About the Author
Jake Nash is not only an experienced personal trainer and "trainer of trainers" with the experience of training hundreds of clients, but he's also a scientist and business professional. He wasn't genetically blessed or a washed up athlete, but a real world professional that understands your problems and your life. Fitness training went from a hobby (during his 17 years as a laboratory engineer) to his profession (3 studios with 20+ full time trainers), and now he's set his sites on helping more people than ever before.

Jake Nash speaks realistically. He is superb physical trainer who debunks the nonsense that glides so freely past our eyes and haunts our thoughts as we face the morning mirror. His approach to diet, exercise, workout, metabolic balance and achieving realistic goals is sound, supported by fine discussions of the pros and cons of all of the free-floating misinformation aimed at marketing 'New Youth', and explains his well-considered concepts in open language that not only reads well as a book, but also makes his input digestible and, more important, workable.
Likely everyone who read's Nash's book THE THINKING PERSON'S GUIDE TO FITNESS has read or listened to expensive books or CDs or trainer programs on DVDs. To those people who still have the 'maybe tomorrow' idea of getting in shape, or 'perhaps I'll first try colon cleansing or running marathons or joining line dancing clubs, or taking herbal diet aides' attitude, prepare to be addressed as an adult by an adult who in addition to being a solid thinking trainer and physical fitness expert also happens to write VERY well. This is a special book for special people who care about their corporal temple and their longevity Nash makes it all understandable and workable. Grady Harp, December 10
