Overview

Fitness supermodel and personal trainer Minna Lessig presents a 4-week sculpting program to help women tone their trouble spots—with results in as little as 10 days!

An emerging superstar in the fitness field—with credits that include a weekly spot on CBS's The Early Show, three best-selling fitness DVDs, and more, Minna Lessig has a personal training client list that ranges from busy moms like her to world-class athletes like Yankee baseball star Alex Rodriguez, who attributed a record-breaking season while he was with the Seattle Mariners to Lessig's off-season strength and conditioning program.

In her first book, Tank Top Arms, Bikini Belly, Boy Shorts Bottom, Minna Lessig assembles the most effective time-saving exercises designed to target the arms, abs, and buttocks. This is cutting-edge fitness—a 4-week program that will not only make women look better but also feel healthier, stronger, and more energetic as they go about their everyday activities. Each workout includes mind-body exercises: instead of resting between sets, readers engage in positive visualization exercises created to enhance their well-being and self-esteem. And with Minna's jump-start program, women can get results in as little as 10 days, motivating them to achieve a beautifully toned body that will look great in tank tops, bikinis with boy short bottoms, and other figure-revealing warm-weather fashions.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
There are a plethora of books aimed at women who have tried various workout regimes and abandoned them, but Lessig's stands out for its focus on "functional-training" (her exercises are designed to "mimic the movements of everyday life") and for its gradual approach: the book offers plenty that may be unfamiliar to the already-active, but really shines in taking one from total inactivity to an effective routine in manageable, injuryless increments. Lessig, who has produced three popular fitness videos, appears in more than 100 b&w photos illustrating the components of her mix-and-match regime, which combines fitness balance (cardio, flexibility and strength training are all covered) and accessibility (no gym membership required, and workouts can be done piecemeal rather than in big, blocked-out chunks of time). The book's focus on sculpting has the effect of making the workouts seem less monumental (and thus less impossible to maintain), and every other page features an affirmative aphorism offset in a "Minna Says" speech bubble ("All success inspires a little bit of fear. Let your fears inspire you to rise to the challenge"). Lessig's is a friendly, doable regime. (Apr.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
