Joe's Contrology™ is finally a 100-year-old, overnight success. 

(New York, NY)- Although well-know in the 1920's-30's in the boxing world and in the dance world since the 1940's and recommended by Martha Graham and George Balanchine, this low to moderate-impact, fitness method is now available to the general public worldwide.

There are several interesting aspects of this success story:
