From CelebrityPress:

As we age, we often allow ourselves to get caught up in the details of daily life, even bad habits – to the detriment of our health and well-being. As we pass a mirror, or notice that we only fit into our clothing with a shoehorn, we register a ‘reality check’ that shouts … “Change Your Habits!”

The select group of Celebrity Experts® in this book are dedicated to changing your habits of nutrition and exercise. They come from both traditional as well as non-traditional angles to review and advise you on the more common factors for burning fat and building muscle – in language we can understand.

After such a successful release Rob Colasanti will be recognized by The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors™, an organization that honors authors from many of the leading independent best-seller lists.

About Rob Colasanti:

Rob Colasanti officially began his martial arts training in early 1986 at John Graden’s USA Karate, in St. Petersburg, FL. He borrowed his grandfather’s red, Craftsman lawnmower and became the neighborhood lawn boy to pay for his first 18 months of tuition.

By the rank of green belt, he had already joined the school’s professional staff. Then, for the next nine years, seven days a week, Colasanti worked in the trenches as a topnotch Program Director, private lesson teacher and Chief Instructor – as USA Karate evolved into a successful multi- school operation with an award-winning television show.

When Colasanti became the first official employee to the National Association of Professional Martial Artists (NAPMA) in the beginning of 1995, he was a young third-degree black belt with very little knowledge of how the industry worked. But through his dedication, integrity and passion, he quickly evolved into a respected industry leader, and eventually became President of the premier martial arts business association of the twentieth century – NAPMA.

He is no longer running NAPMA and Martial Arts Professional Magazine. However, he has emerged as a significant leader of the next generation of martial arts professionals, and is poised to become one of the primary forces to propel the industry to an even greater position of public prominence and respect.

Mr. Colasanti is helping to write the next chapter of the modern history of the martial arts industry, and the story of Mr. Colasanti’s leadership and influence are destined to fill many more pages in the years to come. He may be reached at
