We start the show with a quick update on Spartan’s potential purchase of Tough Mudder. It might happen, but the Tough Mudder co-founders are blocking the deal. If a deal doesn’t happen, Tough Mudder is being forced toward bankruptcy by vendors they failed to pay in 2019.
While Tough Mudder struggles to keep the lights on, Spartan continues to expand its fitness offerings. Yancy Culp has developed Spartan’s newest program debuting in 2020: DEKAFIT.
Yancy joins us to talk about what DEKAFIT is, what it is not, and how it is different from the CrossFit Games and Hyrox. One big difference: Anyone off the street can compete in DEKAFIT without having to learn new movements or new motions. Everyone knows how to throw something or push something. No one needs special training to learn how to run a lap on a track. Yancy is excited about removing that barrier to entry that might typically discourage the first-timer from competing.
