Past News Releases


Chris Carmichael (, Olympian, New York Times bestselling author and coach to a number of world-class athletes including cancer survivor and seven-time Tour de France Champion Lance Armstrong, today introduced the "5 Essentials for a Winning Life" (Rodale, December, 2006), a step-by-step action plan for achieving your personal, professional, and fitness goals while performing at levels thought only possible in youth. In the 5 Essentials Program, America’s Coach provides the empowering tools for harmonizing the five essential aspects of life — fitness, nutrition, relationships, career and health — to construct a strong, stable, and supportive platform from which we can all reach our dreams.

While there are many books that offer advice on making a change in one specific area of life – whether it is diet, fitness, career advancement or relationships – the 5 Essentials Program provides the integrated and balanced approach to release the champion within and create lasting change.

"5 Essentials for a Winning Life" offers:

  • Highly effective ways to drop pounds and keep them off
  • Medical tests that can save your life
  • Realistic and proven guidance for balancing your career, relationships, health, fitness and nutrition goals
  • Simple, clearly explained exercises that can be completed anywhere
  • More than 60 fast and easy heart-healthy recipes

“Great success in any area of life is only possible if you first achieve an integrated, healthy and balanced lifestyle,” said Chris Carmichael. “No matter how overweight you are. No matter what financial problems you’re facing. No matter how disconnected you’ve become from your family. No matter what health problems you’re currently dealing with. And no matter how frustrated you are with your job. You can still win if you master the 5 Essentials.”

“'5 Essentials for a Winning Life' goes far beyond workouts and meal plans,” said seven-time Tour de France Champion Lance Armstrong. “It’s the performance plan for living life to its fullest.”

"5 Essentials for a Winning Life" is available wherever finer books are sold on December 12 and online at where you can join the growing community of adults who are winning at life!
