About Raymond Burton

Ray Burton Calgary Freelance Writer
While I’ve always put thoughts to paper, I started writing seriously in 2001. That was the year I systemized my fitness training into a written program. After finishing my tour of duty with the Canadian infantry in Bosnia, I started work at Golds Gym as a personal trainer. Shortly thereafter, I realized I was teaching all my personal training clients the same basic information when they were getting started. Realizing this, I put it into a book format and gave each one a copy when I first met with them for a consultation.

Once I wrote the book on getting in shape, I realized I could sell the book to those that couldn’t afford one-on-one personal training. It was only a short jump from there to create a digital e-book and sell it online. You can now get that book on amazon and it’s called Begin At The Gym.

Shortly after that, life threw a monkey wrench at me and I needed something to sink 100% of myself into. I decided to compete in a bodybuilding competition. I competed and won my weight class. I then wrote the book Bodybuilding Competition Preparation: How I Won My Second Bodybuilding Contest.

I continued writing more books on fitness and bodybuilding and you can see the full list of books on Amazon here.

After I covered what I felt was useful to people in fitness, I started to dig deep into the character traits of what made a person healthy, wealthy and wise. I wanted to know what made a person feel “HAPPY AND SUCCESSFUL.”

What I find on being happy, healthy, wealthy and wise, I record here on this blog.

Occasionally, I will write a book when I dig deep enough on a certain topic and discover enough useful information for my readers… if they tell me a single book on the topic would be of use in response to my weekly emails I send out.
