I’m a qualified personal trainer and fitness coach, competing bodybuilder and have a burning desire to help others reach their fitness goals.<br /><br />I have been training for over fifteen years. This training has taken me from long distance running to bodybuilding competition.<br /><br />It is fair to say that I have learned the secrets of weight loss and fitness from my own personal journey. I have been fat, skinny and muscle bound throughout my fitness career and I really feel fulfilment from helping and advising others when it comes to their goals.<br /><br />So this book is all about fitness for the beginner. Believe me; I can empathise with the beginner.<br /><br />There is so much contradicting information out there today that it will confuse the training newbie to a point that it will actually kill their potential.<br /><br />It is for this reason that I wrote this book, If I happened to be a beginner to fitness, overweight, recovering from an injury or unhappy with my body in any way and I know what I know now, this 6 week routine is exactly what I would do to start me off!<br /><br />Good luck and remember that I am always happy to help where I can.<br /><br />All the best<br />Jim<br />Email: Jim@jimshealthandmuscle.com<br /><br />

<p>An intimate look at writing, running, and the incredible way they intersect, <i>What I Talk About When I Talk About Running</i> is an illuminating glimpse into the solitary passions of one of our greatest artists.<br /><br />While training for the New York City Marathon, Haruki Murakami decided to keep a journal of his progress. The result is a memoir about his intertwined obsessions with running and writing, full of vivid recollections and insights, including the eureka moment when he decided to become a writer. By turns funny and sobering, playful and philosophical, here is a rich and revelatory work that elevates the human need for motion to an art form.</p>

At the end of Luck, we saw Jules and Pete settling into a new life at Alachua Eventing Co-op, where Jules will be the manager and head riding instructor. It’s not exactly what she expected out of her career, but things are going fine, and it’s better than living in a horse trailer, right?<br /><br />The cracks begin to show as the eventing season winds up and summer sets in across Florida. Pete’s new horse has an overbearing owner who is pressuring him into pushing the horse too fast. Dynamo suddenly seems to be showing his age on the cross-country course. And how on earth is Jules supposed to manage a barn, a dozen kids, and her own competition schedule?<br /><br />She’ll need some help from old friends — and maybe some old enemies, too — but Jules is going to keep moving forward, no matter what. From the pine plantations of north Florida to the skyscraper shadows of the Central Park Horse Show, Forward is all about chasing dreams, wherever they may lead.

<h3><strong>MASTER THE SKILLS OF A BODYGUARD AND REDUCE YOUR RISK OF EVER BEING A CRIME VICTIM<br /></strong><br /></h3><p>Now you don't have to be rich enough to hire your own bodyguard. You can learn the skills in this book and take care of yourself the way the pros do.</p><p><strong>WHO IS THIS BOOK FOR?</strong></p><p><em>“How To Be Your Own Bodyguard”</em> is an invaluable reference for:</p><p>• Anybody who wants to significantly reduce their risk of ever being a victim of a crime.<br />• People smart enough to figure out there’s more to self-defense than learning how to fight<br />• Anyone who travels for business or pleasure.<br />• Professional Close Protection Agents<br />• People who want to try and avoid trouble rather than fight their way out of it.<br />• Teens going off to college.<br />• Martial artists<br />• Law Enforcement Officers</p><p>Not only does the book explain how to keep you and your loved ones safe from criminals it also covers mindset training, which martial arts to pick, resources used by professional bodyguards and more. There are chapters on where you should stay in a hotel, the safest places on an aircraft, how to conduct a threat analysis like a pro, staying safe in your car, and dealing with blue light bandits.</p><p><strong>THIS BOOK WILL TEACH YOU:</strong></p><p>• That your car windows are actually stronger if they’re down quarter of an inch if a mob is trying to break them.<br />• Why riots and contact lenses don’t mix<br />• The four unconscious things that bad guys do before they attack you<br />• Why RUN HIDE FIGHT during an Active Killer Event is wrong,and what works better.<br />• How criminals select their victims<br />• Why “Soft Skills” constitute 75% of self-protection and exactly what they are<br />• A less than $10 security kit that will keep you safe in sketchy hotels</p><p><strong>WHY THIS BOOK?</strong></p><p>Because it’s been written by a former professional protection agent who, for over 25 years, used the contents to keep his clients safe in hostile environments around the world. As one Amazon reviewer said <em>“I am a regional disaster preparedness officer for a multi-national corporation. This is the best book on personal security and disaster preparedness I have ever read…and I have a library of such books.”</em><br /></p><p>Critically acclaimed by security experts around the world this is the only book you’ll need on the subject.Take advantage of Amazon’s<strong> “Look Inside”</strong> feature and check out the table of contents for all the things you’re going to learn. There’s even a <strong>bonus home security check list</strong> for you that the author uses when looking after high risk clients. <br /></p><p><strong>WHY MOST OTHER BOOKS GET IT WRONG</strong></p><p>They all begin with you being attacked. In reality the attack began a long time before the assault began. Non consensual violence begins with <strong>SELECTION</strong> of the victim. Next comes<strong> ISOLATION</strong>. The book will teach you how to run counter-surveillance and develop your situational awareness so you’ll know in advance you’re being set up. After the bad guy isolates his intended victim there will be a distraction phase consisting of some <strong>VERBAL</strong> patter. Verbal aggression is also always present in attacks in bars. <em>“What are you looking at?” “You were looking at my girlfriend”</em> If you can say something to make the situation worse then you can learn to say something that just might make the situation better. Again, the answers to that and more are in the book.If you can learn how to master those first 3 phases of a criminal attack then you rarely need to get in to the physical assault itself. As Sun Tzu said <em>“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting."</em><br /></p><p>Buy it and learn how to keep you and your loved ones safe. Get a copy for anyone you care about.</p>

Several years ago Ryan Robert noticed his niece was having body image issues. She obsessed about her weight and let it take control of her life. Eventually she even lost the confidence she once effortlessly displayed. <br /><br />As an avid runner, Ryan knew if he was able to get his niece to start running she would gain self-confidence, better mental and physical acuity. It would also allow her a better focus on health rather than weight. Ryan started writing notes to his niece about different aspects of running. These notes became the impetus for his book Running Inspired.<br /><br />Running Inspired provides a wealth of information for the non-runner and beginning runner. The book covers everything from proper form, to shoes, to running schedules, and food. There is also information on how to stay motivated including visualization exercises. These are the tools Ryan used to teach his niece to run inspired and they will help you too.<br /><br />Ryan's writing style is friendly, easy to read, and non-judgmental. If you have ever thought about running, even if you've never tried it, Running Inspired is the perfect place to start.

Former boxing legend Muhammad Ali, one of the best-known and best-loved celebrities and an international good-will ambassador, offers inspiration and hope as he describes the spiritual philosophy that sustains him.<BR><BR><i> "During my boxing career, you did not see the real Muhammad Ali. You just saw a little boxing. You saw only a part of me. After I retired from boxing my true work began. I have embarked on a journey of love."</i><BR> <BR>So Muhammad Ali begins this spiritual memoir, his description of the values that have shaped and sustained him and that continue to guide his life. In The Soul of a Butterfly the great champion takes readers on a spiritual journey through the seasons of life, from childhood to the present, and shares the beliefs that have served him well.<BR> <BR>After fighting some of the fiercest bouts in boxing history against Joe Frazier and George Foreman, today Muhammad Ali faces his most powerful foe—outside the boxing ring. Like many people, he battles an illness that limits his physical abilities, but as he says, "I have gained more than I have lost....I have never had a more powerful voice than I have now." Ali reflects on his faith in God and the strength it gave him during his greatest challenge, when he lost the prime years of his boxing career because he would not compromise his beliefs. He describes how his study of true Islam has helped him accept the changes in his life and has brought him to a greater awareness of life's true purpose. As a United Nations "Messenger of Peace," he has traveled widely, and he describes his 2002 mission to Afghanistan to heighten public awareness of that country's desperate situation, as well as his more recent meeting with the Dalai Lama.<BR> <BR>Ali's reflections on topics ranging from moral courage to belief in God to respect for those who differ from us will inspire and enlighten all who read them. Written with the assistance of his daughter Hana, <i>The Soul of a Butterfly</i> is a compassionate and heartfelt book that will provide comfort for our troubled times.
