There are millions of health and fitness books available on Amazon and book stores around the world. The sheer number of them and the different messages within the pages of those books can make it difficult to decide what is good information and what is bad information.
We have spent most of our careers helping sort good information from bad information and wanted to make your educational journey a bit easier. So here is a curated list of health and fitness books that you can use as the cornerstone of your education.
We have broken the list down into general books for people who are new to health and fitness and more advanced, in-depth books for the more seasoned individual.
General Fitness and Nutrition
- Muscle & Strength Pyramids
- A Guide To Flexible Dieting
- Bigger Leaner Stronger
- Strong and Sculpted
- The M.A.X. Muscle Plan
The books listed above will provide a very solid foundation that you can use to change the course of your life. But, we also know that people love to take the basics and build on them so we wanted to provide some more “in-depth” looks at health, fitness, and nutrition.
For those looking to expand their knowledge base beyond the basics, the following are recommended.
