    "My first ever book review."

    1st and foremost congrats on a great book. I loved every chapter. The writer did a great job of covering a lot of different topics with enough detail and its benefits toward your career to give you an idea of where to start building skills. I just finished the book a few minutes ago and felt moved to write a review. I know that I will be listening to this book a few more times through and will be looking for more informational content by the author. Nice job reminding us where to find more. Lol

    Thank you, loved it, I walked away with a lot.

    "Well done"

    What I enjoyed most about this book was the character of the author. Of course people say one thing and do another but a common thread throughout the book was integrity and I like that. Lot of good information- if definitely recommend any trainer, seasoned or new, to invest in this book.

    "Novice or Master... you’ll find something! "

    I wish I had this resource when I was first starting out! Although I’m in my 11th year, I still found this book extremely giving and refreshed many things I had become comfortable with and took for granted.

    "Great book"

    Great book! Very informative on where to start as a personal trainer even if you're seasoned. He makes things simpler. Periodization is hard for the average client. He created the focus system making training clients much more simpler

    "Fitness marketing essential."

    This book gives you a fantastic strategic overview of how to obtain customers, maintain relationships and get them to advocate your fitness brand. I would recommend Ignite the Fire to anyone starting up their own business in the fitness industry, whether that be as a personal trainer, sports clothing company or nutrition brand.
    My only negative criticism would be, in order to make this book more evergreen, the writer does not go into specifics on how to implement digital marketing strategies.
    If you are not a personal trainer (such as a clothing company, wearable tech company, gym instructor/ owner, work in gym marketing or a nutritional brand owner), there a few chapters that will feel they do not apply directly to you, however i recommend staying the course as it will give you good ideas for your website and content marketing.
    The performance by Pete Cataldo overall was good however at many points became laborious with cadence repetition.
