Its Vinnie at his best, and I now listen to his pod cast
If u are looking at getting into shape check this book out.
Greatest, most honest, respectful, and most importantly, the most reasonable and evidentially driven fitness and nutrition information I've ever read. No joke and no blowing smoke! Thank you, Vinnie!
I know Vinny says he's not a very good reader, but I was entertained and enchanted by his delivery of his own story. I would definitely recommend getting this on audio just to hear the asides and the extra "lanyap" at the end with his co-author.
Hmm. I guess I can't really think of another book like this. It was both instructional (prescriptive! I learned a new thing) and a memoir.
Ha. No. I haven't even listened to his podcast. I have no idea how this compares. I had never heard of him before I got the recommendation on Audible. In fact, when I started listening to the book, I thought, "oh, trainer to the stars... blah blah blah," but I quickly realized he's way more than just some lame celebrity trainer.
Hearing his account of the Furnace Creek 508 at the end literally brought me to tears.
This is a really special book and I recommend it wholeheartedly. Listen all the way to the end.
Thanks vinnie for your amazing story. You are truly unique . Perfect reading speed. I can listen at 1x - dean karnazi I had to listen to 1.25 as it was slow and boring. Vinnie is perfect, highly recommended. Nuns and kids were so mean to vinnie
If you don't know what lagniappe (lanyap) is, you have to listen. Vinnie gives everything from silly stories, life lessons, and weight lifting essentials his typical real life spin.
Vinny gets you involved and wanting to know more about his life. Fitness and diet are part of his life but not all of it. Really great audiobook.
Great book to get inside the life of personal trainers.....and I especially loved the part that broke down how fitness clubs and mega gyms run.....very inspirational!
This book not only provides the very inspirational story of Vinnie Tortorich, but provides great information on a no sugars, no grains lifestyle and our ability to put a little life into living. It's entertaining, informative, and inspirational! I am very excited to read his next book once it is released. This is a must read!
I am so motivated after reading this book! Loved it!! Vinnie has lived a hard life but was able to find motivation in everything. Even using some of that negativity to fuel him to cross the finish line of the furnace creek 508. So inspired!
