Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect from attending a SpartanX Leadership Forum?

SXLF is a one-day event where masters of industry meet to collaborate, connect, and learn
critical leadership skills. Participants will enjoy a VIP experience in a professional
sports stadium while testing their newly learned skills on signature Spartan obstacles.
Expect to leave with the confidence to make big changes in your corporate culture,
performances, and in life.

What is the story behind SXLF?

We’ve hosted thousands of races around the world, with participants ranging from professional
athletes and health enthusiasts to business executives, individuals just beginning their
fitness journey, and even children. After crossing the finish line, hundreds and hundreds of
executives reached out to ask us, “How do I get all my employees to experience this?”

We had already been interviewing some of the greatest minds in business on our Spartan UP
Podcast, including Richard Branson, Tim Ferris, and more, and we wanted to connect the great
people we were meeting on a daily basis with companies looking to instill the Spartan
mindset in their team. We started by hosting private, team building events on corporate
campuses, but we wanted to create something the masses could experience. We wanted to put
leading companies from around the world in the same room to connect and collaborate. That’s
when SpartanX Leadership Forums were born.

SXLF is a place where great thinkers, doers, leaders, and teams can come together to learn,
grow, and contribute to the betterment of their companies, households, and respective

What is included in the registration cost?

SXLF is an experience unlike any other team building, networking, or business retreat you’ve
ever been to. You will:

  • Gain VIP access and experience a private tour at an iconic national sports complex
  • Learn the Spartan Principles and how to execute them in your organization and life
  • Interact with industry leaders in your area
  • Collaborate with leading companies’ executive teams
  • Take home a toolkit to share with your community and organization
  • Enjoy healthy snacks and drinks over inspiring conversations with other attendees

What is the difference between this event and other summits/team building

It’s simple – we’re doing what has never been done before. Where else do team activities
include spears, arrows, and climbing walls?

What other team building events are hosted in an iconic sports stadium? SXLF is bringing the
Spartan mindset to the fast-paced business world, and we’re ready to make a significant
impact in corporate culture. We’ve already impacted over 5 million lives in 45 countries,
and we’re ready to help 5 million more.

How do I get my team in?

Are you ready to commit to making a change or just looking to get out of the office? Because
we only want game changers in the room, we cap every event at 300 people to ensure the
nature and mission remain in tact. Companies can bring up to 25 team members each and have
to be accepted by the SpartanX Council.
