Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
For someone who has made her reputation as Hollywood's premiere fitness trainer (her clients include Elle MacPherson, Tina Turner and James Taylor), Voight has produced a remarkably straightforward and no-nonsense fitness book that deserves to become a standard in the field. It's a standout by virtue of its clarity and conceptual coherence, and by the fact that it's written without jargon or psycho-babble. The book is divided roughly into three sections: introductory material about weight loss, discipline and commitment; workouts for arms, legs, buttocks, abdominals, back and stretching exercises; and advice about safety in movement and eating habits (including a weeklong diet plan). Workouts are clearly and effectively illustrated with photos of Voight in action. And while the title may suggest some New Age tendencies, Voight's exercises borrow from traditional weight and fitness methods (such as her highly effective abdominal exercises) and basic Yoga techniques (the back and stretching exercises are standard Yoga movements and postures). Without hype or condescension, Voight packs a powerful program onto these few pages. Author tour. (May)

You will not waste one minute if you follow her instructions. She is known for inspiring millions of women with her best-selling workout videos. Karen believes that people don't follow through with their fitness program because it doesn't fit into their lifestyle. 'Understanding that exercise needs to be a priority in your life is essential to staying on a program.' --Karen Voight As a Karen Voight fan, I have collected her videos and have found them to be the best on the market. Her book is also the best fitness book for women I have found so far. Each picture in this book is Karen! She actually posed for each shot. In this way, she can literally show you how to do each exercise. This book has many pages of pure text, and Karen is an excellent writer. She gives four steps to get your fitness program on track and then dives into a chapter on how to find real satisfaction from exercise. In the next chapter, she focuses on weight loss and lifestyle. After discussing the five guidelines you must follow to achieve low body fat and defined muscles, Karen gives attention to each muscle group by providing a series of sequential photographs to explain the exercises. (pg. 32-87). These pages contain exercises for the arms, legs, buttocks, abdominals and back. You will recognize these exercises from the videos, but this book is nice to take with you when you are traveling. The last chapter of this book contains 20 most-asked questions. You can discover everything from beginning to exercise to how often you should exercise. This book is designed to inspire women of all fitness levels. One look at Karen's sleek physique and you will be running to your workout room! Karen has truly found total fitness. The kind which heals the body, mind and spirit. Her Yoga videos are also quite relaxing, yet challenging. During you workout sessions, you might start to see roadblocks and this might keep you from working out. Karen explains the possible causes for these roadblocks and gives the solutions so you keep motivated and Karen can keep her credentials as a Top Instructor. She really excels at motivation and you can also trust her to give you the best information on fitness. She is unquestionably the leader in the fitness world. The fitness-savvy stars of Hollywood are quite fortunate to have her to instruct them. Now you can also have her as your very own in-home instructor. Just put in a video or take out this book and Karen's motivational message will walk into your life.
