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

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!

The Bible

This book covers all sorts of fitness avenues and gives you enough insight to spark interest in new fitness programs and mentality. Ross also provides further explanations through his website which can be used as a learning tool. Over all the book very insightful and easy to follow.

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.
