I finished the book about 3 or 4 weeks after I got it. After seeing over 30 reviews and all of them 5 star, I was really excited about the book. When I got it and started reading, my enthusiasm steadily diminished as I read through and realized this book was a big collection of information that is rather generic in nature. I've been training for a few years and was hoping to find some great info to take things to the next level. I have to say that the business guidance that was covered with the training certification that I got was more comprehensive and actionable. The author clearly has enthusiasm and the book would likely be beneficial to newcomers to the training industry. Beyond that, I wouldn't recommend it.
I did notice a handful of typos throughout the book. Something I have occasionally seen on his website and other articles as well. Not a huge deal at all, but definitely slows the flow of the writing and acts as an annoyance in a book that otherwise is smooth and enjoyable.
I also thought there was unnecessary redundancy book describes his block scheduling system and his focus system in two different sections. I didn't think it was necessary to describe twice in such detail. But this does not really detract from the overall message of the book.
Overall, this book is a wellspring of excellent information, and really does, as the title suggests "ignite the fire" within to succeed as a personal trainer. I would recommend it anyone looking to pursue a career in personal training.
