    America's Angriest Trainer, Vinnie Tortorich, exposes the nasty underbelly of the fitness industry while getting you into the best shape of your life. For over 20 years, Vinnie has been Hollywood's go-to guy for celebrities and athletes looking to get fit fast. Now, in this hilarious and often R-rated memoir, he holds nothing back. What's the best piece of fitness equipment money can buy? What's the fastest way to lose weight: diet or exercise? Why are health clubs worse than used car lots? In Fitness Confidential, Vinnie tells all.

    Where does Fitness Confidential rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I finished listening to this audiobook in just 3 days. Every spare moment was spent pressing play on my iphone. I just couldn't put it down.


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

    It's hard to compare it, because like Vinnie says, it's part memoir, part fitness and diet, and part cancer and life lessons. Just a big, wonderful mix.


    What about Vinnie Tortorich’s performance did you like?

    HIs accent is charming. I just love the way he talks.


    Any additional comments?

    It's not a quick fix health book, nor does it pretend to be. I think of it as a great starting point to learn more about his no sugar, no grain brand. After I finished the audiobook I jumped right into listening to his podcasts. Just as entertaining and informative.

    Story

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    Story
    If you could sum up Eat, Pray, Love in three words, what would they be?

    Spiritual, growth, acceptance


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Eat, Pray, Love?

    I loved listening to Ms. Gilbert's encounters in Italy, and actually hearing the foreign language. I was shocked at how really well versed she is in Italian.


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

    The pain in her voice, and the rare enjoyment in hearing the author read their own works. It's as if you're hearing a friend tell you about this trip they took overseas.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely, but I also paused it throughout the day as it was nice to soak in each place versus rushing through the entire story. It requires thoughtfulness, and analogy.
