Spartan Up!

The guy behind the Spartan races wrote a book!

It got a great review from one of my heroes, Dean Karnazes (Ultramarathoner and New York Times bestselling author of Ultra Marathon Man): “If there’s anyone out there who has taken extreme to a new level, its Joe De Sena – in adventure racing, in business, and ultimately in the business of adventure. Spartan Up! is a must-read.”

Spartan Up! is more than an insider’s view of the world of obstacle racing –it’s a manual for the Spartan way of life, including:

■ 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.

■ Tossing your cookies: The Cookie Test can teach you how to overcome the need for immediate gratification and help you prosper in the long term.

■ 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.

I can’t wait to get my copy — order yours today!
