Overview

Make the Most of Every Moment

Not every movement is created equal. Super Body, Super Brain’s targeted exercise circuits make every second of your workout count, harnessing the power of multitasking to sharpen your mind and tone your body in just minutes a day.

Crossword puzzles, Sodoku, computer games, and DVDs—there's no end to the products touting their brain-boosting benefits. But in this multimillion-dollar business, one crucial tool has been overlooked: the enormous power of physical movement.

Until now. As one of New York City's most popular trainers, Michael Gonzalez-Wallace needed to keep his busy clients happy with engaging, efficient workouts. He quickly noticed that when exercises used several muscles at once, combining coordination and precision with aerobic and strength-training actions, clients were significantly more focused—and achieved better, faster results.

Many hours of research and consultations with neuroscientists later, Gonzalez-Wallace had confirmed his instincts: exercises that demand balance and concentration not only tone the body, but actually increase brain activity. In fact, contrary to commonly held beliefs, the brain is constantly rewiring itself and capable of change at any age. This targeted program—the first of its kind—uses a series of carefully designed exercises to do just that.

As you move through Super Body, Super Brain's innovative circuits—for little as 10 minutes a day—you will being to:

  • Improve your alertness and lessen fatigue
  • Become more mentally sharp with improved memory capability
  • Improve your mood
  • Lose weight and reduce your body fat
  • Strengthen your core muscles and tone your upper and lower body
  • Strengthen your heart and lungs and improve your endurance
  • Improve your balance and coordination
  • Transform your posture and become more flexible

As a powerful complement to these circuits, Gonzalez-Wallace has teamed up with a top nutritionist to create brain-boosting recipes that help maximize his program's powerful results.

If you have a few minutes to spare, you have the power to look better, feel better, and tackle every day with more energy and efficiency than ever before!

    A Holistic Approach to Fitness: Marrying Neuroscience and Physical Training

    The very talented, intelligent, and handsome Michael Gonzalez-Wallace has produced a book that is likely to change the entire field of physical fitness. In this immensely readable book SUPER BODY, SUPER BRAIN: THE WORKOUT THAT DOES IT ALL he has taken advantage of his experiences as an athlete in Spain, his studies in the 'science' of economics, and his communication and close relationships with neuroscientists, neurologists, psychiatrists, nutritionists and his personal achievement of becoming a Certified Professional Trainer from the National Academy of Sports Medicine and years as a personal trainer, and has designed and written the new 'bible' for physical fitness! What makes Gonzalez-Wallace's book so very different from the many other excellent fitness books is his inclusion of aspects of brain function as tied to motor function. He begins his book with a very sound explanation of the interaction of brain function with motor function and after explaining much data few of us knew he begins his exercises models, explaining how minimal work physically can simultaneously stimulate the brain to use different areas, the result being a workout for the brain that makes us more coordinated, alert, retain more memory, and master multi-tasking abilities that carry over into our daily routines. And most interesting, he shows us how that all of this body and brain conditioning can take as little time as 10 minutes per day (giving us options to increase the activity and thus the results in similar painless ways). In addition he adds to this fine book a nutritionist's plan for diet improvement that reduces body fat while building muscle and toning our entire body. There are many photographs of Gonzalez-Wallace demonstrating the various movements that are so simple to follow that the reader is tempted on first reading to put the book aside and start the exercise routine! This is a superb book that deserves a wide audience. Hopefully al fitness trainers will take the author's lead and help convert a nation of unfit and aging people into more productive happy citizens! Highly recommended for everyone. Grady Harp
