Learn more about The PEATS Program

Hi, I just wanted to thank/compliment you on your e-books, after years of participating in several sports, and being very guilty of chopping and changing training due to reading about "better" methods.

I finally have a system to follow, that suits/is adaptable to me, I am definately more FT dominant, and finally understand how and why I should train in a certain way, I am glad though that I found your book when I did, as having a few years of training behind me has helped my understanding and given me a comparison, I will keep an eye out for a nutrition based publication, I eat a high fat/lo carb diet.
All the best.

Hi Enid,
I am 2/3 of the way through your book Critical Speed and the Physiology of Training. I am finding it absolutely fascinating it is informative, in logical order and well written.

I love the analogy that ‘the book does not contain recipes but the ingredients to create something on your own’. This is a thinking person’s book. After the first reading I plan to read it again and take notes and I am sure it will be read many times.

Congratulations on a great book.

Kind Regards
