The Spartans of TXSG

Spartan Race Team TXSG

Team TXSG (David, Corey and Du) at the Spartan Race – May 20, 2017

One of the many employee benefits that Texas Systems Group offers is up to $100 reimbursement per month for a gym or fitness membership to help promote a healthy lifestyle.  Several of our team members have joined various gyms and fitness programs – such as Gold’s Gym, Camp Gladiator and Class Pass – to help relieve stress and encourage movement after sitting long hours behind a computer.  A few employees have run 5ks, half marathons, etc. individually, and as a group we’ve also participated in 5ks such as Race for the Cure and the Austin Trail of Lights Fun Run.

 

Definition of Spartan – noun  Spar·tan \ˈspär-tən\

– a native or inhabitant of ancient Sparta

– a person of great courage and self-discipline

 

This past weekend David, Corey and Du braved the rain and hail (AND a broken toe) to complete the Spartan Race in Burnet, Texas.   This grueling 8+ mile rugged course tests you both physically and mentally with obstacles such as the Atlas Carry, Hercules Hoist, Rope Climb and Barbed Wire Crawl.  With preparation and dedication, they completed the difficult course as a team.  Way to go, guys!  You truly are Spartans!
