This book contains a huge wealth of information, with even more detailed resources on Bens website. I've studied this field for some years, and I can honestly say most of the information and advice here seems pretty accurate and up to date. There may be parts you disagree with, as I did, but even then, there's many opportunities to research further. There's probably to much advice to implement in your own life, but there's enough to change your habits and your health for the better even if you implemented just 10% of the advice.
Overall I found this informative, interesting, inspiring and motivational. My best purchase for some time.
Got fed up of him promoting his website and his incessant use if the phrase "bio-hack" had me feeling nauseous.
I'm sure there are some useful tips and tricks but I couldn't be bothered to sift through the magic beans and snake oil to find them.
A comprehensive look in to exercise and life physiology, delves in to areas not commonly covered by other training guides. I've definitely changed my approach to life since reading this, and at 49 years old I'm now looking forward to a faster, fitter, happier, less stressed second half century. The almost conversational narration (by the author) adds belief to the authenticity of the content - Excellent
This is, without a doubt the best book on training I have ever listened to (or read) Greenfield breaks the science of optimised performance down into practical implementable terms and frames them with his own perspective on longevity and quality of life. I can't recommend this book enough
"Could not be more thorough! "
This has to be the most complete health and fitness book ever written. Great stuff but can be a bit overwhelming. It should probably be approached as a reference book. Listening straight through gives you the impression that you could never do all these things. Just too many fixes that sound like snakeoil.
"packed with information"
I would read this several times over due to the density of information. The online resources go far to synthesise the concepts into a shorter simpler form.
"Not worth the time"
Ben puts in a big effort. but this book gives ideas that the common person isn't going to try because we don't have disposable income for gadgets that might or might not work. Ben simply is marketing an industry and tries to push the reader into buying ideas and products to build an industry. Pass on the book. all info is available free on Web youtube. he is just pushing his products too. He is trying to copy others Dave Asbrey Bulletproof by trying to create a market and capitalize on it. These guys are trying to sell stuff.
"Beyond training book is overflowing with amazing information"
Ben Greenfield hit the nail on the head with his book Beyond Training. If you're an athlete / coach or both this book is a must read. What you can expect to fine is a completed road map to amazing life, love, athletic, human body, time sucks, nutritional and many more amazing fact and hacks that apply to every day life you'll learn how to train smarter not harder the Ben Greenfield way.

"An all out assault on stupidity"
if you are familiar with Ben Greenfield you know you already know you that you won't be suffer from endless clichés. Ben tends to just get to point right away in his podcasts. He is fairly succinct considering the subjects he tackles; considering how long this audiobook is, you would think that there would be a lot of backstory or setup. Nope it's just hours of essential info. Don't space out or you'll miss a revolutionary idea and will be sorry.
I am an over the hill desk pilot who wants to get back in shape enough to XBOX Kinnect vs hand controller (kidding); I now way more than I ever wanted to about health and fitness. If you really want your brain to "bulk up" on usable, bs-free training knowledge, there is an education waiting for you inside Beyond Training.
"Great Primer on Nutrition, Exercise, & Lifestyle"
I have read over 200 books on the subjects of diet, exercise, and healthy living. This is an excellent overall primer for anyone interested in these subjects. This is a LONG audio book, but I never found any part uninteresting. I am a newly minted Ben Greenfield fan as he is not "evangelical" about any of his advice and it all has an air of "common sense" both in content and the delivery. The fact that he is also the narrator really helps make this long listen much more palatable as his delivery is very conversational. I recommend this book to both the Newby and experienced diet, exercise, healthy living enthusiast.
"One of a kind!"
Ben is a mastermind when it comes to training, health, mind and body. Anyone who enjoys exercise and ideally wants to remain healthy should buy this book. He is a genius!
"The book I have been looking for for the past year!"
After a year of listening to many different Podcasts daily this book has summed up about 90% of what I have learned about health and fitness. I really enjoyed having the author narrate it also!
"Extreme Fitness by Working Out Smarter, Not Harder"
Balanced, scientific approach to workouts, nutrition, recovery, sleep, and lifestyle. This book literally changed the way I approached fitness. Solid, actionable information.
Reclaim your fitness without giving up your life.
"A true disappointment"
I am so regretting having wasted my point
The constant reference to website for more information.
I can't think of anything, I am totally shocked and I like Ben Greenfield but after think will think twice.
all the referencing got to be very very annoying
I think we should have at least a 24 hr or even an 8hr return policy cause all it took for me was one chapter and I would have dropped it all.
