There are a lot of books on weight training but this is the first that hits a home run with it's straight forward, easy to follow content, images and layout.

The book is rich in explanation while maintaining an elegant simplicity that anyone can follow. It is the first, no the ONLY weight training book I wanted to browse like a coffee table book.

Leah Garcia hits one out of the ballpark with this easy to follow training gude. I used to walk into the gym and wonder where to start. Now, I bring Weight Training for Women to the gym with me and follow the program to get in a full body workout -- in much less time than ever before. Thanks for creating a wonderful resource, Ms. Garcia!

I was author Leah Garcia's first personal training client in Boulder over 10 years ago. She was coming off a career as one of the top ranked mountain bike racers in the world. She was an expert on muscle confusion, periodization and proper nutrition long ago. I thought I was in decent shape for an almost 40 year old until I moved to Boulder and met Leah. She transformed me and my body in a short amount of time. We worked hard...I couldn't say no to her when she demanded one more rep...I loved it when she spotted me doing squats...and the other members of the gym enjoyed watching...her, not me. I learned so much about how to eat, when to eat, and what to eat to go along with the workouts. I still do what I learned from her all those years ago and I still enjoy great health, but live in KC instead of Boulder. I guarantee if you purchase the book and do exactly what she says and make it a lifestyle, you will be happy, fit, and healthy for years. You will enjoy her enthusiam for fitness no matter what age group you are in. I am buying 10 to give to wife and friends. It's about time she wrote this book!
