From Mark Lauren, an elite Special Operations physical trainer, “You Are Your Own Gym” is an ingeniously simple, rapid-results, do-anywhere program for getting into amazing shape.
As the demand for Special Operations military forces has grown over the last decade, Mark Lauren, a Special Operations Physical Trainer, has prepared nearly one thousand soldiers. Lauren has been able to get them lean and strong in record time.
Now, for the first time, he shares the secret to his amazingly effective regimen—simple exercises that require nothing more than the resistance of your own bodyweight to help you reach the pinnacle of fitness and look (and perform) better than ever before.
Armed with his motivation techniques, expert training, and nutrition advice, you’ll see rapid results by working out for just thirty minutes a day, four times a week—whether in your living room, yard, garage, hotel room, or office.
The exercises throughout this program build more metabolism-enhancing muscle than weightlifting, burn more fat than aerobics, and are safer than both, since bodyweight exercises develop balance and stability and therefore help prevent injuries.
Choose your workout level—Basic, 1st Class, Master Class,and Chief Class—and get started, following the clear instructions for 125 exercises that work every muscle from your neck to your ankles.
Forget about gym memberships, free weights, and infomercial contraptions. They are all poor substitutes for the world’s most advanced fitness machine, the one thing you are never without: your own body.
