Julianne Hough is known for her strength and agility, but most are familiar with her exhibiting these traits on the Dancing With the Stars ballroom floor. Hough proved her physical feats lie in other areas last week when she completed the Spartan Beast challenge. The 13- mile obstacle course isn't for the faint of heart, and even though Julianne Hough says there were areas in which she could have done better, just finishing the challenge is a major accomplishment.

Hough’s sister and brother-in-law put their team together, and since their last name is Wise, the team was called the Wise Asses.

“Team W.A. endured and overcame about 30 intense obstacles, which included crawling beneath barbed wire as we were being sprayed with hoses. It was beyond difficult to do! There were three upper body challenges. There was one I definitely couldn’t complete: a set of vertical monkey bars. When faced with an obstacle we couldn’t get through we had to drop and give officials 30 burpees. Thirty! It inspired me to step up my strength training game, so stay tuned for a post on that!” Julianne Hough writes on her personal website.

Julianne Hough shared a picture of her team via Instagram.

"I love physical challenges, but the Spartan Beast was SO MUCH more than just a really intense (and very messy) workout. You can see all our action shots and read about what the day was like for me over on juliannehough.com. (link in profile)," she captioned it.

She even shared a short video clip of her and her team in action.

Julianne Hough knows all about teamwork. She and brother Derek Hough have teamed up in the past as dance partners.

Recently engaged to Brooks Laich, it seems teamwork will forever be a part of Julianne Hough's life.

Did you think the DWTS judge had it in her to compete and complete the Spartan Beast challenge?
