Summary

New York Times best-selling author Joe De Sena, founder and CEO of Spartan, the global health and wellness platform, leader in obstacle racing, and executive producer of NBC’s television show Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge, challenges you to live the Spartan way.  

Determined to yank 100 million people off their couch cushions to start living instead of being passive observers of life, Joe De Sena has one ultimate goal: to help improve everyone’s physical and emotional health by teaching them the tenets of Spartan living from ancient Greece: simple eating, smart training, mastering resilience, and an all-out commitment to achieving a goal.  

Like Spartan training, living the Spartan way requires endurance to reach your finish line, the goal that inspires and drives you to succeed no matter what obstacles are thrown in your path. De Sena believes you can gain that endurance in just 36 days by following the 10 Spartan core virtues, timeless principles to help you embrace adversity and overcome any challenge, and making them a permanent part of your own personal core.  

The Spartan core values include:  

  • Self-awareness - know yourself 
  • Commitment - be dedicated 
  • Passion - discover your purpose 
  • Discipline - practice diligence 
  • Prioritization - put your house in order 
  • Grit - push your limits 
  • Courage - face your fears and your failures 
  • Optimism - look for the positives  
  • Integrity - act honestly  
  • Wholeness - live as a Spartan  

De Sena turned this philosophy into a lifestyle - and so can you. With The Spartan Way, you’ll discover your true north, unleash the warrior within, and transform your life to 10 times your maximum potential.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Some gems within the book but narrator did nothing for the book

No doubt there are some great bits of advice, but the narrator makes it into an instructional text book, the book could be so much more had it been delivered in a more personably way I think, I did take things from it but wasn’t the most enjoyable book.

Very thoughtful (and physical) book.

The book had me think about life in an expanded way. (As well , how i exercise in life and in gym)
A great listen for the professional coach in any genre.

listened to it 4 times!

I wanted to get my mind in a new place so I listened to the book 4 times. I needed a constant reminder to seek my true North and do hard things. It worked. I'm back on track and looking forward to the challenges before me.

I am Spartan!

This is definitely my favorite book by Joe De Sena.
Trully inspirational and practical. It gives you the tools to become a true spartan in body and mind. A true eye opener.
There are so many gold nuggets in this book I'm going to go through it again right away.
A must read if you want to learn how to achieve your goals and be successful in anything you do.

Good book.

I enjoyed it. Sometimes it is like revisiting basic training. Can occasionally be a little trite.
