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 encouragement.
Forget the diet books and buy this if you want to get improved
results from understanding what is happening to your body.
This is an American author so the understanding on hormones etc
is way ahead of us here in the UK but it is well explained and
No doubt the video / CD will follow in due course." -

Sprint 8 is now a part of my lifestyle. I do Sprints 8 every other

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

"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.
