"Professional athletes or every day person - if you are interested in excellence in your conditioning, these methods are your answers." -Terry Francona, former player and Manager of the 2007 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox
"There is only one way to describe the results:'incredible'. Bert's knowledge [is] unsurpassed. Many experts wanted to use drastic measures to restore my mobility. Bert's plan of stretching, weight lifting, rest and nutrition has me moving better than i have for 10 years." - Bill Wright, University of Arizona Men's Tennis Coach
I'm writing to offer my unsolicited endorsement of Bert Seelman. I've been a practicing chiropractor for 20 years, involved primarily with musculoskeletal problems, sports injuries, etc., Bert has always been ahead of the curve with respect to his training methods and ideas. I‘m constantly amused to read about the newest training breakthroughs and ideas about nutrition and athletic performance. They are invariably where Bert was 10-15 ears ago. I'm confident that want to know what the cutting edge of training principles and ideas will be in the next 10-15 years, all you have to do is ask Bert. More importantly, to know and work with Bert Seelman is to associate with an ethical, moral and passionate human being who brings not just his knowledge but his heart to his work. There are few who you will ever meet like Bert. – G.L., D.C., D.A.B.C.O. Doctor Chiropractic Board Certified Doctor Acupuncture Doctor Orthopedics
"Challenging, efficient, and rewarding... 2nd year the results were exceptional." - Tom Waddell, Major League Baseball player, second in ERA in 1984 to Willie Hernandez
I want to thank you for always being available to help... Now, if we change the way our society deals with obesity (i.e., get everyone to take a few lessons from Bert), we would make some real progress!" - Jerry Alexander, P.C., L.L.C.; won $1.2 billion litigation of Fen-Phen
“The most important aspect of your work is the knowledge you gave me. Knowledge is power and the ability to change. My body learned a better way to be. To leave that learning is to move toward disease. Your program is not for everyone. It is only for those who take seriously their commitment to their own health and well-being. Otherwise, let them go to one of the many “feel good” operators in “looking-good” health clubs who will all-too-willingly share their incomplete and often ill-informed version of the truth about what it means to be “in-condition.” They often do more harm than good. There is only one Performance Fitness Systems, Inc. It speaks to wellness. It speaks to balance. It speaks to hard-earned fitness.” — T.B, co-founder and co-owner of Team Banks video producers of the 1998 Discovery Channel Eco-Challenge.
“I am an endocrinologist in charge of the endocrinology teaching program… I have known Mr. Bert Seelman for over a year both professionally and personally. I have found his program (which includes weight training, cardiovascular exercise, dietary therapy, and nutritional supplements,) to be medically sound and extremely effective. He has worked in a professional manner with my patients with astounding results. One diabetic patient with concomitant obesity and hypertension was able to come off her insulin, oral agents, blood pressure medication, and diuretics with two months of starting his program. His knowledge of nutrition and weight training is superb. I have no hesitancy whatsoever about recommending him and his extremely effective program.” – M.S.P, M.D.
(spina-bifida, stroke, cancer, MS, dementia)
To whom it may concern,
I had first heard of Bert Seelman of Performance Fitness Systems / Results are Proof, in casual conversation from my Dad and stepmom. They were both on his program and learning about nutrition, some herbal remedies and exercise. My father was at high risk for prostate cancer and during the program was able to lower his PSA count significantly. My stepmother had had continual problems over the years with cancerous moles on her skin and was having them surgically removed every six months or so. She was also able to diminish calcification in her breast tissue with Bert’s help.
When I really started hearing more about Bert was when my sister was diagnosed with MS and my dad had convinced her to go and see Bert and work with him for a couple of weeks. She was extremely overworked and stressed, nutritionally lacking, but Bert nor two other professionals who work closely with him thought she had MS. They concluded that the symptoms were acting like MS, but it wasn’t. Nevertheless he put her on the program, because she was in dire need of a lifestyle change, MS or not. She had a lessening of the symptoms within weeks, increased in vitality and significant reduction of her symptoms.
I consulted Bert immediately when my daughter, Alondra she was born with Spina Bifida. When she was born she had a fluid filled lesion on her lower spine. Some of the nerves were out of the spinal column and in the sac. Luckily the spinal cord was not out of the canal as well. She had her first operation on her second day of life to close up the bottom of the spine and put the nerves back. She had her second operation on her eighth day of life to have a shunt put in after she was found to have Hydrocephalus. As the hospital personnel were throwing all kinds of information and statistics and possible conditions she might have to deal with. This was totally beyond the scope of anything I had ever learned about in my time studying health, herbs and healing in general.
I began the program with Bert, while I was in the hospital with my newborn. Bert informed me that the baby would receive everything she would need nutritionally for her healing in my breast milk. At this point I knew I would have to do everything I could with my own nutrition to ensure her future health. Because of what I did, today she is on track with her all her development in all areas. She is in the top percentiles for height for her age. She has thrived when they thought she wouldn’t. She walks when they said she might not. We have reversed any conditions associated with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus.
My dad was even able to help my grandmother. With some basic supplementation and electrolytes, of Bert’s advice, she made great improvements with her dementia.
My dad has been on Bert’s program for about two years. He has reduced his PSA count, which when high can indicate prostate cancer. During the summer, when he returned to the east coast to visit family, we were all surprised when he had a stroke. The truth is, if he hadn’t been in the shape he was in, nutritionally and physically he wouldn’t have made it. When he regained consciousness, he was paralyzed on his right side. Over the next few days he regained the feeling in his right leg and torso but remained paralyzed on the right side of his face and the right arm. His speech was also impaired greatly. After leaving the ICU he was transferred to a so called top rehabilitation center where he spent three weeks as an inpatient and over three months as an outpatient. This rehab center is renowned and could not produce any significant results.
When my dad showed up at Bert’s facility in Tucson eight months later, he could barely feel or move his right arm below the elbow, let alone his hand. After three weeks working with Bert and his associate Marie, he has full mobility of his arm and hand with only some fine tuning left to do with the fine motor skills in his hand. Bert has started working on the right side of the face and since then his speech has improved.
I have been amazed at how Bert has helped my whole family. I have studied and practiced several forms of bodywork and have studied nutrition and herbs over the years, but Bert and his associates have such a greater understanding of how the body works that I have not seen anywhere else. Since then I have been studying and now have been offered an opportunity to start an extension of the services that Bert Seelman’s Performance Fitness Systems offers. I will now be able to not only share knowledge, but, to quote Bert, be able to share the “working knowledge.”
Artemisia Petti , P.F.S. Associate
The past three years have been the most difficult and frustrating periods in my life when it should been the most satisfying and rewarding. Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tucson I have seen our program grow from a 3,000 sq. ft. office to 15,000 sq. ft. with a recreation center and educational component. We can now provide hundreds of additional at-risk children new programs and opportunities that were only dreams three years ago. The growth was many obstacles and unexpected financial setbacks. Unfortunately, the same drive and determination that led to the completion of this project also led to my physical deterioration. If you had not been there as a mentor and consultant not have made It this far. The most astonishing truly sad aspects are that I only permitted myself to accept part of what you were teaching. While a half dozen medical doctors were treating my symptoms no one was able to pinpoint the cause. Two years went by before they determined that I have a nerve disease as well as Post-polio syndrome. The basic treatment is exactly what you have been telling me for the past 30 months. I was also told that if I started treating this a couple of years ago my condition would not have deteriorated to this point and my prognosis would brighter. I was amazed that each time I saw a doctor they would tell me, in a clinical way, exactly what you were telling me in a simple common sense approach. You always explained it to me in such basic terms that It actually seemed too simple to be true. I thought It had to be more complicated and that I needed to have the many tests and evaluations that were prescribed. Your whole philosophy of balancing EXERCISE, NUTRITION and REST made sense to me but I felt that I could work through the fatigue and pain I believed that by exercising and working extremely hard I could downplay the other components and maintain my physical strength and performance. I have never been the type to cut back or slow down. I actually felt guilty if I even considered slowing down. As I look back to 14 or 15 years ago, when you first helped me with the three orthopedic operations, I remember that you were telling me the same thing. If I had followed your advise in all three areas Instead of pushing the limits on exercising, going part way on the nutrition and completely ignoring the recuperation I would be writing a much different letter today. I would with the success of Big Brothers Big Sisters while at the same good about my health and the my life. goal Is to finally take the knowledge you have provided over the many years of our friendship and use it to gain back as much of my health as I can. You gave me the tools and the knowledge but I thought it was just TOO SIMPLE. I learned the hard way but at least I have learned. I hope that you can use this letter to show other “stubborn” diets that it really is that SIMPLE. You have the experience and the knowledge to help many people . However, your business is no different from mine. We can only help those people who are willing to listen and want to accept what we offer. You truly care about people and it Is important for you to continue educating us about how to treat our bodies in order for us our goals of fitness and performance. Thank you for not giving up on me. - F.K. Past President Big Borthers, Big Sisters, Tucson, AZ
