Though we all desire a healthy and happy life, it is ironic that we often follow a path that is complex and self-destructive. One never knows which words will provide the kind of insights and inspiration to help us right the course. Each poem in this book developed in response to the struggles of the many individuals who have tried to implement the simple but often difficult solutions to the obstacles they faced with regard to exercise and food. For those who face such obstacles, it is the author’s hope that these poems will strike a responsive chord, guiding you toward constructive changes that will make a positive difference in your life. Once you begin to travel this path, you will be able to focus your energy and attention on that which is truly important. Jerzy Gregorek has been mentoring people for more than 25 years to help them attain a happy and healthy lifestyle. He is the co-creator, together with his wife Aniela, of The Happy Body Program.
Jerzy Gregorek immigrated to the United States together with his wife Aniela from Poland in 1986, as political refugees during the Solidarity Movement. An accomplished athlete, he subsequently won four World Weightlifting Championships and established one world record. In 2000, Jerzy and Aniela founded UCLA's weightlifting team, becoming its head coaches. As co-creator of The Happy Body Program, Jerzy has been mentoring people for more than 30 years, helping them attain a happy and healthy lifestyle. The poems in this book developed in response to the struggles of the many individuals who have tried to implement the simple but often difficult solutions to the obstacles they faced with regard to exercise and food. In 1998, Jerzy earned an MFA in writing from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. His poems and translations have appeared in numerous publications, including The American Poetry Review. His poem "Family Tree" was the winner of Amelia magazine's Charles William Duke Longpoem Award in 1998. In 2002, the National Endowment for the Arts awarded Jerzy a literature fellowship to support the translation from Polish into English of selected poems by Maurycy Szymel. This culminated in the publication in 2013 of The Shy Hand of a Jew by Cross-Cultural Communications, which the following year published a collection of Jerzy's own poetry, entitled Sacred and Scared. As a teenager from a poor family in communist Poland, Jerzy's circumstances led to his becoming an alcoholic from age 15 to 18, during which time his life was largely a blur. At the age of 23, as an Olympic style weightlifting athlete, he incurred an injury that resulted in the paralysis of his legs for several months, removing him from the sport for some 18 years. In this book, Jerzy creatively combines his knowledge and experience in coaching and lifestyle training-utilizing his personal experiences with addiction, injury and recovery-with his talent as a poet, to help guide readers toward constructive changes, to make a positive difference in their lives. Jerzy and Aniela live with their daughter, Natalie, in Woodside, California.
