“Many people begin a fitness regimen to help them cope with the stresses of life, but few are as stressed as Ferguson, who served ten years in a maximum-security prison for a murder he did not commit.

Imagine your worst nightmare come to life. One day you are driving home from work or school and notice that you’re being followed by two deadly serious looking men in an SUV. The moment you park they jump out and announce that you’re under arrest. In a surreal scenario of events you find yourself sentenced to forty years in prison for a murder in which you had no involvement whatsoever.
This nightmare really happened to Ryan Ferguson, an innocent collegian who spent nearly a decade behind bars for the death of a man he’d never met much less harmed. Faced with the crushing reality of life in prison, Ryan did not panic. He determined to survive and excel – to grow STRONGER, FASTER, and SMARTER.
Ryan knew that his physical safety was paramount if he was going to prove his innocence. Using the few resources he had in prison – a place with terrible nutrition, little medical care, and danger around every corner – Ryan built up his muscles, stamina, and speed to become a model of strength and fitness. He finally emerged with his innocence proven – and his body and mind stronger than ever.
In Stronger, Faster, Smarter, Ryan details the fitness program that got him through his ordeal. His regimen can be enacted anywhere – he proved it. Ryan also explains how physical strength is a pillar of a good life, even if you don’t face the horrors that he did.
