Davis detailed his struggles with the exercises, such as suffering fatigue or trying to refine his sense of balance. Despite the challenges, Davis expressed his enthusiasm for the method and he chose to turn his life around.

Spartan Race founder, Joe Desena, shares his feelings on the challenge Chris Davis has undertaken. “Chris has made remarkable progress in embracing a new healthy lifestyle. He has shed so much weight already and I’m confident that we can bring him to a weight that measures less than 200 pounds.” Desena continues by appraising Davis’ spirit. “I enjoy hearing stories about how the Spartan Race has inspired people to better themselves, but the fantastic undertaking, and success, Chris took on requires a lot of heart. So many people look up to him and his accomplishments will move others to take on their own challenges.”
