    "Enough already"

    I thought I would love Vinnie's book since I love his appearances on Adam Carolla's show...not so much.
    I get it. He started to sound like a broken record. You're the best trainer and everybody else is terrible. I could only stomach this book for so long.

    Story
    "No nonsense guide to healthy living"

    Vinnie gives his simple formula to losing weight and basic principles about getting in shape. It's real world advice from someone who has gotten results for over 20 years. The reading could have had a little more flavor, but he is a trainer not a pro voice over actor. The audio version does have some extra anecdotes when he strays from the book reeding. These parts were more natural, showing more personality, and a welcome addition to the basic read.

    "Good basic information, GREAT story!"

    This book is fantastic, and after finding out that Vinnie and Dean published this themselves made me like it even more. It is part fitness, a little bit of nutrition, some common sense and a fantastic story (and storyteller!). Fitness and health can really be as simple as no grains, no sugar and moving more - it is no secret. Vinnie really drives that home, there is not some cure-all diet that will magically make you thin and fit - you have to put in the work and you have to be in control of what goes into your body. That is the answer no matter how you dice it.
    Vinnie talks a lot about his personal experiences, and even goes rogue to talk about things that he thinks about as he is reading the book - this is the best part, and the Vinnie-isums. The story is inspiring and motivating. It talks about things being hard and why that is great.
    At the end of it I felt like I had made a friend and really enjoyed the book. Fitness related or not, it was a really fun read.

    Story
    "Hard to listen to"
    Would you try another book from Vinnie Tortorich and/or Vinnie Tortorich?

    While Vinnie admits to having had a speech impediment early in his life, there is little to no sign of that now. What make his reading difficult to listen to is the regional accent and the cadence of the delivery. The stories are peppered with chauvinistic commentary that feels more than a little degrading to the women about whom they are told.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    There is some decent content on diet & exercise.

    Story
    "This isn't a diet book, isn't a celebrity tell all"
    What disappointed you about Fitness Confidential?

    If you listen to Vinnie podcast, this is more of the same. I was expecting more stories about celebrities and more about meal planning. Most of the 7 hours is Vinnie going on about himself. It's just not worth a credit.

    "Funny and informative"

    I wasn't expecting quite the listen that I got. I've listened to a few fitness books and they all go in to great detail about the science of nutrition and exercise. This book doesn't. It does tell you all you need to know, wrapped up in funny and entertaining anecdotes. It's well worth a listen even if you're not into fitness.
