Spartan Up!














Many of our athletes also participate in obstacle course racing during the warmer months. Some of the most popular series of races are the Spartan Races. What types of things can you expect from a Spartan Race? “There is fire, mud, water, barbed wire, and occasionally Hell on Earth.” Joe De Sena, co-founder of Spartan Race has written a new book that serves as a manual for the Spartan way of life. Here are some of the things you can expect:


– 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.
– Changing your frame of reference: Reset your inner default as an antidote to dissatisfaction and the insatiable need for “more.”
Getting Spartan fit: Survival of the Fittest means training outside the gym for strength, endurance and flexibility throughout the entire body—and don’t forget those burpees!
-Moving mountains: Whether metaphorical mountains or the ones on which Spartans race, what you think are your limits can be a mere starting point for transformation.

Age, gender, and physical ability are no barrier and finishers become entirely new people, without limitations,
living life to the fullest. That’s why the Spartans say: “You’ll know at the finish line.”
