The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

“The large majority of people went through school and never competed in any type of event. Triathlons, Spartan Races, and even the Murph Challenge...those are big barriers to entry. With DEKA Fit, we wanted to remove the barrier of entry and I’m pleased to say that 99% of people who attempt a DEKA race finish, '' says Yancy Culp, co-host of the DEKA Series Podcast.  

Spartan Up Podcast, DEKA Series hosts’ Jarod Cogswell and Yancy Culp embark on part four of their five-part series titled “A Life Fueled by Fitness.”  During this mini-series, the guys will get you off the roller coaster of fitness, find your purpose and reframe how you think about training. In this episode you’ll learn:

-Know your scoreboard: focus on the metrics that matter vs the keeping up with the Jones’ mentality

-To celebrate progress and wins, and ways to evidence both

-How to track performance over the short and long term

-Gamification and why you should incorporate this tactic into your regiment
