Soul of a lifter is not a weight lifting book but fitness is a star character in the book.Â Â I started writing the book as a technical fitness book but it sounded boring so I changed it to a non-fiction novel, a different kind of motivational book with several themes.Â Â Soul of a Lifter is unlike any book youâ€™ve ever read. The writing style, the chapter sequence, and the messages are conveyed in a unique style that challenges the reader. The book explores the confluence of real events that connected real people from my careers. Soul of a Lifter explains lessons learned in policing, coaching football, college teaching, business, and working out. The focus is on the psychology and philosophy of performance â€“what makes us do what we do.
My workout philosophy is explained but Soul of a Lifter is not just about physical lifting. Lifting weight is just one of the main characters, a common thread that linked people and influenced outcome. But the book is not about working out.
