Foreword to BioLogic Revelation
If you reviewed the expert endorsements, you already realize that this is not your typical health and fitness book. In fact, many of your presuppositions to fitness, eating, and exercise will be profoundly challenged. I encourage you to let that sink in. I had to do that very thing as I read the contents. There is a reason the word “revelation” is in the book’s title. For many, this book will be what some call, “a light-bulb” moment. There may be an unveiling of understanding that you never before considered. You may have your own personal epiphany concerning health and fitness. I encourage you to be open to that possibility. We live in an era where people are increasingly health conscious and time sensitive. To be able to navigate both concerns with integrity would be a welcome relief to untold millions who are struggling to do one or the other. BioLogic Revelation offers that hope.

Wayne Caparas recruited me straight out of college to work alongside him to lead the relatively large and diversified fitness operation that was his brainchild. I was a two-sport athlete from New York who wanted to start my career where I could help people, and Wayne’s team was widely celebrated for launching new initiatives that empower people from all walks of life. It was a rare opportunity in a thriving fitness think tank, and the talent Wayne recruited before me was extraordinary, my older brother Michael (his V.P. of Operations) included. It was an exciting time in an important emerging industry, and we sincerely put our hearts into the way we cared for our members and the various communities we served. This was a core ethic of the organization, a direct reflection of its leader, and the primary reason I moved a thousand miles from home to start my professional life. Always the visionary, Wayne was a different kind of fitness innovator. He was very often one step ahead in recognizing future trends for both the members and the fitness industry at large. I saw thousands of lives changed in my time as Wayne’s lieutenant, and I was well aware that his published works were reaching tens of thousands around the world. BioLogic Revelation is his greatest effort yet, and it should soon help millions more.
After several years in Wayne’s camp, I went on to serve in a variety of Christian ministries. Most notably, I served alongside Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman for twelve years as the Founding Executive Director of Show Hope—the orphan care and adoption ministry that is a most beautiful reflection of God’s wisdom and love for the vulnerable. Serving alongside the Chapmans and the Show Hope team all those years grew my heart and expanded my discernment. Through my role with the Chapmans, I experienced time and again how God loves to use humble people who are dedicated to sharing their wisdom and insights for the betterment of others in the most miraculous ways. Wayne Caparas is one of those people, who through his dedication to gain wisdom and understanding, coupled with his love for people, has been used in remarkable ways. I was blessed to have gained the insights he imparted into me at the very beginning of my professional journey. They have served me well throughout my adult life, both as an advocate for the betterment of others and as the custodian of my personal health and the health of my family.

I have known Wayne Caparas for almost 30 years. At times, I have worked alongside Wayne as he was in the process of personally changing and altering the definitions of exercise, fitness, and aesthetics when it comes to deriving optimal benefits from “working out.” As a psychologist, I know the positive effect exercise can have on one’s emotional and psychological health. For this, I completed certification programs in group fitness and personal training. As a practitioner of both psychology and fitness, I firmly believe motivation and sustainability are the cornerstones of maintaining any fitness program. Biologic Revelation provides a mechanism for one to have joy and fun while participating in a fitness filled lifestyle. Starting on page 101 you will learn about “The Four Cornerstones of Motivation” which detail the importance of maintaining motivation in order to receive the tremendous benefits Wayne describes in his book. Wayne has put together a primer that is easy to read and absorb and put into action. As you spend time going through each chapter, you will find many new breakthroughs that are based on current clinical and scientific research. Don’t let any of the jargon get in the way of your finding the true meaning of Biologic Revelation.
I have been a fitness enthusiast my entire life and, like Wayne, grew up during a time when admitting pain or discomfort was considered a weakness, and finding pleasure or having fun as a result of exercising was discouraged. Biologic Revelation provides a mechanism for one to have joy and fun while participating in a fitness filled lifestyle , as Wayne has boldly yet subtly described the importance of finding joy and sincere care for oneself and others. Like many in Wayne’s life, I am aware of how he has experienced physical and emotional pain and disappointments. What is unique about Wayne Caparas is that he discovers resources that propel him to recovery, and through BioLogic Revelation, he has found a way to show others how to do the same. Discovering the joy one feels as a result of feeling better both emotionally and physically is an ongoing and blessed accomplishment. Biologic Revelation provides the foundation for building that positive fitness mindset.
I know those in the fitness field will have difficulty upsetting their historic “apple carts.” But if they can be open to new discoveries and the secrets revealed in BioLogic Revelation, many lives will be saved, and the joy for life will be multiplicatively enhanced. In closing, I deeply respect the person Wayne Caparas has become. I admire the dedication, servitude, and perseverance he has demonstrated by writing this landmark book.
