Although I never expected to drag myself out of the house and go for a run, after I finished those first three rounds at the high school track in my village, everything changed. I was so exhausted-which was an indicator of how lacking my physical fitness was-but after all the discomfort, itching, and rash in various places due to friction from excess fat, for the first time, I felt renewed, and memories of running and coming in first place in high school reminded me of how I used to be compared to how I was after those three laps around the track. It made my eyes water; I was alone in the middle of the track under an April sky full of stars when tears of mixed feelings started pouring down from my eyes. Emotionally and psychologically, it was a turning point for me, and it also made me even more determined to become that lean, mean running machine I used to be. It was right there in that single moment that I saw the path I had to follow.

An exercise professional himself, with over 20 years' experience in the fitness industry, Orridge has trained thousands of exercise professionals, always underpinning his techniques and teachings with the latest scientific research into exercise, health and fitness. Simple, effective and scientifically proven. Forget the crash diets and exercise fads, here's what you really need to know.
