Book Synopsis



Introducing the fitness program designed by a physical therapist exclusively for women -- proven to increase strength, tone muscles and reduce aches and pains in just 15 minutes a day!

Few women realize that most popular fitness regimens are designed for men. Yet women have their own unique fitness needs -- and using a program developed with men's bodies in mind is not only ineffective, but can actually result in injury.

Renowned physical therapist Peggy Brill has devoted her life to developing an exercise program specifically for women. Based on her understanding of movement dynamics and body structure, these exercises focus on developing and balancing the muscles in the anatomical center of the body -- the core -- which includes the back, hip and abdominal muscles.

Peggy's remarkable head-to-toe workout targets the "hot spot" areas -- neck, back, pelvis, hips, knees -- that cause problems for even the healthiest women. In just 15 minutes a day, The Core Program's easy-to-learn exercises will help women:

- Strengthen their bodies to achieve balance and alignment
- Eliminate everyday aches and pains
- Prevent bone loss
- Protect against osteoarthritis
- Improve sleep, digestion and circulation
- Enjoy better sex
- Feel energized all day long
- Overcome the effects of aging

With inspirational case histories, detailed photographs illustrating each exercise and self-tests for rating balance, flexibility and strength, The Core Program is an owner's manual for the naturally strong, healthy body every woman should have.



Review Quotes




"Working with Peggy is a dream! Her ideas are terrific and the relationship she develops with you makes you feel confident about improvement."-- Coach Mike Krzyzewski, head coach of Duke University's men's basketball team

"Nothing is more important to strength, health and vitality than strong core muscles. I know this from both personal and professional experience. Peggy Brill's exercise program is effective for every woman, no matter what her current fitness level. And because it takes only 15 minutes per day, everyone can benefit." -- Christiane Northrup, author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

"Using The Core Program, you'll give your body a head-to-toe workout that will also tone your muscles and carve inches off your waist and hips. You'll look great and feel terrific. Best of all, the easy-to-do Core movements can be done no matter how old you are. It doesn't matter whether you are overweight or skinny, fit or sedentary."-- Peggy Brill
