The Grid is back on 28th August 2021, and as the official training partner of the event, Reflex returns with another training program to prepare you to complete the race.
The program runs over 12 weeks, starting from the 9th of June and working up to race day, led by Reflex‘s very own team of professional and dedicated coaches, complemented by The Grid Elite athletes forming part of our coaching team, including Zak Farrugia, Dzintra Grech, and Anna Aloisio, who will contribute immensely towards this program.
The program is suitable for participants of all levels, and is structured to gradually work on different elements of fitness in order to equip our athletes with the tools necessary to conquer The Grid. Sessions are diverse and will include a mix of strength workouts, including Flexvit band sessions, road running and trail running, obstacle technique, mobility, calisthenics, and body control, as well as recovery sessions powered by Theragun. We’ve also included a number of sessions at Field for first hand experience of clearing an assortment of obstacles. To complement your training, we have incorporated Myzone to our classes which is a system that tracks your heart rate, calories, and time spent exercising and converts it into MEPs – Myzone Effort Points, as rewards. This will create an exciting and competitive fitness community to keep you motivated and working towards your goals.
The programme will be held exclusively outdoors. Sessions will take place at the pitch at Reflex Fitness Point, around the Sliema area, including beach & swim sessions, and Field, as well as a number of location runs taking place around the island to include a mix of terrain and elevation, all while making it an enjoyable and unique experience. The program is also complemented with nutritional guidance and tips throughout the program from our in-house nutrition advisor Milos.
