CCher once said that Meryl Streep was an acting shark, and something tells me that, were she to spend time with Craig Ramsay, she’d call him a fitness fin too. Ramsay eats up exercise the way others eat up pop culture, and a conversation with him moves from interval training to weight loss to diet to fitness psychology to recognizing every individual’s different exercise needs—in five minutes time. There are no fitness subjects Ramsay shies away from him, and like that great English teacher you had back in high school, they all seem to fascinate him with equal intensity.
Ramsay’s surfing the fitness waters, big-time, with a new book, Anatomy of Stretching, new fitness Apps to download on iTunes or Google Play, and, coming soon, a fitness blog! Hit his website for details, where you can also purchase autographed copies of the books, the Apps, and sign up for fitness tips and giveaways.
The Apps are like smart phone encyclopedias, each one designed for a specific part of your workout. Bring them to the gym, or wherever you flex, find your muscle group App, and let the ”Woof” Man guide you through the grind. Forget phone sex or phoning home, phone fitness is the new black … and gray.
Anatomy of Stretching is nothing short of amazing, a 160-page book devoted entirely to one of the most commonly ignored aspects of workout training. Everything is stuffed in there, from toe stretches to tips on how to combat the effects of aging, and Ramsay’s fit-form shape illustrates all the right moves. Whether you’re an exercise pro, or just getting your feet wet, Ramsay’s one-two-three punch of Apps, book, and blog is the summer blockbuster you can’t afford to miss.
