Description

The Sunday Times best seller.

How to train for anything and everything, anywhere and everywhere.

The World's Fittest Book is set to become every fitness enthusiast's bible. Dubbed the body's complete user guide, it will become the go-to resource for learning all you need to know about building muscle, losing fat, eating (healthy) cake and unlocking your superhuman physical potential. 

Packed with workouts the author tried and tested in the pursuit of multiple world records, it's more than a book, it's the greatest training tool ever written! Designed for anyone who wants to make permanent and lasting changes to their food and fitness, it's the first book to combine the teachings, tips and tricks of Olympic and world champions into one easy to follow resource.

This book will show you how it's possible to:

  • Live below 10 percent body fat with the aid of chocolate and Mayan secrets
  • Add 27 percent more muscle mass, courtesy of tips from world heavyweight champions
  • Increase speed by 10 percent, thanks to gold medal winning Olympic sprinters
  • Squat, deadlift and bench weights you never dreamed of lifting, with the guidance of the world's strongest men
  • Improve endurance capacity by 60 percent, thanks to the knowledge of world champions in multi endurance-based sports

...all of which the author has achieved during the 10-year 'fitness pilgrimage' that has taken him around the globe. 

Aiming to be the most eclectic and comprehensive fitness guide ever created, The World's Fittest Book is the sum and substance of over a decade of research and the collective wisdom of some of the greatest minds and athletic bodies in history. By learning the lessons within it, listeners will understand 'fitness' better than the vast majority of the population. Every chapter has an easy to digest workout within it and can be listened to individually. But if you want to listen to the stories and the science behind the routines, that's there, too. 

Until now, there hasn't been a book covering such an ambitious range of areas, catering for the casual fitness enthusiast seeking clarity and guidance in their own gym routine and kitchen habits as well as the seasoned sportsperson who's hit a plateau and is searching for tips, tricks and tweaks they can make to their training and diet. This book changes that and will take you on a journey to whatever level of fitness you want to find.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our desktop site.

The world's most 'less than mediocre' book

I really want to like this book. But it's really bad. It starts hopeful, when he says what he thinks is wrong with fitness magazines. They promise things that aren't realistic, they use cheap slogans etc. etc.
Here is the thing. The subtitle of the book 'promises' to be x% better in this and that. Well that's not true.
It's just a blatant lie.
1. Literally the only thing he mentions about endurance and running is to not heel strike.
2. He mentions random scientific articles.
3. Random recipes. Seriously 10 min long he talks about how to BBQ a steak. Nothing more.
4. Offers some random programs that suit everyone yet at the same time nobody.
5. Every few minutes he mentions his website which is almost completely a bunch of ads.
6. Uses this 'book' to promote his company.
6a. Here is the 'fun' part. While bashing highly processed foods he forgets that is the thing exactly what he sales on his site.
7. Every story chapter is the same 'here I am, totally out of place
8. Just like all those instagram and fb accounts... just cite either Buddha, Einstein or Emerson every now and then.
Ah well.. this list goes on and on.
This would have been nice as a blog or something. Bro science...
But if you've read my review you probably come to the conclusion this book is precisely what he bashes at the beginning. A fitness magazine.

Full of Great Tips and a Vision of the Extreme

I am involved in a lot of Obstacle Course Races as well as a consistent Crossfit trainer. I can say that there are some things in this book that I already knew since its something that I am really into. However, most of the key information that I took from the book was the stories about the extreme side of sport and what he took from it. In some occasions even giving some workouts that I will probably not try anytime soon.

Giving a vision on the extreme shows me what to expect in those scenarios, what I feel right now during my races and my training is a version of what all athletes feel and he shows how he dealt with it. Its a bit hard to recommend if you are just trying to find a regular workout or some dieting tips. It does have them, but I feel like listeners/readers should do a bit of basic homework on fitness before diving into this one. But for those that are interested in Fitness it is an interesting story that dives into the mindset of someone that does this day to day and takes it to lengths that no one even dares to think.

Boring stories. The book doesn't get to the point

The book is crammed with filler words. All this "amazing" "best" blablabla. I did not finish this one.

Way too long and often boring

The themes are great but could have been told in 10 percent of the time. Definitely not good for an audiobook.
