    In terms of a “Fitness 101” approach to exercise, it doesn’t get much clearer or easily understandable than this book.

    That said, it tends to contradict itself at times (“bring music to the gym” // “if you can listen to music you’re not working hard enough”).

    Even so, the author’s quest to be comprehensive (it includes a section for kids and pregnant mothers) makes this book a useful tool for fitness enthusiasts of all ages, shapes, and sizes.

    I’ve read the first half, and this is a great book. My wife and I just joined a gym, and part of what keeps me motivated is information. I love knowing facts about fat-loss, calories, muscle mass, etc. That’s the reason I bought this book. It has been great for me. First of all, I love all Dummies books because they’re practical and I like the format. This one has really great, all-around information: from shoe advice to tips for using a treadmill and other machines at a gym. The authors frequently cite studies (briefly–nothing too technical) that have revealed new info about exercise. I recommend this book to anyone wanting to acquaint themselves with fitness facts, including the jargon. If, like me, you’re joining a gym, this is a great book to help keep you motivated. Go work out and then come home at night and read a chapter! You’ll feel more informed at the gym and less like an awkward beginner.

    Highly recommend this basic primer to anyone’s approach to general fitness and lifestyle changes. Loaded with simple approach to establishing rewarding lifestyle changes for good health. Loaded with great factual information normally charged for in high-tech sporting and fitness clubs as part of their included services. Will provide all you need to know to know and lots more FREE references for continued education and knowledge for starting and maintaining your own personal program. A MUST READ to avoid the hype of membership clubs and overly paid personal trainers. Puts you in the drivers seat if you still want to join a club or hire a personal trainer. Anyone who is serious about getting fit needs to read this book before doing anything.
