I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised when I picked up a copy of Terrell Owens's Finding Fitness. I presumed that it was yet another celebrity/athlete cashing in on fame while delivering little in the way of any useful information. Thankfully, I was wrong.
Finding Fitness presents a holistic approach towards fitness--and, no, not in a funky "New Age" sort of way. Rather, Owens believes that the key to lasting fitness and ultimate satisfaction begins with the mind and not the body. He states what is missing from so many books merely detailing routines: exercise and good eating must be rewarding for you or you simply will not do it.
To that end, he has included different motivational tools for the reader to utilize (though motivation must ultimately come from the user, of course).
Owens goes over nutrition and debunks some widely held preconceptions believed by novices and log-time fitness enthusiasts alike. (For example, you CAN eat within three hours of bedtime and still not explode like a cow.) More intriguingly, he provides a glimpse at his eating habits, day-by-day, meal-by-meal to show you how a finely tuned professional athlete doesn't starve himself but does not gorge either. Moreover, a template is provided for the common man or woman looking for guidance. I say template because Owens is a firm believer in adapting regimens to one's body so there is a sort of freedom there.
With all that said, the exercise regimens are the true highlight of the book. Variety is not a problem at all. There are a myriad of programs to follow, from beginner to advanced, with several different exercises for each fitness level using free weights, body weight, or strength bands or cables.

Great Book! It breaks down everything regarding his workout, eating, and includes what he does to mentally get through those times you don't want to work out. Only down side is that you must got buy his bands to keep up with what he says.

Format: Hardcover
Terrell Owens' 'Finding Fitness' is a decent fitness, health and exercise book. It's very simple and straight forward and focuses on moves that Owens recommends to build muscle and tone your body as well as his personal eating plan that will help you stay fit and lean. That being said, I felt there was room for improvement. Most of the exercises in the book are all dealing with body weight moves and resistance bands. I've read and have used resistance bands in my own fitness regimen but I know there's more out there and the fact that most of this book involves using nothing but resistance bands makes it feel a bit limited in scope. For a book about fitness, I was really looking forward to a variety of moves using a variety of equipment. Yet, this felt like a big ploy and push for resistance band training and a way for him to push his own brand of resistance bands.

For the nutrition part, it was also very simple and straight forward. Similar to the resistance band, it struck me that when he came to the point of discussing supplements, he yet again started to push for you to purchase his own brand of multivitamins/supplements. To me, this took away from the book just a bit because it made the entire book feel like a promotional vessel for his products rather than really being expansive and keeping the focus on giving people as much advice as possible on how they can improve their health.

It's an easy read but I felt the abundance of information on resistance band training and how simplified the diet/eating plan is. To me, this felt like a infomercial or quick overview of the day and life of Terrell Owens. It could have used a bit more variety in terms of exercises and equipments and the diet part could have been a bit more involved or elaborated on more so. It's ok overall, an average book that I wouldn't necessarily recommend someone spending their money on.

I'll keep this review short:
This is not a fitness book, so much as a "buy T.O.'s bands", "buy T.O.'s supplements" and "T.O. is a big celebrity" book. Now, I don't even mind a book like this, as long as the fitness and eating advice is sound. This book doesn't even have that. You'll find better exercises if you just look up on the internet. Worst of all, the eating/diet advice is simply horrible (I'm referring to "teens should have popcorn for mid-afternoon snack" type statements). The book is full of completely trashy and unscientific eating advice.

Please do yourself a favor and skip this book. If you do like celebrity workout books, try LL Cool J's book.
