#1 - Fit and Healthy
and Fitness are words that get thrown around with little actual
significance. In this first of Seven Letters, you'll come
to understand how, when we look beyond the term, the essence
of health and fitness is in direct correlation with the quality
of the life you lead, the joy you find in each living day,
and the value you find in every experience. In a society where
disease has become acceptable, gain genuine insight into the
power you have to master your own body and life. This letter
opens the door to recognition over the immense power you have
to be at your absolute best.
#2 - Control & Belief
most people fail to ever realize the control they have over
their own bodies, and with mastery of mindset, fitness becomes
simple.More often than not, the challenge lies in gaining
we cut calories to lose weight? Are carbs really the enemy?
Is aerobic exercise the key to weight loss? Must you do a
minimum of 20 minutes of exercise before you burn fat? Myths
and truths have converged to leave a very confused fitness
wanting public. Find some clear answers and get your mind
aligned with the fitness realities that will set you free.
#3 - Sugar?!?!
Delicious, and Destructive. Sugar in 21st century food is
not the same compound grandma used to bake cookies. Today's
sugar realities are not so sweet, as they are driving obesity
rates, diabetes incidence, and heart disease to alarming levels.
Find out what the smoothie you're drinking is doing to your
body! Find oiut why even "healthy" foods may be
creating fat storage. Stop falling victim to the marketing
that drives food sales at the expense of optimal health.
#4 - Who Needs Machines?
exercise machines??!? Find out why the modern day gym houses
exercise machines that are unnecessary and in some cases,
may do more harm than good. One of the more common mistakes
gym goers make is excessive volume. Once you understand the
reason for overkill, you'll come to learn the only 8 exercise
movements you'll ever need!
#5 - Are You Recovering?
is the missing element that prevents many active people from
finding the health and physique payoff they've all but written
off. Find out why exercise, without adequate recuperation,
may negatively impact immune function and overall health.
Master the simple nutritional strategies that ensure optimal
benefit from exercise.
#6 - What Should I Eat?
It's a tired topic. This letter, however, takes everything
you've heard, everything you've tried to figure out, everything
that's been confusing you, and makes it simple. After reading
this letter, eating will again become fun, and rewarding.
Supplements, meal preparation, metabolism, diet . . . it's
all in here!
#7 - The Walking Dead
is the most controversial piece I've ever written, and it's
received more acclaim than all of the other letters combined.
In it I reveal some shocking truths about medicine, about
our population's health, and about the pitiful mental and
physical decline so many will experience if they fail to take

The Bridge Between
Fitness and Cure
A New Exercise
Protocol by Phil Kaplan
is a breakthrough intervention aimed at helping functional individuals,
even those with limiting physical conditions, to gain power
over their own physical betterment. In other words, if you're
not at your best, this is a complete exercise, nutrition, and
lifestyle program designed to make you "better."
by the words Be Better, the words that title my newest pursuits
both professionally and personally, the words with carry-over
significance that underlie virtually all human motivation, the
protocol treats conditions such as excess adiposity (excess
body fat), obesity, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, metabolic
syndrome, and inflammatory conditions as the combined result
of genetic factors, lifestyle choices, nutritional habits, emotional
interpretations, and environmental conditions. With this perspective,
each "condition," referred to in the protocol as "dis-ease"
can be viewed as a continuum and the discomfort or abnormality
moves along this continuum in one of two ways.
1 - you move away from health. Untreated inflammation, deterioration,
fat accumulation, and degeneration move the individual and the
condition(s) toward advanced dis-ease.
2 - you get "better." If the condition is treated
through appropriate intervention, reduction in symptoms, restoration
of normal function, and a sense of heightened power and self-esteem
move the individual back toward a state of health.
are two distinctive types of interventions.

might remember fondly the days of the family doctor, a physician
who knew you, knew your family, knew your conditions, and who
emanated a sense of caring. Today, medicine has become assembly
line. The doctors all care about people, but the system limits
opportunity for doctor - patient relationships. With the emergence
of new symptom-reducing and condition-managing drugs, individuals
who are not considered clinically ill are often diagnosed with
a label (so insurance will cover the "meds") and sent
to the pharmacy with a prescription. Because each individual
has his or her own rrespective position along the dis-ease continuum,
consecutive doctor visits often bring new prescriptions and
condition "management" rather than cure.
of the conditions that have come to accepted as conditions of
aging, including a slowing of metabolism, an increase of abdominal
fat, and irregularities in blood pressure and blood sugar may
be fully reversible through shifts in activity and nutrition
and ALIVE is aimed at stimulating progressive improvement and
reversal of dis-ease.
ALIVE* protocol offers an alternative restoring a sense of control
to the individual. It follows a specific strategy, integrating
shifts in eating and a strategically structured exercise routine,
to facilitate improvements in endocrine balance, energy production,
pulmonary function, vascular efficiency, coordination, strength,
and mitochondrial integrity. Combined, these elements, in many
cases, begin the individual moving in a curative direction along
Exercise Protocol (ALIVE) requires

am personally taking on only four new clients per month. There
is a $2400 investment to work with me personally. The one-month
process includes an extensive intake where I get to understand
the physical, medical, emotional, and lifestyle elements that
brought you to your present condition. We'll look at a baseline
of lab work as well as current fitness responses to establish
a clear starting point and assure the program is aimed specifically
at those areas you most seek to improve.
intake includes an assessment using the POLAR Body Age system
allowing us to review a correlation between your present level
of fitness and standards and norms. The result is documented
as the establishment of a "biological age." The biological age
measurement serves as a tool for assessment. Theoretically,
you may test at 5 or 10 years above your chronological age (i.e.
a 40 year old may test at 45 or 50 biologically). With improvement
of the factors mentioned previously, a re-test typically reveals
a significant rejuvenation, a reduced biological age.

is not presently affordable (this will not be covered by insurance)
there are other options for going through the protocol. I will
be establishing ALIVE groups which will include group instruction
and select one-on-one contact with an approved Personal Trainer.
You can also elect to follow my 21 Day Journey to Excellence
remote which, for a limited time, I'm making available for only
$289 with an online submission and a 20-minute personal telephone
consult. The 21 Day Journey, while it's nowhere near as extensive
or personalized as ALIVE, is a complete and proven program and
contains the foundational elements of the ALIVE protocol exercise
intention is to not only find physical improvement and significant
movement along the continuum toward optimal health, but also
to empower you with tools and strategies to keep improvement
consistent and ongoing beyond the 28 days. Following the 28
day protocol, you will have a program you can follow ongoing
and no further consult is required. I will keep a limited number
of active clients, who I will visit periodically in their homes
where we can arrange an independent situation allowing for guided
self-sufficiency including limited or extensive exercise equipment
considerations, changes in food selections and kitchen staples,
and ongoing direction for dramatic improvement over time. This
is only available for individuals who live in South Florida
between Boca Raton and Wellington, between A1A and 441. (click

of recorded audio, video, and guide books or electronically
through download. Contact me by email with a two-paragraph summary
of your present concerns, interests, and conditions and I will
respond with what I believe is the best course of action.
Summer of 2010, new ALIVE groups will be held at Fitness 21 in South Florida. There will also be 12 fitness professionals around the country who will have
mastery of the ALIVE protocol. If you do not live in South Florida
and would like to go through the protocol personally with an
experienced and competent Personal Fitness Trainers, email me and I'll let you know if I can connect you with someone in your area.
This is not intended to replace medical care, nor is it intended
for individuals working to resolve or heal diagnosed illness
requiring surgery or advanced medical treatment. It is a protocol
for otherwise healthy individuals who are troubled by emerging
conditions that compromise fitness, performance, or well-being.
In cases of diagnosed conditions, this protocol should prove
complementary to medical care and all medical protocols, prescriptions,
and recommended treatments will be considered and appropriately
