about this item
“A must-read for anyone looking to take his performance to the next level, be it in athletics or in life.” — Dean Karnazes, author ofUltramarathon Man “Spartan Up! will guide you to train your body and mind for the arduous Spartan Race — while also giving you very practical insights to perform at your peak in all areas of your life.” — Mark Divine, author ofThe Way of the SEALWhat do marathoners do when 26.2 miles just isn’t enough anymore? They try obstacle racing, combining the endurance challenges of a marathon with the mind-and-body-bending rigors of overcoming obstacles along the way. At the heart of this phenomenon is Joe De Sena, driving force behind the Spartan Race. De Sena overcame his own obstacles — working his way from Queens to Wall Street to legendary extreme athlete — by adhering to a simple philosophy: commit to a goal, put in the work, and get it done. From that philosophy, as played out now for millions across trails, through mud, and up mountainsides, the Spartan Race was born.
Filled with unforgettable stories of Spartan racers as well as hard-won truths learned along the course,Spartan Up! will help anyone reach their full potential in whatever they set out to do.
