Publisher's Summary

In this collection of short talks, I tried to link together what I thought was crucial and important in the fitness field - and in sports in general - that sometimes don't work very well in something like a book or an article. These are all too long for an article, and too short for a book. But they're all very important principles, and these are all concepts I think need to be linked together.

"Simple" recommendations from movement to flossing

Would you listen to A Lifelong Approach to Fitness again? Why?

Dan John returns simplicity and modesty to training rather than trying to make everything so fancy and difficult. Although overall fitness is not easy, it should be simple.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Lifelong Approach to Fitness?

There is a different overall tone when a student of philosophy teaches fitness which is why I have enjoyed Dan John's books and lectures so much. I find I learn new information and hear great ways to "sell" it to clients.

Which scene was your favorite?

Simple vs Easy explanation

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

The explanation of modest workouts and modest diets to have sustainability with periods of higher intensity to get results a little faster.

Great expansion on previous ideas.

I've read probably everything Dan John has ever written and this was by far the best listen as he expands into the context of his ideas and where you should go with it in beginning to understand the methods. Smart man with an extended knowledge of practical methods that you can immediately implement. Always great Coach.

More Please

All of Dan John's books should be available via Audible. Great information without the testosterone-fueled idiocy of most coaches trying to sell books.

Smart man

Would you listen to A Lifelong Approach to Fitness again? Why?

Yes. Dan John have summarized years worth of experience. He shared a lot. I think that if I listen it again, I would find things that I missed this time.

What did you like best about this story?

His balanced approach.

Dan John at his best

Full of valuable insight that will promote both healthy living and athletic performance. The book is largely conceptual, and will be most beneficial to you if read with a thoughtful approach

Repetitive and incomplete

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. I would recommend Intervention by Dan John.

Would you recommend A Lifelong Approach to Fitness to your friends? Why or why not?

No. It is repetitive and not as complete as Intervention.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I like Dan's style generally - but these are separate recordings. The recordings are not the best quality - some echo - but this can be ignored for good content.

Could you see A Lifelong Approach to Fitness being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

Not Applicable.

Any additional comments?

I really like Dan John's insights on training and diet, and thing that he is worth listening to. If you've never read/listened to Dan John before, you'll get a lot out of this - but you'd be better suited, if you have the time, to go for Intervention. There really wasn't much new in this. Also, in each of the lectures, he mentions the lecture notes, but there is no downloadable content with this Audible book. The description also says about bringing these ideas together - but there was no any part where he tied the ideas together - I think I was expecting a summary section.
