The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Feel a lack of motivation?  Find a problem that needs to be solved. Ryan joins Spartan Race founder and CEO Joe De Sena to talk about it. He enlisted in the Navy after watching the Twin Towers fall on 9/11, and Parrott served eight years as a U.S. Navy SEAL completing three combat tours to Iraq before being assigned to Advanced Training Command as an Instructor.  


He saw the need for better burn care, he started Sons of the Flag. Today he sees a need for better physical education and he's starting the The Human Performance Project to dissect and share essentials of human physiology.
