A lifetime of fitness in just minutes a day.
I don’t have time . . . I’m too tired . . . I hate gyms . . . These are among the most common excuses for not exercising. But the truth is that getting in shape requires less time and effort than you might think.
Examining everything from pre-workout stretches to post-workout protein shakes, this science-backed book slices through fitness fads and misconceptions to reveal how you can exercise quickly and effectively. For example, is it best to exercise in the morning? Does aerobic activity burn more fat than weight lifting? You’ll also learn how to get and stay motivated, what equipment to buy (and what not to waste money on), which dietary supplements really help, and how to combat muscle soreness. Fitter Faster explains how to:
Find the right balance between cardio, strength, and stretching • Slash workout times with high-intensity interval training • Prevent boredom • Enhance fat-burning
The accompanying Fitter Faster Plan, developed with celebrity trainer Brad Kolowich, Jr., pulls everything together. Requiring as little as 15 minutes a day, these quick workouts maximize efficiency—allowing you to reap the greatest benefit in the shortest possible time…all without ever having to set foot in a gym.
With photographs illustrating each exercise routine, this eye-opening book will forever change the way you work out— and help you get fitter faster.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The book breaks down into four sections, with the first three about preparation and knowledge while the chunky last third has the exercises. The first part is motivation, the second is why the exercises are aerobic, then strength training. Although the categories are broad, every aspect of exercise is thoroughly discussed - from how to deal with short term soreness to actual pain from injury, which supplements are worth the time and which aren't, drifit synthetic clothing versus cotton, HIIT and why it is important, etc. Even more homeopathic or unresearched/unproven techniques (Phelps' cupping, for example) are covered.
There were many aspects of exercise I hadn't considered to so I found this book useful as both an information source/manual as well as an exercise guide. No gym equipment other than dumbells is needed and you won't need a lot of space either (he even uses a couch in several exercises). So this is ideal whether in a small or large home, whether you have access to a gym or not, and whether you want to exercise indoors or outdoors. He takes away a lot of the reasons not to exercise.
Davis has done an excellent job here and I think anyone interested in getting off their sedentary life will benefit from this book and its exercises. Everything you need to know (except actual meal plans for healthier lifestyle) is included. Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.
