From internationally syndicated fitness columnist and author, James Fell, comes a no-nonsense guide on how to get in shape, fix your finances, alleviate depression and change your life for good. We've all been there. Wanting to change your life forever, but only doing it in fits and starts. Feeling inspired to be disciplined one day, then falling back into old habits on the next. Or changing for a few weeks or even months, but then slipping back into familiar behaviours. Bad habits are hard to break for a reason. But you still try because the goal is worth it: slowly and painfully forming new habits to the point where you are able to adhere to a new lifestyle, long-term. Not only do we struggle with all of it but the failure rates of these models are staggering. What if there was a different way? What if sudden moment, which happens to be a surprisingly common occurrence among those who succeed would allow you to skip the struggle of behaviour change and just become a different person in a moment? What if all the motivation they would ever need to change could arrive unbidden because of a life-altering flash of insight? It is the power of epiphany - a triggering event when drive and clarity of purpose for changing one's life is instantly attained. James Fell's THE HOLY SHIT MOMENT is about that who have sustained change. The stories outlined in this book examine an abrupt awakening, where a person's purpose switches course in the space of a few seconds; their life is partitioned into the time before that moment occurred, and what comes after. In an instant, the gradual steps of behavior change are bypassed and life transformation takes hold for good. But is an epiphany something that can be generated? Yes. THE HOLY SHIT MOMENT is a self-help book written in a brash, audacious and informal, your-good-friend-giving-you-the-scoop style, but with the knowledge, research, wisdom and personal anecdotes to back up James' words in the vein of Jen Sincero's You Are a Badass.

With more than 5,000 customizable solutions in this book, you pick the exercises. You decide the workout, the location, the duration and the intensity.

Former editor-in-chief of Men's Fitness, Michael de Medeiros, and "King of Abs," Kendall Wood, have handpicked the most effective exercises to target all areas of your midsection. Crafting your core has never been so simple. "As a professional athlete, I believe wholeheartedly in core fitness. I wish this was available to me during my playing days." - Verron Haynes, former pro football player "As a trainer of many youth athletes that have had national and international success, I have had the opportunity to work with Kendall Wood for a few years. I have witnessed him utilizing these same techniques outlined in this book with noticeable, rapid improvement in strength and conditioning. His instructions are always clear, effective, and within the athlete's ability to execute. This is a great tool to have." - Blane Williams, Head Coach, The Heat Track Club (Marietta, GA) "Core Fitness Solution is an incredibly useful guide for those who want to take their core to the next level." - Nadine Dumas, online transformation coach, www.nadinedumas.com "I have been coaching youth football in metro Atlanta for 17 years. We were lucky enough to have Kendall Wood help develop our 7, 8, and 9 year old football players year round using the techniques and fundamentals taught in Core Fitness Solution. The core strengthening and stretching encouraged body awareness and control in our kids." - Nathan Halbrooks, Acworth (GA) youth football coach "This is the most comprehensive abdominal/core book out there today. Kendall takes core training to another level. The standard has been set, and it's been set high." - Dr. Jeffrey M. Malucci
In recent years recovery has become a sports and fitness buzzword. Anyone who works out or competes at any level is bombarded with the latest recovery products and services: from drinks and shakes to compression sleeves, foam rollers, electrical muscle stimulators, and sleep trackers. In Good to Go, acclaimed FiveThirtyEight science writer Christie Aschwanden takes readers on an entertaining and enlightening tour through this strange world. She investigates whether drinking Gatorade or beer after training helps or hinders performance; she examines the latest trends among athletes, from NFL star Tom Brady's infrared pajamas to gymnast Simone Biles' pneumatic compression boots to swimmer Michael Phelps's "cupping" ritual; and she tests some of the most controversial methods herself, including cryochambers, float tanks, and infrared saunas. At a time when the latest recovery products and services promise so much, Good to Go seeks answers to the fundamental question: Do any of them actually help the body recover and achieve peak performance?
