Get in Shape, Stay in Shape: Develop Your Own Personal Fitness Program Without Spending ........

F. Skip Latella, Author, Consumer Reports, Author, Winifred Conkling, With Consumers Union U.S. $14.95 (117p) ISBN 978-0-89043-243-3
True to form, this book carrying the imprimatur of Consumer Reports is straightforward and gimmick-free, designed to help one stay in shape without expensive investments or unrealistic expectations. The guide is also comprehensive, offering detailed instructions on every phase and variety of exercising--from aerobics to pylometrics--as well as tips for older adults and for those who suffer from sports-related injuries. Also included is an invaluable section on how to choose home equipment, running shoes and a health club. Some readers may miss the messianic delivery or slap-on-the-back pep talks found in other exercise books, but for those who find their inspiration in a no-nonsense approach, this could be just what it takes to turn a couch potato into a model of cardiovascular health.
