About Us

Brothers and fellow PT's Gareth & Mikey based in Cardiff were bored back in 2014! Bored of following the sheep in the gym doing the same routines week in week out.

They experimented training outdoors using none of the usual equipment you would find in the gym. Tyres, kegs, ropes, sandbags etc. Soon they came up with a method of training that produced amazing results in fitness, body image and weight loss.

They also had a passion for Obstacle Racing and realised that this 'functional' training was a perfect fit for Racing.

They were getting such great results from this method of training that it made sense to share it with other people to see if they get the same results. And so was born OBSTAFIT!

The Team

Gareth Partridge

I'm a proud dad of one with an addiction to all things fitness. One of my proudest moments in life was achieving my black belt in kickboxing, plus winning the WKFB Welsh Full Contact Light Heavyweight Kickboxing title.

In 2010 I did my first OCR event, Tough Guy. Everyone told me it was going to be cold, that I may not make it to the end! However I know I had the correct mindset to keep going and get me to the end, nothing could be more challenging than stepping into the ring! Since then i've become an OCR addict. Me and Mikey have entered lots of races (Tough Mudder, Dirty Dozen Races, MH Survival, Rat Race Dirty weekend to name a few!)

I have learnt to use my experience in training for full contact fights to train for Obstacle Races. To me when it comes to training the two sports are no different. Both require courage, endurance, strength, power, agility and technique.

Let me help you prepare for your next Obstacle Race. TRAIN HARD FIGHT RACE EASY!

  • Level 3 Personal Trainer
  • Qualified Kettlebells Instructor (CPD)

  • Welsh Amateur Full Contact Kickboxing Champion

Mikey Partridge

During my sporting career as an international sprint cyclist I raced all over the world and worked with many national and international coaches

They taught me the highest standard of training and showed how to get the most out of my performance leading to a British Sprint Silver Medal. I was lucky enough to race with the likes of Geraint Thomas and Chris Hoy

During this time I studied sport science to gain further scientific knowledge on health and fitness and how to put this into practice.

I caught the OCR bug after completing the freezing winter Tough Guy back in 2010. Since then I have entered a number of different OCR events throughout the UK.

We soon realised that training resources for such events are few and far between.

With our sporting background and experience myself and Gareth decided that we could fill the training gap ourselves by starting our own OCR training business, so here we are with Obstafit!
