It is with great pleasure-indeed, honor-that I write this foreword. I have been a friend and a fan of Beth Horn ever since I first met her. It is rare to encounter someone who truly strives to be the best they can be on every front, and who also has the desire to help others do the same. Beth Horn is that special person! It is from her many years of perseverance towards excellence that Beth has acquired the experience and knowledge gather in this book. Beth is a fitness star dedicate to real fitness on every level. I once saw someone wearing a T-shirt that read, Yoga is more than make an asana out of yourself. In the same way that yoga is more than the asanas (postures), Beth exemplifies that fitness is more than having a great physique. Beth teaches us that fitness is a practice that involves your whole being--discipline, courage,inner strength and mental clarity. She inspires us to feel the best that we can and to be all that we are. Looking good is the result of feeling good and feeling good is the result of practicing the tools that she shares with us in this fine book. Beth is the most authentically positive person that I know. She shines (as you can see from her photos). her light is more than just her physical beauty; it is a well-developed attitude of inner strength, confidence and self-esteem. Beth reminds us that ultimate fitness is available to everyone. In this book she shares her path to the total fitness that will help you realize your dreams. Thank you, Beth! --Rev. Steven Hartman
