A better book is by A. Flach-Boot Fitness.
Still these books are better for us who don't want the bulging muscles of bodybuilders or the anoxeric look of strictly aerobic fanatics.
A sensible approach for those new or re-new to fitness
Other books you might find rewarding...
For the person new to running/jogging, 2 books by John "the penguin" Bingham, 'No Need For Speed' and 'The Courage to Start' are both excellent.
For a more thorough book on nutrition I recommend Andrew Weil, MD's 'Eating Well for Optimum Health'.
And for more stretching tips it's hard to beat 'Stretching' by Bob Anderson

This book was wonderful for presenting boot camp in a way that doesn't really put you down (except jokingly) for modifying exercises. Read morePublished on March 8, 2001
