A must read or listen to!

I have just only started to dive in.., I am two chapters in and the information, prospective, and experiences shared have already opened my eyes to the hamster I have been running on for the past ten years of being in the industry.

Although I have made improvements in my approach and interactions with clients..., I know this book is going to take me to the next level and allow me to help so many people on my terms, following my true values and living the life that suits me, my family and my goals.

Thank you so much for taking the time to create this for the industry, I know it will impact and change many lives.

A must hear/read for any fitness professional

Just finished it and starting again + ordering paper version. That good IMO. In this book you will have all what is missing in other fitness/health related book.

Btw, best speaking performance till now by dr. Berardi from what I heard/saw from him till now and one of the best Audible performances narrated by authors.

For every health coach!

After certifying as a coach with PN, I just had to take a listen to this book. It's helped me gain clarity with my online health coaching business and would say it's a necessary read for all health coaches wanted to make real change in the lives of their clients.

So much great information!

Coming at this from the perspective of someone who works in fitness and nutrition, I found this book enormously useful. There was information in every chapter that I could use and start implementing right away. I will be listening to this multiple times!

Informative, helpful, incredible to listen to.

As I’m writing this, I have finished listening to Change Maker 3 separate times. Each time taking away new ideas and action steps. I have not done the precision nutrition training, but this book has confirmed my wanting to continue learning from Dr. Berardi and his team. As a recent grad with degrees in both biochemistry and nutrition, I have my sights set on becoming a Registered Dietitian. I have already seen a lot of out-dated information and no real guidance on working with individuals to help reach their goals. I have sought out resources to help and this book is helping me with just that. The Narration is entertaining, allowing me to listen intently whether I’m driving, walking, or working out. Absolutely recommend this to not only those looking to coach or grow a business, but those also looking for personal development as well! Great job!

More practical than my formal education

This book is the ultimate resource for anyone like me who has decided to switch careers and move into the Health and fitness field. It lays out very practical information and backs it up with immediately applicable tools.

A really great book.

This was a great book. It's laid out in a logical format and progresses at a steady pace. John starts out by giving you some highlights about what he is going to get into. Then he dives into each one in a methodical and clear way giving facts and stories reinforcing the data and oftentimes uses stories from his own life and career. John then follows up with a summary of each topic at the end of the book with some more context and how they each connect. There are also free charts, forms, and questioners you get access to when you buy the book and they are awesome.

It is, however, a pretty deep dive into each topic, and not light reading. If you try and answer the questions he asks about yourself there's going to be a lot of internal back and forth but there is still plenty of value if you're not the journaling type. Sometimes I had to stop and think about what he was saying and let it sink in, which is when I grabbed my highlighter. If you're the kind of reader that really wants to chew on the subject matter like a steak and give it some thought, I'd recommend the paperback edition of the book. If you are used to audiobooks and don't mind listening to it once or twice I highly recommend the audiobook because John reads the book himself and I think you get a little more context from his voice then the pages. I really enjoyed listening to him.

If you're interested in the Precision Nutrition Level 1 certification, and still on the fence, I would highly recommend this book. I am working my way through the certification now, and a lot of the coaching mindset comes out in this book and a lot of the Precision Nutrition principles are baked into this book. I would also highly recommend the certification for those on the fence.

Must purchase for all service based professionals

I loved this book and all of the great words of wisdom. Not only does John provide great information he lays it out into easy to use steps or actions. Within the first day of reading and applying this knowledge my customers were more receptive and began to improve immediately. This is a must read for trainers, consultants, coaches or hell anybody that provides a service or product!
