Well, you sure show it now! AROO!! Rosie asked us if you would share a "day in the life of Pete". So, can you tell us how you fit in working, training, family and all to make each day great?
Would you like me also to leave some voice message as well.
just text please. Thanks!
Are used to be a personal trainer many years ago. In 1989 was when I qualified so I’ve never had any challenges getting myself motivated to exercise.
Rosie asked us if you would share a "day in the life of Pete". So, can you tell us how you fit in working, training, family and all to make each day great?
Pete - Mike has asked if you could please share the most difficult thing or obstacle you faced in doing the Every Day Spartans journey.
Going down would be hard and UP too! Way to go Pete!!
Miguel has asked - if you could do a Spartan race ANYWHERE in the world, where would you go and why?
We hope you heal up well and can definitely come join us in Sparta, Greece this year for the Spartan Trifecta World Championship. Speaking of injuries...we know it is hard to "hold back" on traing and such and healing is so important. What are you doing to continue training but heal well too? What is your best advice to the community to not feel defeated?
I recommend everyone try this brand-new exercise I invented when I was last with Joe. It’s called the Burpee hug
We like that!!
Great advice Pete! Thank you! Sarah wants to know what was the biggest take away from being on the Every day Spartans adventure?
That’s a really good question regarding my biggest takeaway. It was definitely just how amazing the Spartan community is and that when we work together we can do so much more
Jackson has asked if you could share with us what your weekly training is like (if not injured).....running, lifting, cross training? Do you vary it each day?
The video of me above is when I was on the Spartan Up Podcast which was a dream come true
Excellent! Pete - you have been a great inspiration to so many! What is a quote you "live by" that you can share with the community?
My favourite quote is “ our future is unwritten and we have the power to change.”
I also have another one which is “a great life doesn’t happen by chance that happens by design”
Great quote! We agree for sure.
What is your next Spartan planned (hoping you heal up well) and what are your top 3 goals for 2020?
My goal is to do as many races as I can this year. I’m 50 years old this year and I wanna be the fittest I’ve ever been in my entire life. I have a very popular podcast that I will so want to continue to grow as it’s all about inspiring people to close the gap in their life between where they are and where they want to be. It’s called The Pete Cohen Podcast. And another goal is just to be a great husband to my wife. I often train so much that forget she exists. Time for that to change. I wish she would become a Spartan athlete
Excellent goals and we wish you all the success!
Couple last questions - what is the best piece of advise you can give to someone who has not raced in a Spartan but wants to?
Thank you Pete! Great advice and it IS all about commitment. Thank you for your time today and we wish you all the best in your recovery and this year. Feel free to share your social channels with the community so they may follow or reach out. AROO! and THANK YOU!
Thank you everyone for your questions. Sorry I was late. I have just done 100 burpees

“There is no special sauce or magic bullet. You just have to get started. Put one foot in front of the other. Your brain will come up with hundreds of excuses to not do it. It never wants to be uncomfortable. You have to just not think and do.” Joe De Sena
What is a Spartan Sprint? For those of you who are new to Spartan or never heard of it, this is our shortest course and great for new Spartans! The Sprint is the first step to earning a Spartan Trifecta. Get ready for 3 miles and 20 obstacles on rugged terrain. There will be smiles and struggles along the way as you earn something to be proud of. The Sprint is a short distance race, but it’s full of challenges. Every time you run a Sprint you’ll push yourself a little harder - so it never gets easier, you just get stronger. Returning Spartans regularly use the Sprint to test their speed and agility, while most newbies see it as the perfect introduction to the sport of Obstacle Course Racing.
Nearly 2800 years ago, the Stadion, a massive sprint race, was held at the first-ever Olympic games. A test of speed, strength and willpower, the Stadion was a highly celebrated event, with competitors coming from afar to test their abilities. Today, Spartan honors that tradition, as we take over some of the most famous stadiums around the globe with fierce competition and camaraderie. Whether you are a veteran Spartan looking for a challenge, or a newbie looking to test your skill, the Spartan Stadion offers a wide range of obstacles for every skill level.
