Before I tell your how walking can help fix trouble spots – I have 2 other items to share with you.

1 – Two days ago – the purchase page for the Leg, Butt, Hip and Thigh Makeover e-Manual was ‘unavailable’ – My apologies if you were one of the people who couldn’t place your order during that time. I just found out that when the number visitors to that page is too high – it shuts down to any additional visitors trying to place an order – for security purposes. Not sure if this is true – but it makes sense as there have been a lot of women coming to this site to order the e-Manual.

2 – Because of this huge success of the e-Manual – I’m putting together a 2-part, free gift as my way of saying thanks to everyone – event to those few of you who haven’t purchased a copy of the e-Manual.

Part 1 is going to be ‘The Trouble Spot Tune-Up’ - a mini-workout targeting your lower body that you’ll be able to do in as little as 10 minutes – this will be a 5 page pdf download with full color photos – just like the complete e-Manual (over 105 pages).

Part 2 is going to be an incredible streaming audio interview I just did with Holly Rigsby of BackIntoShapeMommy.com – that you’ll be able to listen to right on your computer. Holly ‘heard through the grapevine’ about my program – and just knew she needed to get the answers to a bunch of questions that many women have not been able to get answers to.

We did the 75 minute interview yesterday – and I absolutely stunned Holly – she couldn’t believe the kind of stuff I was sharing with her. I listened to the uncut replay after the interview – and I must to admit – it was the first time I really opened up about some of the most pressing issues females are faced with when it comes to body image and making improvements in their toughest problem areas.

In the next few weeks I’ll be offering these 2 items to you, completely free – with NO STRINGS ATTACHED – again, as my way of saying ‘thanks’ and giving something back. Stay tuned for those…

Now – about walking for your trouble spots…

It’s a common questions I get often, “Joey, will walking help me with my lower body?”

The simple answer is yes. BUT – how you use walking all depends on your current level of fitness and what exact things you are trying to improve. I’ll be talking more about this in future articles. But for know I need to address something of deeper importance that has to do with walking…

For those of you who have been subscribing for a year or longer may remember my newsletter a year ago – that focused on a condition called ‘Angelman Syndrome’ – for those who has just started subscribing recently – here is the crux of the story.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with 2 great clients for the past 7 years, Rob and Debbie Schiller, I started with Rob first – and then with Deb after she gave birth to their second son, Ethan. When Ethan was just a few years old – he was diagnosed with Angelman Syndrome. It was a trying time for the Schillers and they knew life was going to hold a new set of challenges from that moment forward.

In short, Ethan grows physically – but everything else lags far behind – requiring every function – to include some type of assistance from another family member or caretaker.

What does walking have to do with this?

Every year the Schillers host a Walk-A-Thon here in Jacksonville – that is tied to a worldwide fundraiser – to help find a cure for this heartbreaking condition. This is the kind of walk thats helps ‘trouble spots’ that can only be conquered by the united forces and resources of many people working together – such as me putting together this article to raise awareness and rally for some support.

To wrap this up – all I ask, if you can spare anything (if you can’t we understand – just put Ethan and the foundation in your prayers) – even a dollar – is that you help us by making a small contribution to the Angelman Foundation – here on a page made specially for Ethan. While you are there you can watch the video from last year’s Walk a Thon – also – you can see all of the other donors – our’s will be listed as – “from the ‘Atlas Family’ – “Onward, Ethan!…

You DO NOT HAVE TO participate in the walk a thon – in order to make a donation – and again – you can do this from anywhere in the world – at this page:

If you can donate – be sure to put …from Team Atlas” – in the comment section with your name – so we can show our support together.

I THANK YOU deeply for any help you can offer,
