Top 5 Books for Fitness Professionals

By 5th March 2015 No Comments

The celebration of World Book Day is primarily for children to celebrate great literature, from Roald Dahl to JK Rowling. But with this being the 18th year of the national event, we thought we’d take it upon ourselves to celebrate the great books for fitness professionals.

Obviously there are many great reads and we could be here all day discussing them, so to save time, we have whittled it down to our top 5 that will help boost your mood, your client knowledge and most importantly your business!



The News Rules of Lifting for Women

Cassandra Forsythe M.S.

This book is recommended on many fitness professional forums. Always a good sign! A well-written, thoroughly researched book with a light tone and a nice easy going style, which makes it a pleasure to read. It also smashes through the myths of female weight training, providing you with a better insight to pass onto your female clients.




The Ultimate Sales Machine

Chet Holmes

The title can make you quite sceptical. But Chet is a Genius – no questions asked. There are many books on the shelves that discuss increasing sales, but none packs a better punch than this. The Ultimate Sales Machine provides many marketing strategies that will help make your fitness business blossom.




Never Let Go

Dan John

One of the highest rated fitness books by one of the most respected men in the industry. Dan’s style of writing is humourous but at the same time very informative. Never Let Go is such an inspiring read full of wisdom and knowledge – a definite must for any serious fitness professional.




48 Laws of Power

Robert Greene

The best book on our list for the power hungry (that being most of us!) These laws are not only a great guideline for trainers; they’re great for business professionals too! Twisted, ironic and clever, this is an indispensable and witty guide to power.




Stumbling on Happiness

Dan Gilbert

A Book based around psychology, Stumbling on Happiness is intelligent and fascinating. If you do manage to learn and internalise its message, then at the very least you won’t over order next time you go for a Chinese meal and you may even avoid some terrible decisions about what you imagine will make you happy in future.
