"Drive, determination and hard work are essential ingredients for success. Joel Harper is a strength maker and his new book Mind Your Body will put you to work and definitely leave you looking and feeling better for it." -- Clive Davis, legendary record label executive and Chief Creative Officer at Sony Music Entertainment "When I had to transform from a scrawny comedian/musician to an ass-kicking alien for Men In Black III, Joel was the guy they sent me to. He helped me gain the stature and strength I needed. Joel made exercise interesting. I didn't think that was possible." -- Jemaine Clement, actor, musician, and star of Flight of the Conchords "I thought I'd been giving 100%, but I was wrong. Thanks to Joel, I have found a way to push past my comfort zone. Simply put, Joel has shown me what I'm truly capable of." -- Jenna Wolfe, Today Show lifestyle and fitness correspondent "Joel's strategy is tailored to lengthen, strengthen, stretch and tone. Whether you're a workout fanatic or have skipped the gym for a few months - maybe years! - this program will challenge and reward you. That's the power of Joel." -- Daphne Oz, cohost of The Chew "I've never exercised as efficiently, intelligently, nor as thoughtfully as I have with Joel. In fact, it begins with his client's thought process--Joel's workouts are from the inside out. I'm definitely stronger because of my workouts with Joel Harper." -- Ilana Glazer, comedian, actress, and star of Broad City "The book gives substance to this long time quote, 'Whether you believe you can or cannot, you are correct.' - Henry Ford " -- WOMEN'S FORUM
