Lacking the spirit of exercise
Greenfield clearly states his objective: to teach you how to make money with the intent of acquiring wealth, not to teach you to become a better trainer possessing useful knowledge to help others. In most civilized societies money plays a large role in defining the success of an individual. The pursuit of money, the acquisition of wealth, and monetary gain is a great individual undertaking of the protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism that extends throughout history. However, making money for the sake of making more money is forever a renewed profit which creates more desires than it can satisfy and can contribute to a human being's misery. A person of high character generally dismisses the life of money-making since it does not play a role in making him a better human being. The goal of making money is only useful for the sake of more external goods, which causes a person's happiness to become erratic and causes great changes in a person's soul keeping him from becoming stable or happy. These are some of the reasons why the goal of making money does not consist in happiness.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

If Greenfield claims to have a master's degree in sports science and exercise physiology, but his intention is to help you make money, then he disqualifies himself on two accounts: (1) he dismisses his own education, and therefore, excludes himself from being a credible ambassador on fitness, nutrition, and training, and (2) he regresses the quality of training by the trainer for the sake of making money. Character, education, experience, and enthusiasm make a successful trainer and human being, not advertising strategies and technological know-how to maximize income. Clients who claim that they have become "more educated" by Greenfield, even claiming they have gotten great results, can only boast what Greenfield fails to impart: the spirit of exercise. Do not waste your precious dollars on this ego-inflated book.
