Focus on strengthening your core - your lower back, hips, abdominals
and thighs. Achieve quicker metabolism; a smaller waistline;
larger, more balanced muscle mass; and substantial new resources of
physical, mental and emotional energy.
Mark Verstegen's Core Performance is a comprehensive 12-week program that will
help you find your inner athlete.
Learn how to develop strength, flexibility, endurance and power
without overemphasizing or shortchanging any component. Recover from
workouts properly, so you can get leaner and stronger while everyone
around you is just getting tired. Core Performance also shows
you how to eat the right foods in order to get the body you want and
the energy to have more fun with it!
"One of the biggest mistakes that
the average person makes when working out is thinking that he or she
should train differently than an elite athlete . . . . Mark Verstegen,
who has trained some of sport's biggest names, has developed a cutting
edge program that everyday folks can fit into their hectic lifestyle.
That's what Core Performance is all about."
