BOOK REVIEW: SPARTAN FIT!

Joe De Sena is a man of vision. In his new book, Spartan Fit (Houghton Miflin, 2016), the founder of the Spartan obstacle course race series lays out that vision, giving his readers not just an effective guide to improving strength and fitness, but also a view on how to live a more adventurous and healthful life.

De Sena takes his philosophy from the ancient Spartans, recommending a stripped down exercise and eating regiment that avoids fancy equipment and processed foods. His 30-day training program, based on principles that I agree with and advocate in my own books, is designed to build endurance, strength, and athleticism without requiring readers to join a gym or buy expensive equipment, and his eating suggestions and included recipes favor a varied plant-based diet that nourishes the body without sacrificing taste.

But De Sena provides more than just a program. Spartan Fit also include inspiring stories of people who overcame challenges to achieve a measure of greatness, from an adventure racer battling horrific race day conditions, to a woman who overcame two crippling car accidents to find her way back to a meaningful life. These stories, as well as a recounting of the way of life practiced by the ancient Spartans, leave the reader not only with the tools to get stronger and healthier, but with the inspiration to lead a more adventurous, meaningful life. It’s a book worth reading.
