Joe De Sena On How To Train Like A Spartan

It's more than a race; it's a lifestyle.

In this interview, we hear from founder of the world’s best obstacle race, Joe de Sena. This innovative, one-of-a-kind adventure race is more than a test of physical ability - a Spartan race represents the discipline, commitment and self-awareness that is needed to overcome any obstacle in life.


Vishen and Joe discuss how the epic race, like life, is a mental game. It's a test to push past the point of suffering where most people give up, to push our body past any preconceived notions of what we think it's capable of.


Joe expands on other principles of the Spartan Way, including passion, prioritization, courage and integrity, and explains how they are the pillars we need to master to surmount adversity.


He shares tried-and-true fitness tips, his personal exercise regime and the types of training programs required to successfully complete the different levels of races. He proves how the average person can get ready for a Spartan race in as little as 30 days.


“I saw the transformations taking place in the people that were doing the races. And I know how good I felt. I wanted to just be around that energy and that lifestyle. And I just wouldn’t quit.”
