Hi Chris just need some clarification on your Wrist Rotations. The pictures don't seem to match your instructions. Am I just lowering the braced arm and just rotating my wrist forward and backwards? Or what do you mean by "slowly rotate the wrist to the other side", other side of my body or just rotate my wrist back and forth? Just want to make sure I'm doing this right. Doesn't seem right to bring my arm to the other side of my body.Silly little thing but best to make sure I'm doing it right.Thanks!

Weighed in yesterday and am now down 9 lbs since I started. This weekend is going to mess me up though because I'm going out of town to do my niece's wedding. That's a part of why I decided to allow 6 weeks for the beginner workouts though.
I'm also in what I'd call the danger zone. I've lost 6 to 10 pounds several times over the past 5 years and actually lost 19 10 years ago when our entire staff did weight watchers (I was the biggest looser.) Once I get below 190 I feel really good, the clothes fit better and I give up - after three or four months the weight is back and I diet/excercise again. Net result is I do about two cycles of this a year fluctuating 6 to 10 pounds in weight - it's not good.
My hope and prayer is that I keep going, that the healthier eating becomes a habit, that the excercise becomes a habit (it hasn't been for 12 years or since I moved from a small parish to large parishes) for the rest of my life. I feel so much better already although I do still have some aches and pains that I didn't have before. I can already tell that my balance is better in my swing - I'm able to keep my weight on the insides of my feet instead of letting it get to the outside of the foot and when I can do that I strike the ball really well. As I get stronger I should be be able to maintain those balance points with greater clubhead speed which will in turn create more distance.

I too have not recieved a response. It seems that I get daily unsolicited marketing spiels about "fitness mixes" & "distances cocktails," yet I canot get a response regarding the 30 day/30 yards program.
So I'm posting this in here because I never got a response from Christian in the private messaging, so I gave up (I hate quitting) and moved on to another workout in the meanwhile. I couldn't figure some things out and have been a part of other DVD workout program groups, where the response is quick from the staff. I understand this is probably on a smaller scale right now but I would hope the follow up wouldn't take a month. I sent this back on Jan 1st, if Christian can't help maybe y'all can cause I wanna kick some butt when you guys get up here in June!
I nomally don't give unsolicited advice, though I'm gonna break habit here and just say five words- the "twenty-four hour rule." A retired Chairman/CEO from Westinghouse Corporation who gave me three "rules" to follow for as long as I was in business. The 24-hour rule was #2. Simple-Respond to ALL messages, regardless of medium, within 24 hours, even if it means having an assistant respond for you to give the recipient a time that you yourself will respond. No excuses.
Because you know as a trainer, that once someone breaks routine, it just becomes easier to justify, rationalize and make excuses for not keeping the discipline neccessary to complete the work-out. Same with the 24-hour.
If someone takes their time to write, call or contact me, the least that I can do is respect their time and return their communications. I respond to over 50 e-mails, texts & phone calls daily, so please spare me on how busy that you are.
Forget about me, though in picking us for this program, there came an obligation on your part. And in Nidine, you had an excited, enthusiastic and sweet person who just needed probably a few minutes of your time. Obviously more than you care to give. It's a shame.
But remember one thing, and while you may not agree, programs like yours are a dime a dozen, just like drivers, irons & putters. There are a lot out there and most work just fine. What seperates companies like yours from the others are the people, and the man/woman at the top.
There is no substitute for manners, etiquette & class.
And there is never an excuse for a lack there of

It's a simple thing but it sets you apart and it's what the people who called or emailed or dropped by deserve.

I can't say much about distance gains yet because I want to see the final results, but I will say I have been hitting the ball farther than ever before. Part of that was some serious swing mechanics I had been working on though, such as a really delayed release and initiating the swing with my lower body.
The other thing is I'm a big disappointed Christian disappeared from these forums, but since he is/was a forum sponsor, I will do a full writeup once I get four weeks into the advanced program. The only issue I've had otherwise is you definitely need free weights for this program, and I went and bought the bowflex adjustable dumbbells for $300. Really though, they were a great purchase, so I don't mind too much.

sorry I missed this completely. I was one of the lucky ones to get this workout and haven't contacted christian about the exercises I had issues with rather just googled them and found out what I needed. Customer service is a pet peeve so that sucks if no response is being given. Haven't come close to a full review since I have been out on IR after surgery but plan on completeing this throughout the season. I have to say though, not much distance gained in the couple weeks I have gone through this program. there are some tough workouts even in the beginner section but nothing a determined person should be able to muscle through.
AS for the wrist rotations i took them as this.
1. hands with finger tips touching with palm facing sternum
2. rotate down and out to the right as if you have a limp wrist
3. rotate to palms up and out in front of the body. fingers to sky as if pushing someone away from you
4. back to starting position
this will make the wrist rotate in a full circle.
