Mission & Information Statement
Yancy Camp provides Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) athletes from all levels of fitness with an effective and inexpensive way to team up with a top level athlete to get an insider’s view into their training program. Even if you never plan on participating in the sport of OCR, this is Fitness Training For Everyone. You never know, you might be inspired to come join us. You’ll have weekly updated online access to 3 of the same workouts being performed by the OCR athlete of your choice. All the athletes on the roster are trained by Yancy Culp, and though their race plans and goals are similar, differences occur in the areas of focus and key races. Our goal is not to provide you with an all-inclusive training plan, but to provide you the opportunity to team with one or more of our athletes and have a view inside their training program. If you choose to plug their workouts in to your training program, they are drafted in a way that allow for you to complete the workout using a pace that’s comfortable to you and/or weight resistance that’s also comfortable to you. You’ll quickly see how their workouts are designed to help prepare them for the upcoming obstacles in an OCR event. In addition, strategies for building an aerobic running base, the importance of having a strong aerobic base, and the importance of taking your time to build the base. You’ll also have the opportunity to see how your athlete’s training plan changes throughout the season as a certain high priority race approaches and we work with periodization to try and achieve a peak for the race.
The sport of OCR is a diverse sport that tests every aspect of fitness and well-rounded athletes excel in the sport. Yancy and the roster of athletes will help you improve your ability to master obstacles and improve running performance, then tie it all together as you enjoy the sport of OCR. From the shortest distances offered by every race circuit to the longest endurance races, and every distance in between, Yancy and the athletes have great experience with them all. Don’t worry about special equipment or location differences; if you have a basic gym membership, access to a 400m track or area to run where you can mark off distances, you’ll have everything you need, and for many of the workouts, these aren’t even needed.
Join today for this one-of-a-kind experience to team with some of the best male and female athletes in our sport. Yancy and your athlete will always be available for questions, to provide motivation, mental coaching, race strategy, and can’t wait to watch you succeed on race day. Check out our roster of athletes and choose your inspiration today!
I have been competing in the sport of OCR since 2011. I started off like many in the sport by signing up for the local Warrior Dash and was immediately hooked. I jumped in to the Spartan circuit and did everything backwards as two of my first five Spartan races were completing the 2012 Ultra Beast and the 2013 Death Race which lasted 72 hours. Since then, I’ve completed two more Ultra Beasts and many Sprints, Supers, & Beasts. I finished in the top 50 in the Spartan elite points standings for 2014 & 2015. I’ve won Joe Decker’s 12 hour “The Suck” twice, I had an epic time in Las Vegas earning a 50+ mile World’s Toughest Mudder Bid in 2014 & 2015. In my three BattleFrog races, I’ve place 2nd overall, two 1st place and one 2nd place in the Master’s Division. I have multiple podium finishes in various other OCR races. I’m a competitive Master’s Track and Field athlete who’s been competing in track, road, and trail racing since my high school and college days when I was a state of Texas medalist in the 1600m and went to the University of North Texas on a Track/Cross Country scholarship. I was also a Powerlifter and Football player in high school. I spent four year in the US Navy where I began to realize my true passion for fitness. After the Navy I played a year of Semi-Pro Football in the California based PFL. For the past 12 years my wife Amy and I have partnered in the ownership of sCULPture Nutrition & Fitness. I’ve been providing personal training, coaching fitness boot camps, programming for OCR athletes, coaching weekly OCR workouts/races, and providing sports performance training for the Cedar Park High School Athletic Program with a focus on Football and Track & Field athletes. In 2015 I launched YancyCamp.com where we provide online coaching with my OCR Program and the top level athletes I train in the sport, Strength & Conditioning with Coach Bennie Wylie and his Lean & Fit or Lean Mass Programs, and acceleration/speed/power training with Coach Chad Leath. I’m a Spartan SGX Coach, have been an ACE Certified Personal Trainer for 13 years, and I manage the BeetElite OCR Sponsored and Ambassador Athlete Program. My wife Amy is the Sports Performance Dietitian for the University of Texas Athletics Department and we have a nutrition private practice in Austin. We have two amazing kiddos – Lily & Scout. I’m 44 years young, and there isn’t a person walking the planet who loves life, fitness, and the sport of OCR more than I do, and I look forward to having you join our YancyCamp.com family.
