As a chiropractor specializing in integrated body alignment, I am constantly encouraging my patients to adopt a consistent program of exercise. After seeing Joan Pagano's book, 'Strength Training for Women', no need to look further! First of all, it is beautifully illustratd and formatted - no better inspiration to start an exercise program. Ms.Pagano has carefully selected the best in cutting edge exercises for all levels of capability. They can be conviently performed at home with a few props, and the illustrations guide you where to focus and where to 'feel it'. The author's credentials are impressive, allowing her, with her clinical experience, to offer side bar tips and FYI's that are standard of the industry. A big thumb's up for Joan Pagano and 'Strength Training for Women'.

I am a 21 year old college student, and love Joan's book. I have been looking at health and fitness books since I was a young teen. Not many women's training books include young teens, but this book has helpful suggestions for age 15 and up. Also depending on what your goal is, the book has different suggestions. For example, with the free weights, there is a suggested amount if you want to tone muscle or build bone mass. It's a great book that is easy to read. It also has things that you can do at the gym and at home. I highly recommend this book for women of all ages!

This is a 'must have' book for every female fitness enthusiast, from the beginner to advanced levels. It is refreshing to view a book like this! This book is written by a true expert in the field of health & exercise(unlike all the celebrity books that saturate the market today). The book provides a comprehensive review for women wanting to incorporate fitness into her home or at the gym. The exercises are easy to follow, photos visually captivating and the content is clear and concise for all to understand. I especially like 'the trainer's tips' and 'feel it here' features. I will recommend this book to all of my female clients seeking a reference book for their home library.

This book is outstanding for all age groups, but as a senior citizen who participates in an excellent exercise program at the local Senior Center, I recommend Joan Pagano's book as a supplement, to enhance and encourage at-home exercising. The contents are in easy-to-follow segments, the photos outstanding. The writing truly flows and motivates one to get moving. Whether you exercise regularly or are just making the commitment to do so, this is definitely the primer to use.
