Lies, Damn Lies, and Cardio
I don’t do cardio – I hate cardio.
I hate what it does to my patients. It makes them worn out. It burns away their muscle. It trashes their immune system. It wears down their joints. It causes inflammation.
And that’s not all.
Through testing at my Wellness Research Foundation, I discovered that when you do a lot of cardio, it also shrinks your lungs. Then it slashes your heart’s pumping power. And makes your bones weaker. It even zaps your sex drive.
In other words, it makes you old before your time.
I tell all of my patients to stop doing it. And they immediately start to feel better, look better and have more energy.
We do Anti-Cardio instead.
It’s much easier. It’s much faster, too. And it can also lower your risk of heart disease 100 percent more than cardio can. I’ll tell you more about this in a moment, but first I want to show you why cardio is so damaging to your body.
I’m doing everything I can to spread the word that cardio is a lie.
A very dangerous lie that will ruin your health in the long term.
I’m about to show you why you don’t need cardio. So far 70,000 people all across the country are experiencing what I call the “Anti-Cardio Way of Life.”
And when you hear how it works, you’ll want to throw away your jogging shoes…
The Ugly Truth About Cardio
When I say “cardio,” I’m not talking about going for a brisk walk… spending a few minutes on an elliptical machine… or swimming a few laps.
“Cardio” is short for cardiovascular endurance training. It’s the idea that you have to raise your heart rate for a long duration – at least 20 minutes, and usually much more. It’s when you spend 45 minutes on a treadmill, or run for miles every day. Or take an hour-long aerobics class.
This kind of exercising to exhaustion is just not natural.
Your ancestors didn’t jog for miles at a time. They didn’t jump around for an hour doing aerobics. They had short bursts of activity – sprinting to catch food, or to avoid being food. That’s how they stayed lean and strong.
The concept of cardiovascular endurance exercise – like marathon running or aerobics – goes against how your body was built to move.
And it can hurt you in the long run.
What’s worse is the advice of today’s fitness “experts” who tell you to do cardio so that you can get into the “fat-melting zone.”
The trouble is, you don’t want to be in the fat-melting zone.
Every time you enter that zone, you’re programming your body to use fat for fuel. You’re sending a signal that you need fat.
And your body responds by storing it up so you’ll have fuel to burn.
Let me say that again…
Cardio Makes You Store Fat!
You see, it doesn’t matter how much fat you melt while running on the treadmill… or how many hours you spend at the gym… or whether you do one of those “insane” workout DVDs.
All that matters is what happens to your body when you stop.
When you finish a cardio workout, your body goes to work storing fat to fuel your next workout. That’s why those last few stubborn pounds never seem to come off by just doing more cardio.
The cardio is working against you.
My Anti-Cardio program restores your body’s natural metabolism and re-trains your body to store energy in your muscles, just like your ancestors did…
And it reprograms your body to dump that extra fat.
I call my program PACE Express – and you can do it at home without any special equipment. It takes just minutes instead of hours.
The best part is, when you finish your PACE Express session, your body continues to burn fat for up to 24 hours – while you get on with your life.
Burn Fat While You Rest…and Power Up Your Heart and Lungs
The first time I revealed the scientific proof behind my new Anti-Cardio category of fitness, called P.A.C.E., it sent shockwaves through the medical community.
“If he’s right…this changes everything.”
That’s what the Founder and President of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, Dr. Ronald Platz, said after reading my book, P.A.C.E.: The 12-Minute Fitness Revolution. I wrote this book to show the world that traditional cardio exercise is the most misguided and misunderstood fitness phenomenon ever… and that you don’t need it to drop weight.
But it’s not just about getting rid of fat – it’s also about transforming your body and staying lean and active for life.
“P.A.C.E.” stands for Progressively Accelerating Cardiopulmonary Exertion.
Unlike cardio, P.A.C.E. makes your heart – the most important muscle in your body – stronger by growing its reserve capacity. That means it boosts your heart’s pumping power. The same thing happens for your lungs. They get stronger and you get more lungpower.
That’s a huge difference from what happens when you do cardiovascular endurance exercise.
When you train for endurance, your capacity shrinks. Your lungs shrink. Your heart’s ability to pump blood shrinks. Your muscles shrink, too, because your body is “downsizing.” With a smaller “engine,” your body will be able to use less fuel and cover more ground.
Even though that might help you cross the finish line of a marathon… having a shrunken heart and lungs doesn’t make you healthier. (I’ve measured – and documented – this shrinking in long-distance runners. All the details are in my book.)
Here’s why this is dangerous.
When you lose lungpower, your risk of a heart attack goes up 200 percent.¹ In fact, the smaller your lungs, the greater your chances are of dying – from all causes.
I can’t stand by and watch this happen to my patients, or to the millions of people all across America who think that traditional cardio is universally “healthy.”
Now You Can Avoid Cardio Forever
Pretty soon after my book was published, my office was flooded with phone calls.
Thousands of people read my PACE book and called to ask me, “How do I start? What’s the next step?”
It was exciting to hear from so many people who were fired up about P.A.C.E. I’ve been working hard ever since to build an at-home P.A.C.E. program – so you can get results with the very same moves that have given new hope to my patients at the clinic.
It took me more than a year to put it all together. I flew back and forth to Los Angeles and worked with top fitness producers to get everything just right.
The result of all that hard work is PACE Express, an easy-to-follow DVD program you can do at home. It’s the easiest way to get all the benefits of P.A.C.E. without having to figure out all the science.
All you have to do is push play. You’ll be guided through every step of the way.
Just a few minutes and you’re done.
And you won’t ever have to do cardio again. Ever.
Instead of using “insane” movements that are impossible to do, I developed PACE Express using simple movements.
You can choose what’s right for you…whether you’re just starting, or are more advanced.
No matter what your level of fitness is, you can do PACE Express. If you can walk, you can do it!

“All I Could Do Was 45 Seconds”
One of my patients, Terri, started out by walking just 45 seconds. At 250 pounds, that was the only exertion she could do at the beginning.
But every day, Terri did a little more and a little more…gradually increasing her intensity and building up her capacity.
Can you guess what happened? She went from a size 22 in Misses to a size 11 in the Juniors department. At 60 years old!
Terri tells me, “I’m proud of my transformation! I’m strong like I was in my teens and 20s. People around me talk about getting old, and I have to be honest. I tell them, ‘Not me! I’m getting younger!’”
I have a drawer full of letters like this one. But now it’s your turn to see for yourself…
