Are you ready to be a contender? Sly’s action-oriented program for getting fit and eating right is a revealing portrait of one of Hollywood’s biggest slaves
Sly Moves―part candid autobiography, part nuts-and-bolts training manual, part motivational handbook― is a refreshingly sensible guide to getting immediate results that last a lifetime. It’s also a provocative inside look at the trials of a body-conscious star rising in the most image-conscious industry in the world.
The truth is, Sly’s personal battle to stay in shape has been as tough as any fight he’s waged on screen. The book begins with a very personal history of Sylvester Stallone’s famous physique, as the Rocky star shares never-before-told stories about his being bullied as a child, finding comfort and strength in the gym, and then later, the wild ride of fad diets, crash-training regimens and workout disasters that fringed on obsession. Sly knows what works and what definitely doesn’t, and these experiences formed Sly’s unique fitness and nutrition plan. Part 2 consists of Sly’s program for getting physically fit without sacrificing life’s other pleasures. All he requires is three hours a week―that’s all Sly needs―for a total body workout, an engaging regimen involving all the major muscle groups and aerobic fitness. The step by step program includes four different levels of exercise: classic, advanced, women’s, and for those who dare, The Sly Challenge, a hardcore session pushing it to the max.
Sly has tried every diet imaginable and so in the Sly Moves nutrition plan he highlights a unique meal plan for a lifetime of good eating. He offers his unique perspective on what works and what doesn’t and offers an alternative for health-conscious readers who want great-tasting satisfying food that can become a way of life. In the section Gonna Fly Now inspires and encourages readers to make Sly Moves part of a long-term picture of health, fitness and well-being. This motivational section includes separate chapters on everything from setting and keeping goals to relaxation techniques to lessons learned from his reality-based boxing show The Contender.
