“We were told that Eddie Baran was going to “show” us some exercises for our core. However, we were NOT doing any type of crunch, sit-up or twist, or anything else I have ever seen before. Sometimes we were pretty much just holding certain positions, positions that had us quickly shaking, sweating, breathing deeply and hoping that Eddie would let us relax SOON! What a workout! It was targeted for the midsection but my (and the others) entire body was put to the test. A superior way to tie the entire body together through the midsection. Give me more!”
Master Gunnery Sergeant, USMC
“Eddie Baran knows abs better than Bo knows all his stuff. I had the opportunity to train under Eddie’s direct supervision at Matthew Furey’s 2007 Secret of Secrets Bootcamp. Along with all the other participants Eddie put me through several ab exercises that I had never seen nor ever would have dreamed up on my own. I can attest to the effectiveness of those exercises myself as you could feel them working immediately. The next day I heard several participants talking about how sore their abs were and how knocked over they were. I too had that feeling in my muscles which confirms an effective workout. All this was just from a few minutes of guided instruction. When Eddie said he was putting out a course on the ab exercises I got very excited about it because now I can get that personal training touch any time I want. And after two sessions I know I’m going to make a big difference in my progress. This is the missing link for ab strengthening. I’ve been a big fan of Eddie Baran for a long time, and anyone else will be too once he instructs them. When Eddie Baran talks abs I’m listening.”

“I first learned Eddie Baran’s new ab program in a personal session earlier this year. In the first minutes I was amazed at the pump certain muscles (in my core) received that I never knew existed. For the last year — due to the extra baggage ’round the ends — I had been searching for exercises to obliterate my love handles. And Eddie delivered several amazing ones ALL of which made the cut for my current ab routine. As a result of Eddie’s ab regimen, new ab muscles are punching through the once undefined distended stomach. I highly recommend his program to anyone wanting to turn your ‘Schlitz Tumor’ into a six pack of carved granite. Thanks so much Eddie for this one-of-a-kind program.”

“In February 2007, at the latest installment of Matthew Furey’s Secret of Secrets Fitness Bootcamp, I had the opportunity to be drilled by Eddie Baran. I cannot remember the last time – before Eddie Baran got a hold of me – that my entire body was quaking, trembling and vibrating from an abdominal workout in such a small span of time. I along with the entire group of attendees at the seminar, sweated and grunted as Eddie demonstrated and then more or less demanded our performance of physical feats that quite honestly I was hard pressed to perform… and I’ve got a gut of iron! I can only imagine what an entire course is going to do for my body if that short time I committed to at the seminar revved my muscular engines so quickly. What I noticed immediately about Eddie’s selection of ab exercises was that they weren’t just working that small section of muscle over my intestines, but rather was including the whole body! Arms, legs, chest, lower back and of course every other muscle of the mid section. His exercise regimen helped me pin point weaknesses in my physical being, that I now know can be worked to the fullest potential with the program that Eddie has in store for us. I am awaiting another body transformation when I use his course to its fullest extent. I think Ed’s new program is the Bees Knees! He puts together a fantastic product, always! Thank you Eddie Baran.”

“Eddie and Andy,
“I have never written back after buying anyone’s product. But I have to with you guys. I got your Gymnastic Abs program yesterday. Words can not express how much I loved it. The exercises are great. The DVD’s are great. And, the book with pictures along with the programs are so well written and thought out. And, the price is a bargain considering what you get. It is worth every penny.
“I can take your book when I do your exercises and not only read exactly how to do the exercises, but you even have pictures to refresh my memory from your DVD to make sure my form is perfect.
“Again, I can not tell you in words what a great job you and Andy did on this project. I will be buying more from you knowing the quality and information is second to none. I did a workout Saturday night and this morning. And, yes my abs are screaming as I write this and I am starting with your 1st beginner exercises. I look forward to progressing from level 1 to level 12. You could not have put it together better with the end user in mind. You have a breakthrough success.
“I should thank Andy for showing the before and after pictures. That is a strong testimonial. I am in my 40’s like Andy and really related to him.
I bought your Gymnastic abs not long ago. I’m doing several of the exercises only three times a week and they definitely work. I’m a life-time drug free powerlifter, and I can bench 500lbs, weighing 190 lbs. Getting strong abs from doing the Gymnastic abs exercises actually help all my lifting improve, not only my benchpress! But, in addition to training with weights I find that supplementing my workouts with bodyweight exercises does work very well when it comes to increasing power.
Keep up the good work,”
I received the Gymnastic Abs course yesterday, watched the DVDs and skimmed through the manual last night and went to work on it this morning! It is awesome and presents some real challenges even with the seemingly simple basic steps. The thing I really appreciate is the way you explain the finer points of each exercise when performed from a gymnast’s point of view. The devil really is in the details. I would recommend everyone gets a copy of this valuable course. Thanks!”
“One of my favorite sports to watch is gymnastics. I marvel at what these unique athletes are able to do with their bodies. While I am sure it takes balance, technique, and conditioning to perform the routines, make no mistake about it, the key attribute to their success is raw power, and that power is generated from the core. The mid-section is the facilitator for all movements. This type of power cannot be achieved with a few crunches and stomach flexes. You must adopt a gymnast’s approach if want this impressive type of functional strength.
“Functional strength is term that is often over-used, however in this case it is not. With Gymnastic Abs you can actually chart your progress with the ablity to perform the movements. No rep-counting and boring, stale regimens.
“Eddie Baran TRAINS gymnasts so you can bet he knows what he is doing. This is the best core training program I have ever seen. Even at my age I am inspired to be able to perform the most difficult exercise. It may take 6 months but I am determined to do it. You will be inspired in the same manner.”
“The Gymnastic Abs course is probably one of the most beneficial I’ve added in. It makes you work the entire body from head to toe and when he adds isometrics in it makes it all that much better. I’ve been using it for some time now in combination with other systems and this fits perfectly. You’ll have a blast with this and trust me using the exercises in combo with other CC exercises will not only make you stronger but leaner and you’ll shed more. Since I’ve added the exercises with other programs i’ve lost around 12-13 pounds of bodyweight and started showing more muscle.
“I’m very pleased and hooked. Eddie is by far one of the most revolutionary trainers today and it comes to no surprise from his Primate Power course he is a powerful man. I’m a huge fan of gymnastics and as a bodyweight culturist its awesome to do this type of training. Congrats Eddie on your success on this course. Andy, you did a hell of a job as well and I applaud you for taking your training far beyond what you have done previously, congrats to you as well. The course is awesome and I can’t wait for your next project.”
“Yours in Power & Might,”

I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much I like the Gymnastic Abs DVDs. The exercises are challenging, fun, and most importantly, effective.
Hi Mr. Baran.
I recently received Gymnastic Abs, and I have to say that it’s amazing. I can see a big difference in my abdominal appearance and strength.
I recently bought your Gymnastic Abs. What a tremendous course. I am so excited about the gains I am making and the results. You guys are awesome. Gymnasts are truly the strongest athletes in the world.
Great work on the Gymnastic Abs. I’m seeing the difference in 2 short weeks! I’m finding the course brilliant and it shows all the faults my own abdominal programme had. I’m using it with my personal training clients.
S. Wales, UK
I’m writing about your Gymnastic Abs. What a great course! This is the best course I’ve seen in a long while. You and your brother Andy do a terrific job. Last night I was so excited that I spent an hour doing this material and even my traps are sore today. Awesome! It’s terrific. I’m very pleased and have benefited greatly.
Thanks, Eddie, great work!
Loving the Gymnastics Abs program so far. I’ve done the workout three times, and I’ve already noticed a difference. Getting into the shower, I was surprised to see muscle definition that I don’t think I’ve ever had and I just feel more solid.
“The biggest thing I noticed was that the Gymnastic Abs Course hit your entire body HARD! It hits abs and everything else attached. I am very glad I got the course. It showed me just how out of shape my abdominal full body is. It’s very effective.”
“Gymnastic Abs is a great set of exercises. I was in the doctor’s office the other day, lying on the examining table gettting my heart checked. My doctor asked me how my abs got that hard. He said I’ve got the hardest abs of any his patients. And I’m 59 years young!”
I am so glad I decided to purchase your Gymnastic Abs course. Physically I am very limited. I am almost 60, am on oxygen, had triple bypass surgery, a pacemaker, emphysema, a paralyzed left diaphragm, diabetes, kidney stones, had abdominal aortic aneurysm surgery six months ago, colon cancer survivor, that might be it.
“I love the course. It has been about 10 days but I am already getting firmer around the middle, even though I am only doing the easiest versions of the three most basic exercises. My overhang belly is not hanging as much, as it is shrinking.
“I enjoy doing these exercises and look forward to doing then each day. I would hate to be doing situps, crunches, etc. They are boring and you can never do enough. But the exercises in your course have worked well for me. I am not worried about how many reps or all the other things I usually think about when exercising, as I am doing just as you have told me in the program and that works.
Thank you for all your help.”

I just ordered Gymnastic Abs a couple of weeks and it’s simply the greatest routine I’ve ever done. My abs are firming up like never before and it’s having wonderful knock-on effects, such as making handstand push-ups and dips easier.
Many thanks, Eddie!
Getting your Secret Power of Handstand Training and Gymnastic Abs program were one of the best things that I ever did! I’ve always liked abdominal training, knowing that you need a strong core for supporting a healthy body. I have noticed a big difference in my core strength while only spending a short time on your exercises. Thank you so much for all that you promote in the way of fitness.
I’m from Korea, 25 years old and following your instruction about ‘Gymnastic Abs.’ First of all, I think it’s really good program for great abs, more than anything I’ve ever seen before. And in Korea, there’s no this kind of pragmatic abs training media. Actually, there are only shallow and superficial abs training garbage things around stores and TV, just for ‘Good-Looks’. So, I deeply appreciate your program and your effort. If I were living in America, I’d attend your seminar.
Seoul, South Korea
I purchased your Gymnastic Abs program and I love it! I believe it is the best ab workout ever, and I have tried a lot of them. I have been an athlete my whole life and have tried every workout/program out there but this is the best of them all.

I’ve been doing Animal Kingdom Conditioning for 3 weeks now and have lost 10 pounds already, even though and I take medication which causes obesity as a side effect!
I used to lift weights, run 10-12 miles a day and I still gained 30 pounds of fat due to medication! I thought there was no getting away from these fattening side effects. I felt as if there was no hope until I came across your ad in a magazine. Then I read your website over and over and wondered if this was the answer. So I saved for 3 months and bought your entire set.
My body’s muscles have started reconstructing themselves and taking the shape of a gorilla as opposed to a bodybuilder and I feel incredible! just like an animal! This would have never happened if it wasn’t for your program. It was truely inspired.

P.S. My eight year old daughter trains everyday with Animal Kingdom Conditioning and she is DOMINATING her martial arts class because of it. I’ll soon send you a picture of her abs, arms and legs. It will blow your freaking minds!!!
I wanted to tell you what a great program Gymnastic Abs is – I love it! Nothing has ever worked my whole midsection this well. I was already in good shape, yet this program took me to a whole new level. I am definitely recommending your excellent product and thanks to you and your bro for turning out a great product.
I recently got your Animal Kingdon Conditioning course and it is one amazing course. I’ve always looked at animals as role models for how strong and graceful they were but there’s never really been a course modeled completely after them. Now that I have yours my strength in every aspect has skyrocketed.
I love Animal Kingdom Conditioning. I went to a park and tried some of the workouts as best I could and just did enough to get a great workout. This is one awesome course! This was probably one of the toughest workouts I have ever put myself through, and that’s saying something since I have done some hardcore workouts. This definitely gave me something to look at not only for fun but conditioning everything in a short amount of time.
In the week since I’ve had AKC I’ve been sleeping better, I’ve been less irritated about certain things and I feel more relaxed than I have in a while. I’m feeling the animal within almost all the time. I do a little to more of the exercises this entire time and the Dice Game has been put in my brain! I’m loving it! It’s a lot of fun and I know I’m working every part of my body just from moving a few steps in each exercise.
This is not a course to be underestimated. You and Andy did an awesome job with this. I already feel like a powerful animal so that’s one thing I will never lose sight of. You really got something here and it’s just flat out unbelieveable. You have done well and I’ll tell ya this, without thinking twice, not one other workout has made me sweat and worn out quicker than AKC and I mean this with every sincerity. I’m very proud to be an animal and it really brings out a side of me I never knew existed. I’m honored to be apart of this and its something I will always cherish because Physical Culture is my life and this just puts more icing on the cake.

WOW! what a awesome feeling! The Animal Kingdom Conditioning course is magnificent stuff man!!! Thanks for putting together such a great product!!! i always say give credit where it is warranted and the new course is beautiful man!
i haven’t had a bad nor boring workout from your course yet man! My mind and body thank you for sharpening them up with this gem. we’re going to implement Animal Kingdom Conditioning into my schools (martial arts) program we have more kids than adults. they are going to love it! i will be introducing the curriculum to the school very soon. I appreciate all the inspiration!
Now gotta run and bust out an animal dice game!
Just a couple days ago I got your Animal Kingdom Conditioning course. At the park my friend and I play the dice game (awesome idea, by the way) and it was a blast. Probably 15-20 minutes of going back and forth. I don’t know what was worse, getting out of breath from all the various animal leg exercises or frying the upper body with certain other animal exercises. No, the worst had to be the 20 straight of this one animal we had to do.
A change of pace from what I’ve been doing but definately an awesome workout. Not to mention tons of people staring at us wondering what the hell we were doing. But that just adds to the fun.
I am a chiropractor in Anchorage, Alaska. I have your Animal Kingdom Conditioning. It rocks! I/we are thrilled with our results. The Animal workouts kick ass!
Thanks for your programs,
Peter Ryan, DC
Thanks for really getting me back on track to feeling in my 20s again. I’m 42 now. The Animal Kingdom Conditioning is a smoker for me, even doing the Basic levels of mammal and reptile. I love it. From all of my time in the Marine Corps infantry and the Army infantry, the only time we did anything like the Animal exercises was at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot at Parris Island. The strength in my shoulders is coming back, and I didn’t realize I was so weak. The Animal strength helps a great deal. My peers think I’m nuts, but I can’t do the regular gym workouts due to the years of heavy powerlifting and the infantry. The bodyweight workouts definitely help increase functional strength much more effectively and efficiently than free weights. You and Matt Furey are definitely onto something awesome!
Again, many thanks!

“I just wanted to let you know that I am having some fabulous results with your program Body Sculpting Bodyweight Exercises for Women – and eating the right foods.
“In the past 3 weeks, I’ve dropped 7 pounds, an inch off my waist, an inch off my hips, and I’m getting stronger. My body fat is also way down. And my arms, those little “sausages of shame,” are starting to look good at last, for the first time in my life.
“I’m using your bodyweight exercises, and changing things around a bit each day to give my muscles new challenges. I’m exercising about a half hour a day in the morning, that’s it. No cardio. I’m 36 years old; usually after 30, you have trouble losing weight, but I’m doing great!
“I just wanted to let you know of my progress. I’m guessing that many women out there are like me: a few stubborn extra pounds hanging around that just won’t go away.”
I just wanted to say that a few weeks ago I purchased your body sculpting program for women and it’s fantastic. I’m a runner, yet I always felt flabby and out of shape in certain areas, but after only 3 weeks of doing these exercises I’m already noticing a difference in my body tone and posture.
I’ve also actually enjoyed the exercises… which is very unusual for me! I like the challenge it brings me and after only 15 minutes of doing these, I feel like I’ve been for a long run!
Thanks again for a great program.
All the best,
I have been using your Body Sculpting Bodyweight Exercises for Women program for about 2 months now and I LOVE it!!! I’ve never been one to want to go to the gym (so I didn’t) and was very excited to learn about your program. I’ve always done yoga but since I’ve started your program I feel great and notice my body getting stronger each week!
Los Angeles, CA
“Thank you so much for a wonderful exercise program. I have to admit that I was highly skeptical about the claims made at your web site. At 47 years old, 5’3” and 196 pounds, with painful knees and broken down feet, and extremely out of shape, I doubted that there was much that could help me. I’ve tried many different types of exercise in the past, but instead of improving my body condition and my stamina, nothing changed–and sometimes I even ended up more tired.
“Enter your program. I have never seen anything like it and the results are amazing–and fast! I ordered the program and received it about 3 weeks ago. At the most, I used the program 2-3 times a week and didn’t change anything about my eating habits. I have noticed amazing results and am especially enjoying a huge surge of energy like I haven’t experienced in years. My husband noticed after the first 3 workouts that my body was responding and changing. He can’t believe how much energy I have and how much I can now get done–and with no pain or tiredness. He’s always been very physically fit, but I have him beat with energy levels these days.
“Last night, my brother-in-law complimented me on losing a lot of weight. Now, for this man to notice anything is quite amazing–and compliments are even more rare. I’ve definitely lost inches. I only wish I had measured myself and taken pictures before I began.
“Thank you, thank you, thank you, for giving me a program that finally works. I can’t praise it enough. Best wishes and much success! ”
“I ordered your program this past summer I got the dvds, the book the whole 9 yards. I needed to lose the extra baby fat I put on with my son and was having problems getting rid of the last 15 pounds. I love it because its so quick and simple and I can just get it done before my son attacks me and wants to play. I mostly do the fab five I change it up a little when I have extra time. I am now skinnier than I was before I had my son. It’s great!
“Thank you so much!”
“I’m lovin’ your Body Sculpting Bodyweight Exercises for Women. It is truly helping me become fit – love it, love it, love it! Can’t imagine getting through some stressful days without it. What your Body Sculpting exercises have done for the entire outlook on my life is HUGE! I had almost given up hope and felt nothing could help me get rid of my heavy thighs and butt – not dieting, not exercising, not fasting – nothing. How fortunate I am to have found your system!
“I am over 40 and have been out of shape for the past 10 years. What a struggle it has been to ‘figure out’ what to do so that I could lose weight, get in shape and feel good. Not until I found your Body Sculpting system did anything work for me. I tried cardio – well I got more endurance, but it did not help change my body. Now, I look forward to working out everyday. I feel great after your workouts, especially the lower body exercises. My legs and butt have always been heavy and now, finally, little by little, I am getting such exciting results! Now I’m losing inches on my legs, and my arms and stomach from doing your sculpting exercises. I feel sensational after working out – my body and my mind!
“Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!”

“I just received your program last week and all I can say is, “WOW!” I finally found a workout routine designed especially for women and I absolutely love it. I have done the whole male weight training thing and looked pretty buff for a while, which wasn1t exactly the feminine hourglass look that I wanted. Got bored with that and got hurt a few times, so I started taking yoga and pilates classes. When my schedule changed and I found myself traveling a lot and not having much time to work around the class schedule, I started going to the gym less and less.
“I just started doing the exercises last week and I have already lost 3 lbs and 1 inch off my waist. I have NEVER gotten these kinds of results from any other workout routine I did in the past, no matter what it was. I feel great and have time to do it every day. As a matter of fact, I took the book to my office and now have 3 other women doing some variation of your ‘Fab Five’ exercises. We all have varying degrees of fitness so we went thru the book together and each picked out the exercises that best suited our needs. 4 women, 4 VERY different fitness needs, and we all found a workout routine that worked for each of us. Now that IS amazing since we all can1t agree on just 1 place for lunch.
“Today I went to the gym to cancel my membership so they sent me to the ‘consultation area.’ After a few minutes, a woman came out with a stack of papers and started asking all kinds of questions about my fitness needs and why I wanted to cancel my membership. I know they were trying to get me to change my mind and that’s ok, but I just kinda smiled at her and told her that I found a workout routine that takes less than 15 minutes a day, I can do anywhere, whether in a hotel room, at the office or at the park, and it cost me pennies compared to their $50 a month gym membership. She just looked at me and put her head down and finished filling out the paperwork with no more questions.
“Your program has not only gotten me re-motivated to exercise, but it also saved me a bundle of money that I can put towards something else. The timing couldn’t have been better either. Beach weather is here again in Florida and I plan to ‘look great at 38’ in my bikini. I am already planning on ordering 4 more books for the girls at work as well as my sister who travels a lot. We are all near 40 or over 40 and this program seems to be just what we were all looking for. Thanks A Million!”
“I just want you to know how much of a difference your program has made in my life. I have never felt as good as I do right now at this moment, and the positive energy flourishes even more every single day. I feel stronger today than I did yesterday, mentally and physically. The brain fog has cleared. I can’t wait to get home each afternoon so that I can do my exercises. In fact, I have so much energy that I have found myself needing to go out for a run because I can’t sit down on the couch – I’ve got to move, and there is just so much to get out there to see and accomplish. And this energy and self-confidence has been there all along. I kept pushing it back by lounging around the house and filling my body with junk. I was purposely eating bad foods at night so that I would feel sleepy (lousy) in order to go to bed. Not anymore! I have gone from sleeping over 8 hours a night to only 6-7 hours per night because that’s all I need. And I find myself wanting to stay up later because I have so much energy, but I retire because I know that my body does need time to recharge.
“I have been doing the exercises for about a month. I didn’t weigh or measure myself immediately before, but I do know that I have lost at least 9 pounds and I have gained a tremendously wonderful perspective of my self image. I still have much more room for improvement, and I really don’t care about what the scale says. Before I began, all of my slacks were tight. Now they are already getting loose. The transition that I have made in such a short amount of time is remarkable. Your system is giving me the guidance to truly shape a body that reflects what I have on the inside – strength and determination and the willingness to always lend a hand. Yesterday I found myself pushing harder than I ever have before and I was talking to myself and really unleashing that positive energy, and I knew then that I will not be turning back – no burnout, no injuries, no excuses! Something just clicked yesterday, and I am positive that I am on the right path.
“I look forward to each day as it blossoms so that I can reap all of the benefits that this world has to offer. Thanks for helping me grow.”
Sara R. Waterbury
“I am a 50 year old, overweight, woman using your Body Sculpting Bodyweight Exercises for Women. The first day I couldn’t even do 1 of the Fab 5 Exercises. Now I can do 15 to 25 repetitions for everything. Thanks again for such a great program. My body is changing, becoming more toned especially the arms and legs, and I feel so much better and have so much more energy.”
“When I began Eddie’s program my 50 yr old body was reasonably weight proportionate and my fitness regimen consisted of some aerobic walking and an occasional yoga class. I lacked muscle tone in my torso and my arms and stomach were embarrasingly flabby. I remember my first day of training where I felt like I was starting at ground zero as I could barely muster a push up, or do some of the exercises for very long. Eddie promised me that my body would respond quickly to these specific exercises, so I pushed through my early inertia and stayed on course. Within a short time, I could visibly see my body changing quickly, and my strength and stamina continued to increase. In no time, my body looked dramatically different! The middle aged sag was gone, and I felt young and vital. The change in my arms – toned and strong was amazing. Very quickly I was working out at full tilt, and completing my sets of exercise powerfully. These exercises have successfully created a makeover of my body. This program has been a myth buster for me in that I reversed in a very short space of time what I thought was just the inevitable decline of my body. Thanks Eddie. I can wholehearedly say that this program is amazing.”
Lexi Parrott, MPH, CHT
“The exercises in this program are completely different from what I expected to see in a book on women’s fitness! I am pleasantly surprised. Eddie, you truly live up to your claims! I especially like the fact that you give more than one alternate exercise to start off with and they all work the same way as the main one in the Fab Five group. Thank you for this book and your knowledge of women’s fitness needs and desires!“
“Thank you Eddie for bringing beauty and grace to the day with your Body Sculpting Bodyweight Exercises for Women. I found everything about the book to be emanating something I can only describe as pure love and energy: the words, photos, logical presentation of materials, and greatest of all the gorgeous gleem of your faces. I feel the radiance, right out of those pages, making me want to emulate all that fab-action going on in there. Plus of course I want a radiant face, stream-lined abs and smooth muscles! The photos’ spectacular backdrops seem to add a vibrational effect that bolstered my confidence and ability in a ‘new setting.’
“Plus, with your having filled-in the important blanks as to why to I’m doing them, the exercises become far more enjoyable. But some of the exercises seem to need no reason other than they simply look fun! A lot of the exercises have new meanings for me with your concise descriptions. And, I’m wondering what ladies in their ‘light mind’ wouldn’t want to get right into those exercises asap
“So, thank you so much for ‘raising me up’ to a great sculpting session this morning. I found the ab exercises are something that I actually enjoy! I found explanations of why I am doing them important for my mental and spiritual well-being. And a special thanks for the ballet exercises and providing your straight-talking diet plan.
“I am absolutely impressed with the book, and I was absolutely pleased with my progress in meeting suggested reps. I’m really looking forward to advancing into all the exercises, plus the exciting list of sample workouts!
“I hope everyone will enjoy the love and warmth you have shared when they find themselves hopping into and getting comfortable with this breathing, sculpting, ‘wave-of-love’ of a workout book.”
“Eddie, your program is amazing. I had been working out at the gym five days a week for two years and basically plateaued. I started your workout and in just two weeks I lost weight and saw significant definition all over my body. Working out for only a short period I became stronger and had much more endurance than ever before. I am forty and I have abs of a twenty year old. Thanks, Eddie- finally a program that I can do at home or take on the road that really works!”
“I have your program and love it. I recommend it to every woman I know who is struggling to lose weight, especially us moms who struggle with the extra stubborn post baby pounds. Thanks so much.”
“Your book Body Sculpting Bodyweight Exercises for Women is everything you promised and some…it really delivers! Keep up the great work – women need real health and fitness strategies like this that actually work . Kind regards and best wishes,”
Taunton, United Kingdom
“I can’t say enough about training with Eddie Baran. First of all, who gets to do that??? The workouts were purely exhilarating. Due to previous injuries that included a shattered right arm and neurosurgery, I’ve never in my life been able to do a pushup, even a modified ‘girl’ pushup without a lot of pain. After training with Eddie, I was able to execute thirty ‘man’ pushups at one time – now THAT was inspiring. Eddie has a way of finding the strongest capabilities of a person, and then inviting her to become it.
“The exercises are something that do not occur to most average minds. The benefits I got were many: I conquered mental and physcial resistances, greatly increased my endurance, strength, and now have a feeling of being able to overcome anything. The wonderful combination of exercises, from explosive to cardio-aerobic combinations, is GREAT! I am an avid downhill skiier and at one time raced at a high level. After working out regularly in this manner, I now have zero muscle stress or pain when I ski – the leg workouts were perfect for preparing me for such an intense activity. This is a brilliantly devised program for getting optimal well-being and high energy. This stuff rules!”
West Linn, OR
“Thanks for making the best exercise DVD and book. I love it! Finally, no fluff, just the info I had been looking for—the proper form, why, what it does. Perfect. I had been doing yoga for a couple of years, so I am familiar with some of the exercises, but you take them to a different level.
Thanks for the help!”

“You are SO right about exercising anywhere. The exercises featured in Body Sculpting Bodyweight Exercises for Women can be done at work. I sit in front of the computer all day and 8 hours a day on my bum does not a healthy body make, especially at the fabulous age of 44. When at work and waiting for my documents to come off of the printer, I can do some of your exercises.
“No one knows I am doing it, but they are noticing the changes the Body Sculpting Exercises are making in my appearance, my health, and in my total outlook.
“No longer chained to the gym or resigned to be unhealthy, I am a more fun person to be around. When asked, I tell them all about you and your program. I have learned from my mistakes, too. I will direct them to your website, pass on an email from you – but NO ONE gets my book. Thanks for all you do. Keep up the good work.
“Blessings to you and your family,”
“I received your Body Sculpting Bodyweight Exercises for Women program four weeks ago and just had to send you a thank you note. I was familiar with a few of these movements already, so I was surprised at how FUN your variations on the theme proved to be. I feel both physically and mentally totally satisfied after each daily workout. After only four weeks on your wonderful program, my muscles look more toned and have that elongated, feminine look I love. In fact, I would recommend this program to any and all women, no matter what their level is.
“I wish I had this program when I started out. The variety alone eliminates boredom and keeps my mind fully engaged. Not to mention the awesome photography! Every page has a joyful and relaxing quality. It’s exactly what I want – a workout that keeps me calm while I get strong.
“Eddie, you have created a masterpiece. Thank you for enhancing my day – every day. And doing it so simply and beautifully.”

“I received your book Body Sculpting Bodyweight Exercises for Women a few weeks ago and got right into it. Am happy to report that I’m reaping the benefits of this awesome program, physically and mentally. Thank you for putting together such a GREAT PROGRAM – I’ve loved body-weight exercises since I was a kid in gymnastics class at school, but mistakenly went off them since I got ‘older and wiser’ and instead made the error of opting for cardio, aerobics, weights, etc. Your book has made me do a very happy U-turn in my exercise routine. I’m all the way over here in India so your program is a real God-send. And I really appreciate the suggested rountines given – otherwise, mixing and matching the correct exercises together can be tricky.
“Thank you so much! And God bless.
Eddie, your book is ABSOLUTELY FOR EVERYONE!!!!!!!!! I am so pleased with it, I read through it all for the first time today. It is awesomely good! I am a full time firefighter and last night had a long 24 hour shift. I got only about 2 hours of sleep the entire night…. then I got called back in for another 20 hours at the station. This all adds up to a very exhausted, grumpy, frustrated me. But then I pulled out my new Body Sculpting book and tried out a short test session…. I feel like a MILLION BUCKS! I feel like I got a full nights sleep even though I got hardly any! Thanks so MUCH EDDIE!!!!!!!! The exercises are fun, challenging and a kick butt workout. I am sure it would give any guy a run for his money too! If that doesn’t convince you ALL to buy it, then I will come give you a kick in the pants! Happy working out!”
“Body Sculpting Bodyweight Exercises for Women is a fantastic course for anyone wanting to establish a full-body workout regimen that doesn’t require a gym membership. It’s a perfect marriage between ballet, pilates and gymnastics. Many of the exercises are difficult, but Eddie Baran is kind enough to give us variations that I’d feel comfortable issuing as a home program in a physical therapy clinic. I’ve added these exercises to my own personal workout sessions and getting great results!”

“I lifted weights and ran for years with good results but after 12 years of lifting, I developed chronic shoulder pain As I couldn’t lift with the weights I’d become accustomed, I looked around for other strengthening options so I started doing your bodyweight exercises. I love the whole body feeling of the exercises with their emphasis on both flexibility and strength. The program is so simple and easy to use. I really like that there are different options for different levels of fitness. Thanks, Eddie, for getting me moving again. I felt healthier and more energetic immediately!“
