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.
