Overview

Are you weary of cookie-cutter fitness plans devoid of anything you can actually use? Or programs promising great abs by Monday?

Eric Heiden, M.D., and Massimo Testa, M.D., are renowned physicians who've spent their lives facing every conceivable exercise problem, helping both elite athletes and people who want to finish a 5K or achieve lower blood pressure.

Part I of this book is a treasure trove filled with everything everyone should know about fitness but that even the best athletes do not, including how to start (or restart) an exercise regimen; eat before, during, and after a workout; lose weight while getting fit; treat aches and pains; diagnose fatigue; harness your thoughts; and select the activities best suited to you. Part II unveils a twelve-week fitness program, tailored to your needs, which will optimize your time, efforts, and results.

Faster, Better, Stronger, named one of the top ten books of the year by Disaboom.com, is highly inspiring and fun to read, with stories from Dr. Heiden at the Olympics and from Dr. Testa about helping the world's top cyclists as well as elderly and obese patients.

Doctors rarely make guarantees, but Dr. Heiden and Dr. Testa are willing to guarantee this: Everyone can get better. Including you.
