A groundbreaking self-defense and fitness book for women by a ballerina-turned-self-defense expert. Learn how to become your own weapon of self-defense and fitness so that you can create and target your best life. After ballerina Avital Zeisler was savagely attacked as a young woman, she lived in fear--until she took action to train with experts in self-defense from around the world. Seeking a method specific to women and using Krav Maga as a base, she created her own self-defense program: the Soteria Method. It was an immediate sensation, and is now in demand by everyone from corporate executives to Hollywood stars--such as Amanda Seyfried, Megan Boone, Keri Russell, and Matthew Rhys, to name a few--who seek her classes both for the self-defense and for the intense, body-sculpting workout. Unique and empowering, "Weapons of Fitness" will help get you into incredible shape--and just might save your life.
"I have this confidence that I don't feel I ever had... this is so much more than self-defense." --Amanda Seyfried "Learning the Soteria Method was the right thing to help me find strength I didn't know I had." --Megan Boone "Working out this way makes you feel fierce." --Keri Russell
