It’s summer and whether you have achieved your summer body or you’re still working towards it, you could benefit from some our picks for 2017 Fitness Books to Read this Summer.
Now, we know there is no such thing as one fitness plan or diet for everyone. Every person is different and with different body types and metabolisms comes a diverse selection of fitness needs.
There are those (like myself) who want to burn off some excess fat, some who are looking for the perfect body, and still others who only really care about being healthy. Whatever our reasons, we have all fell prey at some time or the other to fad diets or insane fitness routines. However, we all know that a health and nutrition routine that works for us is the best option. But how do you find the right path for you?
With so many fitness books on the market, it might be tough to nail down what is right for you. That’s why we decided to put together a 2017 Fitness Books list to help people find the perfect fitness for them.
Here are our picks for the 2017 Fitness Books To Read This Summer:
BECOMING A SUPPLE LEOPARD
by Dr. Kelly Starrett
While this is a non-traditional take on a fitness book, Dr. Starrett can help take your fitness to the next level. As a doctor, he has the ability to explain the science of movement and mobility in a way that anyone can follow. In the reviews, people state that they have increased their mobility and overall well being in just days using Dr. Starrett’s methods.
BODY FOR LIFE

Written by New York Times best-selling author, magazine publisher, documentary filmmaker, entrepreneur, inventor, self-made multimillionaire, and motivator, Bill Phillip, this book became the best-selling fitness book of all time. The reasons are obvious as the book includes easy to follow action plans that will help you change your body and your life.
ENCYCLOPEDIA OF MODERN BODYBUILDING
by Arnold Schwarzenegger
This book is considered to be one of the most iconic fitness books ever written. Written by a legendary bodybuilder, this book includes everything from the function of specific muscles to the training programs that target them. If you don’t own this book, buy it, read it, and reference it often.
ENGINEERING THE ALPHA
by John Romaniello and Adam Bornstein
This book is different from most fitness books. What you’ll learn will not only help you lose weight and get that ripped look you want, but it will also help you refocus your life goals. Many people have walked away from reading this book and said it changed their lives completely. Why not give it a try?
ENTER THE KETTLEBELL
by Pavel Tsatsouline
Pavel Tsatsouline is given credit for causing the kettlebell craze we still see today. However, this is just the start. Pavel is a superstar in the fitness community and his book is all about taking your #beastmode to a new level. If you’re looking to unlock your inner beast, give this book a read.
NEVER LET GO
by Dan John
Do the intricacies of strength training sometimes confuse you? Dan John has a way of explaining what others find confusing. This book is not only easy to understand, but simple to put into action. Combine this with general life advice and you should be on your way to the strength you desire.
THE NEW RULES OF LIFTING
by Lou Schuler and Alwyn Cosgrove
I love this book. While there are many reasons, the biggest is that it explains away so many fitness myths. It helps you clean the slate and start fresh with what is right and wrong about fitness. Once you have a fresh start, the authors help you build a solid fitness foundation that’s backed by science.
by Mark Rippetoe
Let’s call this a traditional approach to strength training. Rippetoe wants you to stop “playing” with all the fancy gym equipment and keep things simple with barbells and hand weights. But this isn’t just one man forcing his opinion on the world, this book uses science to explain how to train, move, and put yourself on a path that will give you a lifetime of success.
STRENGTH TRAINING ANATOMY
by Frederic Delaviar
This book is perfect for a person who is at an intermediate fitness level. You might have what works for you down, but you are at a point where you start to plateau. Now you need to start to understand your body more so you can focus on how to get to the next level. Using science and a career of understanding, Delaviar can help you regain focus and better understand the inner you.
WHICH COMES FIRST, CARDIO OR WEIGHTS?
by Alex Hutchinson
It’s the chicken or the egg situation all over again. I think we have all been there at one point or the other. Do I start with cardio or do I start with strength training? Alex Hutchinson to the rescue! Alex explains the science behind the divide and puts you on a path to get the physique you’ve dreamed about.
