Our Mission

We make people realize they can acheive more then they think they can do.

Our goal is to positvily impact 1 million lives by 2024.

To be the leading achievement center in the world.


Our founder Mylo had a New Years Resolution to impact 5 lives in a positive way. He loved how accomplished you felt after doing an obstacle course race. So he put an add on Craigslist to train 5 people for free and they had to give a reason why they deserved it above everyone else. He received 30+ responses to the add. It was hard but he chose 5 people. He made them sign a contract. If they missed 1 day of training they owed them $60 for each day missed. If they quit early they owed him $60 for each day he trained them. But if they showed up 3 times a week and completed the 3 month journey and did the obstacle course at the end it was all free. All 5 people were able to complete every obstacle and ran the entire 3 mile race. At the finish line they said they would pay him whatever he wanted to make them feel that way again. And MOF was born.
