Spartan Up! - A Spartan Race for the Mind!

“The thing I think that's true, no matter where you live or who you are, most people in the fitness community are going to cheer for you and push you to be better because they're pushing themselves to be better,” says April Lauren, who is on a journey to lose 200 lbs, and to live each day a little brighter than the day before.


Today Yancy and Jarod talk with April Lauren about some advice she has for people to stay on your mission and how to help the people around you succeed in their goals. In this episode, you’ll learn:

The things you should and shouldn’t say to someone who is on the road to living their healthiest life
The excitement looking down the road and envisioning where she’ll be when she’s reached her goal of losing 200 pounds
Importance of having people in your life who encourage you, and being that same person to others around you
Being able to keep the right approach and mindset so that when you miss a day it’s not a setback

“The thing about negative thoughts, though, is that they can become barriers to us moving forward and achieving the things that we want, when we listen to them. Negative thoughts are a bit, a little bit like seeds, right? We plant them in our brain. But if we attend to them, right? And if we water them through that attention, they will grow and they will spread. So we actually want to work on some different skills, where we take the negative thoughts and we shift them, or transform them, or we move away from them altogether,” says Dr. Lara Pence, Spartan’s Chief Mind Doctor.


In this episode, we look back to some great episodes for help dealing with negative thoughts so we’re prepared going into the New Year. We look to Sal Di Stefano, Nate Carr, and Dr. Lara Pence to help us fight our demons. In this episode you’ll learn…


- Impact of training with a negative mindset of yourself instead of a negative one
- You don’t invite negative thoughts, they just come in. Prepare and train yourself for them
- NO means “Next opportunity”
- Counter-thinking negative thoughts, acknowledging they are only thoughts, and removing judgment about the thought

“The trajectory of everything, everything that was going on in the world, my emotional state, that if I didn’t put my foot down, that I was going to be someone on TV…someone on TV where they’re so heavy that they’re completely immobile. And I did not want that,” says April Lauren, who is on a journey to lose 200 lbs, and to live each day a little brighter than the day before.


Today Yancy and Jarod talk with April Lauren about how she’s changing the picture for people who don’t know how or where to get started for a healthier lifestyle. In this episode, you’ll learn:

- Getting started on the weight loss journey and turning pain from everyday life into motivation to be healthier
- Progression is key. Do what you can when getting started and take as many breaks as your body needs
- Finding a point of measure

The Food Babe, Vani Hari, lived on soda, fast food, and processed food (the typical American diet.) It landed her in a hospital. That's when the research on food ingredients, additives, and chemicals that became "the Food Babe" began. Vani and Joe De Sena, founder and CEO of Spartan, share a passion for clean food, even when it has become socially difficult.   At the end of the interview, Vani shares a surprising tip for a better diet - turn of the TV!

Sleep is the platform that all good health sits upon, says Dr. Kirk Parsley. A Navy SEAL who became an MD "Doc Parsley" found that almost all the high-performing patients he worked with had sleep issues. The more he studied it, the more he found out about the importance of sleep for resilience and performance. Today he talks with Joe De Sena, Spartan founder, and CEO, who has always said "I'll sleep when I'm dead." Dr. Parsley lectures worldwide on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization and is currently completing a book on sleep and health optimization.

“You don’t want it to just be challenging for the most capable person in your formation, because then you’re going to crush everybody below them and they’re gonna feel awful. And you don’t want to just make it challenging for the less capable folks in your formation, because then you’re not going to challenge the folks up high. You have to consistently work to identify how you can make the experience one that elevates everyone, hopefully simultaneously,” says Chandler Smith, former Army Captain, 4-Year West Point Wrestler, and 3x Crossfit Games athlete.

 

Today Yancy and Jarod talk with Chandler Smith about trying to find balance in life, finding the right environment, and elevating yourself and other people along the way. In this episode, you’ll learn:

- Just because you’re having a bad day doesn’t mean you should make it bad for someone else

- You’re open to more pain when dedicated to something

- There’s no losses in life if you believe in what you’re doing

- The power of remembering someone’s name

“But then after these events that you see as only having negative outcomes occur, after they happen, you can, oftentimes, look back and be like, 'Alright well that actually ended up being something that forced me to think about things in a completely different way, that challenged me and made me a lot better.' And that's how I view that now. Like, without the finger thing happening, I definitely don't make the Crossfit Games in 2019 and probably don't end up figuring out the rest of my Army career, as far as how to relate it to fitness... So I'm really lucky, I think, that it happened,” says Chandler Smith, former Army Captain, 4-Year West Point Wrestler, and 3x Crossfit Games athlete.

 

Today Yancy and Jarod talk with Chandler Smith about how having pain exposed has helped him be a better athlete and a better human being. In this episode, you’ll learn:

- Learning to suffer on the path to success, and not expecting success to just happen out of nowhere

- You can find positives in everything, even after losing part of a finger

- You need to recognize your weaknesses and realize you will not always be the best at what you do

Joe - "What if your neighbor's kid started to see what--"

"Then so be it. Right? I was cool with it. I mean, again, I wasn't chasing dollars, I was not trying to become famous, I was not trying to take over the world.

And again, if it was one bottle or one million bottles, to me there is no difference, it was just doing something great," says GT Dave.

He graduated from the University of Cambridge, joined Y Combinator with PNOĒ in 2019, and has joined the Fortune 40 under 40 Greek list. He loves windsurfing and strength training.

Alex Wisch is the founder of Wisch Fit. During the pandemic he teamed up with Spartan to raise awareness and money for veterans mental health by completing 1000 strict pull-ups, 2000 push-ups and 3000 squats with a 20 lbs vest in about 6 hrs.
