    "Pisán!!"

    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!

    Story
    "A great fitness book, a great motivational story"
    What made the experience of listening to Fitness Confidential the most enjoyable?

    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.


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

    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.


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

    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.


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

    Hearing his account of the Furnace Creek 508 at the end literally brought me to tears.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a really special book and I recommend it wholeheartedly. Listen all the way to the end.

    "Vinnie brings lagniappe to an excellent book"

    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.

    "Love it! Great story. Great insight into fitness"

    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.

    "Amazing Mental Juice!"

    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!

    "Amazing book!"

    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!
