About the Author:

Mark Lauren has effectively prepared over 700 trainees for the extreme physical demands of the most elite levels of the special operations community. He is a Military Physical Training Specialist, Special Operations Combat Controller, triathlete, and mixed martial artist. Lauren broke, and still holds, the Department of Defense’s long standing underwater record” by swimming 133 meters, on one breath, subsurface, for 2 minutes and 23 seconds, until losing consciousness. He lives in Tampa Bay, Florida.

Review:

"This is a terrific book with a promise of carrying around a full gym in each of our heads! It fits perfectly in our mobile age of road warriors. It also provides a powerful fitness regime that fits into the support limits of our military forces on deployment anywhere in the world. Both members of my family and I are adopting the regime."  General James Abrahamson, USAF



"You Are Your Own Gym takes the strength training techniques of the Special Operations Forces and puts them into a comprehensive and easy to understand manual that can be done by anyone, anywhere, anytime. Mark Lauren has paved the way for anyone looking to get into the best shape of their life!"  Gregory Peterman, Sergeant First Class, US Army Green Beret



I’ve had the opportunity to observe Mark Lauren's training program in action. He was responsible for training my Air Force Special Operations troops to prepare them for the most intense combat operations. The progress in my men was phenomenal. He took the best of the best, most of them former athletes, and made them stronger and leaner than they'd ever been. Best of all, they can use Mark’s program anywhere in the world they may find themselves for the rest of their lives.”  Geoffrey McClendon, Lt. Colonel, USAF



"As a past Air Force Academy Physical Fitness Instructor and Commander of some of the most physically fit warriors ever to serve our country, I feel well qualified to recommend Mark Lauren's book, You Are Your Own Gym, to anyone serious about raising the level of their physical fitness. And most importantly, staying fit. Following the exercises outlined in Mark's book eliminates the excuses often heard as to why one can't get into top shape.”  John T. Carney, Jr., Colonel, USAF



Why do we have Bowflex, elaborate all-in-one’ pieces of equipment, or for that matter, why do we have Gold's Gyms, or personal trainers? In my experience the most fit group of men I have ever seen was my Infantry unit in Vietnam. There were none of these luxuries. You literally were your own gym for real. Everyone was fit, strong, lean and agile. Reactions were quick and everyone had keen and alert senses. What works about this book is the return to nature, give yourself some discipline, throw away the pseudo crutches, and gain control of yourself through your own body's gym!”  Mike Fisher, Commander, 82nd Airborne Division; U.S. Army Ranger; Colonel, U.S. Army



"Body weight exercises are the simplest and most effective method of getting and staying in shape! On the road, crunched for time, or without a gym, these movements allow the most elite warriors to stay in fighting condition.”  Van Hall, Lt., Operations and Training Officer SEAL Team Four, US Navy
