Spartan Up!

Spartan Up! by Joe De Sena is a book that highlights and focuses on physical health through exercise. It does this by showcasing the world renowned Spartan Races created by Joe De Sena. These marathon type races consist of extreme obstacles and challenges that even the likes of military personnel such as marines and Olympic athletes find extremely challenging. The Spartan Races are a huge challenge to a person’s will. Joe makes it clear that even though many and maybe even most participants are there to win, there are those participants who are there to simply challenge themself and just complete the course.

Spartan Up! can very easily be applied to business. The stories of perseverance, and overcoming obstacles and hardship in life to even be able to compete and participate in the Spartan Races in the first place can be used and connected to as inspiration and motivation for the likes of those who love to feel inspired.

      Also, a great book that I have showcased on the site titled, Performing Under Pressure, I recommend it for you to take a look. Just a side note, I have communicated with this author personally through email – haha. 🙂 He responded back to me giving me permission to use his book cover as the image in the post before I had set BBR up for guests to make purchases. He seems like a great guy. He gave me a bunch of encouragement moving forward as well. It was a real nice, genuine response.

  2. Hi Tyler,

    I haven’t read that book yet, but I am definitely interested. I am starting jogging regularly and plan on doing marathons. This would definitely be on my list once I get to that point. I will have to check the book out for sure. Thanks for the overview and information regarding the book!

    • Hello Jennie. Right on. I do not do much running. I prefer to do some of the other machines instead for cardio rather then running simply because I believe that running over an extended amount of time is hard on the body.

      Do you have any marathons in mind?

      • Hi Tyler,
        I will start small with a local half marathon or something based on how I have progressed at that point. I am currently in Ohio and will start looking more into it in early spring. I will go from there and just keep working on improvement. Thanks!
