Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Popular fitness guru Jonny Bowden delivers a no-nonsense blueprint for getting in shape in this straightforward, energetic read. Emphasizing the importance of tailoring any diet or exercise plan to the specific individual, the book outlines an eight-week program guided more by principles and suggestions than by strict rules. But readers will make no mistake about the fact that Bowden's program requires a firm dedication to good health, as the author conveys his fitness strategies with a positive but resolute attitude that is as clear as it is contagious.

What makes the Shape Up program so unique is that it truly encourages -- requires, actually -- readers to probe their own eating and exercise habits and find an appropriate balance that works for them. To this end, Bowden offers thorough chapters on nutrition, food supplements, and the importance of making time to exercise. An excellent method for getting started involves writing down various positive steps that can be taken to introduce better eating and exercising habits into daily routines. The program itself is outlined, detailing specific journal entries, tasks, exercise and eating goals, and personal assessments for each of the eight weeks.

But the real gem here is Bowden's chapter on taking control of what the events in your life will mean to you, writing your own story instead of allowing life's occurrences to determine your reactions. This chapter alone provides plenty of motivation for even the most confidence-challenged reader. And choosing to view setbacks or difficulties in a personally advantageous light is a lesson that will prove valuable in other areas of readers' lives.

This personable read provides all the tools readers need to make smart choices about their personal fitness plan and to incorporate this plan into everyday life. (Karen Burns)

Bill Humphries
In my fifteen years as a trainer and a coach in the fitness industry I have prided myself and my company on our ability to get results, particularly with actors and models, whose careers depend on achieving them. Jonny Bowden has been my teacher; his input has been the 'secret ingredient' for many of my greatest successes.
Oz Garcia
Jonny Bowden is one of the most knowledgeable nutritionists I've ever known. I could not have written The Balance without his invaluable input and wisdom.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In a previous life, Jonny Bowden was, like Eartha Kitt, a professional musician, touring with Herbie Hancock and Carly Simon. However, for the past three years, he has come to be known as the hugely popular weight-loss coach on iVillage.com. With Jonny Bowden's Shape Up!: The 8-Week Program to Transform Your Body, Your Health, and Your Life, he expands beyond the Web to reach fitness fanatics who want to own a copy of his program, which, he maintains, focuses on the individual, and not just her weight-loss or exercise goal. Confident, informative and direct, Bowden has a voice that commands attention. ( May) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    An Intelligent, Amusing with a touch of New York approach to shaping-up

    Jonny Bowden provides a thorough approach to setting one's priorities. It parallel's Oprah's with honesty and even humor as well as a whole universe look at your individual body, life styles, needs and even frustrations. The journal step is mystifyingly effective and provided the self-revelations I needed to not just lose weight and get fit, but clean my closets and put photos into books. That overwhelming feeling that used to lead me to the fridge now funnels into productivity in smaller accessible steps. In other words, the sympathy and 'holier-than-thou 'I did it you can too'' attitude is replaced with a great alternative: honesty with yourself and your habits, and being OK with both. Now let's work on them....
