Chopping Bad Habits: Paul Teutal | Spartan Up Podcast Ep. 215

Presented by Spartan Training®

This week we learn how he literally built his business out of the ashes, spent years overcoming obstacles with alcohol abuse and how strong-bending steel really makes you. Many may wish for overnight success, but would you be ready to handle the consequence?
