Since arriving in Pittsfield on in late July, Danny Rodriguez is undergoing a full body transformation! On August 7, Danny weighed in at 374 pounds, a 36 pound loss from his initial arrival. The 10 days prior, he lived in a stone hut only accessible by foot, without power or running water. He was living on apples and water for his initial food detox.
He’s now down in the village doing daily workouts and work and living on a raw diet managed by Spartan founder Joe De Sena and spartan staffers and professional athletes. As of this week, Danny is weighing in at 345 pounds and taking on challenges he never thought possible. On August 24, Rodriguez completed a 10+ mile hike and has been tackling his workouts, nutrition, and healthy way of living with a vengeance.
We first met Danny at the Midwest Spartan and he has already come a long way. Then, he weighed in just over 400 pounds. That makes his total weight loss 65 pounds. He has a long way to go, but we know he will continue to make progress and push through to find new heights in his training and full mind-body transformation.
What is your excuse? It’s time to get off the couch and outside in the mud! Find a race near you HERE.
