    Story
    "Great Read/Listen"
    If you could sum up Fitness Confidential in three words, what would they be?

    Inspiring, Educational, Humorous.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Vinnie, of course. His life story of being bullied as a child and surviving cancer and turning those experiences into a strength and eventually a fitness career is inspiring.


    Any additional comments?

    Vinnie destroys the myths behind diet and exercise. You will never look at a loaf of bread or a soda the same again.

    Story
    "CUT THE CRAP"

    Vinnie Tortorich aimed at telling his story of years in the personal fitness and training world and his own health demons. I wanted it to be more of a process book (do this, lose weight and look great) but instead we get a deeply personal story that inspires.

    "Excellent read for any personal trainer"

    Vinnie gave a inside view into the personal training and fitness/health industry. Love that he read it himself. I really appreciate the lagniappe.

    "Great fitness and diet advice"
    What did you love best about Fitness Confidential?

    Vinnie presents diet and exercise information in my favorite manner - No Bull. He doesn't candy coat anything. You get the straight poop here about good and bad gyms, good and bad trainers, good and bad food and useless vitamins and supplements. He helps you make sound decisions that are not only beneficial but also save you money. No sugar, no grains, no calorie counting and use a jump rope! Sounds simple. How many people are going to do it? It’s hard work. It’s worth it! Listen to Vinnie.

    Story
    "Very motivational for me..."
    Would you listen to Fitness Confidential again? Why?

    I've listened to it twice now and will again. I pick up details each time I listen and the details that I remember become solidified for me. Vinnie helped me push past the wall I hit on my weight loss journey and I dropped the 40 pounds I was after. Can't recommend NSNG enough to my friends and family. Vinnie, YOU ROCK!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The message of NSNG. Best piece of advice anyone's ever given me regarding health!


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

    Vinnie's bout with leukemia really moved me. My heart was all in by the end of that long moment.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend Vinnie's book, and podcast, to anyone that shows an interest in getting fit!

    Story
    "Best motivation you can find!"
    What did you love best about Fitness Confidential?

    From the first few words spoken by Vinnie I was hooked! He makes fun of his voice on his podcast, but there is something about it that drew me in right from the start. I think it is so much better when the author records the audiobook themselves instead of hiring someone to read it. Vinnie's life is truly amazing and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to hear his story and to learn the principles of eating correctly as a lifestyle and not as a "diet" like the rest of the world wants you to. Vinnie pulls no punches and I believe that is what we need in society today. Coddling someone will never, ever help them. I've listened to this book 3 times myself since purchasing it in July of 2014 and I have recommended it to basically everyone I know. Thank you Vinnie for all your hard work and inspiration!!!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Vinnie finding out and dealing with his cancer.

    Story
    "NSNG, Healthier Life, Cutting the BS from Gyms"
    What made the experience of listening to Fitness Confidential the most enjoyable?

    The simple fact that Vinnie chose to do his own voice over. I liked that and it applied a much more realistic reading since he threw in his own additional content and points that you wouldn't get from reading the physical non audiobook.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Vinnie Tortorich because he's real, honest, and doesn't pull any punches. Honesty is power!


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

    N/A


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

    Fitness Confidential... No Bullsh*t.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep inspiring and educating Vinnie. I love your podcast too which I've been listening to for months before finally buying this book. Stay honest, I agree and am already on the same page of all of your points in this book. Rock it!

    "Thx for everything you do...book podcast etc"

    I started with jimmy moore and found your podcast thru his sight. I have been making a lot of changes and really enjoyed listening to your book. I have lost about 60 pounds so far and need to lose about another 50. I don't stress over it tho because I know how much healthier I am now. I know I will get there. Thx for the help!
