    As a health counselor, coach and acupuncturist, I have come to appreciate the wide selection of titles offered by
    Human Kinetics and especially those of Delavier.  The illustrations are so clear & precise, presented here along
    with photos and simple descriptions of basic yet powerful exercises.  After I show clients these illustrations many
    are motivated to buy their own copies.  I have found other more detailed or complex anatomy charts & books to
    be too intimidating or unclear to clients, as to precisely what will be affected by an exercise.

    If you are a beginner at working out, or a “back–again–after–a–long–pause”, you will find this an excellent starting
    point, whether you are working with a trainer or not.  If you’ve been working on yourself for a while, this might be a
    tweak to inspire you onward.  The nutritional section (8 out of over 100 pages) is almost a cute throw-away, so don’t
    expect more than general concepts that can be explored in further depth elsewhere.  The richness of this book is in
    the motivational visuals!

    Remember, the four foundations of health are:
    1.  Diet & exercise!
    2.  Diet & exercise!
    3.  Diet & exercise!
    4.  Diet & exercise!
