Spartan Fit! 31 Days. Transform Your Mind. Transform Your Body. Commit to Grit. No Gym Required

Joe De Sena, with John Durant. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $24 (256p) ISBN 978-0-544-43960-3
In this inspiring fitness manual, De Sena (Spartan Up!) outlines a plan for readers to reach peak performance levels, urging them to “get off the couch, put down the French fries, and abandon the normal of inactivity.” He explains that there’s more to becoming fit than a list of exercises, and that the Spartan Fit program is intended to train both body and mind. De Sena challenge his “warriors” to put in the work as if their lives depended on it, with strenuous exercises such as rope climbing, push-ups, pull-ups, squat jumps, rope lunges, skipping, bear crawls, and carrying buckets of gravel up and down a hill. But De Sena doesn’t stop there, listing creative challenges—intended only for top-level athletes—named after figures from Greek mythology and history. These include Homer, working out either blindfolded or in the dark; Icarus, training at high altitudes; and Tantalus, working out while fasting. This book is ideal for workout enthusiasts who want to push themselves to the limit. Agent: Marc Gerald, Agency Group. (Aug.)
