Do you avoid exercise (perhaps sliding on your New Years fitness resolution), thinking that you need to spend hours in the gym or on the treadmill to gain significant fitness results? This is not the case! As with many things in life, exercise is more about the quality, not the quantity of your efforts. It’s often what we do the 23 hours away from our workouts that can most determine our results.
Today, on LivingFuelTV, we sit down with elite strength and conditioning coach Andy O’Brien. Join us as we discuss how a lean body, a low resting heart rate, and ample energy thoughout the day are results of your body adapting metabolically and hormonally to the physical stress you place on it during your workouts, along with what you do with the other 23 hours. What does this mean to you? You can maximize these adaptations with less time exercising by applying what you’ll learn from today’s episode.

This pill has been has been clinically and conclusively proven to dramatically reduce the risk of breast cancer by as much as 80%. Do you think this would be a popular prescription?
It may come as a surprise to know that healthy lifestyle habits and diet have been clinically shown in a significant number of studies to substantially reduce the risk of breast and other cancers that plague our modern society. A vast majority of the fund-raising activities for the pink ribbon organizations are rooted in good people with noble intentions, however, with over a billion dollars spent on the “cure”, little progress has been made in this fight.
In today’s LivingFuelTV’s HealthAlert, we turn our attention from awareness to prevention. Join us as we explore key factors that increase women’s risk and those factors that decrease the risk of breast cancer. This is vital information you are not likely to hear from conventional medicine.

You, too, can be SuperFit Without the Gym! Today on LivingFuelTV, join me and 59-year-old natural fitness expert John Peterson demonstrating the powerfully effective 7 Tiger Moves that are outlined in my bestselling book Super Health: 7 Golden Keys to Unlock Lifelong Vitality. The only equipment required is your body! First, here’s an excerpt from the chapter Golden Key #3 Exercise:.
“For years I have been looking for an exercise program I could do and recommend for anyone that would require minimum time and effort and yield maximum results, and I’ve finally discovered it. Despite all the astounding benefits of exercise, I know the reasons most people hold back. Most of us procrastinate and fear the consequences of what it takes to get in shape, and the truth is that most exercise systems are too hard and intimidating for people. We also tend to convince ourselves that it will take too much time out of our already over committed days and evenings. And for many of us, the cost of a club membership or expensive exercise equipment is simply too much.
That’s why I’m thrilled to introduce a system that is the perfect answer to these common issues. It is a system that utilizes time-tested body-sculpting Isoflextion™ techniques, along with high tension isometrics that literally allow you to become your own gym. It is so natural, so simple, and so powerful that it actually heals the body as it energizes it. You can use it to achieve the level of fitness and vitality you’ve always wanted to have, without joining a gym or buying any equipment or wasting a minute of your day. It covers every muscle group from your neck to your toes, and you can do these exercises anytime and virtually anywhere. And best of all, you won’t do anything that compromises your body, causing pain or injury or creating overuse symptoms.”
