5k and 10k: From Start to Finish

Following the success of “The Marathon and Half Marathon: A Training Guide” Graeme was approached by world famous publishing house Bloomsbury (think Harry Potter), to write a book on how to train for 5k and 10k events.

Beautifully designed and packed with cutting edge information on how to take non-runners from their first intrepid steps to their last, the book attracted Cancer Research’s “Race for Life” to team up with Bloomsbury and work together for the benefit of their runners.

With 10p from every copy going to Cancer Research “5K and 10k: From Start to Finish” is an engaging and highly informative book that every new runner should own to help them learn the basics of running but above all - how to enjoy it!

Following the popularity of the book in the UK, “5k and 10k: From Start to Finish” has attracted the interest of several international publishing houses.

To date, the foreign rights have been purchased by Denmark and Poland, with the book translated into their respective languages.

Update: Bloomsbury have recently confirmed that the foreign rights have just been sold to China. The translated version will be available in 2017

Available as a paperback or as an ebook.

Trail Running: From Start to Finish

Following the success and popularity of “5k and 10k: From Start to Finish,” Bloomsbury asked Graeme to write another book for them covering the growing running discipline Trail Running.

The Popularity of Trail Running has sky rocketed in recent years, as runners are attracted to the lure of fresh air and the open Countryside. With far less emphasis and pressure on the need to run fast, the ethos of Trail Running is to embrace your surroundings and explore spectacular trails. The views runners experience when hitting the trails in the UK or abroad, makes many wonder why they didn’t take up trail running sooner.

"Trail Running: From Start to Finish" is packed with information, covering everything runners need to know on how to make the transition form the road to the trails. With beautiful imagery and a wide range of topics such as nutrition, conditioning, navigation and injury prevention, it’s no wonder legendary Trail and ultra running champion Scott Jurek put his name on the book.

As well as strong sales in the UK, the foreign rights have also been sold to Italy, with the Italian version of the book due out in 2016. Available as a paper back or e-book.

From Flab to Fab

Rebranded from - “Is it just me or are sit-ups a waste of time?” “From Flab to Fab” was Graeme’s first book away from the subject of running.

Drawing on his wealth of knowledge of exercise physiology and nutrition, as well as his vast experience as a Personal Trainer, “From Flab to Fab’ helps to debunk the many myths people hold about diet and fitness.

Questions such as “ Will sit-ups give me a flat stomach”, “Does beer actually give you a beer belly?” and “Are carbs actually as fattening as some people say they are?” are all answered in this short, sharp and lighthearted read.

With extracts printed in national newspapers such as The Daily Mail and The Independent, “From Flab to Fab” drew a lot of media attention.

Invited onto dozens of radio shows to talk about the book and do live phone-in’s, Graeme and his book have helped to bust a plethora of common fitness and diet misconceptions.

Available as a paperback, and e-book and an audiobook.
