I was puzzled to read the bad reviews on the site. To comment on them briefly, this book is not perfect. It does indeed have some infuriating copy errors. It does fail to answer a few of my most basic questions like 'does it matter what time of day you exercise'. But look, it does exactly what it says on the cover. And it has just changed my health life forever.
I started out 90 days ago as a complete beginner to exercise. I literally had never been in a gym, and was ridiculously overweight after years of overindulgence. I bought the book, got myself some shorts and trainers, and joined a gym. I followed the programme pretty closely, which meant a serious commitment of 3 to 4 evenings a week. But having a plan to follow, divided up into 5 phases, meant I had targets to meet.
The result - I have finally, after years of talking and thinking about it, turned my body around. When I started out 3 months ago I would honestly never have believed that I would be able to do the workouts in phase 5. Well now I can, and there's no looking back. The best thing is that I am 110% motivated to keep fit.
I don't usually write these reviews, but I really wouldn't want anyone else to be put off a book that could do so much for you by some bad reviews. And who said this was a waste of money?...
