The Maffetone Method Will Show You How Simple It Can Be To Feel Good Again
Here's what people have said about Philip Maffetone's approach to health and fitness:
"Dr. Maffetone's system goes beyond dealing with symptoms; he looks at health and fitness as an integrated balance. He deals with the whole picture clearly and directly. Fascinating and illuminating--and I feel great!"--James Taylor, singer, recording artist
"I appreciate your contribution to both my own physical health and to others."--Anthony Robbins, best-selling author
"A sensible and balanced approach to better fitness and health."--Kent Johnston, strength and conditioning boach, Green Bay Packers
Eclectic, insightful, inspirational--doctor and coach Philip Maffetone has helped some of the world's premier athletes achieve astonishing results. But he's equally interested in the athlete inside each of us. In The Maffetone Method, he destroys the "no pain, no gain" training myth and introduces a revolutionary fitness program that not only engenders peak performance but can help you enjoy the most vibrant health of your life. Clearly, simply, and sensibly, Dr. Maffetone explains the benefits of aerobic fitness, proper nutrition, stress reduction, and even choosing the right exercise shoes (expensive is not better!). The Maffetone Method will show you how simple it can be to feel good again.

Quite a few friends and teammates gave me a hard time when I began the Maffetone 2-week test, and furthermore teased me when I slowed my pace to only train within my aerobic capacity. I'll admit, I was different from the pack and eating like gazelle in the wild. But staying strong and following the plan paid off in the end. Not only did I drop a significant amount of unnecessary weight, but my energy improved, my mood improved, and my split times and race times dropped significantly. His method takes dedication, but it's no gimmick. It works, and works really well.
E.g. I reduced my time on a (hilly) 6.1 mile course from 1:07 to :49. Yes, lost some weight and all, but really felt like I was on the raggedy edge -- stiff and sore and wondering "how many more of these runs do I have in me?"
Most of my gains came from just having a better idea of how hard to push and when and just getting better at sucking it up.
This book has given me some fresh ideas about how to train in a way that will actually make me healthier and fitter, and not just more of a grinder.
The CW always talks about what Maffetone calls the aerobic zone as the "weight loss zone". Well I was never really overweight, so I wasn't too interested in that.
Maffetone explains that it is much more than that, it is the zone where your aerobic system can actually improve, thus improving your endurance and work capacity.
Having it put in those functional, fitness related terms makes me suddenly willing to work in that zone, and hopefully get the functional gains that I am after.
Also, I really had never had anyone articulate the distinction between fit and healthy. I've been that fit/unhealthy person at times, and just couldn't articulate where I was. He expresses the concept very well.
The issue I have is that I am a big believer in strength training and want to maintain that part of my training. That will be trick to integrate I think, but the concepts he offers here I think make it possible.
So this will obviously require patience to show results. Hopefully I can demonstrate that. The fact that these workouts are not grueling will make that more likely!
Then I found Phil's book lying around my house. I started reading and it all made so much sense. I SLOWED DOWN although it was so hard for me to run that slow at first. And I changed to a low carb diet for the first time in my life. 3 months later I have leaned up, regained muscle tone and am beginning to be able to increase my pace. I now realize that this illness took a much heavier toll than I imagined and I am being patient and will work my way back in a healthy way. I've bought 3 more copies for my kids. I am very excited about all the new information!
