Book Review: Beyond Training by Ben Greenfield
Can something as essential to our wellbeing as fitness be detrimental to our health? Of course it can. The complex machine that is our body has the potential to do amazing things – but our challenge is to unlock this potential without triggering the numerous land mines buried along the way.
“I love getting fit, feeling good about the way my body looks, and fulfilling my deep-seeded drive to live life to the fullest by achieving difficult feats of physical performance. But I was fed up with feeling like crap from all the extreme exercising, strange foods, feeling of constant stress and soreness, and worry about the toll my hectic lifestyle was taking on my body. So I created a way of training, eating and living that is perfectly healthy and natural, but still allows me to look, feel and perform at my peak capabilities. And then I wrote this book to share with you.” – Ben Greenfield
