Make the Most of Every Moment
Not every movement is created equal. Super Body, Super Brain's targeted exercise circuits make every second of your workout count, harnessing the power of multitasking to sharpen your mind and tone your body in just minutes a day.
Crossword puzzles, Sodoku, computer games, and DVDs--there's no end to the products touting their brain-boosting benefits. But in this multimillion-dollar business, one crucial tool has been overlooked: the enormous power of physical movement.
Until now. As one of New York City's most popular trainers, Michael Gonzalez-Wallace needed to keep his busy clients happy with engaging, efficient workouts. He quickly noticed that when exercises used several muscles at once, combining coordination and precision with aerobic and strength-training actions, clients were significantly more focused--and achieved better, faster results.
Many hours of research and consultations with neuroscientists later, Gonzalez-Wallace had confirmed his instincts: exercises that demand balance and concentration not only tone the body, but actually increase brain activity. In fact, contrary to commonly held beliefs, the brain is constantly rewiring itself and capable of change at any age. This targeted program--the first of its kind--uses a series of carefully designed exercises to do just that.
As you move through Super Body, Super Brain's innovative circuits--for little as 10 minutes a day--you will being to:

As a powerful complement to these circuits, Gonzalez-Wallace has teamed up with a top nutritionist to create brain-boosting recipes that help maximize his program's powerful results.
If you have a few minutes to spare, you have the power to look better, feel better, and tackle every day with more energy and efficiency than ever before.
