Publisher's Summary

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.

Chasing Excellence Hits the Mark

Chasing Excellence is, well, excellent. Ben outlines the not-so-secret road to success, and explains how a true champion is forged from within. I am especially grateful that Ben himself narrated his book. It made it so much more relatable and personal, and I felt like I gleaned more from his intonations than simply reading words on a page. That being said, reading this book in hard copy form would still have been incredible. Thank you for this book and making it available in audio form for a busy mom, wife, CrossFit athlete, and aspiring coach to listen to on the go. A must read for those who are out there working hard and chasing excellence.

Only half way through, but loving it so far!

Using a wide variety of examples helps the reader relate back to their life. Taking the reader through events of the 16 games puts a nice twist on things too. But then again as an aspiring crossfit athlete I was always going to like that!

Keep up the good work!

Plants a seed in your mind

Excellent message and presents simple to understand and follow, actionable messages. Perhaps focuses a bit too much on Katrin Davidsdottir, but understandable to an extent as she lives with Ben Bergeron and is the closest athlete to him. Would perhaps have liked to hear more about Cole as an athlete who is progressing and working hard to be the best he can, also with the mindset, but is yet to achieve podium success. Maybe a take on the mindset from someone in his position. But all in all, the intention of the book is successfully executed.
