Why Should I Trust Fierce Gear OCR For My Training & Race Nutrition?
The 3 Things That Basically Make Fierce Gear OCR Awesome:
Top Quality Products & Apparel: We don't cut corners for a profit, and we'll never try to sell you something that we think isn't right for you. We know you because we are you: this company was founded by athletes, for athletes. We know what works and what doesn't because we've seen it with our own eyes, and we know how it feels to be ripped off by flashy companies who sell a product that doesn't hold up to its promise. Scroll down to see more info about our founder Katie Purcell and to learn more about why quality is such an important part of the FG culture.
Solid Info Via Our Blog: We take pride in the quality of the content we provide to you: our aim is to make our blog choc-full of juicy info you find helpful, relevant, and ACTIONABLE...meaning when you walk away from it you actually have an idea of what your next step(s) should be. Topics include training/race prep, advice for how to approach a first race all the way through an ultra endurance event, nutrition tips, and lifestyle articles.
Killer Community Vibe: To put it simply, our tribe is LEGIT. Our #FierceFam has a killer grit-never-quit attitude that attracts new customers, and keeps the old ones coming back for more. They know that it's not just about the great info available on the site or the sweet flame logo on the clothing (although that's pretty awesome too): Fierce Gear OCR stands for something real, and raw, and authentic. They come from all over the U.S. (and the world...shoutout to our ambassador from Scotland!) and while they are at all different levels of fitness, with different backgrounds and different OCR goals, we're one big FIERCELY loyal fam. We always encourage each other to "Find YOUR Podium," meaning to chase your goals whatever they may be, and to know that we've got your back while you're doing it. So join us!
The Brains Behind The Operation: Meet The Fierce Gear OCR Founder
“Fierce Gear” is the brainchild of elite obstacle course racer Katie Purcell (a.k.a. Pretty Fierce Spartan).
OCR Street Cred:
Not a traditional athlete: Like many OCR athletes, Katie was not always an athlete: she knows what it means to take your life back with both hands and live it.
Networking all through the industry: Racing since 2013, Katie has made contacts and friends all across the OCR world. She knows the pain points of the industry: what OCR participants want and need.
Race results & experience: In her OCR career Katie has completed over 50 events and even been on the podium a few times (including at Spartan Race and the Bermuda Triple Challenge). She recently switched her focus to endurance events and has completed 3 Spartan Race Ultra Beasts with multiple Top 10 finishes. She's done it all, and wants to help you crush your fitness/OCR goals.
USAOCR: Katie is the Athlete Representative on the Executive Board of the USAOCR: the United States national governing body for obstacle course racing.
