If you travel for a living, The Elite Road Warrior is your way back to health, higher levels of energy and productivity.
I found this book to be an easy read. It's presented in steps to guide the road weary traveler to incrementally improve their health, relationships with their family and up their work game while taking on the challenges of living on the road.
There's simple, effective, realistic guidance in every chapter. I really liked how each section tells you how long it will take to read, which is pretty smart, so even the busiest traveler can read gauge how much time they have to read in between airports, meetings and client events.
After reading this book I realize there really are No More Excuses to not become an Elite Road Warrior. Read this book and start implementing today. Your health, your family and your career will thank you.
Loved the book. As a frequent traveler who does not fare well on the road, Bryan provided me with some great suggestions for both physical and mental principles to being more healthy on the road.
My favorite suggestion is to “stay moving” throughout the day, and not wait for a workout that may never happen. Take the stairs, take walks, and take mental breaks on a regular basis so that you can bank benefits incrementally.
I’m at a conference as I write this. I’m a big guy (6’2” 290 lbs) who’s recovering from 2 Achilles surgeries and looking to right-size. Yesterday, following the books suggestion, I climbed the stairs of my 8-story hotel 9 times throughout the day for a total of 72 stairs and 1,100 calories burned (at my weight). Combining that with his suggestions for healthy eating and drinking lots of water, I feel like I had a chance to put the books principles to work fairly quickly.
All of us know that the key to success will be to continue this beyond the first week, and Bryan has some good suggestions for that as well. Thanks Bryan, and 5-stars from me.
Bryan Buckley has definitely "been there". HIs thoughts and ideas regarding how to be your best while traveling is inspiring, doable, and it works!

Now YOU can be the one with the energy, stamina, and attitude to have your "best trip" every time, not losing touch with those you care most about, and arrive home feeling good physically and mentally, and not miss a beat.
For years I burned the candle at both ends and in the back of my mind worried it would eventually catch up with me. This book manages to interweave the key mental and physical energy principles behind having both ‘hustle AND health’ with simple, manageable habits anyone can start doing today.
The author’s enthusiasm makes it very easy and enjoyable to both read and incorporate in a rush rush world.
A must read for anyone who’s driven to succeed and doesn’t want to sacrifice their health and happiness.
I spent 80 of 100 days on the road at the end of 2018 and connect deeply with the challenges and solutions Bryan Buckley discusses in The Elite Road Warrior. But truth be told, being in the office when not traveling can be just as exhausting. Either way, this book will benefit the high performer.
Be warned: you will not be able to casually skim this book without feeling compelled to act.
Bryan makes implementation easy and practical. You won’t be overwhelmed with things that you could never do. And that’s what I appreciate most about The Elite Road Warrior: anybody can quickly improve their energy levels simply by focusing on their energy habits each and every day, whether at home or on the road.
Bryan Paul Buckley gives advice, tips, and a plan you can use to stay fit, connected, and mentally on track if you spend time on the road. When I spend time traveling, it gets difficult to keep my fitness and family ahead of travel. Bryan has been there and shares his wisdom so we can all be warriors on the road. If you spend time traveling for business, this book is for you.
Elite Road Warrior is a blueprint for business travelers that want to go from good to great. Bryan asks great questions and has developed simple habits to gain clarity for growth, maximize production and maintain a balanced lifestyle when you are on the road. Implementing and mastering this blueprint that he has laid out for you in baby steps, will take you to your next level. If you travel for work, I highly recommend Elite Road Warrior because the title of the book says it all.
Mr. Buckley has written a book that is very easy to read and has a fun, coaching style. He provides background stories to let you know that he has been there, and has felt the pain of constant business travel, but is here for you to help guide the reader. A very down-to-earth style of writing really helped me to relate to what he was saying, but the part i liked best was all of the tips for actually solving the issues that he is outlining in each chapter. I actually found myself walking the seven flights of stairs up to my hotel room on a recent trip after having read the book, rather than taking the easy way out on the elevator!
As someone who flies 100 or more flights a year, I know the stress of travel and how the ‘fun’ begins to wear on you. Bryan ‘s ideas are well thought out and extremely helpful, and he backs them up with fun quotes and statistics. Taking care of yourself doesn’t need to be hard, no matter how much you travel, and the easy to follow checklists and strategies in this book are presented in a fun and easy to follow manner. These ideas relevant for the most casual or hardened business traveler. Take the ideas in this book seriously and your life will be better for it.
One thing I would like to see discussed is meditation - it has been extremely transformative for me and would be a great addition to anyone’s routine at home or on the road.
Whether or not you are a road warrior, Bryan offers sound advise for your daily routine with great physical energy (Move/Fuel/Rest) and mental energy (Perform/Develop/Connect) habits. Business travelers at all levels will benefit from Bryan's wit and wisdom.
The design of the book is easy to follow with baby steps and 3 pointers after each chapter so there are actionable items to put in place right away.
