Radical in its simplicity, Dr. Eric Goodman’s visionary approach to mindful movement corrects the complacent adaptations that lead to back and joint pain, and teaches us to harness the body’s natural movement patterns into daily activities to make us fit, healthy, and pain free. Our sedentary lifestyle has led to an epidemic of chronic pain. By adapting to posture and movement that have us out of balance—including sitting all day at a keyboard, tilting our heads forward to look at our phones—we consistently compromise our joints, give our organs less room to function, and weaken our muscles. How we hold and live in our bodies is fundamental to our overall health, and the good news is that we all hold the key to a healthier body. Dr. Goodman has spent years studying human physiology and movement. He has trained world-class athletes for better performance, and has healed people of all ages and occupations of lifelong debilitating pain. His theory of self-healing is now available to everyone. His practical program trains the posterior muscle chain—shoulders, back, butt, and legs—shifting the burden of support away from joints and putting it back where it belongs: into large muscle groups. Filled with helpful diagrams and sixty color photographs, True to Form shows readers how to successfully integrate these powerful movements into everyday life—from playing with the kids to washing dishes to long hours in the office—transforming ordinary physical actions into active and mindful movements that help to eliminate pain, up your game, or simply feel more energetic. True to Form shows you how to move better, breathe better, and get back to using your body the way nature intended.

A radical and proven approach to becoming fit, healthy and pain-free without strenuous training, Dr. Eric Goodman's philosophy of self-healing movement and breathing is quickly being adopted by athletes and non-athletes the world over. People all over the world are experiencing more chronic pain than ever before, and it's hardly a surprise. Leaning over our smart phones, hunching forward over keyboards, sitting long work days in uncomfortable chairs only to get in the car-we have taught our bodies to adopt a seated lifestyle, but at what physical cost? Our movement patterns are no longer based on the body's natural mechanisms, leading to the back, knee, hip, foot and neck pain that has become an almost ubiquitous presence in American life. Dr. Goodman's revolutionary Foundation Training Program is the answer to this complacent adaptation. An integrated, powerful combination of flexibility- and strength-building movements, Foundation Training repairs maladapted movement and breathing patterns through three basic principles: Anchoring-improving strength and flexibility in the feet, which act as the body's anchors and directly affect posture and movement. Decompression-lifting and widening your rib cage, which improves breathing and strengthens the surrounding core muscles. Integration-anchoring and decompressing your body not just when practicing Foundation Training exercises, but also in your everyday life to effectively support the whole body. Getting strong and fit doesn't have to involve intense training or exercise. Instead, Dr. Goodman shows how your time is best spent focusing on strengthening your posterior chain muscles, and increasing the stabilization and flexibility in the muscles of the rib cage as you go about the simple activities of daily life. This innovative yet sensible technique has helped athletes and non-athletes alike to end the cycle of injury and pain. With the help of instructional diagrams and helpful narratives, True to Form teaches readers the philosophy, logic and movement patterns behind Foundation Training. Dr. Goodman's techniques can be used to enhance performance, repair damage, or simply to provide a solid fitness level for all.

A sense of fatigue dogs the fitness world. Many of the new programs that are tagged as groundbreaking are actually recycled ideas. Foundation offers something completely different for novices and athletes alike: a simple program with powerful and proven results that will remedy bad posture, alleviate back pain, and help readers break through fitness challenges and plateaus. Dr. Eric Goodman, a brilliant and dynamic young chiropractor, teams up with Peter Park, one of the top trainers in the United States, to radically redefine the core--shifting the focus from the front of the body to the back. Their groundbreaking approach works to strengthen the lower back and the full posterior chain and correct poor movement patterns by addressing mechanical imbalances and weaknesses. Foundation training involves simple movement patterns and is equipment free, creating maximum power, flexibility, and endurance. Word-of-mouth enthusiasm has inspired both Hollywood luminaries and world-class athletes to make Foundation training the core of their fitness programs. Eric and Peter's client list has grown exponentially to include Lance Armstrong, NBA star Derek Fisher, world-champion surfer Kelly Slater, and actor Matthew McConaughey.

Many people walk around with a secret: they experience social anxiety! At the same time, they are bombarded by messages from books, articles, and gurus that lead them to believe that social anxiety is a disease that needs to be cured. Consequently, along with social anxiety, they carry shame — believing that there is something wrong with them that must be fixed before they can live a ‘normal’ life. Often, they are waiting for the magical day when their social anxiety vanishes forever before pursuing their social goals, such as increasing friendships, finding a romantic partner, or advancing in their career. The problem is that social anxiety is normal and, to some degree, it will remain a lifelong companion. Social Courage presents a step-by-step, structured program for minimizing suffering in the face of social anxiety while giving readers the tools to boldly go towards their social goals. It combines strategies from Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Compassion-Focused Therapy to form ‘CBT 2.0’, to help readers cope and thrive with anxious thoughts and emotions using practical exercises and case studies. Whether readers are struggling with social anxiety of phobic proportions or are just held back when it comes to public speaking or meeting a specific social goal, Social Courage presents a path forward while minimizing suffering along the way.

This groundbreaking study demonstrates how the prevalent problems of obesity, ailing health, and lack of energy can all be easily improved simply by using the power of gravity. The survey is based on the author's research into how weightlessness weakens astronauts' muscles, bones, and overall well-being, suggesting ways to incorporate gravity into everyday life and illustrating how it can increase fitness as well as prevent aging. Addressing those who spend more than half their lives sitting and therefore struggle to benefit from even the most strenuous gym workouts, this practical, easy-to-follow action plan outlines simple gravity-resisting activities such as standing, walking, and dancing, guaranteed to produce better results than diet and exercise plans.

Ever noticed how technical swimming has become? There are so many fine points to all four strokes. You really need to break the stroke and its components down and work on them separately, and then put the stroke back together. In the process of doing this, you begin to understand much more about the stroke and about yourself. One of the best ways to refine your stroke, find efficiency in the water, and translate that to faster swimming, is to regularly build swim drills into your swim practices. In this eBook, you will find 125 drills covering freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, and even sculling. Each drill has a title, a purpose, and a thorough description of the drill, along with key points to focus on when doing the drill. Not only will practicing drills help your stroke, your efficiency, and eventually your speed, drill work will also help liven up your practices, making them much more interesting and challenging. Doing so under the guidance of a coach and support of a team is even better, so find yourself a team. You won't regret it. If you are a masters swimmer, check out www.usms.org to find more information on US Masters Swimming, locate a team near you, and see everything this great sport has to offer. Dive right in. I hope you enjoy this eBook and that your swimming skills grow by leaps and bounds. Happy swimming!
