Fitness books love fad diets, creative exercise regimens, and, most of all, catchy headlines and marketing. But real success in fitness, sports, work, and life all begin with understanding and optimizing the human balance system. Proper balance is the key to unlocking your full athletic potential and can quickly help you become a faster running, smoother pivoting, better aiming, throwing, and hitting performer, with far lower risk of injury. But there's a dark side to the story of balance. Over the past decade, deaths by fall have doubled and falls have cemented themselves as the leading cause of concussions nationwide. Luckily, your body's balance system works like magic once its hidden potential is unleashed. The path to unleashing your Balance of Power lies within these pages and when you finish this book, the skill will stay with you forever. For the past five years, Jim Klopman has intensely studied and analyzed the phenomenon of human balance, while developing a game changing training method along with custom made equipment to aid students of all ages in achieving peak physical and mental performance. Balance your body. Balance your mind. Unleash your best.

The fitness industry has become an unregulated misinformation machine. It is commonplace for well-built "gurus,” who lack any formal education, to be given a platform to promote a supplement, product, idea or TV show. Often the results they promise are physiologically impossible - costing you time and money, and ultimately robbing you of precious motivation. However, there is great information out there. Getting and staying fit is a science that has been developing for decades. Research is progressing faster than ever, and there are credentialed professionals working hard to make this information available to you. Not just pretty bodies interested in your wallet, but professionals interested in your well-being. This book contains no gimmicks, fads, myths or misinformation. Instead, more than 600 references are used to bust dozens of myths, and provide dozens more practical suggestions for better results. The book is written in fun, easy-to-understand, plain English so everyone from the novice exerciser to the fitness professional can enjoy. • Some of the topics covered:Dieting Made Simple: You don't have to cut carbohydrates (carbs), or fat, or eat weird combinations of food to lose weight. • The Truth About Supplements: It's time to stop wasting your money on the ones that don't work.• The Myth About Toning-up: You cannot tone, but you can choose exercise that will burn more calories and lead to a leaner, more defined physique.• The Truth About 6-pack Abs: How do you get them, and are they worth the effort. • Muscle Myths: How to get more out of your weight training routine by avoiding the pseudo-science.• Tackling Cardio Confusion: What is the best cardio?• Motivation is not ordained, it's developed: Build a plan toward your goals with help from the latest research. If you keep doing the same things, you will keep looking the same way. It's time to make a change. With the information in this book, you can leave the gimmicks behind and create a personalized fitness program that works. No more misleading diet plans and products that promise unattainable results. You can be your own personal trainer and critically evaluate your options. Stop fighting your body and start working with your body. As an educator for the largest health club chains on the East Coast, I have trained thousands of individuals just like you to not only get fit, but to become personal trainers themselves. I understand how to make the science and research of fitness easy to understand, easy to apply and relevant to you. I know what fitness trends work and which ones don't. Special Thanks: This book is my attempt to a fill a void in fitness. It is a means of bridging the gap between the brightest minds in health and wellness and those pursuing a healthy lifestyle - an attempt to explain health science in simple English without the bias of sponsorship, product placement and profits. Ultimately, I want to help you avoid the nonsense and bring you closer to your goals. I appreciate your support in filling this gap, setting an example and hopefully raising the bar in this unregulated industry.

How to close the gap between strategy and execution Two-thirds of executives say their organizations don’t have the capabilities to support their strategy. In Strategy That Works, Paul Leinwand and Cesare Mainardi explain why. They identify conventional business practices that unintentionally create a gap between strategy and execution. And they show how some of the best companies in the world consistently leap ahead of their competitors. Based on new research, the authors reveal five practices for connecting strategy and execution used by highly successful enterprises such as IKEA, Natura, Danaher, Haier, and Lego. These companies: • Commit to what they do best instead of chasing multiple opportunities • Build their own unique winning capabilities instead of copying others • Put their culture to work instead of struggling to change it • Invest where it matters instead of going lean across the board • Shape the future instead of reacting to it Packed with tools you can use for building these five practices into your organization and supported by in-depth profiles of companies that are known for making their strategy work, this is your guide for reconnecting strategy to execution.

In this hands-on, practical book, Adam Wolf synthesizes his experiences in both the sports medicine and movement industries into a digestible, practical, and easy to understand introduction to integrated human movement while providing assessment and progression strategies along the way. REAL MOVEMENT is the first book to define true, integrated human motion, within the context of the latest motor control theory and apply it to real life patterns of movement. Whether you're a sports medicine or physical rehab professional, a corrective exercise or functional movement trainer, or just a movement enthusiast, this book is for you. The reader will gain an understanding that the site of injury typically isn't the cause of the injury and is often the result of something doing too much because something above or below isn't doing enough. With this in mind, the reader will explore specific ways to address these issues region-by-region. Throughout this book, Adam dives into understanding the interconnectedness of the body, within a framework where bones move, joints feel or perceive motion, and myofascia reacts to control the movement, all while being governed by the nervous system. REAL MOVEMENT's in-depth discussions include: * Qualities of integrated movement * Naming 3-D joint motion * Introduction to motor control theories * Current research on fascia and its influence on movement * Clinical considerations of the Lower Extremities * Clinical considerations of the Upper Extremities * Clinical considerations of the Thorax * Additional resources and readings lists at the end of each chapter * Detailed, accessible and easy to understand Exercise/Movement Library describing specific movements, exercises, progressions and regressions "We benefit from Adam's ability to synthesize the best approaches to a practical blend of techniques to create the most optimal environments for each individual" Dr. Gary Gray, PT, FAFS Founder of Applied Functional Science CEO, The Gray Institute "Anyone who has worked with Adam would initially characterize him as a "healer" and that would not remotely capture his brilliance. Adam is so much more than that, he intuitively understands that no modality, no method, nor procedure can outperform your body's ability to heal itself. Adam is a facilitator and teacher who guides his patients' intuitive abilities to heal themselves with a deep understanding between muscles, bones, nerves, tendons and spirit, and this book is a demonstration of that." Marc Davis 20 Year NBA Referee I read REAL Movement by Adam Wolf with great interest and excitement because of his integration of motor control and movement, a subject near and dear to me for the past 30 plus years. Those of us in the physical rehabilitation world must understand how the brain and the motor control system affect movement, as well as the roles of fascia, scars, kinetic chains and gait. The case studies demonstrate excellent clinical thinking, involving functional neurological assessments. I would highly recommend this book to anyone in the movement or rehab world David Weinstock Founder of NeuroKinetic Therapy "REAL Movement is the real deal! A marvelous perspective on human motion that will change your view of movement" Dr. Perry Nickelston, DC, NKT, SFMA Founder, Stop Chasing Pain

"A work of enormous breadth, likely to pleasantly surprise both general readers and experts."—New York Times Book Review This revolutionary book provides fresh answers to long-standing questions of human origins and consciousness. Drawing on his breakthrough research in comparative neuroscience, Terrence Deacon offers a wealth of insights into the significance of symbolic thinking: from the co-evolutionary exchange between language and brains over two million years of hominid evolution to the ethical repercussions that followed man's newfound access to other people's thoughts and emotions. Informing these insights is a new understanding of how Darwinian processes underlie the brain's development and function as well as its evolution. In contrast to much contemporary neuroscience that treats the brain as no more or less than a computer, Deacon provides a new clarity of vision into the mechanism of mind. It injects a renewed sense of adventure into the experience of being human.
