Overview

A sense of fatigue dogs the fitness world. Many of the new programs that are tagged as groundbreaking are actually recycled ideas. Foundation offers something completely different for novices and athletes alike: a simple program with powerful and proven results that will remedy bad posture, alleviate back pain, and help readers break through fitness challenges and plateaus.

Dr. Eric Goodman, a brilliant and dynamic young chiropractor, teams up with Peter Park, one of the top trainers in the United States, to radically redefine the core--shifting the focus from the front of the body to the back. Their groundbreaking approach works to strengthen the lower back and the full posterior chain and correct poor movement patterns by addressing mechanical imbalances and weaknesses. Foundation training involves simple movement patterns and is equipment free, creating maximum power, flexibility, and endurance.

Word-of-mouth enthusiasm has inspired both Hollywood luminaries and world-class athletes to make Foundation training the core of their fitness programs. Eric and Peter's client list has grown exponentially to include Lance Armstrong, NBA star Derek Fisher, world-champion surfer Kelly Slater, and actor Matthew McConaughey.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“I thought my lower back would be my Achilles' heel forever. Foundation training took that thought out of the equation. I feel strong and flexible, and my posture is better than it has ever been. This stuff is just plain good for you.” —Matthew McConaughey, actor

“I have always been in great shape and take pride in maintaining a certain level of fitness, but in the time I have been working with Peter Park and Eric Goodman, I have reached a new level of endurance, stamina, and strength. The program pushes me without exhausting me, conditions me, and has completely changed the way my body moves and feels.” —Derek Fisher, LA Laker and NBA champion

“I am fortunate enough to represent some of the world's greatest athletes, and after working with Peter and Eric for the last two years, I am starting to feel as strong as one! The core principles of this book have made me stronger and fitter than I ever imagined possible, and I intend to make them a part of my daily routine for many years to come.” —Casey Wasserman, chairman and CEO of Wasserman Media Group

I have had a spinal fusion on my lower back and now have nerve damage from the surgery. I also have a herniated disc in the middle of my back. My pain management doctor referred this book to me. I read it in two days and have been doing the exercises for four weeks. WOW! I feel like a different person. I cancelled my epideral appointment. I recommend this book to anyone whom has/had back pain. I really learned alot.

This is fabulous information and an incredible new approach. Would have loved to actually have recieved the "10 included videos". When i contacted the foundation folks about it, they said it is a b&n issue. Hope they follow through with the product as advertised on their site. Feel little shorted on product described.

I think the program makes a lot of sense and i cannot wait to try it. In the overview it says 10 videos were created for the ebook. I purchased the book, but i do not see the videos anywhere...

This book was very informative and helpful. Within just a couple of days I noticed a huge change in the way my back felt. It was a life changer for sure! I am a very busy 42 year old mom, I don't have time for back problems to keep me down. I plan on doing a 12K in May thanks to this book.
