About the Author

Jordan D. Metzl, MD, is a nationally recognized sports medicine physician at Hospital for Special Surgery, in New York City. His practice treats more than 20,000 patients and he is regularly voted among New York’s top sports medicine doctors by New York magazine. He lectures and teaches all over the world and has appeared on the Today show and Good Morning America.

Dr. Metzl specializes in nonsurgical treatment, working to help patients get back to their favorite activities as soon as is safely possible. He also strives to be a positive example for his patients, teaching his "Iron Strength" workout classes on weekends and maintaining his own fitness at an elite level. "I love being fit and active, and I like to encourage others to do the same," he says. "I feel like being a role model for my patients really helps me communicate with them better. I want to keep them on the field because I know how much better I feel when I’m out there doing what I love to do. Fitness keeps me injury-free and helps me in all aspects of my life, both inside and outside the office."
 
Mike Zimmerman is a contributing editor to Men’s Health and coauthor of The Men’s Health Big Book of Food & Nutrition and The Impact! Body Plan.

Just got this book in the mail today. First thing I'll say is that the quality of this book is excellent. Pages are large, paper it's printed on is not cheap. (For this book I wouldn't recommend the Kindle version since it's something you'll reference while working out and/or healing. Plus, the graphics are outstanding.) It's well organized with a large section devoted to injuries types, and how to prevent them and/or resolve them. (About 60%) Graphics of muscles/bones is very detailed. The rest of the book has excellent workout programs with nicely detailed graphics and how-to instructions.

I'm a runner and I will get much use of this book. But you don't have to be a runner as it's designed for all types of athletes. (Both beginner and advanced) Highly recommended!

I saw Dr Metzl speak at corporate event and he had great advice. I spent $13 on this book, and so far have increased the range of motion of my neck, improved plantar fasciitis, have my husband doing stretches to improve his IT band, and my father-in-law working on his ankle issues as well. Great to know how to prevent and heal those things that plague active people once they pass 30.

I got this book last week and I've already referred to it twice. It's extremely comprehensive, yet perfectly accessible and easy to navigate. Having used the Internet as my source before, I value having all of this information in one reputable source and appreciate that it comes from the viewpoint of an expert who really understands the mentality of an athlete. As a new runner, it's a comfort knowing that this book is on my shelves.

This book is great. Its like an owners manual for your body. It simplifies concepts in how your body works and how to think about preparing it for peak condition. Anyone starting out in exercise should be handed this book. And for those already engaged in fitness, it's a great way to re-focus and make sure you're taking care of yourself the right way.

Thanks Dr. Metzl.

I have been watching Dr. Metzl's Runner's World videos for some time. I was so impressed with those, that I bought the book. Following his directions, I've managed to significantly reduce my lower back and hip pain.I highly recommend this book, not just for athletes, but for anybody with any pain problems.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Every New York-area runner who has ever been injured has heard of Dr. Metzl, but most have not visited him because he takes no insurance. However, for the cost of an insurance co-payment, I now have an amazing resource, with easy to understand descriptions and diagrams of all the body parts which tend to go wrong in athletes, and information about how to self-treat or prevent most chronic injuries. (Lest you think this book is all about self-treatment, there is a sidebar in each section indicating what symptoms should require a doctor's visit.)
Because Rodale puts this under the "Men's Health" imprint, the cover has to offer "secrets for a leaner. . .body", but that isn't the focus of the book.
Also, despite its being from "Men's Health", there are women-specific sections, including a good briefing on selecting a sports bra. Preventing one bad sports bra choice would more than pay for this book.

I admit, I am a bit biased because Dr. Metzl is my orthopedist! But the book is truly wonderful. It is well-written, filled with valuable advice and contains several excellent regimes, with really helpful graphics. It is not just for athletes - it is helpful for anyone looking to take care of their body. The advice is particularly good for individuals who love to work out, whether or not they are participating in a sport. Dr. Metzl made me healthy and strong after several painful ski accidents and various other exercise-related injuries. His book is almost as good as seeing him in person (I say almost because he is quite adorable so in person is better!)

When I received Dr. Metzl's book, as a gift from my husband, I truly enjoyed reading it and began exercising with a completely different perspective the very first weekend. The information is put together and communicated with such an ease to understand for anyone who wants to learn how to exercise efficiently, effectively and prevent injuries.
This book is absolutely brilliant. It is not a conglomeration of home remedies or what to use to rid yourself of cramps; what it is, however, is a book written by a distinguished physician who is extremely knowledgeable and readily shares his knowledge succinctly and clearly. The information will benefit athletes and people who might be considering exercise as part of their every day lives.
I was a competitive gymnast in my youth and have been exercising and running for the past 40 years. I have learned, from reading this book, that my warm-up routine was not efficient, sufficient or correct and how strengthening specific areas with specific exercises yields increased strength, success and enjoyment.
Dr. Metzl is a nationally recognized Sports Medicine Physician who has competed in 29 marathons and 9 ironman triathelete competitions. His simple and straightforward approach to strength and training allows the reader to reach his or her level of comfort and competitiveness while staying injury free. The results are an amazing book written by an amazing physician evenly applicable to the novice or competitor. MARCELA SPEERT
