In case you haven’t noticed, I get down with plenty runs, races, and events. As a life-long athlete, nothing brings order and happiness to my life quite like training for something. It’s exciting, all-encompassing, and effects every aspect of my life: sleep, training, diet, nutrition, alcohol, and choices. When I have a schedule full of races (especially Spartan Races – AROO!) I find myself sleeping more and earlier, making healthier food choices, and cutting back on alcohol. It’s an easy, natural process because it makes logical sense.
That’s part of the reason I’m proud to participate in Spartan Races. It’s not just a race – it’s a thriving, vibrant community of people and an equally healthy, vivacious lifestyle. It’s a way of being, focused on health and mental and physical badassness all year round. That’s why all of us Spartans are so addicted and adamant about our big, international family. This lifestyle of working hard, eating right, and being tough is personified in co-founder Joe De Sena’s newest book, Spartan Fit!
Spartan Fit! is a 31-day guide that won’t just get you ready to tackle one of our kickass obstacle races. It’s a cheat sheet to crafting a Spartan life from the ground up – no gym, products, or gimmicks required. The book focuses on utilizing our own bodyweight, mental toughness, and spirit to create a strong, sexy, and successful body that’s capable of handling any obstacle with gusto.
The beauty of a no-gym, no-equipment workout plan is multi-faceted; it preaches self-reliance, which in turns boosts self-esteem and confidence in all areas of life. It empowers people that are logistically, economically, or socially unable to join or uncomfortable in a gym setting to still get a great workout without monthly fees or judgment. You can workout in your garage, the park, while your kids are at school or the baby’s sleeping. NO excuses, no exceptions.
Since the Spartan Trifecta is coming out here to Hawaii in August (yay!) I’ll be gearing up to do a giveaway very soon! Hawaii folks, remember that the race sold out last year, so be sure to sign up as soon as possible!
Mahalo, and happy lifting, running, and being a badass 🙂
