Though reviews were bad I bought it and was not dissapointed

After reading all of the negative reviews on this site I was very hesitant to purchase this book. I figured I'd look it over for a half hour, say "Yep, they were right, it [stinks]" and put it with my pile of never read books. Fortunatly, when the book arrived I was very interested in the content. I carried this book with me for 3 days straight and read it cover to cover, and some sections, such as Firm Fuel, I read through several times.I found it to be very motivating, and while some concepts presented were not new(the benefits of eating whole foods over refined) the information was put forth in such a way as to make it seem real to me, and something that would be of grave consequences to my health if I were to ignore it. Some things however were new, such as eating small amounts of lean protien throughout the day coupled with complex-carbs, (every 2-3 hours)so that the muscles can rebuild effectively.I thought the method bashing was minimal, considering how built up other reviewers made it. I was very impressed with the Benson sisters' and also many instructors' insistance that your lifestyle be balanced and exercise not be out of porportion in it's importance.They say to "Be well rounded: Make time for work, play, family, healthy eating and exercise" It was an overall great investment, and really motivated me to take it a step further, though the videos alone were very effective. This book just may motivate me to be FIRM FOR LIFE.

I LOVE this book!

I read all the reviews of this book, and at first I was disappointed, but for some reason I find that often books that other reviewers dislike, I like. So I took a chance on it. I was not disappointed. First of all, I didn't take any offense to the author's mention of other fitness gurus and their methods. I have belonged to and worked at gyms and alot of the author's points are valid. I think they are just telling their story, not bashing anyone. As for the chapter on grooming, I found it to be refreshing. Take a look around at women and listen to them and it is obvious more people could heed this book's advice. Fitness is more than just muscles...it's the whole appearance, inside and out. The book is well written and I'm glad I bought it. (The print could be a tad larger though!)

I love this book!!!

I can understand the bashing that goes on about other fitness programs at the beginning of this book, because I have all those videos too and they never showed me the results that The Firm has. Until The Firm, I was working out and getting little to no results and I was about 90 pounds overweight. Now I am at my goal weight of 125 and I can't wait to exercise. No other program has done that for me. I love how this book explains that this type of living, working out aerobically with weights will change your life in every way. It has for me. It really is a lifestyle. Another thing, this will really interest the women more than anything-the back of my legs looked like they had "hail damage" you know, the cottage cheese look, well I am proud to say that I am now Cellulite Free and this is because of my working out with The Firm and eating exactly the way they described in the book. I highly recommend this book.

An inspiring and informative method to promote self-change

This book contains everything you need to know about getting and staying in shape, and as a result, changing your life for the better. It is a realistic approach to physical fitness, and is highly inspiring and motivational. The book discusses not only proper and effective exercise and nutrition, but also provides information about self-discipline, commitment, poise, goal-setting, and more. I fully believe that the Firm exercise method is the most effective exercise method available. The results I have gotten by working out with The Firm are living proof.

As good as the videos

Do you need some "get up and do it" motivation without a scolding? Much of the beginning I knew from years of doing the videos, but the book was just what I needed for the over 40, just quit smoking and packing on the pounds blahs I had. The book motivates even if your workout wasn't the best. "Every time is a layer of paint on a painting". I visited this site looking for the journal.
