Sink or Swing: Working Out When Life Isn't Working Out by Chad V. Holtkamp

indie ebook cover

"Sink or Swing – Working Out When Life Isn't Working Out," from author Chad V. Holtkamp, is a detailed account of balancing life, personal challenges, diets and staying in shape.

It follows up his bestselling debut release, "Work Out, Pig Out," and is a month-by-month retelling of his fitness and dieting regimens and how they fit in with the everyday life of a busy professional.

As chronicled in the hilarious "Work Out, Pig Out – A Year of Losing Fat, Gaining Muscle, and Eating Lots of Ice Cream," Chad V. Holtkamp tried nearly a dozen workout plans throughout 2014. While dealing with a recurring shoulder injury, he got stronger and healthier while stripping off his belly fat, feasting and fasting his way through enormous amounts of food, including his beloved ice cream.

“Sink or Swing” picks up as the calendar turned to 2015. Those successes - and failures - from 2014 led him to stop jumping from program to program. He focused on finding that one perfect workout, that one plan which would finally break him through to the best shape of his life. Armed with iron determination and a handful of kettlebells, he embarked on what he dubbed “40 Days + 10,000 Swings.”

Too bad life kept getting in the way!

As he made his way through the workouts, his dad was facing one of toughest challenges anyone can face - small cell lung cancer. Every quest has its roadblocks, its ups, and downs. Would Chad and his dad have the perseverance to make it through?

If you are facing your own fitness challenges, or life seems to be constantly throwing challenges in front of you, then "Sink or Swing – Working Out When Life Isn't Working Out" could be exactly the book you’re looking for!

About The Author...

indie author

Chad V. Holtkamp


Alex P. Keaton was my idol growing up. I've always had that dual nature of being interested in business (numbers, wearing a suit, working in an office) while also being a creative at heart (singing/playing guitar in alt/punk bands, writing, and acting).

My academic adviser in college told me to learn a trade after I told her I wanted to be a writer. Being 20 and infatuated with Goethe and the Romantic movement, that wasn't what I wanted to hear. I wanted to be an ARTIST, not work in an office.

Fast forward 20 years and the office worker has won out the majority of the time while I've still dabbled as an artist. Having worked for a number of years in corporate recruiting, I've always had side gigs, be it playing in a band, DJing, writing freelance entertainment articles, acting, voiceovers.

Now I've put all that energy int0 chronicling my workout adventures to first inspire, and ultimately surprise, people about what can be accomplished while maintaining a delicious balance with your lifestyle. I'm currently working on several upcoming fitness books while also commanding my day job and Caribbean adventures.
