Spartan Up! - A Spartan Race for the Mind!

Training for mindset is just as important as training for strength.  But how do you get started?  Today Joe De Sena (founder and CEO of Spartan) talks with Gene Zannetti who created the Z-Winning Mindset program.  The insights in this episode will help you start a daily mindset "workout," whether you are looking to progress as an athlete, professional, student or other areas of performance.

"Everyone says our success in life is 90% mental, but then when you ask them about their preparation, they say 90% physical. I'm not a mathematician over here. But I know that's a problem."


More about Gene Zannetti:

A former nationally ranked, All-Ivy League wrestler, Gene Zannetti and his brother Jeff studied the best athletes, coaches, teams, and experts in the world to learn the secrets of performance success. The Zannetti brothers originally launched their venture as “Wrestling Mindset.” The company has since expanded their systematic mindset training into all sports, businesses and schools. Winning Mindset coaches have worked with thousands of athletes, teams, professionals & coaches at all levels including the Men’s & Women’s USA Olympic Team, UFC fighters, high school state champions and NCAA national champions.
