Everyone has heard of Myers-Briggs, and everyone knows that staying fit greatly increases health and thus the quality of life.
Still, though, everyone knows that fitness can be boring, making it awfully unpleasant -- hence, hard to do.
Okay, but this book helps solve that problem. You gauge your personality type and then choose the type of fitness which will be most interesting for you. And that makes it more likely that you'll do it.
So read this book and live a happier and healthier life -- thanks to this new author.
It was lacking one element that I expected: a plan. Ok, these are my preferences. Now what? I did appreciate the learning experience and information gained, but as an "at-homer" I did not gain anything about how to put it to use.
I think this is probably a great book for personal trainers who are looking for insight into their clients, but found it unhelpful as an at-home motivator. However, for most will probably be a self-fulfilling prophecy in it's level of motivation: what you are looking for, you will likely get out of it.
Having been a teacher and/or a student for all my life, I have known that there are certainly different strokes for different folks. However, the way this author uses this concept to explain a fitness program is helpful to me. There is the next step...as I continue-in the author's words-to search for ways to make physical activity a more natural part of my life.
Thank you for an informative, useful, and fun read!
My clients loved the test, and loved that the approach was personalised.
The book gives incredibly practical recommendations to trainers about how to work with each personality type. It takes the guesswork out of determining approach. It points you where to start, in terms of training a person.
It also gave me amazing insight into my own training preferences. I have never quit training in 13 years since I started. And I credit The 8 colours of fitness with providing the tools to cater my style of staying fit to my personality. The system works! It's incredible. And years of coaching successful clients are a testament to how well it works.
I recommend the book to every trainer and every fitness enthusiast out there who would like to see exactly how much knowing your temperament can help you maximize your physical potential and help you enjoy being fit for life.
Thank you, Suzanne, your work is so much appreciated.
