Inhaltsangabe

CrossFit trainer Ben Bergeron has helped build the world's fittest athletes, but he's not like other coaches. He believes that greatness is not for the elite few; that winning is a result, not a goal; and that character, not talent, is what makes a true champion. His powerful philosophy can help anyone excel at all aspects of life.

Using the dramatic competition between the top contenders at the 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games® as a background, Ben explores the step-by-step process of achieving excellence and the unique set of positive character traits necessary for leveling up to world-class. The mindset and methodology that have produced some of the greatest athletes in the world's most grueling sport can work equally well for golfers, lawyers, artists, entrepreneurs - anyone who's willing to commit totally to becoming better than the best.

By Chasing Excellence, you'll discover how extraordinary it's possible for you to be.

Somewhere in the middle

For the most part, this book gives an overview of well-established mental techniques combined with a few training ideas and concepts. Nothing new, certainly nothing groundbreaking, but not bad either.

It also offers some interesting insights into the upper echelon of crossfit. On the downside, there’s quite a bit of overgeneralisation, oversimplification, and many somewhat questionable comparisons with other sports, which to me frequently felt like a desperate attempt to glorify one’s own sport. In the end, it feels like way too many words for two little meaning.

All in all not a bad book, but not a good one either. There are certainly much better works on the subject.

Amazing book!!!

It was a great thing listening to the coach of the most fascinating athletes on the scene! For me as an athlete it was extremely motivating hearing about the habits and story behind of the games! And to realize once again that the games are just a glimpse of what the athletes are capable of and how important the mental game is! It was great to listen to Ben & I would love to hear another book of him once again :)

Useful and inspirational

A deep-dive into Bergeron's mind and coaching methods, wrapped up in a behind-the-scenes look at the 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games and its star athletes. Super engaging for an amateur but ambitious CrossFit competitor and new coach!
