Twenty-six point two miles isn’t enough anymore. Obstacle course racing, which combines the endurance challenges of a marathon with the mind-bending rigors of overcoming obstacles along the way, is taking the world by storm. At the center of this phenomenon is Joe De Sena, the driving force behind the enormously popular Spartan Race. De Sena offers a simple philosophy: commit to a goal, put in the work, and get it done. From that philosophy, as played out first in his own life and now for millions across trails, through mud, and up mountainsides, Spartan Race was born. Now in Spartan Up! De Sena gives you a life strategy guide that takes you out of your comfort zone and into a combat zone. As he breaks down obstacles from his many races, detailing how each parallels real life experiences, you will learn how to:
- Conquer your greatest obstacle - your will
- Embrace your greatest friend - discipline
- Make limitations vanish and establish a new normal
- Achieve the ultimate: obstacle immunity
Other events breed sheep; Spartan Race breeds wolves.
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 life, business, relationships, indeed anything one sets out to do. It is the blueprint that takes you right past Go, to your finish line.

I made it just past the two hour mark in this book before I finally gave up, bored stiff. The author ambles between explaining that anyone who doesn't do what he does or doesn't want what he wants or doesn't think the way he thinks is wrong and has to change right away, and telling stories about great achievements, most of which are already boringly familiar, and usually are one-sided and oversimplified, not to mention spiced up with a lot of the author's own fantasies about what people thought, felt or wanted. Real-life, useful and useable information? Not up to this point, and the way it's going, I'm not convinced this will change.
It's not that it's all bad or all useless, but there are simply much, much, much better books on the market. Books with far less self-glorification and a lot more hands-on, tried and tested, specific information as well as motivating stories you probably haven't known for decades. From wildly entertaining like Ross Edgley's "The world's fittest book" to deadly serious like Mark Divine's "The way of the Seal".
Thanks Joe. You inspired me through this book. Every time I want to give up or give in the spartan mindset keeps me on track
