Fitness Business Expert Brian Cannone Hits Amazon Best Seller List With “Champions”

Brian Cannone, fitness business expert, recently hit two separate Amazon.com best-seller lists with the new book “Champions.”

Brian Cannone recently joined with a select group of America’s experts to co-write the book titled, Champions: Knockout Strategies For Health, Wealth and Success.

Champions was released on Thursday, January 26th, 2012 and features top advice from some of the most successful experts from around the world. These authors share business strategies and real-life solutions that guide the reader down the championship lane of success. Each author shares strategies that promote success in business and life. Brian Cannone contributed a chapter titled “Franchising Your Fitness Business.”

On the day of release, Champions: Knockout Strategies For Health, Wealth and Success From Today’s Leading Experts reached best-seller status in two Amazon.com categories – reaching as high as #2 in the Direct Marketing category. The book also reached best-seller status in the Entrepreneurship category.

Brian Cannone began his full-time career in the fitness industry in 1991 and continues to manage health clubs in Connecticut today. His experience in this business has lead him to run many successful health clubs and his responsibilities include setting up new facilities, building and managing a staff, daily membership sales, and club marketing and promotion. He has also lead many successful personal training companies on the same business methods.

Champions are ultimate winners. It is not a shared position. There are no two first places in a race. However, in business, we have a broader sense of championship. There are many races to run, many titles to earn, and many causes to champion. So there are many Champions.

Reaching the pinnacle and staying there in business is very difficult in a highly competitive setting. This rivalry drives competitors to perform their best to achieve their ultimate goals. In fact, it could readily be said that competition drives champions.

In this book, this group focuses on success in business and personal achievement. We also learn from them that while economic predominance is important, the journey to get there is equally so. They revel in becoming the best. They revel in achieving goals that no one has before.

After such a successful release, Brian Cannone will be recognized by The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors™, an organization that honors authors from many of the leading independent best-seller lists.
