Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. I read it in one day. There was so many good things that I got out of the book. The main thing was how the author blended East and West philosophies of mindfulness, and how he brought them together to discuss the factors that work in fitness. At first I thought this book was going to be all theory: basic mindfulness,, and what to do mentally. However I was pleasantly surprised to see how much practical action steps were discussed in the book. You know, a lot of times when I do read a book on psychology or mindfulness, it's all about the theoretical things, how the mind works, so on and so forth. This was really good because the author provided:

1. Good stories.
2. Practical exercises to do.
3. Scientific proof.

I was amazed at how much quality content was packed into this 130-page book. The author went right into the meat. There was no fluff. There was no filler pages. And that is the main thing I loved about this book, sometimes you'll read through a 300 page book only to realize that it could be condensed into something much smaller with much more concentrated information. I have to really say, I loved this book, and I learned so much from it. I think a lot of people will benefit from this book: Not just fitness professionals, but the general public.

p.s- I've been slacking on my mindfulness program and my daily breathing exercises, reading this certainly re-sparked my motivation.

Wonderful read! I truly have been captivated by this book. Mind Your Own Fitness is an easy read, full of knowledge and inspiration. Greg Justice has motivated me to embrace the Eastern practices. The ability to understand how my body works and what I can do help lessen the affects of anxiety and stress is priceless. With this book as my guide I can expand on my journey. Looking forward to his next amazing ride!

When I first learned about Mindfulness, I pondered how I could integrate it into my daily life -- I was compelled to learn more. There was a light-bulb moment when I realized that my workouts would be more effective if I put my mind to it instead of thinking about daily schedules and must-dos. This book is teaching me how to mindfully progress through my workout routines and to challenge my fitness level. In an easy to follow and logical manner I'm learning how important the mind can be to move me toward my goals. Workouts are more than running the treadmill mindlessly or robotically lifting weights. I highly recommend this book as an important component for daily living...I've just begun my Mindfulness journey.

Format: Paperback
This well-written concise book...easy to scan or to read in depth in a short time...is especially helpful for the beginner in the "mind over matter" movement. As a person with no knowledge at all of Eastern practices, I found this very usable for my life on-the-go.

For the person already familiar with Eastern practices, this book provides a quick check list, and more succinct descriptions.

The "Takeaway" sections are particularly helpful regardless of an individual's fitness level. In our fast paced world, there's not a lot of time for in-depth study...but there is a great need for serenity and ways to bring down the anxiety level.

Very fine book...recommended for all levels of fitness.
