i'm a huge sly fan and found this to be an entertaining read, even informative but to truly benefit from the workout material this audiobook should have offered an accompanimental download for referencing the exercises. that alone would have made this a 5 star read. also, i think stallone actually should have narrated this himself. we're familiar with his unique voice and spend most of the listen imagining him reading it anyway. it would have made for a nice personal touch.
These days I enjoy mostly SciFi and Techno Thrillers.
Overall, I enjoyed listening to this book. Sly did good by choosing someone else to narrate this. He touches on the reality of fitness, and offers some good advice. Like most fitness and diet programs, if you've used a few in the past, you'll find yourself picking and choosing what will help you. Comparing it to Bill Phillips talking on the Body For Life program, it's not near as motivating, even leaving you with a little dry feeling. But it will get you solid advice, and it's pretty straight forward. A quick listen at just under three hours. I'll give this book four stars.
This is one of the best tapes I have listened too. it was very entertaining and also gives you some ideas about training and how not to.
I am not a "Sly" fan by any means, but had seen him interviewed numerous times on non cinematic subjects and found him intelligent, driven and amusing. If you want to learn about nutrition, exercise and improving your life, and have an entertaining back story about SS, then this is really a very good book.
This book was 95% mini Biography. I can't say I learned a single thing about working or muscle building from this book. It made me laugh a couple of times, he is an amazing person but it should not be in the Fitness section, not at all.
Yes. This book shows you how he is able to be in great shape in his 50's and 60's. Did you think it's over for you because your a senior? Well, not now!!! You can be stronger, faster and fitter than your 20 and 30 something untrained friends. Just do what this book says.
The personal details of Stallones own experience, along with the great tips on fitness and nutrition.
Actually wish that Stallone had narrated it himself, although Robb did a good job.
It made me realize I don't have to fear age. Time flys....but I'm the pilot.
Get this book, rent the Rocky Movies...and change your life.
It is sad that this book is so motivating for me, but still there are some key ingridience missing.
I was imaginging Silver Stallone reading the book all the time, it would be cool if he had done that.. but the most importand part is missing.. the exersices. Without them this book is a 3 star book, but should be 5 star!
Listen to Sly reminisce -- no info - no recipes as referenced in the book. Pretty worthless
At 414 pounds, I needed help. My health was failing. I worked in some of the finest restaraunts in my area. I can cook. All too well.
But the way I was cooking was killing me.
This book contains enough motivation to get you to hit the ground running! Learn from one of the most physically fit men in Hollywood, the secret about dieting.
You owe it to yourself to get the Right Information and the Right Motivation. I've tried them all. I have an extensive library. I suggest this book to all my friends.
There is another book I'd like to suggest as well. It's called Ultra-Metabolism. I'm using both of them to change the way I even look, or buy food.. the way I will continue to exercise.
If you are fan, I think you will love this book.
If you never saw even one of his films (you need to..haha) This book will inspire you. If you need to loose weight and feel better about yourself, this book may be just what you've been looking for.
As a person who's very interested in health, fitness an wellbeing this audio book was a great listen to affirm to anyone what we already know deep down but often struggle to put into action, sly has achieved an amazing amount in his lifetime and is a role model to many people (including myself) .
Everyone should give this a listen including children, teenagers and adults alike to help the world get healthier, stronger and happier.
