    Fit in 5 is a great book for anyone who wants to stay motivated in their workouts or move towards a healthy lifestyle with exercise as a vital component.

    Fit in 5 is an incredibly informative book for anyone who wants to begin a healthy lifestyle. Not only does Greg Whyte provide a variety of exercises at varying levels of difficulty, but he provides valid and accurate reasoning behind the exercises. Whyte explains the purpose behind targeting different muscle groups and provides examples for those at varying levels of difficulty.

    The introduction of the book provides useful information and guidance on how to create a whole lifestyle of health, including diet, motivation, and attitude. Whyte recognizes and pushes the importance of not just adding diet to a daily routine, but encourages the individual to change their lifestyle to incorporate an attitude of health. For those who are just beginning to work out, it can be overwhelming to know how to structure workouts or even know where to begin. Fit in 5 provides detailed information on how a workout should be structured, including how duration, frequency, and intensity can impact the health benefits of a workout.

    As someone who works out regularly, my biggest struggle is maintaining the motivation. Whyte provides easy ways to stay motivated while working out and options for creating diverse physical activities to keep the workouts exciting and engaging. This books shows that workouts do not have to be work, but can be in integral and fun part to everyday living.

    It was incredibly helpful to have the picture guides for the 5-,10-, and 30 minute workouts. I was able to easily see the different positions and skills need between the easy, medium, and hard exercises.

    Overall, a great book for any beginner or someone who wants to re-engage their body in exercise and move towards an overall healthy lifestyle.

    I really like this book

    This book is great. It is very understandable and the exercises aren't so complicated that you can't follow like some books are.
