Leo Frincu Releases First Book “Choosing Freedom,” an inspirational memoir.

"Frincu paints a tale that starts in black and white and ends in vibrant color. It is life affirming and beautiful." Says Ronda Rousey, UFC Bantamweight World Champion and the first woman ever to fight for the UFC.

Choosing Freedom chronicles the unforgettable and inspirational life story of celebrated fitness trainer and world champion wrestler Leo Frincu in a collection that is at once entertaining and life affirming. Choosing Freedom, tells the intriguing, true story of Frincu and his rise to success against nearly impossible odds, having spent his formative years struggling under the oppressive weight of Communism in Romania. Leo found Freedom in his passion for competitive wrestling and came to live in America after winning the world title. Frincu paints a vivid, if not always pretty, picture of life in Communist Romania and tells a deeply personal story of overcoming obstacles. The story is at once both heartbreaking and immensely inspiring. The compelling narrative is fast paced, informative and in many ways provides a toolkit for success. As Frincu bravely describes the intimate details of his life fighting his way out of the oppressions of communism, skepticism and general the negativity that surrounded him, the reader shares in his triumphant transformation and growth acquired on his journey of discovering personal and political freedom.

Frincu states, "My story is about more than my past and personal experiences. It is an example of how each of us has the power to choose our path in life, regardless of our circumstances. More importantly, my story is intended to inspire readers to choose to pursue true emotional freedom in their own lives and reach their best potential. Choosing Freedom is about creating happiness in all areas of life—relationships, emotions, and career. I use my memoir as a basis for teaching others how to set and achieve goals and make conscious choices to move their life in the direction they want it to go. Also, “Choosing Freedom" provides a tool kit to pursue a level of self-awareness that will allow the reader to break free from the emotional burdens of the past and the expectations of others."

Notes Darin Harvey, renowned sports Manager, owner of Fight Tribe Management and client of Frincu "By combining experience with motivational advice and self improvement tools, Leo Frincu's “Choosing Freedom” proves to be a great asset in for anyone on the journey to better themself and reach his/her highest potential in all areas of life." Harvey adds, "Everyone knows that Leo Frincu is a world champion wrestler and one of the top strength and conditioning coaches in the world, but the wisdom, insight and sheer joy that he has to share will come as a welcome surprise to many."

"Frincu paints a tale that starts in black and white and ends in vibrant color. It is life affirming and beautiful," says Ronda Rousey, UFC Bantamweight World Champion and the first woman ever to fight for the UFC. Rousey adds, "Leo Frincu is more than a strength and conditioning coach, he is a life coach. Everyone could benefit from this book."
