On Monday, December 10, Greg’s publisher informed him the book had sold over five-hundred copies, with readers across the Country and with International sales to Italy, Australia, Canada, Spain and New Zealand. Below is an expert from a recent review of Greg’s book.

“Where the book becomes priceless is what it can deliver to the female reader. As a CrossFitter who coaches and trains with her husband, the book provided a view into the mind of the male athlete. And while one should never try to change their spouse, you CAN change the way you react to their actions – made easier if you understand where they are coming from in the first place. The unique view into the male CrossFitter mind was fascinating. Especially in a sport that is heavy with husband and wife partnerships. It also reminds us of how important it is to reconnect as husband and wife when we leave the Box. We are not brother and sister or `just one of the guys’ at home, although many CrossFit couples fall into that trap. This book really tunes into the fact that we must appreciate each other for the intricacies that make up the opposite sex. His grasp on what the female athlete may be yearning for at home is valuable for both parties to read and discuss. More importantly, Greg’s book showcases the fact that strong people need to appreciate those we love strongly. And that if we are passionate in other areas of our lives, we need to show our spouse that same level of passion for the success of the marriage. Written in a conversational style, this book in an engaging read for anyone! I enjoyed it tremendously.”  –  Nicole Smith – CrossFit SoMO
