veryone knows that physical fitness makes people look better and feel better. But what they don't know is the hidden benefit of physical fitness: it helps one's career. For years, The Cooper Wellness Program in Texas has taught high-level executives (including President Bush) the financial benefits of a fitness program. Now, Fit to Lead brings an eight-week, three-part fitness formula to the millions of Americans eager to prosper in the workplace-from entry-level to small business owners to high-powered executives. Based on proven, groundbreaking research and written under the authority of five leading experts, Fit to Lead: - Provides insider tips from top-level executives, including extensive and exclusive insights from President George W. Bush - Teaches readers that fitness improves job performance - Presents a three-part fitness formula specifically designed for the fast-paced lifestyle - Offers an eight-step self-leadership plan that applies standard business principles to fitness, helping those striving for success become their own personal trainers. Surveys show that many Americans plan to start a fitness program within the next five years. Fit to Lead not only provides these individuals with an exercise plan; it offers a plan specifically designed for busy lifestyles everywhere.
