Ithaca, NY – With the overwhelming amount of information out there on how to go about athletic training, it’s hard to know what works and what doesn’t.  Fortunately, Kyle Hollenbeck — business owner, Dryden native and K9 Handler for the Cornell University Police Department — has just made this easy.

In his new book, Rise Above The Rest, Hollenbeck walks you through the in’s and out’s of what it really takes to succeed in sport. Unlike many other strength and conditioning books that only address the physical training realm, Rise Above The Rest looks at both training and nutrition so no stone is left untouched.  The end result is an athlete that is stronger, more powerful, and has a constant supply of energy to tackle whatever physical demands come their way.

Rise Above The Rest has just been released and is currently selling for a price of $9.99. After working with hundreds of athletes over the years, Hollenbeck has combined all this experience into one very comprehensive guide that will teach every athlete, regardless of their skill level, how to get to the next stage of their athletic career.

The book highlights specific training programs, discusses the theories and concepts behind how those programs originated, reviews what proper athletic nutrition means while teaching readers how to put that information into practice. It will give any athlete who picks up this book the confidence in knowing they are being well taken care of.

Currently training clients out of his very own gym, Valor Strength & Conditioning, which is located in Ithaca, NY. Hollenbeck has been living and breathing sport for years.  Starting out as a former athlete himself before going on to train athletes of a variety of sports – soccer, softball, and baseball to name just a few, his experience spans from high school students up to those at the pro level.

Rise Above The Rest is a must ready for any athlete that wants to improve their physique, increase their strength, and promote a healthier lifestyle.
