Présentation de l'éditeur

When Joe De Sena took part in the Utatek endurance race, held in Quebec in the middle of winter, he had to cover 350 desolate, frozen miles by iceboat, skis and mountain bike, hiking through knee-deep snow or climbing icy mountains without a rope. When he explained to people what he had done, they said he was stupid or suicidal. He saw it another way: he had accomplished more than he ever knew was possible. Taking on big challenges shows you possibilities you didn't know existed.

With that experience in mind, De Sena set up Spartan Races, a series of extreme obstacle events. Whether over three miles or marathon distances, competitors are faced with a series of challenges, from crawling through mud under barbed wire to carrying a heavy sandbag, to push them beyond their limits. De Sena shows how with a simple philosophy - commit to a goal, put in the work, and get it done - people can achieve remarkable things. Whether you are up for the challenge yourself, or just want to learn more about life at the extremes, this book is for you.

J'ai trouvé ce livre très commercial et très américain dans son approche, mais cela ne m'a pas empêchée de l'apprécier. Le parcours de Joe De Sena est intéressant, la création de la Spartan Race et sa philosophie également. C'est la manière de se vendre à tout prix que j'ai le moins aimé... Il fait une desciption assez effrayante de la société américaine, des problèmes d'obésité et de surpoids, de l'éducation de la jeune génération... je ne suis pas sûre qu'elle soit applicable à toute la société américaine, mais en tout cas le désir de De Sena de permettre à tous de se dépasser dans des courses à obstacles exigentes, éprouvantes et aussi amusantes est tout à fait louable. J'aime l'esprit de la Spartan Race. Je pense juste que l'approche américaine peut faire grincer des dents quelques européens, qui n'ont pas cette habitude de se mettre agressivement en avant. Juste une différence culturelle.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Mainly a book to sell the authors spartan events 2 juin 2014
Par TheManCoach - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I'm truly disappointed in this book. I had it on pre-order and was under the impression that Joe De Sena, who is admittedly an absolute bad ass, would share his wisdom and secrets to success. Instead, 80% of the book is describing the Spartan Races he runs and testimonials/stories from people who have done one of his races. The actual useful content is minimal and to suggest its 20% useful content is too generous.

Other than the book being an obvious marketing ploy to sell his events, the editing is shocking. There is no flow to the book nor substance.

If the title is something that interests you I would suggest just going on his Spartan events and saving the time and financial investment on this book. I'm sure that people who've ran his races would enjoy this book more but personally, I'm thoroughly disappointed.

Par nurse - Publié sur

I'm what you call a person who exercised...recreationally. Last December, I joined a few friends from work for the Spartan Sprint. I am definitely one of those people who was out of my element, but was able to finish. Spartan race taught me what it means to have friends you can rely on. When you get lost in the hustle & bustle of life, you get used to doing everything yourself. I was then placed in a position where you can't do things by yourself, so I had to learn to trust others (again), and ended up building bonds and lasting memories. After the race, I was too tired to work out regularly, hence the continued "recreationalist". I ordered his book, read it (it's an easy read, 2 days), and started applying his common sense knowledge to life. I pretty much say to myself in the mornings now: cookie test (you will understand when you read the book). I also tell myself (when people throw high calorie food at me at work): is it worth it? In an effort to help others, I announce: 5 lb weight gain awaits you in the break room! John de Sena also has a lot of anecdotes, which I enjoyed reading.

In typical New Yorker fashion, Joe DeSena calls it like he sees it. His goal with starting Spartan Race was to get people up and moving -- "off the couch". The book provides a great backdrop for better understanding the race and the objective of the obstacles and how they serve as a metaphor for our daily lives.

Now that said, I am a Spartan -- I've completed 3 Spartan Races (2 Supers & a Sprint) and I have two more to go this year -- one of which will get me my first Trifecta. I love the races because it pushes me beyond my own limits and shows m that I am so much more capable then even I think I am. Now you have to understand -- I am the least likely athlete I know. When I say "off the couch" I sincerely mean it. I lost 100 lbs and then started running. When I started a year and a half ago (in my 40s) I could barely run from one telephone pole to the next, but our office has a Spartan team and they convinced me that nothing was impossible Six months after I started I completed my first Super (8+ miles and 20+ obstacles). My sister ran by my side and my team stayed well beyond their own finish times to see me come across the finish line. From there I was hooked. Despite my self-imposed limits in my head I was able to finish because of my heart and the reality is you really do "know at the finish line".

I enjoyed the book. Having met Mr. DeSena and shared with him the details of my personal journey it's not hard to hear his voice in your head as you read the book. You hear him telling you to "Spartan Up" and stop feeling sorry for yourself and to get moving. My only critique about the book was that while the message was great I found it a bit scattered and not really cohesive in thought. I will confess though I read it in small chunks with a highlighter in hand so perhaps it was just the way I read it that lead me to that conclusion.

If you think you need to be an elite athlete to run a Spartan Race and that's your excuse for not doing it, I'm here to tell you get off the couch and get moving. Sign up for a race and trust me, "You'll Know at the Finish Line" because if I can do this -- anyone out there can!

Mixed Martial arts is the fastest growing sport and right after that are obstacle course marathon’s that test the competitor in a variety of way. This book is about a certain type of obstacle race that is both grueling yet meant to be a vehicle for personal growth. I effect if serves to toughen one up and yet gives more.
The Spartan race is much like obstacle race and yet somewhat more. The competitors will slog thorough waist deep mud, go through ice cold water, crawl under barbed wire and scale a 12 foot wall that is covered with grease. Competitors are left out in the wilderness to find their way back. It developed of the “Death Race” which was far more intense and sometimes life threatening. The Spartan Race is not as dangerous but it is still tough. No less people come to these events in droves.
What drives people to do these somewhat beyond insane races? One is that going through something so tough gives one a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. Your confidence level goes up so much that anything after the Spartan Race seems easy. It forces you out of your comfort zone. The commitment forces you to train and you are not the same person you were after you cross the finish line.

Spartan Races go beyond just a group of people running an intensely challenging race. They have become a community, a community based on the warrior ideals of Sparta. The competitors goes against each other yet they help each other out. Even while people help each other it also fosters a sense of independence. The Spartan were a warrior society that took the hard way out. The youth were removed from the home at 6 or 7 and then sent to live in the wilderness on their own. It was either sink or swim. It was a rite of passage.

Spartans do not take eth easy way out in fact they go for the most stringent way. There are no shortcut on this path. It is al hard work to make you the best you can be. The author has lots to say in this book that could make your life better even if you do not ever wish to enter a Spartan Race. The author talks about exercise and diet, the two most important medicines to keep you well .He criticizes the alienation of modern kids to nature and slams down the helicopter parents who are so overprotective of their children. They need to toughen up and be ready for the outdoor world. He has a critical view of technology our over reliance on it. Most important of all is development of grit or determination to persevere despite the difficulty and in a nutshell that is hat people need to obtain. You will like this book as it is not a feel good New Agey book.

I loved a lot of the Ideas and philosophies in this book. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because I felt the author went a little heavy on promoting his own event, if his main goal is to get people off the couch he wouldn't be concerned with only doing it through his event, however I loved the idea of changing your frame of reference.
