A former NCAA Division 1 coach and power-lifting champion helms the boot camps at Edge Sports Fitness, which get players into game shape by running them through a gamut of strength and speed training drills in a football-field-inspired indoor facility lined with artificial turf. Professional coaches lead a schedule of workshops designed to decrease 40-yard-dash times, increase vertical lift, and improve the technique of fox trot end-zone dances. Trainees practice fast-paced footwork and running drills while strengthening the legs by leaping with purpose throughout a series of plyometric exercises. Training regimens focus on improving skill sets in athletic competition, with obstacle courses and circuit training specifically designed to build the muscles needed most during games. Post-workout stretching and nutritional guidance, meanwhile, help prevent injuries and french fry grease stains on jerseys.

At Conquer the Gauntlet, twenty-five obstacles are whetstones against which racers sharpen their resolve. The 4-mile course will challenge their speed, power, endurance, and resolve as the runners hurl themselves over walls, scale inclines with ropes, and clamber over a sea of cargo nets. Should entrants lose their footing or take an errant step, a wet and watery bath of mud waits beneath. The race starts early in the morning, and each wave of approximately 100 runners pounds across the ground with electronic chips tracking their times. While there are awards for winners in each age category, individual heats are not age specific, allowing participants the chance to compete on equal footing with hardened marathon veterans and uppity toddlers with steel spikes on their rattles.
