I am now a little more than halfway through it and it is working well.

It helped me build good, healthy habits, and I do not feel like the exercise program is consuming my life, which is a good thing, as I am always very busy.
David Victor Gehrke
I would recommend this book for those of you who want to start a walking program for fitness or just for fun.

Format: Paperback
This book is designed for the absolute beginner. It assumes you do no exercise, and gives you a daily goal/program every day for 90 days, gradually increasing both time and distance.
As I am not a beginner, this book offered me very little.

With a blown out knee and ankle, getting back into exercise has been frustrating. This book starts slow and easy and is very encouraging to get back into the swing of things. It starts VERY slow and easy (just 10 minutes a day for the first couple of weeks) so exercise veterans may not like it at all. Fabulous for the out of shape (out of shape for whatever reason). Get it. Go walk.

This is an excellent way to get yourself up off that couch and outside, exercising. It is geared for people who are doing no exercising whatsoever. It certainly inspired me to get started walking for fitness.

Format: Paperback
Fundamentally a motivational book with the structure of a calendar. Designed to push and encourage for that 90 day period it takes to form a new better habit. Like walking. Like exercise.
Each day introduces a new idea, 2 pages per day of nice, simple, straightforward information. Not a hard read at all, but after it is over you learned something, but better yet may now find walking a habit.
Good beginner book.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book for those who want to start and stick with any type of walking program. It's also good for those who are sedetary and/or obese. I am not a beginner when it come to exercise, but walking was a little boring to me so I purchased this book as a motivational tool and now I absolutely enjoy walking. I would recommend this book for those of you who want to start a walking program for fitness or just for fun.

Format: Paperback
The book by Mark Fenton and Seth Bauer was the first one to show me that I didn't have to be an athlete to start walking. Their approach is incredibly convincing: all you need is your own body and 10 daily minutes to walk yourself to successful fitness. I have been doing just that for almost a month now, and I feel much better already.

Format: Paperback
This book outlines a very readable, very achievable program that is easy to follow, and yet feels challenging enough to feel effective. It begins assuming you have never tried an exercise program before, and that approach is helpful and always boosts self-esteem.

Personally, I found this book perfect for me. I am nineteen and at college. I had mononucleosis for over a month. While I was recovering, I found that all my muscles had become very weak. I needed something to strengthen me again, and I browsed many exercise books before choosing this one. It helped me build good, healthy habits, and I do not feel like the exercise program is consuming my life, which is a good thing, as I am always very busy. I completed the ninety days mentioned in the title, and already I feel much stronger and healthier than I did when I began. I have lost weight and I feel like dancing a lot more than I used to. I wholeheartedly recommend this book.
