The inside scoop

Mat has been known to be a very private person when it came to his methods and how he handled his training. This is a great read for behind the scenes info and tips from the champion himself. He stepped out of the arena at the perfect time and his legacy is yet to be surpassed. I highly recommend this book for all weekend warriors and aspiring Games athletes.

Disappointing that May Fraser can’t read out his own book

Would have been a lot more interesting and genuine if Mat Fraser read out his own book on how Hard Work Pays Off.

A bit meh

It’s okay for a podcast. Some high level detail about Matt’s history. I found a recent Joe Rogan/Matt Fraser pod more detailed and interesting. I’m glad I got this as part of my free credits. Would hate to pay full price for this.
