Wayne Caparas Launches New Fitness Book, 'Biologic Revelation'
by BWW News Desk - May 17, 2017

Once the scientific community and common genetic truth finally have their say, everything we do to get fit and stay that way is going to change. BioLogic Revelation is a fitness breakthrough of the highest order, as every facet draws from an abundance of independent research performed by many of the world's leading biologists and physiologists. Together, these new discoveries have revealed a profoundly powerful link between specific muscle fiber activity over very short-durations and our ability to improve metabolic health, fight disease, and slow the aging process in incomparable fashion. Though the revelation seemed paradoxical and too good to be true when it first came to light nearly twenty years ago, today it is scientifically clear and entirely logical. With more than two hundred peer-reviewed research studies and thirty years of success stories to support or prove our conclusions, the BioLogic 10 Minute No-Sweat Anti- Aging Workout is a fitness activity every man and woman alive should immediately adopt-or at very least adapt into their current regimen.
