I bought this book after having read the original "biggest loser" book. and i STRONGLY recommend buying them together. especially if you are just starting out. this book is as it says a "fitness book." it does not provide all the inspiring stories of the people on the show, and all the helpful information to start you out like the other one does. This book does provide you with several new exercises to add to your circuit to provide you with variety so you don't get bored. I have lost 51 pounds since september following their exercise program (not even following it exactly, but closely) and following the nutritional guidelines and suggestions they give. i feel great, and i have been able to try several new activities and been surprised by my ability to do them. These two books are the best purchases i have made for myself in years. Bob is such an inspirational trainer. and i can't wait to see what the next 12 weeks brings :o)

Format: Paperback
As a certified personal trainer (NASM, ACSM and AFFA), with over 2000 hours of training, I thought I'd provide an industry professional's assessment. Since I'm not a registered dietician, I will leave the comments on the nuitrition part of the progam to those more qualified than myself.

The exercise program is based on a Circuit Training format. Circuit training excels at burning calories and increasing muscle endurance. It is NOT the best program for building muscle mass. Also, be aware that according the General Law of Adaptation, the human body will adapt to the program in 6-to-8 weeks and start burning less calories. In other words, when a reader has plateaued, the reader will need to change his or her exercise program.

Also, in order to build muscle mass a person needs to ingest more calories than that person is burning off. Muscle cannot be built on negative calories!

With those observations aside, the book does an excellent job of explaining and illustrating thier fitness program. I especially liked photos of the exercises in the program section of the book. When I'm working with a new client, especially one with little or no experience in weight training, I spend a lot of time coaching and explaining exercises.

This book is great. It was much more detailed than the others. I felt like I was reading exactly how the contestants on "The Biggest Loser" was losing all that weight. The book was detailed enough that as a Gym Manager, I am going to have a biggest loser contest of our own following this book to the letter! If you are looking for a complete program, or are someone whose fitness program has stalled, this book is for you! I look forward to posting our gym results in the near future to motivate even more of you!

Found this greatly informative and accurate. I go to a personal trainer once a week and all the moves I have learned so far are in this book. There is no reason why you can't get fit at home. I go to the trainer for motivation and how to do moves correctly but this book sustains me during the week. It is a great price and worth the money.

Format: Paperback
I tried to like this book, but it truly is for fans of the show. If you cut out all the references to participants from the show, it's about 1/2 as long! (And since I wasn't a follower of the show, the names have no meaning for me. Diet and fitness books always have an overabundance of "success" stories anyway. That's great, but that person's work schedule, lifestyle, food preferences, health history and body type aren't mine, so I can't relate.)

But what bothered me was the misnomer "time-saving," because it definitely isn't, and for any workout to succeed for me, it has to be one I have time to do. People on the show worked out for hours each day. (And why do personal trainers think finding a couple of hours to work out every day as no big problem for those of us in the real world?) Nowhere in the book does it ever say how long you can expect these workouts to take. By my estimate, 45 minutes to 90 minutes, at least 3 times a week - more days a week if you add a separate cardio as suggested). In fact, as you get more fit the workouts take even longer. This is neither time-saving nor time-efficient. If this is the block of time I have available to work out, that time isn't going to increase just because I'm fitter, and this book doesn't account for that at all.

One other note: although the book lists the equipment you need, they left out a step or bench. You'll definitely need that, too, for one of the exercises.

All in all, this is book for fans of the show who have very flexible schedules. For everyone else, I'd suggest looking elsewhere.

This books is for anyone who is considering losing weight. It gives you help with the food part of the diet and it gives you a fitness program. I am so glad I purchased this book. I have already loss 10 pounds, just by altering my diet and exercising. This book is very helpful. I highly recommend this book.

This book gives effective training workouts for various levels of ability, plus tips from contestants on the show. I think it serves its intended purpose well. The only negative I have to say about it is the way the women are dressed in the book. If you are looking for a workout then you probably don't look like those women and don't need to see them in such immodest attire to help your self esteem. The women should dress normally as do the men in the book!
