Featuring a gruelling schedule, tactical challenges and the element of surprise, the second season of Spartan Games is billed as ‘the most extreme fitness competition on reality television.’
The new five-episode series season premieres on March 24, 2022, on Outside TV, SpartanTV, and Spartan YouTube.
Developed by Spartan and presented by US Air Force Special Warfare, Spartan Games 2.0 pits 16 athletes against each other across a diverse list of athletic disciplines — from obstacle course racing to swimming to functional fitness and more.
This season takes place at Big Bear Lake, California, with the five episodes released weekly at 20:00 EST on Thursdays. The athletes will be vying for a share of US$50,000 and the title of Spartan Games Champion.
New this year are two special challenges created in partnership with the United States Air Force, with airmen leading mission briefings and offering guidance on challenges outside the realm of typical Spartan competitions.
“Spartan is all about pushing people to get out of their comfort zones, and Spartan Games 2.0 kicks that up a notch for some of the fittest athletes on the planet,” said Joe De Sena, founder and CEO of Spartan.
“This year’s new challenges tested our competitors mentally and physically. They’ve never had to do anything like this – it will change the way we think of ‘warriors.’”
Season two athletes range from defending Spartan Games winners and reigning Spartan world champions, Ryan Atkins and Lindsay Webster, to a Boston-area chiropractor and a woman who has overcome multiple health issues to become a fitness coach for others with physical challenges.
