An important work. The real deal. Fitness is important to me. I wasn’t brought up in a fitness-aware household, so I’ve had to seek out and integrate a lot of knowledge on my own. I’ve taken college classes in the topic, talked to nutritionists and personal trainers, and done google searches and sifted through a lot of information.This book lays it all out for you. The information presented is in line with what I’ve learned from reputable sources, and it’s written in an accessible and non-judgmental tone…

A great read on physical fitness I highly recommend this book. The information is based on the latest scientific research instead of some fad. The only exercise book many of us will ever need (until the next edition.)
