This is the long-awaited reprint of the highly-acclaimed book ‘Be Fit! Or Be Damned!’ by Percy Cerutty, world renowned coach to Australia’s greatest athlete, Herb Elliott, whom he trained to win the gold medal in the 1500 metres at the Rome Olympics in 1960 by a margin that has never been equalled.
First published in 1967, this book encapsulates Percy Cerutty’s philosophies of living healthily to a ripe old age, being vital and fit and enjoying every minute of being alive. Cerutty outlines his practical ideas for achieving and enjoying a long healthy life. He was a revolutionary in many ways and a man dedicated to his task of improving the science of athletics and translating that knowledge beyond the champion athletes he trained to the average person whose aim is to be fit, active and healthy throughout life.
For the first time since 1967, readers now have a chance to learn and apply the lessons from one of the greatest athletic coaches Australia has ever produced.
