  • "I am the happiest and healthiest I have ever been in my life. Four years ago on June 20, 2015, I decided to get on my motorcycle after drinking. I woke up in the hospital days later and at the time we didn't know, but my left upper body was paralyzed due to a brachial plexus injury.

Scariest part about my situation was that in 3 months I was going to be a single father to a beautiful little girl. It turns out that she was and is my brightest light. Because of her I didn't have time to sit and wallow about my paralysis. I started working out to ensure that I would be strong enough to hold her in my arm for as long as possible. 
Fast forward 3 years and my daughter and I are truly living life and continue to make positive differences in our lives and in others. Because of her ability to adapt to a single arm father as well as having a positive attitude, we have become motivational speakers and professional athletes....the both of us.

So, when life presents you with a challenge..... You Adapt". @armsolo_

  • Spartan Founder & CEO, Joe De Sena, wanted to make sure the next trail shoe with his brand on it would be the most industructable shoe in the world. So he put it through a grueling cycle of tests to make sure they were ready for the world to step into and be race ready!

The result, well, let's just say we put a 1 year money back warranty on it. AROO! 
Available for pre-order! https://sprtn.im/rd-pro

"My whole life I battled with weight issues. I turned to drugs at 18 thinking it would help manage those issues. In 2004, I lost my grandmother to suicide, my best friend was murdered, and a women ran in front of my car when I was driving along the highway & committed suicide. I spun out of control but I finally started getting a grip on life, or so it appeared that way. Life came crashing down on me again. I received the news that my father was killed by a drunk driver. I numbed the pain with drugs & alcohol. 
Finally, I got clean. In the process I gained 100 lbs. I tried everything I could to lose the weight, & eventually received weight loss surgery. It saved my life. I did my best not to drink, but eventually I gave in & again… I found myself losing myself. I got tired of losing myself to substances. I got help & decided I was going to dedicate myself to getting sober & getting healthy.

At my heaviest of 300 lbs, I couldn’t finish a 5k walking, let alone tackle a Spartan. I had to commit to this to prove to myself I could finish & I wasn’t the person I was before. So I started reading “Spartan Up”, training, & found other Spartans who believed in me. I signed up for the Monterey Super in June of 2018. When I finished, I understood the saying “You’ll know at the finish line.” A new spark of life & accomplishment hit. On April 14th, 2019, I ran the Seattle Sprint, in honor of my friend that was murdered. The feeling of accomplishment when I finish a race is like no other. Every race is different and tests me physically, mentally & spiritually. The people I meet along the race are so amazing & encouraging. I’ve made lifelong friendships because of Spartan. My life is so rich & full now. I feel incredibly blessed to have found Spartan. I can truly say it has helped change my life, one obstacle at a time. I have so much gratitude to those I have met & who have supported me & I hope that I can support & encourage others just as they have for me. Today, I am down 140 lbs, I’ll be 2 years sober in June, & I am a Spartan Woman." #Spartan #Spartantransformation
