In Total Body Transformation, health guru Steve Ilg combines five disciplines (strength, cardio, yoga, meditation, and nutrition) with four principles (breath and posture, mindfulness, appropriate action, and practice) to achieve nothing short of total inner and outer fitness. This book brings results that simply can't be achieved any other way. What does Steve Ilg know that other fitness coaches don't? In 1983, while mountain climbing, Ilg took a 50-foot fall and broke his back. Shunning conventional medicine, he applied physiology and Eastern philosophy. Not only did he overcome paralysis, but he ended up winning five world and national championships in four different sports. Total Body Transformation features Ilg's revolutionary 'wholistic' approach. Unlike other training methods, this one gives people the secret to having it all: strength from lifting weights; flexibility from yoga; a lean body from the right nutrition and cardio; great definition; and all the benefits that come from mindful-ness, meditation, and true physical and emotional well-being.
