International Number 1 Bestseller

By combining proven training techniques, entertaining and motivational fighter pilot anecdotes, and a sound scientific approach, Stay on Target is a paradigm shifting guidebook that will change the way you approach fitness and nutrition.

Whether you are a beginner or a serious athlete, you can learn how to get the body you have always wanted. Author and experienced F-16 instructor pilot Chris Lehto will show you why you have not reached your fitness objectives in the past. It starts by understanding that our current system is flawed:Your body doesn’t burn food. Our current calorie counting system is over 100 years old and is incorrect.Nobody knows how to correctly measure calories used in resistance training. We measure anaerobic processes through oxygen (these processes are an-aerobic).Fad diets are not sustainable.Long sessions of cardio are boring and inefficient.This book will take you through everything you need to know to apply an effective and sustainable long-term program in your own life.

You will learn to apply the same mindset and techniques to your fitness and nutrition programs that fighter pilots use to consistently perform under high-stress conditions.
Develop consistency in your fitness program. Use processes that will change your mindset from “I don’t have the time,” to “I can’t wait to see my progress this week.”

Learn the most effective way to lose fat and gain muscle in the least amount of time. By using resistance training, compound movements, and a small amount of cardio after you lift, you can maximize fat loss and minimize time. You will have a stronger, leaner body in less time.

Develop a long term livable diet. Keep your food to approximately 1/3 fats, 1/3 carbs, and 1/3 protein. Eat absolutely whatever you want one day a week and be amazed when you reach your fitness goals.
Stay on Target explains clearly how to use simple combat proven techniques to maintain motivation, increase the effectiveness of your workouts, and stick with a livable long term food plan.

With anecdotes and scientific evidence, Chris explains that it’s not about intensity of effort, it’s about consistency. Stay on Target will change the way you approach fitness and nutrition. It will give you a step-by-step guide to get in the best shape of your life and have fun while doing it.

Use this book to Stay on Target, and get in the best shape of your life.

Not occasionally or when we’re on a “health kick” but to earnestly and permanently change our thinking towards our bodies and how important they are to our happiness and longevity. THAT IS WHAT THIS BOOK DID FOR US! We really…

As a formal personal trainer, and someone who took both fitness and nutrition very seriously, I have to say that this book has reinvigorated my motivation and desire to get started, again, because, as the author says – it doesn’t matter what setbacks you have, it only matters that you never quit. I am a full time (sometimes more!) working mom, with kids in school and in daycare, and I “used to be” – hate that I have to put that in quotes – so diligent with both by fitness and…
