About the Author

Taylor Hay invented Synergetics because of his injured knees and back and the need to create an exercise with no impact that didn't put undue stress on his joints and muscles. Young at age 72, you can see how Synergetics has worked for him! He and his wife, Joanna Hay (who lost 30 pounds with Synergetics) have been teaching their exercises throughout the US and overseas since 1985.

The exercises are truely amazing and I am speaking here from my own experience. I started the exercises half heartedly - but was pleasantly surprised to see and feel the results in only a couple of weeks. The exercises look so simple but yet gives the benefits of aerobics , stretching and weight training - all in one package and in only about 12 minutes. I have tried yoga etc earlier but this stuff is the best I yet got.

I first encountered this book about sixteen years ago when losing weight was not an issue for me. I did want to be in better shape, though, and in three months of using the Synergetics program, I lost seven pounds and a dress size and got compliments from friends.

Somewhere I heard that, in order to get into a smaller dress size, you have to lose twelve pounds, so my assumption is that I gained some lean muscle (muscle weighs more than fat) in the process.

After all that, what did I do? Why, I stopped using the Synergetics program because I wanted to go on and prove that I could get super-fit by lifting, pushing, struggling, and toughing it out like a good brainwashed fitness enthusiast.

Sixteen years and numerous strains and sprains later, I have started over again with Synergetics because the ensuing years have brought stress, bad health habits, and eighty pounds that I absolutely need to get rid of.

I have been doing it again for only a week, and the anecdotal evidence is that I am sleeping better, moving faster and more gracefully, and walking with much better balance. After only one week. I have every confidence that, three months from now, I won't have any super-wow stories of dramatic weight loss and transformation into Michelle Pfeiffer's twin, but I will be a different, healthier person.

Synergetics is, as far as I am concerned, not at all for those who have anything to "prove" about their fitness. It's definitely for those who want simply to do something good for themselves and get a good result.

I have been doing these exercises for about a month and absolutely feel great. I also have the video and was wondering if there were any additional videos with more advanced moves. I never thought that these simple moves could make me feel so much better and give me increased energy.

While the name "Synergetics" will not roll off the tongue easily (it sounds like something I would have failed in high school),I love this book. The bookstores are littered with countless fitness programs that promise a low impact workout that you can fit into your busy lifestyle but somehow we never do. Synergetics is different. It's fun, easy, do-able.

Authors Taylor and Joanna Hay (she is the pretty-in-pink woman on the cover) appear not as obnoxious exercise gurus but everyday people like you and me who just so happened to have discovered a fountain of youth. Incorporating such elements as Tai Chi, Synergetics rhythmic twisting and turning at just two 12 minute intervals a day gave my abused bag of bones a tingle it had not felt in a long time. Taylor claims that this idea came to him in a dream and I have no doubts since the movements seem natural and graceful. The body here is its own exercise machine. A machine that we can use anytime, anywhere. What a concept!

I would love the Hay's to update this book (along with their new handy tool, the Pocket Gym). Their "fabulous faces" alone-exercises to give you face a youthful appearance without surgery- is a nifty concept that will always have customers.
