Default Impressive Testimonial for YRG

http://www.yrgworkout.com/Arthur.html

I like the YRG stuff. I think it's a distillation of the most useful stuff from yoga. I've actually done YRG off and on for about two years now, having gotten the book in late 2005, and consider it just as good for mobility and flexibility as the dedicated mobility programs you can get. It's been nicely complementary to lifting.

I'm normally somewhat indifferent towards testimonials, but this one impressed me and I thought it was quite cool.

It is a great story. I also enjoy the YRG series. As I have posted before one of the graphics artists who works here is the webmaster for the site.

I was very interested in how Arthur achieved his success so I asked my buddy to find out some details on his diet. I don't have that data yet but I will share it if anyone is interested.

My wife and our severely de-trained overweight young neighbor are doing YRG once a week as part of their current workout program.

Wow...100lbs lost. Very impressive. And it looks like he's walking again under his own power.
