"This book will be called the ‘bible’ of movement and nutrition." --Eric Serrano, M.D.

About the Author

As a Holistic Health Practitioner, Neuromuscular Therapist and corrective exercise specialist, Paul Chek has developed a unique approach to wellness and education that ties in concepts from each of these fields. By treating the body as a whole system and finding the main cause of a problem, Paul has been successful where traditional methods have consistently failed.

He founded the C.H.E.K Institute in California as a focal point for the education of elite health and exercise professionals. The C.H.E.K Institute runs four advanced certification programs and provides numerous training videos and courses to students worldwide. An internationally acclaimed presenter and consultant, Paul’s clients have included: the Los Angeles Chiropractic College, Johnson & Johnson, the conditioning staff of the Chicago Bulls, Australia’s Canberra Raiders, the US Air Force Academy, professional and amateur athletes from a variety of sports, as well as numerous rehabilitation clients. Paul is a contributing writer to many industry publications and websites and has authored several books, including The Golf Biomechanic’s Manual and Movement That Matters.

Well illustrated, detailed without being overly technical. Explanations are generally nice & clear. Goes into lots of detail on the basics of eating, digestion, and exercise. Contains little tests to check out various elements of your state of being such as metabolic type, flexibility, conditioning level, etcetera, then prescribes various program elements to fit your needs. Large colorful layout makes it seem less intimidating, less textbook-like.

I'm sure some will dislike it because it doesn't dig deeply enough into some topics. I like that he doesn't use ten pages to hammer a point when one will do. The result is that the text moves along, and you'll spend your time learning useful principles. Though it does have the most detailed and interesting chapter on, well, pooping (his word!), that I've ever seen. If you are squeamish about this subject, you won't be after you finish the chapter, complete with illustrative poop cartoons.

Chek is seen shirtless, looking quite buff in a number of photos. There are two issues I have with this: One is that, as other reviewers have noted, he did not get to looking like that via just the exercises in this book, putting in a couple of hours a week at the gym. The other is that he is at 8% body fat in the pics, and I seriously question the wisdom of advocating that as a healthy goal. 8% looks really cool, but some people feel that actually ends up being hard on the body (and the brain inside). I'd like to hear him speak to this.

The other very minor thing I dislike about it is the conspicuous presence of the CHEK Institute throughout the book.

This is a great book about diet, exercise and general health. If you want to make changes to your life but aren't sure where to start out, this is definitely the book for you. If you want a solid explanation why you should change, followed up with research, this book is for you. Mr. Chek has taken information about diet, exercise, and mental and physical health from many different sources, including his own personal experiences, and compiled it into this book. The book is easy to read and is also an excellent starting point for anyone interested in improving his or her quality of life.

The book covers such a wide variety of topics and everyone will be able to learn something from this book. But in covering so many topics, there is a lack of depth in some areas. Fortunately Mr. Chek sites many references throughout the book, allowing you to dig deeper if they choose.

Paul is a big advocate of getting back to the basics. He uses examples of primal man and activities primal man engaged in through out his book. If primal man survived moving and eating a certain way, we should adopt those patterns to our own life. I personally agree with this way of thinking, I'm sure some others will not.

The sections on training programs are excellent; my only gripe is the advanced program. Mr. Chek definitely practices what he preaches, but I doubt he got to where he is doing the advanced program presented in this book. I remember seeing pictures of Paul doing a one-arm push up on a Bosu and another of him doing a sit up on a Swiss ball with a 100+ pound dumbbell across his chest. Those sorts of very high level exercises are absent.

I'm nit picking with this, so Ill digress.

I personally enjoyed the book and have recommended it to many of my friends.

Let me first say that much of the information is definitely contained elsewhere, and much of it I felt I already "knew". The author though presents the information in a logically consistent holistic view of one's health; and thereby chances the paradigm by which we view our bodies.

It has inspired me to change my food intake and my lifestyle - and that highlights the true value of the book. It doesn't just contain information, but presents it in a manner in which I could process and internalize it.

I heartily recommend this book.

This book is an absolute must to have for everyone serious about making a complete lifestyle change towards better health. The information and references provided about nutrition, metabolic typing diets, circadian rhythms and hormonal responses, parasitic stress on digestion, and parasympathetic-sympathetic balancing of the autonoimic nervous system is outstanding. The only thing that held me back from giving this book five stars is the exercise selection. I understand for the beginner less is better, but I feel advanced level people will not use the recommended performance training routines exclusively due to the over emphasis of light resistance, single leg support based movements, and minimal exercise variety.

Overall this book is very interesting and educational. It is very detailed and explains how to achieve great overall health such as eating the right foods, exercise, lower your stress, etc.

However, it is overwhelming to me as there are many exercises for different purposes. I have to concentrate to sort out which ones to perform to individualize it. I am more of a class or DVD type of exerciser so that may explain why I feel overwhelmed by it. His DVD "Better Abs, Buns, and Back" is very good and uses a Swiss Ball. You can find it on the CHEK Institute website.

This book, as well as many others I have read, lack in practical recipes for busy families. I wish there would have been some easy, healthy recipes, or at least some resources referenced as far are websites or cookbooks. ( I find the healthy foods as necessary but eating boiled chicken breasts and salads get old fast. Also where we live we do not have access to all the items listed especially fresh organic produce.)
I believe the book kind of leaves you hanging as far as how to take the recommended foods for your metabolic type and turn them into meals for the family.

I don't typically purchase many books but this one is worth buying if you can't find it at your local library. It may just take a little time to sort out what fits for you and what your goals are. You can even take it a step further and see a CHEK practitioner in your area to help meet your health and fitness goals.

I also recommend books by Dr. Joseph Mercola, but check out your local library first.
