Next, lets talk GORUCK.  GORUCK was founded by a former Green Beret, Jason McCarthy, following his time serving our country to bridge the military-civilian gap.  They started out building military grade gear in a market flooded with lesser quality products.  Later they added their GORUCK events, challenges based on special forces training.  The challenges offered vary from 4 hour ‘light’ (10lb-30lb) to a 24+ hour ‘heavy’ (20-30lb) designed push you both mentally and physically.

What does it mean to be a Firebase?

A ‘firebase’ by definition, is a ‘temporary military encampment to provide artillery fire support to infantry operating in areas beyond the normal range of fire support from their own base camps.’  In a nutshell, we are a providing support for the GORUCK community and all ‘ruckers’ in our rural area of Central Illinois.  As an official ‘GORUCK Firebase’, participants here at NLFS will get special discounts on GORUCK gear and events.  We will also be holding special workout programs to help prepare for these events.  Local challenges are held in Chicago, Springfield, and St. Louis.  Our goal is to build a larg group of ruckers in our area and eventually be able to bring an official event to the Peoria area.

No Limit Fitness Studio was selected by GORUCK to be a local Firebase for central Illinois ‘ruckers’ and to help build the community in our area.  We organize local rucks throughout the year to both build the local presence and in general, exhibit alternative fitness methods to get more people active. We held our inaugural Veterans Day Ruck on Nov 11th with a 4 mile hike down Peoria St in Washington, IL.

Ready to show you have No Limit?  Throw in a rucksack and take a mile hike before your daily workout.  Want more?  Keep on the rucksack during the workout!  Rucksacks are a great way to add more weight to push-ups, pull-ups, and squats.  You can even get creative and use them for swings and dead-lifts too!
