Spartan Up!

14 Mar

Spartan up

Spartan Up! is a book by Joseph De Sena. This book is set up to help you conquer the everyday obstacles that will undoubtedly come your way. It also tackles tough issues such as childhood obesity and poor nutrition.

Hundreds of companies have used Joe’s Spartan Up methods to build even more successful business operations, while thousands upon thousands of individuals have used the same principles to change their lives.

I, myself, have enjoyed the challenges offered by the Spartan Race. It pushed me to my limits and seemed to calm my nerves. I had recently accepted a promotion, and things were tough at work; however, none of that factored in during the race. I was so focused on completing the task, that those things faded into the background (which is where they belong). Instead of concerning myself with my job, I took my wife’s hand and together we proudly conquered obstacle after obstacle. Together, with other every day warriors, we went the distance and earned the medals that were placed around our necks.

Helping Hand

Spartan Race drives competitors to their very limit to learn what they are capable of and sets a new frame of reference; one th ey can draw upon in the face of life’s harshest challenges. Competitors climb ropes, crawl under barbed wire, and jump over fire, as well as a host of other boot-camp-like maneuvers. Everyday disappointments and setbacks seem small when you’ve been to the other side of hell and made it back as a victor.

  • Getting Spartan fit: Survival of the Fittest means training outside the gym for strength, endurance and flexibility for your entire body—and don’t forget those burpees!
  • Moving mountains: Whether metaphorical mountains or the ones on which Spartans race, what you think of as your limitations can actually be a mere starting point for transformation.
  • Finding the will to succeed: The first half of a race you run with your legs; the second half you run with your mind. Turn your pain into an outboard motor to drive you forward.

    That sounds like a lot of fun. I’m going to look for something similar in Idaho. 🙂
