BOKS x Spartan: Brand New High School Curriculum!
Ready? Set. Go! It’s time to get high schoolers off their screens and into motion. BOKS has partnered with Spartan, the world’s largest obstacle race and endurance brand, to bring you a brand-new curriculum exclusively designed for high school students.
Spartan hosts more than 250 obstacle events across more than 40 countries on six continents annually. More than five million participants have finished Spartan events, creating a fitness and wellness lifestyle that extends far beyond the races – making them the perfect partner to take BOKS into high schools.
“Spartan is excited and proud to collaborate with BOKS on this new fitness initiative for America’s youth,” said Joe De Sena, Spartan founder and CEO. “We are all about inspiring kids to get out, be active, have fun and get fit. It’s never too early to set new goals, which is more important than ever since obesity rates have tripled for U.S. kids in the past three decades. This curriculum will empower students to step outside of their comfort zones and learn how to overcome obstacles both on and off the course.”
A typical session of our new curriculum includes a fitness skill of the week that supports the completion of obstacles found in a Spartan race (e.g. crawling, throwing, jumping); a virtue or behavior typical of a Spartan racer (e.g. perseverance); a warm-up; a skill or running related activity; a skill related game; and a cool-down mindfulness exercise to end each session.
We all know it feels great to see your hard work pay off. High school students that complete BOKS, will get that opportunity to do just that by competing in a Spartan race for free. This experience alone will test their physical fitness and grow their mental toughness in ways they may not have known was possible – don’t believe us?

The BOKS High School Curriculum x Spartan is 100% free and is available through the BOKS Trainer HUB. Students that participate in the program will be eligible for free registration in a local Spartan race. All they have to pay for is insurance to participate.
