Here’s the set-up:

One of the greatest contributions you can make to society, no matter where you live, is to be healthy – both physically and mentally. It is one of the best ways to take pride in yourself. Learning how to have a six-pack can build confidence in all areas of life.

If you live in a bustling city or in the leafy suburbs, the one thing that everyone has in common is publicly available FREE fitness equipment. I’m not talking about dedicated weight machines, but instead an assortment of fences, staircases, ledges, park benches for workouts that involve nothing but your own body weight.

Why? It’s all about getting back to basics, and using the tools that the great outdoors provides us, to improve and enhance our lives and to become urban warriors of fitness! You owe it to yourself to expand your workout regimen, and utilize your urban environment to achieve optimum health and vitality.

It’s all about balance with nature, and using your body’s weight to get in shape. Using your own bodyweight can be challenging, but will help you realize your own potential. Remember those school days of playing football, basketball, baseball or field hockey? The workouts for training consisted of nothing but jumping jacks, push-ups, leg lifts and sit-ups. It worked – right?

No matter where you live, how old you are or what shape you are in, outdoor exercises using your own body weight is the answer. You can workout anytime and anywhere, because your workout equipment is always available and with you. It is resistance training at its best. Your body has its own built-in, natural limits to help you reach your fitness goals.

One of the most important goals to achieve is muscle. Muscle keeps you strong, young, burns calories and protects your joints. The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn – even just sitting here reading this book. Muscle creates a furnace in your body that speeds up your metabolism.

Using your body is not the only way to add or change resistance. Adjusting the angles in your exercises can shock your system and transform your body even more quickly. Staying fit is all about lifestyle and once it becomes a part of your life, it becomes effortless and produces incredible changes in your physique.

Eating right, staying hydrated, sleeping well and getting fit, using your own body for workouts outdoors or in. It doesn’t matter!

Here’s the set-up:

To a corrupt chief of police intent on maintaining his power at all costs, part-time PI Declan “Mac” MacManus is a problem that must finally be addressed. Cursed with an unwavering sense of right and wrong, and a fierce loyalty to his few friends, Mac has become known as someone the working class of Southampton can turn to in times of desperate need. On a rain-swept night in October, Mac witnesses to a brutal homicide, but he has learned that nothing on the East End is ever what it seems. Determined to hunt down an elusive hired killer before he can strike again, Mac is reunited with what is left of a prominent family he once knew well. But something more—something darker than Mac could have possibly foreseen—is at play here, and as a long-hidden secret threatens to emerge, Mac once again becomes the only hope for justice in a town that all too clearly belongs to the rich and powerful.

The Poisoned Rose was a stunning and wondrous debut, and The Bone Orchard only confirmed Daniel Judson’s artistry and unique style, but those two dark gems do not prepare the reader for the huge leap forward that is The Gin Palace. The final outing of Declan “Mac” MacManus, one of our most compelling PIs, shows an author at the very height of his dizzying power. Fresh, vibrant, startling, and beautifully rendered, Judson’s The Gin Palace Trilogy breathes a whole new energy into the genre. — Ken Bruen, Author of Headstone

Here’s the set-up:
Knowles is a fast moving tale of a warrior which starts out in Texas in the 1870′s.

Here’s the set-up:

Resilience is that trait that empowers us to not merely manage life’s inevitable challenges and detours, but to bounce back stronger than ever. It’s about having the willingness to pursue stretch goals, the courage to get up when you’ve been knocked down, and the tenacity of spirit to embrace all that makes life worth living.

To regard adversity as an opportunity for personal growth may seem idealistic; especially in the midst of typically overloaded schedules and the noise and stress of everyday living … but the hard truth is that from time to time we are going to stumble; encounter unexpected detours, and fail. No matter how much we try to outrun or sidestep adversity, it’s going to happen. The question then becomes not how to avoid obstacles, but how to use them to our advantage.

The good news is that research has proven that resilience is not a genetic gift for the lucky few. It is a set of skills that can be practiced and mastered over time. Stepping Stones to Greater Resilience is a self directed learning guide to help you strengthen the characteristics that enable you to avoid getting sidetracked by life’s inevitable challenges and thrive as a result of the experience.
