What is Spartan Strength?

The adjective “spartan” references Sparta, a Greek city that produced some of the finest warriors in the ancient world.  These warriors were known for their extreme discipline and resourcefulness.  I can think of no better word than “spartan” to describe my philosophy of fitness, with its primary focuses being on discipline and resourcefulness.  I have set up this blog to show that you can get into shape without buying lots of “stuff” that the health industry has brainwashed people into thinking that they need.  Spartan Strength is all about getting the maximum health benefits out of a minimum investment, whether that investment is time, money, space or sweat.  In the words of Theodore Roosevelt, “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”  Couldn’t have said it better myself, Teddy. The articles below best illustrate the core tenants of the Spartan Strength philosophy.  Start with them if you really want to see the big picture.
