Publisher's 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.

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.

Very good, motivates you off the couch!

Good book, gets you motivated! In terms of information a personal trainer can use its worth a free token, but not the money.

Awesome book!

This book was the best Spartan book! The narrator read it great. Every single word of this book made me motivated and wondering why I was sitting at a desk and not running a Spartan race instead!

Just flat out awesome.

I'm very excited to put these things into practice. We all need this material even if it's just a good reminder of lessons we've learned. Grit and determination are so rare in people today.

LOVED IT

I found a ton of inspiration in this book and it reinforces why I'm pushing to do what I do. This was a great reminder to stay in the arena and continue to kick ass despite the challenges; to embrace the sick and find joy in the accomplishments. I want to be who God created me to be, and will embrace the Spartan principles in order to do it. I loved this book! I'm pushing to complete my trifecta in December, and know it will be epic, and appreciate the kick in the butt reminder to keep striving!

Some of this information was useful to me

I find this audiobook hard going
Some of the information was useful but for me I feel it lacked compassion
It came from the toughen up school which has its place but to me that is only one aspect of the way forward
Still it was useful
Would have liked it to give it 2 1/2 stars
Also the presenter was off putting for me
