Who is John Carleo?

I have been in the fitness field for over 44 years.  You may have seen me on television in the Total Gym Infomercials with Chuck Norris and Christie Brinkley

Over the last 10 years, I have set State, National and World power lifting records using Total Gym as my exclusive training system.  My daily workouts are 6 to 8 minutes long and I exercise 6 days a week.  My program can be used with equipment you presently own or at your favorite gym.  You don’t have to own a Total Gym.  It just happens to be my equipment of choice.

On February 12, 2005 in Oklahoma City I set new American and World  power lifting records and actually lifted more weight than I did 10 years ago at age 50. Once again I used my 6 to 8 minute a day training program exclusively.   How I came up with this unconventional training program will be explained in my upcoming book, "It Only Takes One Hour a Week".  But for now if I may, allow me to tell you a little about myself.

I was born January 17th 1945 in Braddock Pennsylvania,  approximately 15 miles east of Pittsburgh. I was premature and was not expected to live.
After spending several weeks in an incubator and a few more under close medical care I was strong enough to go home.  Life progressed normally for a few years until I developed a persistent fever and became very weak.  I was diagnosed with an abnormal type of measles that didn’t cause skin eruptions but poisoned the body internally.  Once again I came close to dying.

I recovered but from then on I was frail, sickly and underweight.  Because I was abnormally thin, I was made fun of and picked on continuously. I had a lot of nick names, no friends and a very poor self image. At the age of fourteen I stood five feet seven inches tall and weighed 97 pounds.

Well all of those things happened to me and they happened because a few people motivated me to improve myself physically. The positive way those few touched my life and  motivated me has enabled me to touch thousands of lives in the 40 plus years I have been in the fitness profession.

With God's grace, I hope my book, videos and wellness programs will enable me to touch your life and motivate you and millions like you that would rather, Do less and Gain more” when it comes to exercise.

I am so sure that I can help you get in shape, stay in shape and get better with age that I am doing something experts have told me I am crazy to even consider doing. I am crazy alright.  I am crazy about helping people look better, feel better, perform better and get better with age!  I am giving a 90-day performance guarantee to the original purchaser of any of my videos.  At the end of the 90 days, simply return your completed workout log along with the video(s) for a full refund. 

Let’s get started.
