    Worth it!

    I purchased this book a few months prior to my wedding last year. I wanted to lose about 15-20 lbs. & just tone & shape up my body to look better naked & in a swimming suit. I had NEVER purchased a fitness book before, but all of the videos & fad diets I'd tried in the past had gotten me no where. I'd been intriged by the title & figured 'what the heck'. Within about 6 weeks I'd accomplished more than I'd ever hoped possible! I combined the program with a low-carb diet and I was just amazed with my results! The book is very informative & certainly inspirational. Just like the other review said, I could hardly wait to put the book down & start working out. And because there are so many different exersizes to choose from, I did not get tired of working out. I actually enjoyed it. The only negative things that I really have to say are that it takes more like a 1/2 an hour to complete the workouts & I wish that it would touch on arms too. I will also say that it was a little difficult to concentrate on some many instructions at once, such as breathing, counting, contracting, visulizing & focusing on the movements all at once, but after a few times it got easier- and I still saw results, so... I would recommend that everyone give it a try. If it worked that well for me, than I know it can work for other people too-just remember that you have to combine it with a good diet as well (I never tried any of the recipes in the book). With a little effort you should see maximum results in minimum time-worth every penny!

    very well written

    This book has alot of good information. I like that you get different exercises (that are broken down into specific target areas)and you can basically write your own training program and change it around as needed. Look great naked has alot of good training and nutritional info. I would reccomend this book to any woman who wants to look and feel better.

    Totally Awesome!

    I¿ll admit, I bought the book because I was intrigued by the title. But boy was I glad I did! Make no mistake, this is a serious fitness book with a lot of substance. It¿s NOT for those who just want to take it easy in their workout. The first few chapters are very inspirational. It begins with some interesting info on why women store fat more easily than men, why quick fix programs don¿t work, and what it really takes to get your body into shape. The author doesn¿t pull any punches and says flat out that you have to put in the effort, but he does it in a way that really makes you want to start working out. It then describes in detail the specific exercise program for working each of the three women¿s trouble zones (abs, butt and thighs). The organization here is excellent. It¿s very thorough and covers everything from sets to reps and everything in between (and yes, the workout does only take about 15 minutes!). It even describes the exact equipment needed to do the workout at home (you can do the routine either in the gym or at home). But what¿s really cool is that the routine is designed in a way that makes it simple to create perfect workouts every time you train--even if you don¿t have any background in exercise. I¿ve never seen anything like this before (and I¿ve read a lot of fitness books) and it¿s a real help. The last part of the book deals with nutrition. I was extremely impressed with the straightforward approach taken. There is an indepth discussion of carbs, protein and fat, with specific recommendations for apportioning each in the right amount as well as a formula for figuring out how many calories to take in. But it doesn¿t get overly technical with diet and it¿s again laid out in a very easy to understand way. The section on tips for losing those last few pounds was especially helpful. The book ends with about fifty or so healthy recipes, many of them contributed by top fitness models. All in all, I¿d say this is a must-read for any woman who is looking to get into shape. It¿s motivating, well written, easy to read and, best of all, has lots of great information that you can really apply to your workout. I would have given it six stars if I could have!

    Good for you, Totally Awesome

    It is nice that someone takes the time to really give input rather than just non-descript reviews. Potential buyers WANT details especially regarding the opportunity to look great naked! Thank you for your detailed review! This will be a purchase for me.

    Respond to Totally Awesome!!!!

    To Totally Awesome: Are you really a customer? Your review is just way too commercial. I have to admit you make it sound great, but almost too great. Are you sure you didn't actually write the book? Come on, tell us the truth, is it really that good? I will bite though, the title is intriguing.
