Overview

The personal coach to Lance Armstrong shares the philosophy and program that have not only made him a world-class coach but inspired him to gain control of the rest of his life as well

Chris Carmichael's outstanding coaching experiences have convinced him that great success in any area of life is only possible if we first achieve an integrated, healthy, and balanced lifestyle. Only by harmonizing what he considers the five essential aspects of life--fitness, nutrition, relationships, career, and health--do we construct the strong, stable, and supportive platform from which we can reach for our dreams.

In his 5 Essentials Program, the coach who guided Lance Armstrong to his record-breaking seven Tour de France championships now provides the empowering tools--including step-by-step action plans--that today's men need to achieve their personal, professional, and athletic goals while performing at levels thought only possible in youth. There are many books that offer advice on making a change in one specific area of life--whether it is diet, fitness, career advancement, or relationships. The Five Essentials Program provides the integrated approach that really works to release the champion within and create lasting change.

    Poor advertising

    I just purchased this book and was sorely disappointed once I started reading it. This book is for MEN, after re-reading the description, there is one sentence that alludes this but based on the cover, dust jacket, and even the Carmichael 5 essentials emails I have been receiving there had been no mention that this book does not cover women's issues or even a uni-sex program. It's a male program, will be returning the book.

    Brilliant Book with Super Effective Information

    How great is this! This book shows how to get your life on track in several key areas (work, home, nutrition, wieght, fitness....). The methods and information are so good that this is a MUST READ book. It does require a little bit more thinking than a lot of books, because Carmichael gives you the real deal on training, eating, and foods, which is pretty advanced. Even so, it is not hard to follow and use. The discussions about his own life and his interactions with Lance Armstrong, and the case studies of real people were very nice. There was also a great section on medical testing that the author recommends. And, there are great menus and recipes. Simply a brilliant and potent book. Exceptional really and a MUST read for anyone serious about getting things together in life.
