6 years ago Joe De Sena, founder of Spartan Race, Inc., came to me on a whim and said “maybe we should do a podcast.” We started from 0. No listeners, no show idea, no co-hosts. Today Spartan Up Podcast has over 30 million views and downloads and a stable of 17 amazing hosts.
Our guests have included Sir Richard Branson, Arianna Huffington, Mark Cuban, Gary Vaynerchuck, Tim Ferriss, Ed Mylette, Ryan Holiday, Mirna Valerio (the Mirnavator), Joe Polish, and literally hundreds of others.
We've expanded adding new series that take our program of resilience for mind and body to you throughout the week with tips on psychology, resilience, nutrition and more.
In 2019 we developed Spartan World Media Fest - an event for podcasters in health, wellness & self improvement.
