To put that in perspective, the average American woman weighs pounds. This book is designed for the great majority of people who do not exercise and would like to turn their lives around.
If this is you, you are in the right place. I have been an ardent fitness devotee my entire life and have been helping people transform their bodies for almost twenty years. I first began to take the transformation process seriously when I was in college.
After watching people exercise next to me in the gym day after day and year after year, I began to notice that they looked no different from the way they did when I first met them.
I began to question why and how these people could be so committed and not get any payoff for all their sweat and effort. I dissected the traditional exercises most of us are familiar with and became increasingly determined to discover the answer to why my gym mates were not getting results.
I began to study physiology; I delved into the function of supportive muscle groups, the skeletal system, kinesiology, and human performance. At a college in Boston, I was lucky enough to be allowed to observe some astounding scientific experimentation with next-generation magnetic resonance imaging MRI and infrared imaging that are considered cutting-edge technology. With advanced MRI technology, I could see how our muscles connect to the skeletal system and better understand their functions.
On a hunch, I asked to see what muscles looked like during traditional exercises using infrared technology. It was clear that only a small portion of designated muscles were radiating enough heat to be seen. With this technology, it became evident that only 20 to 30 percent of the working muscle was actually being utilized. Finally, I saw scientific proof that solved the mystery of why traditional exercises were not helping people transform their bodies. I began to modify traditional exercises and experiment with the creation of entirely new exercises to maximize muscular output, and I brought these new exercises back into the laboratory.
The infrared images from the new exercises showed me that I could call upon percent of muscular output. Theoretically, the new exercises provided a method to work the entire muscle and rebuild the musculature from its deepest point, giving exercisers a method to completely transform their appearance.
When used in conjunction with proper nutritional guidelines and cardiovascular activity, the new exercises could result in a complete physical transformation in the shortest possible time.
After experimenting on myself and experiencing astounding results, I began working with high-level college athletes using these new techniques and methods.
When I moved to Los Angeles, I began using these same techniques with professional and Olympic athletes. The system I developed has helped dozens of minor leaguers break into the majors, and it has propelled a handful of major league players to become all-stars. It has helped boxers to become world champions and amateur athletes to become national champions and Olympic medalists. It has enabled people to reach higher levels of performance after career-threatening injuries.
In the sports world, the secret is definitely out, and several teams and organizations have instituted this system. I own and operate a low-key private training center in Los Angeles. My clientele is an interesting mix of celebrities, professional athletes, and everyday folks who live in the neighborhood, including homemakers, merchants, civil servants, white-collar professionals, and entertainment executives, old and young.
In this unpretentious environment, a sixty-year-old fire chief can stand next to a young ballplayer and say to himself, If I work really hard, I can look like that. It is a place where a national champion figure skater will encourage a woman who has just had her second child to push herself on the next set of exercises.
For the noncelebrities and nonathletes who come into my facility to make significant appearance- or health-related changes, the improvement happens rapidly and dramatically. For the last few years, I have been talking publicly about the Hollywood body system. On other networks, I have done dozens of nationally broadcast makeover features taking famous and not-so-famous people through the process of physical transformation on such shows as Extra and Entertainment Tonight and on VH1 and the Discovery Channel.
