Royce Gracie. How does this 175-pound man defeat champion martial artists weighing 200, 300, and even 400 pounds? Technique is part of it, but technique is nothing if the body can't deliver. Royce's body delivers, because of his fanatical devotion to fitness. Now Royce has teamed up with fitness coach James Strom to create the most perfectly customized program for martial artists ever designed. Strom, a man famous for guiding superstar athletes to breakthrough performances, has worked with Royce to develop a unique program of strength training, cardiovascular routines, flexibility exercises, and nutrition. Superfit brings this program to martial artists of all types for the first time, allowing them to raise their games to a level never imagined. In addition to full workout plans for beginner, intermediate, and black belt practitioners. Whether you are a beginning martial artist wanting to sharpen your body and mind, a black-belt instructor looking for new ways to improve and motivate your students, or an athlete interested in building a body of lethal effectiveness, Superfit is your ticket to unstoppable success. Royce Gracie shocked the world when he entered the Ultimate Fighting Championship in 1993 as an unknown and defeated much larger opponents in record time. He went on to win two more UFCs and other world-class events. He trains top-level martial artists, teaches international seminars, and continues to fight professionally. James Strom is an elite fitness trainer who has guided such athletes as Keyshawn Johnson, Andre Ryson, and the USC Trojans to the top of their sports.
