Publisher's Summary

The Sunday Times best seller.

How to train for anything and everything, anywhere and everywhere.

The World's Fittest Book is set to become every fitness enthusiast's bible. Dubbed the body's complete user guide, it will become the go-to resource for learning all you need to know about building muscle, losing fat, eating (healthy) cake and unlocking your superhuman physical potential. 

Packed with workouts the author tried and tested in the pursuit of multiple world records, it's more than a book, it's the greatest training tool ever written! Designed for anyone who wants to make permanent and lasting changes to their food and fitness, it's the first book to combine the teachings, tips and tricks of Olympic and world champions into one easy to follow resource.

This book will show you how it's possible to:

  • Live below 10 percent body fat with the aid of chocolate and Mayan secrets
  • Add 27 percent more muscle mass, courtesy of tips from world heavyweight champions
  • Increase speed by 10 percent, thanks to gold medal winning Olympic sprinters
  • Squat, deadlift and bench weights you never dreamed of lifting, with the guidance of the world's strongest men
  • Improve endurance capacity by 60 percent, thanks to the knowledge of world champions in multi endurance-based sports

...all of which the author has achieved during the 10-year 'fitness pilgrimage' that has taken him around the globe. 

Aiming to be the most eclectic and comprehensive fitness guide ever created, The World's Fittest Book is the sum and substance of over a decade of research and the collective wisdom of some of the greatest minds and athletic bodies in history. By learning the lessons within it, listeners will understand 'fitness' better than the vast majority of the population. Every chapter has an easy to digest workout within it and can be listened to individually. But if you want to listen to the stories and the science behind the routines, that's there, too. 

Until now, there hasn't been a book covering such an ambitious range of areas, catering for the casual fitness enthusiast seeking clarity and guidance in their own gym routine and kitchen habits as well as the seasoned sportsperson who's hit a plateau and is searching for tips, tricks and tweaks they can make to their training and diet. This book changes that and will take you on a journey to whatever level of fitness you want to find.

Informative and motivating at the same time

This book is worth it for the pdf alone that’s super informative and gives full workouts meal plans charts graphs etc. Ross does a great job condensing a decade of fitness adventure and research into a book that really touches on all the essentials for anyone interested in that sort of thing. Whether you are starting off trying to find what you’d like to do when you “train” or are experienced this book is worth the read

Crazy amount of knowledge

1. It’s great when the author reads him/herself so that’s a plus for me.
2. The stories of Ross’ own experience through this journey of writing this book are very insightful & vivid.
3. Something you can read more than once & keep finding more information about the body, food, & physical as much as mental activities.

Edgley Nation

I’ve been listening to Ross Edgley speak and watching him do these things that seem impossible but through principle he achieves anything he puts his mind to. This book is beautifully illustrated and insightful, so I would suggest buying a copy. The best part, though, is that it’s narrated with his voice. Quite honestly, the best part!

Just when you thought it couldn't get better

I've read through the paper version twice now and each time it just fills me full of more and more knowledge. Now its in an audio version it means i can take Ross in the shower with me too, everyones a winner. 100% a must read for anyone wanting to have a better understanding on how to take hold of your own personal fitness, diet and mental health.

Fantastic

Made me think about fitness and nutrition in a completely different way and dispelled several 'fitness fairytales' I always thought were complete rubbish.

Without a doubt THE best book I’ve ever listened to!

Being a personal trainer I was really interested to see what this book was all about. It didn’t disappoint.

So much in the fitness industry now is contradictory, egocentric and individuals battling to prove they or their methods and programs are the best. This is different, this explains principles, gives examples of methods then encourages you to develop what works for you.

Not only is this book super interesting and informative, but it’s also inspirational and encourages you to be innovative and find a solution that works for you.

After listening to this audiobook it’s made me totally re-evaluate how I want to work with people in the future and I’ll be listening to it again straight away taking more notes and totally redesigning my services.

For anyone looking to improve their health and fitness or anyone with an interest in it in general this book is a must!
