Diesel, A Bookstore in Malibu welcomes local author Rich Roll to the store to present and sign his new book, Finding Ultra, on Saturday, July 7th at 4pm.
Finding Ultra is Rich Roll's incredible-but-true account of achieving one of the most awe-inspiring midlife physical transformations ever. On the eve of his 40th birthday, nearly fifty pounds overweight and unable to climb the stairs without stopping, Rich could see where his sedentary lifestyle was taking him. Plunging into a new way of eating that made processed foods off-limits and prioritized plant nutrition, and vowing to train daily, he morphed - in a matter of months - from out-of-shape midlifer to endurance machine. When, one morning ninety days into his physical overhaul, Rich left the house to embark on a light jog and found himself running a near marathon, he knew he had to scale up his goals.
Rich Roll has been featured on CNN and was named "one of the world's 25 fittest men" by Men's Fitness magazine. A graduate of Stanford University and Cornell Law School, he lives in Los Angeles with his wife and four children and, when he isn't training or competing, manages the entertainment boutique Independent Law Group, LLP.
