"Dr. Maffetone is one of the most sought-after endurance coaches in the world."
"The great conductor Arturo Toscanini once remarked, 'Tradition is the last bad performance.' Like Toscanini, Philip Maffetone questions some of the weary tenets of performance training. His stable of athletes is perhaps the purest expression of his craft."--John Howard, bicycling legend and coach
"Dr. Maffetone is a modern day medicine man whose views, practices, and techniques extend far beyond the turbocharged adrenaline of the exercise kingdom."--William R. Katovsky, founding editor of INSIDE TRIATHLON and TRIATHLETE magazines and two-time Ironman
"The only difference between training to win the Ironman and training for life is the distance. The principles are the same. I used Phil's workout structure during my competitive years and was able to win the Ironman six times. I still use Phil's training principles to keep me fit for life."--Mark Allen
