"I have to
tell you that Sprint 8 has been GREAT for me. I bought a Vision
Fitness recumbent and have been using it religiously since then.
Sprint 8 is now a part of my lifestyle. I do Sprints 8 every other
day without fail, and it feels great. I can see the results I am
leaner than I've been in a while, have more energy, and just feel
better in general. THANK YOU so much!!!!

From retired chiropractor
thanks are just not enough to explain how I feel about my signed
copy of your book. As
a retired Chiropractor, due partly to loss of physical function
and inability to perform my job without pain, the topics hit home
with a blistering realism.
I have not been able to even walk enough to get to an even minor
aerobic workout for years. I have awakened during the night before,
worried and knowing that physically my health was deteriorating. Weight
gain issues and uncontrolled hypertension were waging war on my
system internally and externally. I have gotten out of bed, put
on my workout clothes, made a proclamation that I was going to walk
regardless of the pain.
devout as my convictions were, I physically failed miserably and
could not even walk 50 yards without sever back and leg pain. Surgical
options, due to the severity of my diagnosis and the failure rate
of the procedure that I need, were not realistic for me unless I
became completely disabled and unable to ambulate.
started the program, and in addition to altering my diet, I have
virtually eliminating refined sugar, and I have tiptoed into your
program over the last 3 weeks. I
am truly amazed at the results in such a short period of time and I have just barely scratched the surface.
my level of improvement doesnt even begin to approximate that
of a modestly fit individual, it is miraculous when compared to
my beginnings. I have lost about 15 lbs. My joint pain has virtually
been eliminated except for some occasional hip and leg pain that
occurs when I stand in one spot for a protracted period of time
(generally a sign of spinal stenosis). My energy level has skyrocketed;
my resting pulse rate has slowed 20%. I just feel better physically
and mentally. - Wayne Key **(Results
is an excellent book for anyone wanting to improve their fitness
levels from athletes to those, like me, looking to reverse the ageing
process. The preamble gives an excellent guide to how hormones are
so important to how we feel and perform and can be used as a building
block for improving fitness and energy levels. These simple explanations
are backed by scientific studies and in turn this knowledge is used
by Campbell to construct a comprehensive programme designed to stimulate
the generation of Human Growth Hormone by a series of exercises.
The book is readable and the exercises and tips are designed to
provide you with maximum benefits whilst also being a source of

but hadn't had any of the benefits I expected from running. My tone

From a Nutrition Consultant, Personal
Trainer & Lifestyle Coach
"I had an
injury that sidelined me for a month. Although I was in good shape
before, I gained a little weight and lost a lot of muscle tone during
that time. When I was able to get back to the gym, I was running
7 to 10 miles a day and eating an absolutely perfect diet. Despite
all my efforts, I couldn't seem to make any progress with getting
back to my original size and weight. It was very frustrating for
me since I was working so hard to do everything right. What was
once easy for me was now very difficult and I could empathize with
my clients who have trouble losing weight.
After reading your book, I immediately put your advice into practice
with amazing results. After only 8 times of doing the sprint
8 workout (over a 2 week period) I discovered that I had lost 10
1/2 inches overall and dropped about 7 pounds. I know it probably
sounds hard for some people to believe. I wouldn't believe it myself
if it hadn't happened to me. But now I'm back in my size 3's and
4's and feeling terrific.
But even more than that, I have more energy and endurance than I
could imagine. Before Sprint 8, I was running 8 to 10 minute miles.
I'm now comfortably running 6 minute miles! I even ran a 5 minute
13 second mile yesterday at the end of my workout!!!I'm so impressed
with the results that I'm now recommending your book and program
to all my clients. This program really works and it works fast!

The Sprint 8 workouts are extremely efficient and beneficial to

You just have to challenge yourself to get faster. I love the fact

"If you ever need a testimonial from a guy who had engaged
in a corporate culture of eat, drink, smoke and no exercise for
years. Someone who smoked cigarettes long enough that he couldn't
shower without coughing and who couldn't run 100 yards without panting
and heaving, here's mine.
I quit smoking in 2000 by substituting fitness and nutrition for
smoking. Initially when the anxiety due to not having a cigarette,
I either went for a walk or lifted weights. Later my son recommended
your book, "Ready, Set, Go" and I began incorporating
the routines. I began the "Sprint 8" routine and noticed
an increase in energy and fitness. I then began researching the
area and found a lot of research to support the "Sprint 8"
routine. I am a believer in short burst of intense physical exercise
as a key element in fitness training. My VO 2 max, fitness level,
and speed has increased due to Sprint 8's. I'm healthy at a level
that I would not have believed 6 years ago.
I have won a 5k, a few state medals and many regional medals and
was the " Senior Athlete of the Year" (2006) in the South
Central Region( whatever that means). I am not an elite athlete,
nor is winning the key thing for me. The competitions, medals etc.
are only fun motivators for me. The real benefit is health, fitness,
attitude and meeting many wonderful people. I do hope to be at the
next Senior Olympic Nationals.
