I bought this book after having read the original "biggest loser" book. and i STRONGLY recommend buying them together. especially if you are just starting out. this book is as it says a "fitness book." it does not provide all the inspiring stories of the people on the show, and all the helpful information to start you out like the other one does. This book does provide you with several new exercises to add to your circuit to provide you with variety so you don't get bored. I have lost 51 pounds since september following their exercise program (not even following it exactly, but closely) and following the nutritional guidelines and suggestions they give. i feel great, and i have been able to try several new activities and been surprised by my ability to do them. These two books are the best purchases i have made for myself in years. Bob is such an inspirational trainer. and i can't wait to see what the next 12 weeks brings :o)

As a certified personal trainer (NASM, ACSM and AFFA), with over 2000 hours of training, I thought I'd provide an industry professional's assessment. Since I'm not a registered dietician, I will leave the comments on the nuitrition part of the progam to those more qualified than myself.

The exercise program is based on a Circuit Training format. Circuit training excels at burning calories and increasing muscle endurance. It is NOT the best program for building muscle mass. Also, be aware that according the General Law of Adaptation, the human body will adapt to the program in 6-to-8 weeks and start burning less calories. In other words, when a reader has plateaued, the reader will need to change his or her exercise program.

Also, in order to build muscle mass a person needs to ingest more calories than that person is burning off. Muscle cannot be built on negative calories!

With those observations aside, the book does an excellent job of explaining and illustrating thier fitness program. I especially liked photos of the exercises in the program section of the book. When I'm working with a new client, especially one with little or no experience in weight training, I spend a lot of time coaching and explaining exercises.

This book is great. It was much more detailed than the others. I felt like I was reading exactly how the contestants on "The Biggest Loser" was losing all that weight. The book was detailed enough that as a Gym Manager, I am going to have a biggest loser contest of our own following this book to the letter! If you are looking for a complete program, or are someone whose fitness program has stalled, this book is for you! I look forward to posting our gym results in the near future to motivate even more of you!

Found this greatly informative and accurate. I go to a personal trainer once a week and all the moves I have learned so far are in this book. There is no reason why you can't get fit at home. I go to the trainer for motivation and how to do moves correctly but this book sustains me during the week. It is a great price and worth the money.

This book gives effective training workouts for various levels of ability, plus tips from contestants on the show. I think it serves its intended purpose well. The only negative I have to say about it is the way the women are dressed in the book. If you are looking for a workout then you probably don't look like those women and don't need to see them in such immodest attire to help your self esteem. The women should dress normally as do the men in the book!

I was looking for a book that would help me warm up and do exercises that I could do. I found that the workout here was just what I needed. I have gone to the exericses classes, gyms, read and was tired of all the garbage. This starts you slow and the warmup is just right. That I found out at a meeting where they did the same things, they usually charge about $150 to do this special range of motion stuff. Do what you can and since I have metal knee's and getting up in age this is something I can read and do part of the movements. Can not get on the floor but the bed is fine. There may be other books out there but this ones has just about all that you need.

This book gives several levels so it is a good value and will last you for a long time. I liked it so much that I bought 2 more copies, took them apart, and made posters I could hang up to look at while exercising so I don't have to deal with stopping to look at the book.
