Improve your body, improve your career: An executive fitness plan by experts from the Cooper Wellness Clinic

· Tom Monaghan, the founder of Domino’s Pizza, runs four miles a day and spend 30 minutes on the Nautilus machine
· Dr. Thomas Frist Jr., CEO of Columbia/HCA Healthcare, uses time between flights to jog around airports
· Julian C. Day, chief financial officer for Sears, Roebuck & Company, surfs
· President George W. Bush runs three miles a day, four days a week

Why do these four extremely busy and powerful executives place fitness at the top of their priorities list? Because leaders who are physically fit are better able to handle the enormous demands and pressures that confront them, including endless meetings, grueling travel schedules, high pressure, and stress. For years, The Cooper Wellness Program in Texas has taught high-level executives (including President Bush) the financial benefits of a fitness program. Now this two cd plus one cd-Rom program brings an eight-week, three-part fitness formula to executives across the nation, using the best knowledge available to help busy leaders achieve not just the obvious health benefits, but more effective performance on the job.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Fit to Lead

"If you want to get more out of life and lead others to do the same, I strongly recommend that you read this book."
--Kenneth H. Cooper, M.D., M.P.H., "the father of aerobics" and author of Faith-Based Fitness, from the foreword

"Fit to Lead hits the nail right on the head. So many young men and women in their thirties and forties are pushing to succeed and forgetting about their body development. The end result is of course that when they get into their fifties and sixties they are unable to perform at their peak level because they haven't looked after their bodies. This book can help solve the problem, if you take it to heart and put it into action. I thoroughly recommend it."
--Dr. Peter J. Daniels, founder and president of the World Centre for Entrepreneurial Studies

"The best fitness book I've ever read. Fit To Lead can help the busiest person achieve their fitness goals".
--Chuck Norris, Actor
