"I knew I had to get off the roller-coaster of restarting-getting stronger-reinjuring myself-quitting again. Honestly, I’d rather be out of shape than live in pain. Seriously, can you help?! At this point, I’m willing to do exactly what you recommend, whatever it takes!"
Please tell me how to MAKE it. I work for a living, hard, every day. If exercise takes hours AND leaves me with no energy, what good is it? Isn’t there a REALISTIC alternative?"
It seemed to them, that they felt "normal" but one day (and it really only felt like a couple weeks had passed), they went from being slightly unfit from the teeter-totter of taking a break to SUDDENLY realizing they had fallen in a pit with no idea how to climb out.
The HARDEST PART OF ALL? Even those who work their butts off trying to course-correct their fitness, get hormonally-derailed by pop fat-loss schemes, and physiologically "insane" exercise programs. Don’t get me started on "sketchy" supplements and media darling "guarantees…"
Combine these ill-routed efforts, and you create a hormonal-environment which feels worse than being "out of shape" – instead, stress chemistry makes them feel lethargic and incompetent; like they’re making excuses, rationalizing their "failures" and frankly, beginning to feel that maybe everyone is right, and they’re just getting "old."
~ 73% of Americans report working out at least 1/week; 27% of Americans report working out 20 minutes/day ~ 64% of Americans are either obese or very overweight; 36% of Americans get proper exercise ~ 3 out of 100 people feel that they’re in great shape… 3%!
Let’s translate this to a bottom-line: Those who workout for 20 minutes per day get proper exercise and aren’t obese or very overweight. There is some spill-over (about 9% who have biochemical issues which must be understood better) but let’s look at this 20 minute phenomenon more closely.
For the people who achieve the results they want, ~ it’s not about genetics (I’ve trained the most crisis stressed vocations in human history, many of them as genetically disadvantaged as myself); ~ It’s not the about the best gym (oh, you can sometimes find "it" there, but you can, with greater likelihood find it in your own home, hotel or workspace – where you ACTUALLY LIVE.) ~ It’s not about money (I’ve trained billionaires with the same troubles as everyone else – and I’ve worked with homeless who reclaim their fitness, and their lives as a result.); ~ It’s not even about motivational level (I’ve worked with best-selling self-help authors and renowned motivational speakers who are in abysmal physical shape; and I’ve trained people with depression and anxiety and aided in stabilizing their biochemistry.
Scott Sonnon was forced into a life of seeking alternative exercise options due to early childhood joint disease and motor challenges. Institutionalized for his learning difficulties in a psychiatric hospital, teachers and doctors advised that he set low-bar realistic expectations on his potential. Through tremendous persistence he rose to become an adjunct professor of physical education at Penn State University, a US National Team Coach and a 5 time world martial arts champion.
Suffering a broken neck, back, leg and arm, he sought out non-surgical options to healing, and became the first Westerner to formally intern with the former Soviet Union science researchers.
Healing his own injuries, he then became renowned among firefighting, military and law enforcement, for ELIMINATING injuries from the government agency who hired him to renovate the health and fitness programs at their academies.
His breakthrough programs help people transform their bodies from painful low performance to painless peak performance using his flow routines.
Through the very down-to-earth authenticity of his presentation, and the heart wrenching stories of triumph he shares from his youth have put him in great demand of nearly a half million miles of flying a year, his heart has always returned to his birthplace, working with families and helping men, women and children prevent pain and injuries and restore job… Read more…
