A must read or listen to!

I have just only started to dive in.., I am two chapters in and the information, prospective, and experiences shared have already opened my eyes to the hamster I have been running on for the past ten years of being in the industry.

Although I have made improvements in my approach and interactions with clients..., I know this book is going to take me to the next level and allow me to help so many people on my terms, following my true values and living the life that suits me, my family and my goals.

Thank you so much for taking the time to create this for the industry, I know it will impact and change many lives.

Enjoyed this very much

I am a personal trainer and nutritionist in Israel and I found this books an eye opener. We learn a lot of educational training factors however what’s missing is exactly as John wrote, our expectation and understanding of our clients, as well as almost forcing them to achieve our goals not theirs.

The second thing missing for us is the marketing of our services to be able to earn a respectable living instead of just working shifts in the gym or studio.

Thank you for your book and all the downloadable information and resources.

Very Insightful with full plans

I was able to get confirmation on my current processes and insight for the future of my business. I now have more information and the downloadable forms were awesome to print and fill out. This is a worth while book for sure! Every fitness trainer, coach, business owner should have this in their library.

A must hear/read for any fitness professional

Just finished it and starting again + ordering paper version. That good IMO. In this book you will have all what is missing in other fitness/health related book.

Btw, best speaking performance till now by dr. Berardi from what I heard/saw from him till now and one of the best Audible performances narrated by authors.
