Hunter McIntyre

Hunter McIntyre, commonly known in the Obstacle Course Racing world as “The Sheriff”, has been one of the driving forces of the sport of obstacle racing. Born on the East coast, he grew up always chasing the challenges around his neighborhood, from climbing trees to racing cross-country. After college he fell in love with the fitness world, and particularly obsessed over powerlifting and spin classes.

During these fitness ventures, he eventually sought out opportunities to challenge himself outside of the gym. Starting out with local 5ks and half marathons, he quickly stumbled upon his first Spartan race during 2011 in his hometown of Malibu.  Quickly hooked on the new and growing sport of Spartan racing, he went “all in”, committing himself to being a podium athlete.

As the years rolled on, he established himself as a top Reebok Spartan pro team athlete with a unique twist. Between spinning and competing in races around the world, Hunter’s life is packed full with sweat drenched inspirational stories and a ton of time in the trenches that has allowed him to lend a great deal of expertise to the Obstacle Dominator podcast and the Obstacle Dominator training plans.
