To me, a Tinman looks shiny and put together, but they can’t go further than dreaming about making a change in their life. An Ironman, on the other hand, may not always look pretty but stays strong and grounded under pressure.

Chris Swanson is no stranger to life-altering transformations. After a home invasion helped spur his own dramatic change in his late twenties, Swanson became an expert in human transformation. Now through Swanson Leadership he coaches others in both finding their true potential, and in tapping into it to radically alter their minds, bodies, and spirits.
Chris Swanson cites every person’s first experience walking - the literal baby steps - as a model of success that frequently becomes lost as we grow into adults. “You wanted to walk, and there was someone personally coaching you - now, as an adult, you can harness those same motivators.” Swanson, who also personally coaches clients, has offered a pack of three audio CDs, “Underdog to Alpha-Dog,” to help those who can’t take advantage of his motivating presence in-person. “Underdog to Alpha-Dog,” encourages participants to start believing more is possible, create a plan to achieve it, and push themselves hard to achieve it.
The same principles are true of Chris Swanson’s book, Tinman to Ironman, which is set to launch February 24th, 2015 through Next Century Publishing. Says Swanson, “To me, a Tinman looks shiny and put together, but they can’t go further than dreaming about making a change in their life; they have no strength or perseverance. An Ironman, on the other hand, may not always look pretty but stays strong and grounded under pressure.”
He would know: Swanson grew up and spent his early life as a Tinman. He only did enough to get by; now, he’s changed the game for himself and motivates others to do the same. The 26.2 chapters in Tinman to Ironman represent the miles in the marathon portion of an Ironman competition. Swanson hopes his many examples of how to change one’s life will inspire readers to live up to their potential to be extraordinary.
