Mud Run Guide recently received an advance copy of the upcoming book from Spartan Race founder Joe De Sena, Spartan Fit! The book builds on De Sena's first book Spartan Up! to bring readers a 30-day workout plan which requires no gym membership or fancy tools. The book is currently available for pre-order through major online retailers or you can request it from your local bookseller.
The new Spartan Fit! book focuses on De Sena's Seven Pillars which he recently showcased at a pop-up workout in London run by De Sena himself. While our team at Mud Run Guide is working through the book and will bring you an in-depth review soon we received this teaser from Spartan Race to what the book entails.
The man who inspired millions of athletes around the world to push themselves to the finish line in the Spartan Race is now making it his mission to motivate ordinary Americans to join the starting line. Joe De Sena, founder, and CEO of the Spartan Race and author of The New York Times bestseller, Spartan Up!, has written a comprehensive no-nonsense, practical guide: SPARTAN FIT! 30 Days. Transform Your Body. Transform Your Mind. Commit to Grit. No Gym Required (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt; August 2, 2016).
Inspired by the legendary warriors of Sparta and their surprisingly egalitarian society, De Sena shows how anyone at any age can become Spartan fit without a gym membership or fancy diet. But De Sena doesn’t just want Americans to lose weight and feel better, he wants to inspire them to embrace a rich and robust way of life that prepares them for anything that lies and ahead and helps them build grit, tenacity, and endurance and emerge victorious.
De Sena offers a 30-day plan based on his Seven Pillars philosophy:
- Endurance: Train to sustain physical activity for extended periods of time.
- Strength: Increase your body’s muscular capacity to move heavy objects.
- Athleticism: Gain skill-based movements for greater balance, flexibility and coordination.
- Recovery: Practicing active restoration and learn how to let go.
- Nutrition: Learn how to feed yourself for maximum health, not just to shed pounds.
- Mind: Improve your mental toughness, focus, and agility.
- Code: Learn the principles that unite the Spartan community
By applying this foundation SPARTAN FIT! outlines a step-by-step plan for getting into shape for tackling a Spartan race. But don’t expect a one-size-fits-all prescription for leaner thighs and tighter abs. For Spartans, appearance means little. What they really want is a life without limits, a life that transcends the ordinary. And the only way to do that is to get Spartan Fit.
