Library Journal
Physical therapist and personal trainer Rhodes, trained at Columbia University, provides a comprehensive and realistic step-by-step program to getting maximum benefits from exercise. By using postural evaluation and correct body mechanics, along with the simple exercises outlined in the book, one can work out safely and thoroughly without risking or exacerbating bodily injury. Intended for use as a manual, the book provides illustrations and guidelines for sessions designed to strengthen and stabilize different muscle groups, exercises to develop flexibility and natural alignment, and action plans to improve cardiovascular capacity for people at all levels of fitness. An exercise log is included, as are bibliographies, appendixes, and a resource list for further study. This encouraging and intelligently written book belongs in all wellness collections and in public and academic libraries that support health-related or physical education curricula. Anyone who is serious about physical fitness or who works in the field should read this well-conceived book.--Deborah Anne Broocker, Georgia Perimeter Coll.
