London, OH, April 25, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Team EliteFTS member and two-time cancer survivor Alwyn Cosgrove has organized a group of the industry’s top strength and fitness trainers to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, creating an 800-page book on CD entitled, “Lift Strong.”
This book features expert advice and motivational stories focusing on a variety of topics ranging from improving a personal training regimen to overcoming some of life’s obstacles.
Elite Fitness Systems, which sponsors Team EliteFTS, is giving these books away on its website at www.elitefts.com/liftstrong in return for a $25 donation, all of which will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Elite Fitness Systems is also one of three vendors distributing this product.
“This is the first time the strength training community has stepped up as one for a cause in a long time,” said Cosgrove, a sport-specific personal trainer and Tae kwon-do international champion. “To be able to get the caliber of trainers and authors to donate their time and help us fight cancer is a testament to the types of people we have in this industry.”
Overall 57 writers, many of who have had their work published in national magazines, contributed to the book. Nine of these writers are members of Team EliteFTS, including:
• Alwyn Cosgrove – The Cancer Diaries
• Bob Youngs – Seven Considerations for Goal Setting
• Dave Tate – Back to the Future
• James Smith – Considerations of Planning Training
• Jason Ferruggia – Optimal vs. Reality
• Jim “Smitty” Smith – COT
• Joe DeFranco – NFL Linebacker In-Season Strength Program
• Julia Ladewski – Pre-Season Basketball Training
• Zach Even-Esh - Outdoor Fitness
