When it comes to winter training, there’s no such thing as a snow day for Mudders. While the justifications to NOT hit the gym are plentiful in the thick of winter, now is the time to start training if you expect to crush the course in 2016.
Don’t let your workouts flatline - get inspired, and beat winter workout boredom, with these tips that’ll get you off of the couch and back into training mode.
In 2016, we've taken everything to the next level: obstacle innovations, on course experiences, and teamwork.
We brought back the obstacles you love most and introduced new creations tested, and approved, by the most hardcore Mudders on the planet at World's Toughest Mudder 2015. We dare you to dig deep, remember your roots, throw caution to the wind, and take the plunge.
Every obstacle on a Tough Mudder course tests your physical strength, but if there’s one that pushes the boundaries of your mental grit to the max, it’s Arctic Enema. This is one beast that no amount of preparation, physical or mental, will leave you feeling prepared for, but there are a few things to keep in mind the next time you take the mind-numbing plunge into sub 40 degree waters.
Don’t freak out, it expends your natural body heat.
Stay calm. Think. And just keep moving forward.

This year we’re seeing more mudders sport smartwear than ever before – worn proudly on wrists as they make their pledge. When you’ve trained so hard it’s nice to be able to see that the work’s paid off and just how far you’ve come.
Take Team Sony for example, who’ve been using Smartwear devices for the last four months to help them train for our most recent event in Yorkshire. With celebrities including singer Vanessa White and writer and broadcaster Rick Edwards, Sony’s SmartWear has certainly come in handy.
