Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Readers tired of the same old workout moves can grab a sword (a broomstick and some imagination will do!) and slice, chop, and thrust their way into great shape. In "Forza The Samurai Sword Workout", top New York trainer Ilaria Montagnani transforms ancient Japanese sword fighting techniques from kendo and aikijujitsu into a supercharged fitness program. Specially designed to work the whole body, Montagnani's program teaches precise striking movements that shape the upper and lower body while building strength. "Forza The Samurai Sword Workout" is also a fantastic cardiovascular workout as various movements are strung together into movie-like, choreographed fighting sequences performed at high speed. The book includes a resource section explaining how and where to purchase various workout swords, including steel, wood, and weighted plastic.

Synopsis:

“Meet the Lara Croft of Manhattan”

--The New York Post

STRIKE, THRUST, CUT . . . YOUR WAY INTO GREAT SHAPE

Feel the power and exhilaration of a Samurai sword workout with Forza, the full body exercise program based on Japanese sword fighting techniques. Build muscle and burn fat with this fantastic cardio workout that strings together controlled sword movements in to movie-like, choreographed combinations performed at high speed.

Synopsis:

First the author teaches basic sword movements: thrusts, slices etc. Although she keeps it fun, she draws on her years of martial arts training to teach the true movements that combine balance, focus and precised muscle control. Then the author explains the benefits of each movement and her sword fighting program as a whole. In part three of the book she brings it all together showing how to string movements together into a heart-pounding, full-throttle workout.

Synopsis:

Combines the thrill and excitement of swordplay with a heart-pumping, full-body workout.
