Damir Okanovic – The Ledge at Pacific Health Club in Liverpool, NY

Here we have competitor Damir, age 29, Bosnia lives: Utica, NY.

Athletic background?  I trained martial arts since I was 12yrs old.  Played soccer and basketball throughout middle school and high school. Started getting into OCR 4 years ago and ever since I have been captured by the world of obstacle training.

How long obstacle course training?  2 years to be exact.

Why obstacle training?   Obstacle training gives me a chance to set a challenge and always strive for more.  Like the urge to always crave food.

Why compete?  Motivation?  I always wanted to be that guy that pushes myself to all limits of what my body can handle, and believe me, I’m surprised what human body is capable of with dedication and heart put into something you love.

Favorite obstacle?  Least favorite obstacle?  Double salmon ladder / balance beams.

Personal interests (movies, hobbies, music, books, charities, etc.)?  Fast and Furious Movies, I Love to Fix Cars, House Music (EDM) gives me that push every time I want to beat my own personal record.

Something interesting about you?  Currently building an outside training facility.

Motto or how you live your life?  I live my life by being inspired by others, it gives me a push to set my own goals. I also travel twice a month to a different state or country.

Piece of advice for obstacle course training?   Have fun, build core muscle, work on your upper body, balance is everything. I recently became vegan and never felt better, so watch what you eat and stay healthy.
