Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"When I need to get in shape fast, I know that David's the man. . . . I work out when I want to get toned for a job like a Victoria's Secret fashion show or the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. I take care of myself, but if I went to the gym on my own, I'd probably end up doing a little bit on the bicycle and calling it a day . . . but with David, I know I'll get some real results because he'll kick my butt into shape!"--Heidi Klum

"As a human being, a friend, and a personal trainer, David Kirsch has assisted me with so much. On a daily basis, he helps me free my mind, free my body, and free my spirit. David Kirsch's regime is not just a routine, it's an honoring process."--James King, supermodel

"With David Kirsch, I have been working out religiously--and with great fervor, too! I can honestly say I have never felt better about my body, its strength, and its flexibility. The energy I have now is stupendous. People tell me I look fabulous . . . I know I feel fabulous . . . and it just takes commitment and dedication and a workout with David to turn things around. Happy exercising."--Ivana Trump

"Let's just say you haven't seen the inside of a gym in, oh, 4 years . . . and that your main source of nutrition is movie-theater popcorn and licorice. And you finally decide this has to change (yes, I'm talking about myself). David Kirsch, the ultimate transformer, can pull you out of this mess. His exercise program is tough, no doubt about it, but it's also fun . . . David does it. David is Goliath."--Linda Wells, editor-in-chief, Allure magazine

It gave me essential information on how to eat healthly,exercise correctly for my body type, and to figure out why I eat the way I do----his program is my lifestyle now---its so freeing to do the work and get the results. I feel positive that fellow readers will experience the transformation in their lives as well.

    EXCELLENT!

    This was an excellent book! David really understands that everyone is different and gives MANY options for each suggestion in the book. I found this VERY supportive of my busy non-stop life of being a full time student and full time employee. Just reading the book has motivated me to get healthy!!!

    Outstanding!

    David helps you discover your mind-body connection. Fitness is a way of life, not a diet or a miracle exercise. I love the wide variety of exercises - boredom and time can be no excuse here! Whether you are in shape or are a fitness disaster - there is something for everyone - I highly recommend it!

    This book has changed my life!

    Thank you David - you have changed my life! Forget the excuse that you are over 45 and it's too late to change your body! I have been following David's plan for one month, and have dropped 4% body fat, and no longer watch the scale to follow my weight loss. My clothes tell the truth! David's sincerity and desire to change your attitude about exercise and eating is apparent in every chapter. And the recipes are delicious and easy! Chapter 5 is the key - and much of it has nothing to do with weight loss! I really believe that much of my success is due to grasping the importance of sound thinking - usually missing in fitness books. What are my goals, what kind of inner strength do I possess, what is my passion?? You told me 'I know you're going to succeed,' and you were right!!! THANK YOU!!!

    Motivational

    Sound Mind Sound Body is an amazingly motivational book. Unlike other diet and excercise books, this one is clear, easy to read, and all-inclusive; the focus is on living a healthy, well-balanced life, and not solely on dropping pounds or building muscle (although if you follow David Kirsch's guidelines, you will do both). Using his own personal stories as well as examples from various clients, Kirsch is not at all intimidating as some diet and excercise gurus can be. Instead, he is both encouraging and inspirational to those in need of a fresh start at healthy living.

    Excellent

    This book is great for people of all ages No matter how old you are, all of us want to stay fit. The book does not only help you with the excercise, but helps you out with the diet bringing the mind, body and soul together. What can I say David is great at what he does.

    Incredible!

    I'm a bikini model and this book really helps me. It is packed with work out techniques, diet tips, life advice, and strategies for how to create your own bikini boot camp. After finishing the six-week routine, my body and mind were in much better condi
