Training for a Tough Mudder?

Full Cirlce Training is forming a Tough Mudder team led by the famous Tough Mudder Andy Thom, who is more widely known as the “Mustache Man.”

Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12-mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. With the most innovative courses, half a million inspiring participants, and more than $3 million raised for the Wounded Warrior Project, Tough Mudder is the premier adventure challenge series in the world.

Thom is a 46-year-old Bethlehem, Pa., resident who has gained worldwide popularity for his Tough Mudder skills and his throwback Burt Reynolds mustache. Thom says he became interested in training for Tough Mudder races as a midlife crisis after turning 40. In an interview with Men’s Health magazine, Thom credited Full Circle Training and its owner, Obe Roundtree, for helping him prepare.

“There’s this guy I recently hooked up with. His name is Obe Roundtree,” Thom told the magazine. “This guy has the most innovative workouts known. It’s insane what he does. He really showed me the importance of core, and it’s not about how many curls you can do. It’s a whole body thing.”

Thom also helped editors of Maxim magazine train to take on the Tough Mudder challenge.
