prepare for American Ninja Warrior? Or, maybe you just want to do something different for fitness? The coaches at Bandit CrossFit can help you achieve your goals!

Coach Janice placed second in the 2013 Spartan Texas Sprint in the elite female division.

We are excited to announce that each Tuesday and Thursday at 5:30 p.m., one of our elite Bandit coaches will be teaching athletes how to train and prepare for any obstacle course race. Coaches Janice, Sam, and Emily all have successful obstacle racing careers and have raced amongst the best in the country and on the toughest courses. Coach Janice and Sam are also American Ninja Warriors, and Coach Janice is a contributing author in the latest OCR training book: Down and Dirty: The Essential Training Guide for Obstacle Races and Mud Runs. The trio have used their combined experience to develop an obstacle race training program complete with not only training and physical preparation, but nutrition and gear guidance along with many other tips and resources to help anyone achieve their goals of successfully completing an OCR, or even competing at a higher, elite level in OCR and American Ninja Warrior.

Our first class will be on Tuesday, August 5, at 5:30 p.m. at Bandit CrossFit. Classes will be held outdoors in the elements. Bandit OCR Ninjas will be running and crawling, flipping tires, throwing spears, climbing ropes, carrying sandbags, dragging concrete blocks, working the traverse wall, monkey bars, peg board and doing plenty of everyone’s favorite: burpees! We are getting new obstacles as fast as we can get our hands on them as we have recruited the talents of local American Ninja Warrior enthusiast and hopeful, Doyle Moran, to help us develop an American Ninja Warrior training course. Classes will meet every Tuesday and Thursday at 5:30 p.m. and will also be assigned homework. Participants are also welcome to come to Bandit CrossFit for our free Saturday CrossFit workouts.

Bandit CrossFit membership is not required to participate in this course. The cost is $85 monthly, and the first class is free. For questions, please contact Coach Janice by email: or by phone: 228-224-1515. You may also meet Coaches Sam, Janice and Emily at the Spartan 300 Workout tour this Saturday at Jones Park beach, in Gulfport.

Bandit CrossFit coaches supported and trained more than 30 people to finish the 2013 Mississippi Spartan Race. And we plan to do the same!
