"This book will be called the bible of movement and nutrition." --Eric Serrano, M.D.
About the Author
As a Holistic Health Practitioner, Neuromuscular Therapist and corrective exercise specialist, Paul Chek has developed a unique approach to wellness and education that ties in concepts from each of these fields. By treating the body as a whole system and finding the main cause of a problem, Paul has been successful where traditional methods have consistently failed.
He founded the C.H.E.K Institute in California as a focal point for the education of elite health and exercise professionals. The C.H.E.K Institute runs four advanced certification programs and provides numerous training videos and courses to students worldwide. An internationally acclaimed presenter and consultant, Pauls clients have included: the Los Angeles Chiropractic College, Johnson & Johnson, the conditioning staff of the Chicago Bulls, Australias Canberra Raiders, the US Air Force Academy, professional and amateur athletes from a variety of sports, as well as numerous rehabilitation clients. Paul is a contributing writer to many industry publications and websites and has authored several books, including The Golf Biomechanics Manual and Movement That Matters.

Thankfully, Chek has left his relatively, incoherent babbling about spirituality to his Youtube channels. It's not that what Chek says isn't true or dumb but is something that is very, very difficult to put into words. Things that are more easily measured (dieting, movement, balances and imbalances, etc) are what he stays focused on. I believe things about spirituality tend to be more personal experienced, and we use art and religious language (bathed in the blood of the lamb) to communicate what (or the emotions) we've experienced to other people.
Chek's bread and butter is with movement and muscles, and you get a glimpse into his philosophy and holistic approach to life in this book. Chek has done a good job distilling the essentials into a relatively small book where each page oozes with essential info.
I give this 4 stars because I wish his other items (DVD's, Books, Articles, etc.) were readily available on Amazon since there is more to learn from this man and I think he can give us something better, thicker and meatier. Maybe a specially enhanced authors version?
From circadian rhythms to the importance of eating organically, to why cardio can make you fatter and resistance training is so important, this book has it all.
Plus a nice set of questionnaires designed to help you create your own personalized program.
Yes Paul Chek has (deservedly) taken heat for his program design and his obsessive (and erroneous) reliance on the importance of the transverse abdominal muscles importance in spinal stabilisation, but that doesn't detract from an exceptional read and a book that absolutely should be on every fitness professionals shelf.
