30 Dec The 5 Best Fitness Books Of The Year (2017 Edition)

(#233) Here’s my 6th annual post that I do each year as I reflect back on the best “fitness” books I’ve read during the last 12 months.

My criteria for this year's list is as follows:
  • Books that were released sometime during 2017
  • Books I have in my own personal library
  • Books I have read (or have read enough of to make an impact)
  • Books that have important ideas or concepts to put into practice
Now, my definition of fitness books is pretty unconventional compared to most and my list has evolved quite a bit since the first one back in 2012.

Once again, this is my 6th annual “best of” list.

As usual, coming up with only 5 books was extremely challenging.

As in previous years, I’ll have a few others that are “honorable mentions” and I’ll explain them below.

Here's my video review summarizing all of these great books:
