FIRST – a sincere “THANK YOU!” to everyone who helped make the book a # 1 Bestseller by ordering a copy on the release date.

[NOTE - the book and special release date bonus package is still available, even though Amazon is showing, "Temporarily Out of Stock".

I post this article today – not to toot my own horn – but rather to show you what can be achieved when you set your mind to something.

First we start with a cool screen shot of my book, Fatness to Fitness, sitting in the top spot on the Exercise and Fitness Bestseller List on (as I’m typing this – it is STILL in the # 1 spot).

exercise and fitness book bestseller
#1 Bestseller: ‘Fatness to Fitness’

We hit # 1 around midday yesterday and have been there ever since.

Now – here is why this is important….

Several weeks ago the book wasn’t even printed – in other words, ‘there was no book’… yet.

BUT – it was in the works – as about 3 years ago I decided to ‘write a book’…. AND make it a Bestseller.

That was just the beginning.

Everything that followed that decision was fueled by ‘focused intention’. In other words – I did whatever I needed to do – to fulfill my goal.

The fact that you see my book in THE top spot should light a fire in you. It should make you truly understand that YOU are capable of achieving much more than you might believe at this point in your life.

See – to the book/publishing world – before yesterday – ‘Joey Atlas’ was a ‘nobody’. Joey Atlas didn’t exist.

Well, that’s different today.

Because, literally – from a ‘million miles away’ – I was preparing to strike like lightening. And that I did.

Now – you must understand that the books that sit at the top of the bestseller lists are backed by the biggest publishing companies in the world with a LOT of money to spend on marketing and advertising.

BUT – again, I go back to this: When you put your mind to something – you can achieve great things.

You make a decision…

Then you assess your current status. You learn what tools are needed. You find out what paths are available. You decide which path fits you best. You map out a plan. And then you follow your plan – with an open mind, ‘flexibility’, and enthusiasm – with the end result in focus.

That’s how I went from ‘nobody’ (I say that facetiously) to # 1 Bestseller (I say that with all seriousness). And it’s exactly how you can go after your own goals – whatever it or they may be.

A few cool notes about the book release. We also hit # 19 on the OVERALL Amazon Bestseller list yesterday (I think we are currently # 24). This is amazing considering the names that you see on that list – some real heavy hitters who get tons and tons of media exposure every single day – and that there are a few million books on Amazon.

And we are also at # 4 in the ‘Health, Mind & Body’ Bestseller list. When you look at some of the books and authors that we leap-frogged yesterday – its a bit ‘energizing’ to say the least.

For those of you asking…

“Yes!” – my next book is in the works… and I want you in it!

The title is ‘Fitness – The Atlas Way’ – and YOU have the opportunity to be featured in that book and be part of my next Bestseller. All the details are in the last chapter of Fatness to Fitness.

Essentially – you turn yourself into your own success story by following my advice while tracking your progress along the way – and when you reach your goal – you send me your ‘Before and After’ success story, interview questionnaire and photos. If it’s good – you are in the next book.

Thats in for now – Don’t forget to leave your comments below – I’ll be waiting to hear from you.

Snoop Dogg, Batman and Joey Atlas

May 29th, 2008

- by Joey Atlas

What do Snoop Dogg, Batman and Joey Atlas have in common?

No – It’s not a # 1 Selling Rap Album (that was Snoop Dogg, I think)

No – It’s not the ability to beat the crap out of 7 bad guys in 3 minutes (that was Batman, but I could do it if I had to)

No – It’s not a # 1 Best Selling Fitness, Nutrition and Life Enhancement Book (that’s gonna be me next week, on June 5th)

Here is what the 3 of us do have in common. We each own a Chrysler 300 – but each is very different from the others – especially mine…

Here is Snoop Doggs’ – as you can see it’s been ‘pimped out’:

snoop doggs chrysler 300

Below is Batman’s (well, really Adam West) – pretty mild – no flames coming out the back like the Batmobile:

batman\'s chrysler 300

And below is mine – keep in mind – it’s a 1962 Chrysler 300, about 43 years older than the ones you see above. And – it needs a makeover of it’s own – which is happening while we speak…

Atlas Chrysler 300

atlas chrysler 300 2

Below is what it will look like after the ‘makeover’ – just a bit cooler though – and it will be all black…

1962 chrysler 300

Why a 1962 Chrysler 300?, you ask…

Well, 2 reasons:

1 – We needed an official promotional vehicle for my book launch and ongoing book promotion tour – and long term promotion events. And I found this one a few weeks ago at the exact right moment – the experience was ‘magnetic’.

2 – I am a classic/muscle car fanatic and doing a restoration project like this has been a dream of mine since childhood.

So you must be wondering about the book launch next week. Right now we are hard at work preparing for the launch – lots of small details to get in order when working with Amazon – to get everything set up properly.

The official launch date is June 5th – Thursday of next week (this will be different – of course, in other parts of the world.)

So stay tuned – and in the meantime – leave me your comments below – I’d love to hear from you.

Your trainer,

Fat Burning Foods or Just Healthy, Fitness Promoting Nutrition

May 16th, 2008

by Joey Atlas, M.S. Exercise Physiology


I love scanning the magazine covers at the checkout areas of the supermarket – just to see what ‘hypey hooks’ are being used to get people to pick up the latest issue and buy it.

The hyped up hooks really never change – they just get recycled and re-used throughout the year – …year after year.

You might recognize some of these Hyped-Up, Fitness and Fat Loss Headlines:

- 2 Fruits That Burn Fat While You Sleep!

- New Vegetable Shrinks Fat Cells!

- Top 6 Foods That Block Fat Deposits!

- Lose 11 Pounds in 4 Days With This Soup!

- Shed the Flab With These 5 Juices!

- New Grain Reduces Fat Stores in Belly!

- 3 Foods That Literally Melt Cellulite!

Yeah – you know the headlines I’m talking about…

Now – here is the ‘Un-Hyped’ truth…

When you replace processed, high calorie, low nutrient foods – with minimally processed, high nutrient value foods – you are going to get health and fitness promoting benefits. The magical powers that created us and the universe we are a part of – also created THE perfect foods for optimal human existence.

The creation of perfect foods for optimal human existence is no accident. As a matter of fact – the foods that are produced by nature are as miraculous as the creation of me and you. Think about it…

Without food and water we die. With high quality food and water – we live long and healthy – generally speaking.

With low quality food and water – we can sustain life – but usually its a very low quality of life that usually ends more painfully and sooner than nature would prefer.

I talk more about this in the book – but for now – here is a list I put together for a client, recently, and I thought it would be great to make this available to you and the rest of the world – so here it is:

Here is the PDF version you can download and print to post in your kitchen or office, etc… =>Fitness Foods for Body Fat Reduction and Energy Enhancement

“Joey’s Fatness to Fitness sends a message that is so often overlooked in training programs available today . . . that fitness is NOT limited to washboard abs and big bulging muscles. Our bodies are a direct reflection of how we feel about ourselves, respect ourselves, and even how seriously we take our commitment to our loved ones to be a good role model and to live long enough and healthy enough to enjoy them for years to come.

“The mind-body connection is not to be underestimated and Joey beautifully demonstrates this to us in his book by emphasizing the importance of feeling good inside and out. The plan is simplified in a way that you can tailor it to your needs and desired outcome. And, like Joey, my favorite is the dark chocolate!”

Fatness to Fitness is so much more than just a book. It’s a step-by-step guide to looking and feeling your very best.
