The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

“Coach each other. You may not have a certification, but put that coaching hat on. Like, ‘Hey, you want to go to class today with me?’ My wife went to a cycle class this morning at 5:00 AM. She had a friend, she asked her, ‘Do you want to go with me?’ And it’s really, really hard to say no to that,” says Yancy Culp, co-host of the DEKA Series and Co-Creator of Spartan DEKA.

Today Yancy and Jarod are talking about 5 tactical ways that are going to help you weaponize your fitness to conquer 2022 and beyond. In this episode, you’ll learn about:

- Armoring up for the obstacles ahead
- Bullet-proofing your mindset
- Attacking your passions
- Teaming up with a like minded tribe
- Conquering your goals instead of reaching them
