Dear Friend,

Have you ever wondered why the program that helped your best friend put 30lbs on his squat didn’t do the same for you?

Have you ever tried to follow a workout from the pages of a magazine only to see yourself get weaker and smaller… or even worse, fatter?

Have you ever tried your hand at the most popular new training system only to find yourself hobbling around in pain over the next few days… or even worse, injured?

If you answered yes to even one of these questions, then I’ve got some very good news for you.

My name is Eric Cressey, and I am the president of Cressey Performance, a high performance training facility near Boston, MA. We started off small, but we’re now a 15,000-square-foot training facility.

You don’t work your way up to a facility of this size without providing great coaching to your clients. You know why? Because if you aren’t excellent at what you do – constantly updating your training philosophies to give clients the best possible experience and amazing results – you go out of business quickly. Furthermore, you need to be able to coach whoever walks through your doors. Here at CP, we see hundreds of different clients every week.

We’ve coached people from all walks of life, including:

We even have professional athletes who literally move their families across the country to train with us.

As you can imagine, I’ve seen it all, and after working with such a wide variety of people, I’ve come away with one big lesson:

No Two People Move the Same… Including You

When I decided to create a workout system, there was something that was more important to me than anything else: a strong emphasis on personalization.

The problem with other programs out there is they force people to fit into their system of training.Admittedly it’s better than having no direction, but for a lot of people it can make things worse off than they already were.

Let’s take a woman with loose joints (hypermobility) as an example. If she did a lot of aggressive stretching (you know, because the experts are always telling us to stretch), she could easily hurt herself! Conversely, the stiff-as-a-board guy at the cubicle next to her might do those exact same stretches and rid himself of his chronic back pain!

Now imagine this scenario and apply it to a workout where these same people are applying heavy loads to their body. It’s a recipe for disaster.

Which brings me to my point: why do people still buy cookie cutter programs?

I’ve thought about it long and hard, and it seems like there are two reasons:

I hate to say it, but the industry is full of unqualified people who lack the educational background and the practical hands-on experience to know what works and what doesn’t.

After spending the past few years trying to figure out a solution to these issues, I’ve finally come up with a way to deliver high quality customization at an affordable price. It’s called The High Performance Handbook.

The High Performance Handbook Is Like Nothing You’ve Ever Seen Before…

First, unlike your typical cookie-cutter program, it doesn’t force you to do an exercise you can’t.

Second, it designs a program suitable to your needs – based on how you move, what your schedule allows, and what your goals are.

Third, it’s an entire system. Not just some manual that says “do this.” We give you an entire video database, how to modify exercises, and much more.

Most important, it does all of this at a very affordable price.

Don’t just take my word for it, see what clients and fitness professionals have to say about my approach to coaching:

The approach of the programming is awesome because it addresses many of the mobility issues and postural imbalances that are ingrained in the majority of the general population.

It’s hard to argue with results, and that’s exactly what I got with The High Performance Handbook from Eric Cressey. When I read about his new strength program, I was excited because I know how knowledgeable Eric is, and my own training had been in a bit of a rut. Prior to beginning this program, I had added only five pounds on my bench in the previous four months, and had been neglecting all things legs and core because of back pain. I also play a lot of overhead recreational sports, and was constantly having shoulder pain in my throwing arm.

After Eric’s four-month program, I am lifting and moving pain free and with better mobility than I have in a very long time. My shoulder and back pain are gone even on my heaviest lifting days. The approach of the programming is awesome because it addresses many of the mobility issues and postural imbalances that are ingrained in the majority of the general population. In addition to working on these imbalances, the program also has a heavy focus on strength. In the 16 weeks this program lasted, I increased my bench press 25 lbs from 235lbs to 260lbs. My deadlift went up from 390lbs on an elevated handle trap bar to 405lbs on a conventional deadlift. I have not made gains this significant in such a short amount of time since I first started strength training.

The High Performance Handbook system is extremely well rounded and thorough. It is a lot of hard work, but the results are worth every rep. If you put in the time and effort, you will not be disappointed in the gains you will experience. I recommend this product 100%.

I never felt beat down after a workout – a lot of them were taxing and tough but by the time I left, I felt really great

I had a very positive experience with The High Performance Handbook. I never left the gym with any kind of lumbar or trap achiness (I normally did before this) and I am contributing that the to fantastic videos and the cues given in the videos. I never felt beat down after a workout – a lot of them were taxing and tough but by the time I left, I felt really great. If you are looking for a place to go after Show and Go or are just looking for a place to start, look no farther.

Get strong with this program. Already strong? Get stronger. Every single one of my lifts improved; as an example, my barbell hip thrusts went from 95lbs to 175lbs (side note, ladies: if you want a strong, high butt, do hip thrusts!). And, by the end of the program I was able to eek out a couple of unassisted single chin-ups.

The fat loss workouts were great too. As an added bonus, my golf and tennis games both improved, and I even played kickball toward the end of this program. And, let me be clear, I come from a long line of non-athletes. Any and all athleticism I have, I have worked very, very hard for. The sprinting in this program made me lightning fast at running bases and when we all woke up the next day, I was not sore, whereas everyone else was, including the 15 year old. I patted myself on the back all day for that one.

I am feeling super confident after completing The High Performance Handbook program and am planning on keeping most of the lifts and warm-ups in my routine going forward.

The High Performance Handbook Maximizes Your Training Results Without Wasting Your Time

I’ve trained thousands of different people over the past 10 years, from elderly grandmothers to professional baseball players in the major leagues. Regardless of who I’m coaching, I tell them to do at least one thing: keep track of the important stuff.

There’s a reason why I’m so adamant about this – it’s because I do the same. Since the first day I started training clients, I’ve kept detailed notes on what works and what doesn’t. I’ve got everything from what cues make an exercise easy and obvious to perform to what makes it harder. The High Performance Handbook is all those years of knowledge broken down into a step-by-step system for an easy-to-follow and effective training system:

  1. Self-Assess – Using easy-to-follow videos, we have you do a few self-assessments. These assessments will give you the information you need to pick a roadmap to start your journey with these programs (there’s more than one route).
  2. Set Goals – Fat loss? Strength gain? Muscle gain? Athletic performance? I tell you how to modify elements to match up with your goals.
  3. Schedule – We want to make sure the program you select works with your schedule, so you can choose from 2x/week, 3x/week, and 4x/week strength training options (and supplemental work, depending on your goal from #2).
  4. Review the Exercises – We don’t give you text descriptions or just a few pictures on each exercise. There’s an entire video database that shows you how to do every single exercise, all with full coaching instructions.
  5. Start – You’ll go in and have an awesome first training session. No need to worry about what exercises to do, how to do them, or if you even can do them – we’ve already solved that.
  6. Hit Your Goals – Follow the four month program and you’ll meet your goals. Repeat depending on the way your goals evolve as you get stronger and leaner.

The High Performance Handbook makes it easy for you to safely reach a high level of performance. It’s a workout tailored specifically for you. It’s a choose-your-own-adventure approach to better performance, better results, and a better you!

What Does The High Performance HandbookInclude?

Though it’s called a “handbook,” this isn’t some book that is going to sit on your bookshelf and collect dust. Rather, it’s a thorough and expansive resource that will suit your goals over the next few years, letting you use it over and over again.

The High Performance Handbook includes:

But That’s Not All. I’m Going to Sweeten the Pot with Some Awesome Bonuses …

TOTAL value of The High Performance Handbook? $650.

Just to compare – if you were to fly here to Boston and somehow snag a coveted spot in my personal coaching schedule, you would expect to pay upwards of $500/hr. A personally designed program from me costs at least $1000.

With all these resources, it’s safe to say that I’ve given you every tool you will need to get stronger, perform better, and build a leaner, more athletic body; all while teaching your body to move more efficiently without any nasty aches and pains.

Both Performance & Nutrition Covered

Now, here’s where it gets more awesome. As the testimonials show, The High Performance Handbook training system is remarkably effective by itself. However, if you want to really kick things up a notch and reallymaximize your performance, you need to line up your training efforts with some stellar nutrition and lifestyle choices. And that’s why I’ve enlisted the help of my good friend, Brian St. Pierre, to write The High Performance Handbook Nutrition Guide.

Brian is a brilliant, forward-thinking nutrition expert. And not just some self-proclaimed expert – he’s consulted with countless pro athletes and regular fitness folks alike, and he’s one of the bright minds contributing heavily to Dr. John Berardi’s world-renowned Precision Nutrition system. Just like how I’ve been taking notes on what works for my training clients, Brian has been taking notes on what works for his clients! Here’s a quick list of what Brian covers in the manual:

  1. Nutrition Application Section – Quick and easy for those who simply want to know how to eat better.
  2. Example Menus – Over a dozen, ranging from getting lean, getting big, and maintenance, to Intermittent Fasting, and Paleo. covers male and female nutrition, as well as different approaches based on when you train (keeping up with our customization process).
  3. Recommended Recipes – 50 of them! Ranging from breakfast, chicken, beef, and seafood meals, to side dishes, desserts, snacks, and Super Smoothies.
  4. Proteins, Carbs, and Fats – Explanations of the critical importance of getting in adequate amounts. It’s easier than you think!
  5. Beverages – Discussion on the pros and cons, including coffee, tea, fruit juice, beer, wine, water and more.
  6. Build Your Own Super Smoothies – A step-by-step guide on how to build your own Super Smoothies (and we’ve already included 11 recipes).
  7. Artificial and low-calorie sweeteners – What’s safe, what might not be, and what you should actually consume.
  8. Dairy – A breakdown of the pros, the cons, raw vs. pasteurized, grass-fed vs. grain-fed.
  9. Sleep – How to improve the quantity and quality of your sleep, and why this is critical to giving you the body composition, performance and health you desire.
  10. Stress – How to manage your stress, and in the process, maybe even save your life.
  11. Chemicals in our Environment – An eye-opening exposé on all of the chemicals in our environment, the danger they pose, and the action steps you can take to limit your exposure and improve your health.

I know training and performance, and Brian knows nutrition. With that in mind, I’m giving you the option of purchasing The High Performance Handbook with or without Brian’s Nutrition Guide.

I’m not an “Internet Fitness Celebrity”
I Walk the Walk

I’d like to take a second and tell you exactly who I am.

If you’ve read up until this point, you know my name is Eric Cressey. What you really need to know about me is that coaching and training is my life.

I obtained an undergraduate degree in Exercise Science, followed by my Master’s Degree in Kinesiology, with a concentration in Exercise Science, from the University of Connecticut, which has the #1 ranked kinesiology graduate program in the country. My Master’s thesis was “The effects of 10 weeks of lower-body unstable surface training on markers of athletic performance” and was published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.

I’ve written over 500 published articles, and have been featured in local and national publications such as Men’s Health, Men’s Fitness, ESPN, T-Muscle, Yahoo Sports, The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, Baseball America, Oxygen, Experience Life, Triathlete Magazine, and more. I’ve also published five books, and have been a guest speaker in five countries and in 19 states. I’m even a training ambassador for New Balance Shoes.

I’m also a competitive powerlifter. My top competition lifts are a 540 squat, 402 bench, and 650 deadlift, giving me a 1532 total in the 165-pound weight class.

I lift, I train, and I write, and have been doing so for over a decade. The High Performance Handbook is the summation of all that experience – the sum of both my practical and my educational background.
