Until recently the "Exercise High", the effortless "zone" of peak performance, was available only to athletes. Now, this experience is fully within anyone's reach regardless of level of fitness. Whether you plan to run a marathon or just walk around the block, the exercise high can be yours for the asking. In Body, Mind, and Sport John Douillard shows how breathing techniques, dietary, daily, and seasonal recommendations, and a work-out tailored to the needs of your individual mind-body type will strengthen the mind-body connection, make exercise fun, and transform your experience of fitness and competition forever. No more "no pain, no gain"! Now you can learn to exercise comfortably, performing physically as never before. Take the work out of your workouts and feel better doing it. It sounds like a fantasy, but it's not. As you will see inside, dozens of top athletes are using John Douillard's techniques to dramatic effect. Whether you're young or old, an athlete or just thinking about getting in shape, Body, Mind, and Sport will help you to integrate body and mind for the ultimate fitness experience.
