Good contents and the narrator nailed it.

Would be only half as good if Vinnie didn't narrate. It has it all, learning, comedy, & drama.

Opened my eyes

Would you listen to Fitness Confidential again? Why?

Yes. I have sent this book to many people... I say that NO its not a typical book, But I have read up/watched so many things about weightloss/fitness, and I feel like he gave me alot more new information and has given me the boost I need to get going again. I am hooked on the podcast now. Vinnie has a ton of good information, and seems to sort thru some of the tons of bullshit out thier. I love that. There are a couple parts I was not really into, but I definitely say stick with it, finish the book. You will get a lot out of it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fitness Confidential?

I love when he talks about people and himself overcoming severe challenges

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Keep it up Vinnie!

Must Read or Listen

I have been listening to Vinnie Tortorich on podcasts for a couple of years now and contemplated getting the book. I finally pulled the trigger when I decided I needed a plan to "cut the crap" out of my diet & life. The audio book was great with all of Vinnie's stories and digressions (as he calls them). His truly inspiring and motivational story of personal triumph through all of life's obstacles, matched with his kind personality and great sense of humor shine through in the audio book. I would suggest that everyone read this book or get the audio book and listen with an open mind. #NSNG

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.

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.
