More about the author's life and not advice.

This is an autobiography. The actual nutrition and fitness advice is lacking severely.
In summary:
1. Cut back on sugar
2. Cut back on grains and breads
3. If you want to massage women's breast implants then become a personal trainer.

The other reviewers are right, I loved it!

I only read this book because it got such great reviews from other readers and I'm very happy that I did. I thought it might be a whole mess of celebrity dirt, and I couldn't have been less interested in that, but it wasn't what I expected at all. The main reason I liked the book is that Vinnie comes across as such a charismatic, decent, no-nonsense, imperfect, relatable guy.

He gives out a little bit of very sensible fitness advice and mainly left me with the impression that 1) there is a generalized 1-size-fits-all fitness/nutrition plan that anyone can use as a starting point, 2) there are no detailed fitness/nutrition plans that are 1-size-fits-all, and 3) he's on your side, with full awareness of how hard it can be for some people, no matter where you are in your journey.

The second theme of the book is how the fitness industry fleeces the public. Finally, there are many funny stories from Vinnie's life as well as some inspirational stories relating to struggles that he's overcome.

It is light reading/listening, but I laughed out loud a lot, enjoyed the experience, and even learned a little.

The best voice in audible with the lungs to match

What made the experience of listening to Fitness Confidential the most enjoyable?

Unlike 99% of the audio books out there, Vinnie (the author himself) actually reads the book and sometimes goes off the script and inserts rants and thoughts. I have already read the book, which was awesome for its content, but the audio book brings my reading to a whole new level. I also enjoyed the last section with Dean Lorey, co-writer on what went into writing the book.

What other book might you compare Fitness Confidential to and why?

I would compare it to a mix between Finding Ultra by Rich Roll and Kitchen Confidential, but much better

What about Vinnie Tortorich’s performance did you like?

I love his true southern Louisiana accent in addition to his occasional off text rants.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me feel every emotion from inspired to laughter to tears.

Any additional comments?

A must buy!

Best suited for someone new to fitness

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I purchased the audio Fitness Confidential based on the recommendation of the Adam Carolla podcast. I have never listed-to Mr. Tortorich's podcast.

What other book might you compare Fitness Confidential to and why?

It follows roughly the same format as Fat-Burning Man by Abel James with respect to dietary recommendations and reviewing the evolution of the processed food industry.

Any additional comments?

Fitness Confidential is best suited to one completely new to fitness. If you are presently active and looking to level-up your routine this is likely not the book for you.

The cover got my attention. The audio kept it.

Would you consider the audio edition of Fitness Confidential to be better than the print version?

I love the audio version because of Vinnie's rants that interrupt his reading of it.

What other book might you compare Fitness Confidential to and why?

I've read a lot of fitness books prior to this one and none of them left me feeling as liberated from my own emotional/ food addiction without ever really calling it that. Vinnie's model is simple, easy to follow and you don't have to buy a bunch of books to get started. This audiobook really has changed my life. So much so that I am interrupting a jog--heart strap monitor on already--to write this review.

What does Vinnie Tortorich bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

This book and Vinnie's reading of his own words has something for everyone as it runs the full gamut of emotions. I laughed, I pondered, I identified, I felt empathy, I'm a guy so I won't say I cried.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Diets are fitness masturbation. Vinnie gives you Fitness Multiples.

Any additional comments?

This audiobook has started me down a lifestyle changing path and has opened me up to viewing fitness information as an informed consumer. I know where to spend my money now--mostly on real food, and how to avoid the diet yo-yo traps. Use your credit and get this audiobook now!

Eye opening and life changing!

Would you listen to Fitness Confidential again? Why?

Yes! A candid look at fitness and the fitness industry. The truth about what works and why. Finally someone wrote a book that cuts through all the crap and gets real on how to get real results! Thanks Vinnie!

What other book might you compare Fitness Confidential to and why?

Why we get fat. And what to do about it.

Excellent Audiobook

If you could sum up Fitness Confidential in three words, what would they be?

I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book and have to say, this is how they should be done. Vinnie doesn’t do it like everyone else, he gives you bonus material which he calls “Lagniappe” to give his reader a little extra. I found myself eager for each new chapter and at times just couldn’t stop listening. I felt much more motivated and excited about making life changes after this book than I have from other prescriptive books, which focus on a lot of rules and instructions of what to do. Vinnie doesn’t do it that way.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fitness Confidential?

I was hooked on the bonus chapter of his experience doing a 508 mile bike race.

Have you listened to any of Vinnie Tortorich’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I didn't know who Vinnie was before I listened to this audio book. Now I'm a fan.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I really appreciated the frank talk about what works and what doesn't work. He lays it out that there are no short cuts or lose weight fat schemes. It takes hard work and commitment.

Any additional comments?

I believe the audio book version is better than the print book because he breaks from the reading with additional material and his narration style feels so natural and real. Highly recommended.

Best fitness book ever.

If you could sum up Fitness Confidential in three words, what would they be?

Truth. Intelligent. Simple.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Vinnie!

Any additional comments?

I have a hard copy of this book, which is fantastic. When I found out that there was an author narrated audiobook available, no questions asked I was going to get it. Vinnie is a great story teller and you "get a little something extra" via the audiobook as well. If you're on the fence about getting this, don't be, buy it.

The best fitness book I've ever read

If you could sum up Fitness Confidential in three words, what would they be?

I must first admit that I am cheating a bit. Fitness Confidential came out on audio book tonight, and I've only listened to about an hour of it. I have however read the physical book fully.

To sum it up in three words - Simple, No-Nonsense Approach

Any additional comments?

Vinnie tells it like it is. He isn't trying to sell you meal plans, supplements, or any of the other garbage that other fitness "programs" offer. I've been following Vinnie's advice now for just a month and I've seen some great gains (losses really). He is a very down to earth person and I think you'll really enjoy this one.

BEST. FITNESS. BOOK. EVER.

Best fitness book ever - and the audio gives extras. This is the beauty of self-publishing. Also, I like the fact that the "ghost" writer gets credit up front and center. That is as it should be. (The publishers wanted cuts or changes. True to self, Vin said "No thanks, I'll do it my way" - well he actually probably through a cuss word or two in there, but you get the ist.)

No holding back honesty. I needed this kick in the but and hope I remember to plug in to the podcast.

Das etwas andere Fitness Hörbuch

Was hat Ihnen das Hörerlebnis von Fitness Confidential besonders unterhaltsam gemacht?

Der Autor und Podcaster Vinnie Tortorich liest selbst - und schweift manchmal ein wenig ab. Das macht das Hörbuch sehr kurzweilig und gibt ihm eine sehr persönliche Note.

Wie hat Ihnen Vinnie Tortorich als Sprecher gefallen? Warum?

Da ich schon einige Podcasts von ihm gehört habe, würde mir kein besserer Sprecher in den Sinn kommen. Es ist 100% Vinnie Tortorich.

Authentisch

Ein herrlicher Einblick in das Leben eines Personal Trainers, Sportlers und liebenswürdigen Menschen. Ich habe es sehr genossen! Speziell die Ausschweifungen und Ergänzungen, die nicht in der Printausgabe zu sein scheinen.
