Ipswich , United Kingdom
I’m Jack Carpenter, a fully qualified level 3 personal trainer and OCR athlete. I’ve been competing at an elite level in OCR, mostly Spartan races, over the last 5 years and in 2018 was offered a place on the Spartan Pro Team.
I believe that OCR and outdoor exercise, in general, is fantastic. OCR is fairly new to the UK, with participation growing every year and more people taking part in fun events, the sport is growing which is hugely exciting.
I am a fully qualified personal trainer with extra qualifications as a Triathlon and Spartan SGX and WOCR Federation OCR coach.
Before finding OCR, I was a keen triathlete, competing at a national level and coaching within my local club. After completing an Ironman UK in 2015, Tough Mudder was suggested to me as a challenge, which I loved.
Since 2016 I have found my feet within the sport, I’m currently a Spartan pro team member and focus my racing season around the UK series and global championship races within Spartan.
I find OCR a great sport to train for, it relates to our body physics and functional movements requiring endurance, stamina, speed power and technical movements.
I like to use a periodized plan working within a cycle towards your main races and goals, whether you’re looking to finish a challenge or hit that podium, my coaching plan will help you achieve your goals.
