Get Six Free and 99 Cent Endurance Training Books from Ben Greenfield!


Great news! I’ve decided to offer SIX books from me and other Endurance Planet authors for .99 cents or free, for the next 6 weeks only.

So what’s Endurance Planet?

Hosted by coach and fitness guru Tawnee Prazak, Endurance Planet is one of the top outdoor sports podcasts in iTunes, and features interviews with coaches and athletes in the world of ultra running, marathoning, cycling, swimming, triathlon, adventure racing, and mountaineering.

Endurance Planet has been producing 3-5 podcasts a week since 2006 (meaning there’s an enormous amount of awesome training, racing and coaching advice in the archives), and in 2011, I personally took over as owner of Endurance Planet. At that point, we began publishing books too.

Each of those books is now available to you as a free or 99 cent download for the next six weeks only. Consider it a perk for being a reader of my content, and if you feel giant-hearted, please leave a glowing review after you get a chance to check each book out.

Alright, ready? Just add these dates to your calendar and go download away! Here are the details for each book (and as a bonus, every book below includes a free video and a 10-30 minute audio overview read by each author).


Week 1) 1/27 thru 1/31 FREE book: Endurance Sports for Kids: A Guide To Getting Your Kids Into Triathlon, Cycling, Swimming And More!


The miracle of a quiet, under-confident kid that discovers his/her inner strength through accomplishments in sports, and their stories are both moving and inspirational.

There is something about finishing a race and giving it your all that lifts you up for a lifetime.

There is something unique and family-like about being part of a team. And there is something about all kids having more adults who care about them.

But it must be done right. Kids need to be introduced to sports with immense care and proper instruction. Parents or coaches who do this wrong will ensure that the kid-athletes will burn out and leave their sports during adolescence or earlier, perhaps never to return. But done right everyone will enjoy becoming healthier and grow from the experience.

Inside, you will discover:

-Why endurance sports for kids are important
-Ways to lead kids into endurance sports safely and patiently
-How endurance sports form lifelong active habits
-How they give kids a sense of identity
-How endurance sports for kids can strengthen families
