Hello and Welcome!

My name is Ray Wu and I'm the author of The One Minute Workout. For those of you who haven’t read the book, I created this workout as a way to get myself back into shape after years of neglect. The goal of this workout system isn’t to turn you into a fitness model or a bodybuilder, but to give you a no-nonsense way to improve your health by helping you move and feel better. It just so happens that this system can also help you build significant lean muscle and tremendous functional strength.

Here’s how it came to be. To make a long story short, I used to be quite active playing many sports and studying martial arts. Then I started working long hours during my medical residency, which left me with little time to exercise like I used to. Before I knew it, I was overweight, out-of-shape, and in pain from sitting so many hours each day. After many failed attempts to get back in shape, I finally created a workout system that worked with my busy schedule and my lack of access to exercise equipment. Most importantly, it helped me get out of the chair regularly and eliminated my pain from prolonged sitting. Now, I feel great and am in the best shape of my life. After seeing how well it worked for me, I started sharing it with others, many who have reported great results as well. This book and website were created to help even more people reap the same benefits we have enjoyed from this highly effective system.

As a medical doctor trained in internal medicine, I've seen people from many walks of life. Almost universally, people want to stay healthy but many don't know how or where to start. Sometimes, it’s due to a lack of knowledge or a lack of motivation. Other times, it’s due to confusion from all of the conflicting news stories and studies coming out. As a result, many people develop bodily pains and health conditions that limit what they can do and how much they can get out of life. Unfortunately, many doctors are time-strapped and ill-equipped to help their patients beyond giving generic advice like “eat better and exercise more”. The One Minute Workout is designed to be a tool for clinicians and patients alike to combat obesity epidemic that is underway around the world.

My goal here is to help you become healthier so you can get the most out of your life. Through this blog, I plan to explore some of my insights on the topics of fitness, nutrition, and health, especially those that didn’t make it into the book. I hope you find it useful, a source of inspiration, and a trigger to take action. To your health and happy reading!
