This web site will feature excerpts from the book, as you can get a sneek peek at the three main areas that Rock-Solid Fitness covers: Nutrition, Exercise and Mind/Body Wellness.
Let's let Bobby take it away...
Hey everybody, thanks for stopping by.
The idea behind the Rock-Solid Fitness philosophy is this: To create a high-energy lifestyle that's built around a "greatest hits" compilation of the most effective and enduring nutrition, exercise and mind/body concepts available. This involves combining proven healthy lifestyle principles from the past, with cutting-edge technologies of the present, and basing them in cruelty-free, ecologically sound, vegan ethics that will ensure a better future for our planet and all of its inhabitants.
Sounds great, right? But do we really need yet another health, fitness and nutrition book? I say hell yes. Why? Because there is a staggering amount of misinformation floating around out there and it's time to truly set the record straight.
Getting Beyond the Hype
Most everyone is interested in being well, feeling good, having more energy and looking better. So in response to our societies' microwave mentality of now, now, now, the majority of our multi-billion dollar health industry strives to appeal to the consumer's traditional fascination with the quick-fix panacea.
This has created the revolving door of fad diets, "miracle" supplements, and various exercise gadgets, and spawned the myriad of radically conflicting views that have become so prevalent throughout the media. All of these options and philosophies have made things even more confusing to an uninformed public. It seems like whatever health-related bandwagon we hopped aboard last week might crash into a smoking heap of controversy this week. It's time to get Rock-Solid!
The Rock-Solid Evolution: My Unusual Journey
The Rock-Solid Fitness philosophy has been road-tested in the trenches with spectacular results...and not just by me. I've had to figure out user-friendly ways to convey this material to the inquiring masses in everything from magazine and web site articles to private consultations. Likewise, the results have been unequivocal, as the Rock-Solid Fitness lifestyle has been honed, refined and designed to address the following objectives for anyone who consistently embraces it as a lifestyle:
Rock-Solid Fitness...In the Proverbial Nutshell
Rock-Solid Fitness is centered around three main areas: Nutrition, Exercise and Mind/Body wellness. In the book, each section, or Realm, has an overview, followed by several chapters that expound on all of the related concepts. There is also a series of action steps that will give you immediate results and lead to the mastery of each topic.
Rock-Solid Fitness is all about a balance of these Nutrition, Exercise and Mind/Body Realms. If one area is neglected, then the whole is affected. But if we give proper attention to all three areas, then the whole synergistically expands to create unprecedented levels of health and wellness.
Think of this concept as you would a diverse investment portfolio. If, for instance, you have your money spread out over different stocks, AAA bonds and real estate holdings, your financial "fitness" is much more certain because all three investment modalities compliment one another. Similarly, consider your efforts in balancing the synergistic fitness "portfolio" of this lifestyle an investment in your health.
Depth Over Discipline: The Ultimate Destination
One final distinction that should be made about the Rock-Solid Fitness philosophy is that it's more of a way of life, as opposed to just a program or diet that you force yourself to follow through “discipline.” This never lasts. Instead, this lifestyle is more about "being" someone, as opposed to simply "doing" something. Because on the deepest level of our being, we are more than just a healthy body or a focused mind. We are here to self-actualize to our greatest capacity and demonstrate this self-actualization through every facet of our life, including the food choices we make, the reverence we demonstrate for our planet, the way we treat both people and animals and how we take care of our Body Temple. If our activities happen to be extensions or expressions of a deeper, soul-level discovery, they will become part of an effortless and rewarding lifestyle and last for a lifetime.
This is my wish for you.
So enjoy the site. Over the next month or two, I'll be posting a number of different excerpts from my new book, "Rock-Solid Fitness."
Thanks again and enjoy the journey -
