One Simple Thing

One Simple Thing

Author: Eddie Stern Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 11/05/2020

A pragmatic and succinct introduction to the purposes and benefits of yoga--philosophical, physiological, mental, and spiritual Yoga is reputed to improve our physical and mental health, and to help us become more productive at work, more caring in relationships, and more responsible contributors to society. If yoga does accomplish all that--and most practitioners will swear it's true--how exactly does it do it? Believe it or not, there are answers. And they are based in how the human body/mind functions, how we are built and wired, and how what we do can direct and change that. Drawing on modern neuroscience, ancient wisdom, and decades of practice and teaching, Eddie Stern's One Simple Thing explains how what we do affects who we become, and reveals how a steady routine of physical movements, activities, and attitudes are able to transform not just our bodies but our brain functions and emotions, and how we experience life.

Hero Maker

Hero Maker

Author: Duffy Gaver Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/05/2020

A breakout training and fitness book by Hollywood trainer and former Navy SEAL, Duffy Gaver, featuring the tried and true workouts used by movie stars like Chris Pratt and Brad Pitt. Former Marine sniper and ex-navy Seal, Duffy Gaver is the unsung hero of Hollywood. As a master trainer to the stars, he has transformed the bodies of actors such as Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, Scarlett Johanson, Brad Pitt and many others. He is a Hero-Maker. He gets the most out of his clients by making them rethink their lives. For Duffy, the fitness industry sells a myth: it's all about the latest and greatest fads. Back in 1965, Larry Scott won the first Mr. Olympia. There was no Nike. No thermogenic products. No supplement industry. How did he do it then? With his will, his discipline, his desire. The things that big businesses can't manufacture. The first four minute mile, the first iron man triathlon, and the first world's strongest man all took place before 99% of today's companies even existed. What does this prove? None of this stuff is necessary. Inside Hero Maker, Duffy Gaver shares the knowledge and motivational sit-downs that get his stars to take hold of their own bodies. None of these stars bought their way to their impressive physiques; they earned it with old fashioned work and dedication. He will tell you what you need to do to look super heroic, and he will show you how you too can do this if you put yourself to the task. Inside, you will also find some of his game-changing workouts to help get you there.

Ride and shine

Ride and shine

Author: Izabela Ruprik Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/05/2020

Ride and Shine is a must read handbook for any budding Indoor Cycling Instructor. Izabela Ruprik grew up in Poland and enjoyed cycling like most young people. When she moved to the United Kingdom in 2000 she discovered and became obsessed with Salsa dancing. Some years later Izabela qualified as a Level Three Personal Trainer and started attending Indoor Cycling classes led by a friend who suggested she train to become an instructor herself. In her own words Isabela realised she had discovered; 'Her dream job'. Eight years and over 2,500 classes later she decided to write this book to help other would-be instructors. Ride and Shine is a complete guide for anyone wishing to step onto Izabela's pedals and become an Indoor Cycling Instructor, and covers everything from knowing what's best to wear, where to train to how to become qualified and find work. While there is lots of valuable technical information in the book about the latest equipment and training methods this is not a dry and boring textbook. Ride and Shine is a fascinating and amusing story of Izabela's life as an instructor, detailing both the highs and the lows. No two classes are the same and no group of cyclists are the same. She describes how to make classes beneficial for people with disabilities and special needs and how to handle cyclists with embarrassing problems!
