Fascia is a building network in our body that gives us support, structure, and form. Whether a thigh is firm and beautifully shaped or like jelly basically depends on the tone of the fibrous connective tissue—the fascia. Therefore, we must train and firm the fascia in addition to strengthening the muscles. Only then will we have defined muscles, a well-toned body contour, and a slender shape. In collaboration with renowned fascia researcher, Robert Schleip, PhD, Divo Mueller has developed a new training that specifically tones connective tissue. Applying the power principles presented in this book—sense, bounce, tone, and nourish—you can reduce cellulite and eliminate bat wings and a flabby bottom. Using the illustrated and detailed full-body workouts presented will tone the seven important fascial chains. This innovative training approach will especially benefit those with weak and flabby connective tissue. Additionally, physiotherapists, Pilates instructors, movement trainers, and fitness coaches can easily adapt these power principles as a part of their training programs.

After more than 50 years of developing, practicing, evaluating, and teaching his Run Walk Run® method, Jeff Galloway is now partnering with two primary care physicians, Ruth M. Parker and Carmen Patrick Mohan, with over 50 years of clinical practice experience. Both physicians regularly prescribe the method to patients with common chronic health conditions. The Women's Guide to Health is an action guide that combines Galloway's Run Walk Run® programs with the best available medical knowledge for using Run Walk Run® and the Mediterranean diet as key treatment modalities for chronic medical conditions related to excess body weight. It provides sequential action steps for overweight women who would like to begin a graduated exercise program combined with quality meal planning for weight loss. Run Walk Run® is prescribed like a medication with the core components of daily dosage, frequency, indication, and method for building up to the cumulative dosage of 150 minutes of Run Walk Run® per week. Diet and nutrition advice is offered in the form of food prescriptions. Throughout the text, the authors integrate the best evidence for forming new lifelong habits, encourage journaling as a core weight-loss strategy, and use self-reported health numbers to catalyze meaningful conversations with health care providers.
