British author and health enthusiast James Atkinson is a highly regarded bodybuilder and trainer and author of fitness guides and his is only in his early thirties – and VERY fit. Of all the many aspects of Jim’s books and programs and on and off line guides that make them special, it is his absolutely no nonsense approach that takes first place. He is a realistic, thoughtful, caring, but direct coach and he foregoes any ballyhoo about promises that can't be kept. He takes the time to offer sound advice to prepare his followers, discusses all types of training from the dietary aspect to resistance training, cardio training, tucks in some supportive information of DMOS (for those of us who are beginners with Jim, that stands for Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) and how to differentiate that from muscle injury, and Motivation - that all important ingredient in successful training.
Jim summarizes the basics of his book: ‘Over the last twenty years and more, I have been skinny and weak, a long-distance runner, fat and unfit, and then a competing bodybuilder. I am a qualified fitness coach and personal trainer and have been through the mill when it comes to personal fitness. I now have a balanced healthy lifestyle, which is the direct result of my journey. But, why should it take you more than twenty years to hit your fitness goals and learn how to live a healthy lifestyle? This is where I can help you. In this book, I will outline the fundamental building blocks that are essential for fitness success, and I will show you exactly how to implement them. I will demonstrate the exact steps that I would take in order to compete in a triathlon, run a marathon, or compete in a bodybuilding competition if I had been sitting around watching television, playing computer games, and eating pizza for the last twenty years – and all of this will only take around twenty-five steps.’
The steps Jim wisely organizes are presented in his chapter headings: HEALTH CHECK, WHERE ARE THE FITNESS TIPS?, MENTAL HEALTH AND FITNESS ,YES! TOO MANY POTATOES CAN RUIN YOUR DAY, THE TOP 5 BIG MISTAKES, PYRAMIDS OF CHANGE, A DIFFERENT PATH, MY 25 FITNESS TIPS, BE AMAZED AT YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS, and ARE YOU READY TO COMMIT? And these sections are thoroughly explained and are directed at carrying us through a year of progress to health and fitness
Jim thinks of everything. This is the kind of program that is finally accessible to all those who care about health and fitness. Following this program is a pleasure and becomes solid supportive way to tackle those goals. Grady Harp, November 17
Starting from his own history of successes and challenges, James gives much greater focus to developing the right mindset than to developing the perfect exercise plan. It is not like you are not going to get tips on what to exercise. But, what you are going to get from this book is some support and motivation around the lies we tell ourselves when we fail our exercise challenges and tips about the ways to go around them. Most people fail in these areas. Starting from your mind to train your body will reward your body in ways that you haven’t imagined, and vice versa, of course. Only someone who has been physically active for longer periods knows the positive effect of exercise on mental health. James Atkinson says he thinks that the role of exercise in mental health is underrated. I totally agree James - it should be used as an officially recognized mandatory treatment, and perhaps you are the one that could push the change.
I enjoyed the book. I like the suggestions Jim has for the gradual change over the course of a year. Making the changes gradually like this makes it more likely that these will become permanent lifestyle changes.
I think he makes some really great points too about the importance of mind-set and how much health and fitness can have a positive effect on your mental health. I agree that people often neglect this, myself included.
I would have liked to have seen a calendar in the back of the book on which we could plan out our year. Week numbers for each fitness tip would have been helpful too.
This self-help book stands out to me for not being gimmicky. There are no restrictive food plans pushed, no supplements for purchase, and no more material needed than this one book and a desire to change your life. The style the information is given in is one of real life. Simple, quick adjustments to current eating habits, customizable exercise additions, and common sense nixing of negative influences in the way you approach your health in general. Health and Fitness Tips is a no-nonsense manual for living the healthiest life you possibly can, regardless of your current position on the health spectrum.
