Overview

BURN FAT, NOT TIME
 
The ultimate get-in-shape-fast, at-home, no-equipment-required program designed especially for women—from the ultra-fit Special Operations trainer and author of You Are Your Own Gym
 
Say goodbye to long, tedious hours at the gym and boring, muscle-depleting cardio exercises. Elite trainer and fitness guru Mark Lauren is here to show you that the best—and only—equipment you need to get in shape is free and always accessible: your own body.
 
This quick and easy program will save you time, money, and maybe your life. In less than thirty minutes, three times a week—and with no machinery or weights—you can achieve the toned arms, flatter abs, tighter buns, and killer legs you’ve always wanted. You won’t build bulk, you’ll build strength, and turn your body into a fat-burning machine.
 
Featuring 120 different exercises in five movement categories—Pulling, Squatting, In-Line Pushing, Perpendicular Pushing and Bending—and with three ascending levels of difficulty, Body by You ensures that you’ll never get bored by the same static workout. And with such a small time commitment—less than one percent of your time every week!—it is a fun program that can be effortlessly incorporated with your work and family plans. With Mark Lauren as your motivational guide and nutritional coach, Body by You will help you meet your individual fitness goals. Ultimately, it’s not about moving through the gym with ease, it’s about moving through your life with ease—leaner, stronger, more confident, and with more energy.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Fitness through weight training is a well-known concept, but a lot of myths surround it. Lauren and Clark (coauthors, You Are Your Own Gym: The Bible of Bodyweight Exercises) advise women to skip the fancy machines, baby weights, and stationary bikes and instead utilize their own body weight by adopting the authors' system of exercises. Copiously illustrated, this book has workouts for everyone from new mothers to Special Forces operatives. They include eating advice, though this is not a diet book per se. Recommended for serious exercisers. VERDICT This will be of little use to those with arthritis, but excellent for others.

    Highly recommended

    Exercises escalate to difficult postures/movements but anyone can start with the initial exercises. If you remain motivated, you will see improvement in your strength and flexibiity. Prefer these exercises as I can do them anywhere. Reviewed the book with a trainer at my gym and they were impressed with the exercises. Like the author, they stress proper nutrition with the exercise program. I also purchsed the Nook version so I can have the exercise program with me when I travel!
