5-0 out of 5 stars stretch...release
Wow! Michelle's book is awesome! After trying different forms of yoga and a couple other stretching books, this one really hits the mark. I have been using the routines set out in the back of the book and they are great! Plus, the stretches are described in the routines section as well! No more flipping from page to page. After I do these stretches I feel warmed up and loose, and a relaxing coolnes in my muscles. Good but possibly long beging section on the theory of her system, and phillosophy. Touching none the less. I love the hip opening stretches best. Very relaxed form of stretching. Great book that I would recomend over many others. DANCERS - she uses some theory of Luigi's, if you know who he is, in her stretches. I love that.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE KEYS TO THE UNIVERSE
I am a forty year old construction worker in pretty good shape from the physical labor involved with my job. I have never been exceptional in the flexibility dept. but again my job has enough challenges to keep me passibly flexible. For almost one year now I've been engaged in weight training and martial arts. It has been through the martial arts that my true flexibility has come to light. I have tried several well known books and techniques doing both static and ballistic stretching. I had only achieved moderate increases and was considering yoga as my next step. Like a perfect accident, the clerk at the book store put a copy of Essential Stretch in my hand and after reading the back cover and three or four pages of its compostiton I knew I had found the keys to the universe.I could go on and on about Michelle LeMay.Anyone, man, woman, young, not as young, interested in improving the quality of their lives immeasurably, should own and use this book everyday!. I've only had this book for a week and my life is better already. This book is extremely well written and anyone can practice the techniques Michelle teaches. ... Read more

Early on in LifeBalance, Cory Everson tells a story about a woman she knows. This woman, a personal trainer, works out like a fiend year-round. She always looks like she's ready to pose for the cover of a fitness magazine. Most days, she's so tired from her exercise program that she goes home and collapses. She has no energy for friends, lovers, family. No life--except on the Fourth of July, when she wears a stars-and-stripes bikini at a party and has all the men panting after her. All that work, to be the center of attention one day a year.

Everson, a former bodybuilding champion (back in the era when female bodybuilders still looked like women), is regarded as one of the genuinely nice people in the fitness world, where relentless self-promotion and rival deprecation are the standard business model. In LifeBalance she comes off as a trusted friend who understands obsessions--whether they be about work, workouts, boyfriends, or housekeeping--and knows they inevitably lead to burnout.

And so this book is chock-full of advice to women for moderating extreme behaviors and beliefs; for finding some joy in fitness if you've previously considered it drudgery; for cutting back if you've been living in the gym; for shutting down the little voice in your head that tells you you can't do things. Everson punctuates these lessons with tales of her own negativity (believe it or not, as a kid, she hated her muscular, athletic legs, and other kids made fun of her almond-shaped eyes), some research on how people really end bad habits and begin new ones, and solid advice about exercise and nutrition.

Of course, she also fills the book with pictures of herself and her perfect body, which may, for some readers, negate the message of balance. Fortunately, she's very open about the fact that this was the body she was born with and all she's done is work with what she already had. The message of LifeBalance is that all women can do the same. They won't all get the same body, but they can achieve the same satisfaction with life. --Lou Schuler ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Cory Has Changed 180 Degrees from the Beginning
I've followed Cory's career from the beginning and I've seen how much she's changed. She was once a gung-ho bodybuilder who refused to rest and take time off. Now she's finally grasped the concept of true LifeBalance and I absolutely love the change. She shows you how to stay in shape while living a life! She shows you how to look great by working out LESS, and by not being obsessed with it. She even shows you how to cheat on your diet and feel great about it! Yes, she has changed. You go, Cory!

5-0 out of 5 stars A realistic, balanced and healthy approach to fitness.
Cory Everson, 6-time Ms Olympia, has written a book that offers a realistic, balanced and healthy approach to fitness and nutrition. Cory deconstructs the myths that surround fitness and well-being by sharing her OWN stories, along with others, of struggles and triumph. Cory tackles the often neglected topic of having a healthy mind as well as a good body image. By showing examples of how to identify negative mind-sets and steps for overcoming them; she uses her warm tone to make the information easily accessible for readers of all levels of fitness. It is also particularly heart-warming when Cory shares her own personal accounts of feeling inadequate and insecure - the book is strengthened by her personal anecdotes and stories. As a personal trainer, I recommend this book to all my clients and as an individual, I recommend this book to anyone looking for a clear, concise and honest approach to mind vs body fitness.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book is spot-on!!
I think it's great that such a super athlete like Cory, who has "been there and done that" has written Lifebalance. It's all about rethinking why we're all trying to lose weight and exercise--is it to (a) be thin or (b) be good to yourself?? By telling so many stories about herself you can see that she walks the talk. I could certainly relate to so much of what she said, and now I'm putting it into action and REALLY getting results from my (already)low-fat diet and regular workouts.

Highly recommended.

4-0 out of 5 stars Cory is buff, beautiful AND brains!
Cory is definately THE fitness guru in my humble opinion. In this book, she draws the connections between Mind, Body and Spirit and discusses how these connections apply to your work-outs, fitness habits and health. She touches on Yoga, Nutrition and a lot of the psychological barriers we can experience between oursleves and our fitness goals. She walks the reader through a sort-of self-discovery with journaling "assignments" that I found to be valuable and fun. There is only one chapter about the actual workout program, but still, this book is worth it. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Workout Book
What I like best about this book is that Cory and her husband have put together a really comprehensive set of photographs illustrating how to do various exercises. I take this book to the gym with me for reference during my work out. The book has single handedly taught me some principles of free weights.

The text of the book is written in a casual style that is less than professional. The raw style allows the reader to quickly build a relationship with the author better than one gets with the average trainer. I find that the people at the gym who paid to do this are less than helpful and do not have complete enough information. The diet information seems useful, although I'm more of an Atkins diet fan. The sample workouts are also a treasure -- there are many to choose from, all well thought out.

As for the 70's fashion -- it is cause for amusement. Hey isn't this stuff in fashion these days anyway? Cory is an attractive cross between Bo Derek and the incredible hulk, and sets a model for all of us to follow.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good reference for weight training exercisers
I found this book to be a useful reference in my weight training program. Cory gives good examples of many exercises, from beginner to advanced. I find her exercises more similar to mens than any other women's fitness book I've read. Because of this, it is most useful for the advanced weight lifter. One draw-back is that the publication date is old (1991). I would love to see Cory update this book in the near future. Overall, a great book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent workout and dietary advice from 5-time Ms. Olympia
Cory does an excellent job of describing exercises through text and pictures. Helps people of different fitness levels put together exercise programs for getting into shape. She also tailors special workout routines for those interested in preparing their bodies for any of 47 different sports. Excellent advice on aerobic exercise and nutrition. As a guy, I'm convinced the gorgeous pictures of Cory are worth the price of the book! Buy the book for that reason--and develop a great workout program for free! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Nutritional Guide
Not long ago I wrote an E-mail to a major women's bodybuilder on an Internet website who offered nutritional advice. I am glad my query was not answered since I found a much more economical way to receive the most updated information on healthy dieting along with plenty of accompanying information on exercise in Cory Everson's fine book. Cory's dieting tips come from the latest information from the Food and Drug Administration along with the top think tanks in the health field worldwide. As for her exercise tips, I found the weight training information highly valuable since I am into that form of activity. She stresses a practical approach to both dieting and exercise, and the tips are beneficial to anyone concerned about staying fit at whatever age or level of activity, from the professional athlete to people exercising to maintain good health. I liked the fact that Cory's book was devoid of the kind of radical, pie in the sky, results promised instantly approach to diet taken by some authors in recent years. The accent remains on the practical at all stages. Cory tells her readers frankly that results will come only when motivated people are willing to exert effort to help themselves by following sensible approaches.

Cory Everson is one of the great female athletes of her generation. She is also an excellent author dispensing practical information that, if followed, can only serve to benefit people.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed!!!
I got this book from the library. The more I looked through it the more disappointed I was. This seems more like a porno book than a book on exercise. I was totally disguisted with the revealing/distasteful pictures of Cory Everson and also the male model that posed with her. I will never pick up a book by her again. I want to know how to get fit, but having to look at porn pictures while doing it is not worth it!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very practical book!
This book has the right combinations of positive thinking, diet (including sample menus), and fitness, and how to incorporate them into everyday life. The photos of her and her sister Cameo are also very motivating! This complements her 'Lifebalance' book quite well, I think.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must have!!!
I am a big fan of Cory's. Her book is very motivating. You don't have to be a body builder to read this. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to get into shape. ... Read more

This is an exceptional tool for back pain sufferers. Very well written in plain english with a great workout and streches in an easily explained format...well worth the investment.

5-0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC BOOK!!!
Anyone suffering with back pain will find this book incredibly helpful.

5-0 out of 5 stars Back in Shape - A Back Owner's Manual
This is an exellent guide for dealing with back pain or back damage. The book clearly explains how the back and spine work (easy to understand)and gives excellent information with respect to what goes wrong and how. Although written by doctors, the book is focused on the fact that most back pain can be overcome by excercise. It discusses other options in detail, and is clear when excercise may not be the right (or only) course of action. I highly recommend the book, I have owned it since published (1991, it is now 2001) and refer to it quite often.

4-0 out of 5 stars great book, it will help alot
This is a wonderful book. It is clear, concise, and easy to understand. I liked the approach and the tone of the book. Get up, exercise, get your back into great shape! I recommend this to anyone whether they are suffering from back pain or not. If you follow these exercises you will feel better! ... Read more
