Working out at home is a growing trend. These numbers are increasing as the worldwide economic downturn causes people to cancel their costly gym memberships. The Women's Fitness Book is your own gym membership for life. This huge compendium of exercises and workout options includes everything you will ever need to get fit and stay motivated, whether you're a beginner or a fitness fanatic. Like having your very own personal trainer, the book begins with questionnaires and tests to establish your fitness level, exercise preferences and goals. The book also features advice and tips on motivation, setting goals and nutrition, giving you all the tools you need to sculpt the body you want in just six weeks, and maintain your new body for life. Variety is key to staying motivated and this is at the heart of the book. The encyclopedic exercises section introduces a large range of cardiovascular and resistance exercises, such as running, dancing, yoga, boot camp, kickboxing and strength training using weights, dyna bands and kettle bells. The exercises are clear and easy to follow with step-by-step photography, annotated photographs of common faults and anatomical artworks that highlight the way the exercise acts on the body. "The Workouts" section contains 25 tailored workouts with exercises from across the different exercise disciplines to target specific areas, so one workout, for example, could include strength training, Pilates, running, and kickboxing moves. Whether you want to fit into your skinny jeans, tone your arms, or look good in your bikini in just six weeks, or you need a program you can do in your lunch break, in just 10 minutes or while you're on a work trip, there's a workout for all your goals, moods and circumstances. If you want even more variety, the book shows you how to pick and choose from the different exercise disciplines to design your own unique personalized workout.
