I am a huge Turbo Kick fan and love Chalene's energy and spunky sassy style, so I really wanted to like this book. There are some good tips for basic goal setting and dreaming big - gotta appreciate her enthusiasm and zest for life - but a few things just really didn't sit right with me. For one, her comment to really try to stay married if you really love your kids irked me - she further adds that kids of divorce are more likely to be obese (this is obviously complicated issue and there is conflicting data on the subject). It is wonderful that Chalene has a strong marriage, but this jab at those that are in a different situation felt lame and preachy.

Additionally, her recipes were so disappointing. How can anyone call a recipe made with Shakeology, Pudding Mix, and Crystal Light "healthy" - yuck. The other "cleaner" recipes were ridiculous - I don't need to know how to toast a piece of bread or how to bake a sweet potato and sprinkle nutmeg on it (that one she calls "Sweet Potato Pie"). The exercises were all pretty basic too. This might be a good book for someone just beginning to work out and/or find themselves, but it was definitely not for me. I'm still a fan of her work and her energy, she is no doubt a rockin' chick, just not at all a fan of this book.

...Chalene loves her some Chalene, too! I am a huge fan of her ChaLEAN Extreme and Turbo Fire workouts so when she sent the word about releasing her PUSH via twitter, of course I was on board! She is extremely motivational in her workouts; it's what separates her from the rest (for me, anyway)!

But this book leaves much to be desired. By the time you get to day two, you can already tell this is about Chalene, and the rest of us are just along for the ride. There are a gazillion pictures of her doing mundane tasks like hopping in her expensive car or putting on her expensive shoes or lounging on her couch listening to music through her headphones (yeah, they're probably expensive, too). By the way, I'm not hating, just don't see the relevance or why these shots were included.

As for the tone of the book? Well, it reads like she's begging you to get your life together. Well, with all due respect, me wanting to get my life together was implied...I mean, I did buy the book, didn't I? So no further coersion is needed. After a while (read: by day 2) it becomes a bit condescending.

Chalene, I love your workouts but as for motivating me to get the life I deserve, well, I'm going to leave that to the good Lord and my own common sense.

If there were not so many pictures of her in the book, it would be half the size. It is written and presented in a very "look at me" style. In my opinion most of what is here is regurgitated material from every other goal setting self help and weight loss\exercise book. If you are a fan of Chalene, then this might be the book for you. If someone asking "Can I get a woot woot!" makes you cringe, then maybe not so much. Most if not all the material in here that would certainly work if you can apply it. I liked the material but not so much the style in which it was presented.

Format: Hardcover
*disclosure notice* I received a 30 day advanced copy of the book in November. I have previously gone through a Jump Start program with Chalene. In essence, this is my second time through the 30 day challenge*

Now, with that out of the way. Push! 30 days to Turbocharged Habits, a Bangin' Body, and the Life You Deserve! is more than a mouthful to say, it's also a bit of a bumpy ride and darned intimidating.

What the book is (when used properly):
* An opportunity for soul searching
* A deep introspection of your life, your choices and your priorities
* A challenge to make concrete changes to align your life with your priorities (not someone else's)
* A way to demystify and debunk some of the myths around weight loss

What the book is not:
* A quick fix
* Easy answers
* Predetermined "Step by Step do this then that* diet/fitness book (more on this later)
* Revolutionary (more on this as well)

As I said, this is my second time through Chalene's 30 day program. At the beginning of 2011 there was one flavor of it, the book is a second. The first time through I faithfully applied the principles, followed directions, and met my PUSH goal in 90 days! When you're thinking about making a radical change in your life 9in my case, a change in career) seeing such a dramatic shift in such a short time is downright intimidating. The second time (starting 11/11/11) I did not follow through. I let life be a distraction, I allowed stress to pile up and as a result not only am I no closer to my goal, I'm probably 2 steps behind where I started. Is this all because of the book? No. It's because I didn't do anything.

I said the book isn't revolutionary and it's not.

I read the book PUSH a while back and just haven't had a chance to write a review.
I do like her open dialogue throughout the book and felt very "girl next door". I do like the part about writing a priority statement with which to identify your goals and how you set boundaries with other people , this helped me quite a bit during my brief stint as a fitness instructor. I think she identifies some great tools for brainstorming, not holding back and identifying goals and how to reverse engineer one's goals. I liked the exercises and a few of the recipes in the back. Some of them were so basic I was a bit shocked they were considered as a part of the book.

I did not like the many many large pictures of Chalene simply performing tasks that really did not seem to serve any purpose to her message. Honestly I felt like I Had to read the book because I thought I wanted to go on this career path with her company and even though she kept saying it wasn't a "diet" book, for the most part it most definitely was a diet book. Yes, there was some goal setting, but it was mostly about fitness and dieting. Personally, felt the book slowly began to unravel and I began to loss interest. It seemed very hurried with lots of "picture filler" and common sense information (after the reverse engineering).

I do think that the overall theme of the book was good and her heart was in the right place about helping people.

Honestly, I like -Turbo Jam, Turbo Fire Turbo Kick part Chalene's personality the best. I guess what I find confusing is in the book referred to Brian Tracy telling her to not "go all Hollywood" and as of right now, she has "gone all Hollywood.
