A revolutionary fitness book by Chris Robinson that will change your body and your life

Personal trainer Chris Robinson has helped celebrities, athletes, top executives, and ordinary people from coast to coast tone their muscles and melt away pounds in a matter of weeks with a simple workout philosophy: train from your core. To most, the core is synonymous with washboard abs, but it also encompasses twenty-nine muscles in and around your trunk, pelvis, hips, buttocks, and lower back. A strong core gives you the stability and mobility you need for better posture and balance, reduced back pain, and a more effective overall workout.

In The Core Connection, Chris invites a team of five brave men and women with busy, stressful lives to follow his life-changing regimen for six weeks. The result -- a combined total weight loss of 78 pounds! Chris's unique program integrates the important principles of Pilates -- emphasis on core strength, muscle control, breathing, and correct posture -- into standard cardio and weight-bearing exercises for a total body workout. By learning to engage all the muscles in your core, you also increase your calorie burn and reduce your risk of injury.

The Core Connection is a safe, effective, portable workout that is perfect for people of all ages and fitness levels. Chris's explicit, easy-to-understand instructions are accompanied by clear illustrations that will help you check your form as he focuses on the specific aspects of alignment, muscle control, and breath that are essential for achieving the maximum benefit from each exercise. He offers a plan for simple, total body workouts that include mat work to help you find and feel your core muscles, cardio, and strength training -- with the option of using weight machines or your own body weight. He also shares important tips for improving your diet without completely giving up the foods you love.

The Core Connection is more than just a workout plan. It's a totally new approach to your life. Your body is only as strong as its core. With Chris Robinson's help, you can look and feel better than ever.
