Format: Paperback
I am a 44 year-old woman with a 2 yr-old boy and about 2 stones to lose and all I can say is this has really worked for me so far. In the two weeks since I started I have lost 3 inches from my waist, an amazing 2 inches from EACH calf and one inch from hips and bust. What is more, I feel so much fitter and more positive in that time, with loads more energy and a real sense of committment. I love doing the exercises as I see this whole programme as something important that I am doing for myself (as most parents of small children know, this is often a forbidden luxury). Also, Dr Peeke's assessment of what happens to a woman's body at around 40 is very clear and explains why I am in this situation now after a lifetime of being very slim.
There is no need to join a gym (I haven't - I use a rebounder and cycle for the aerobic workout) and the cost of the hand weights is very low. Maybe in a few months time I will not be so positive, but I doubt it - this programme has really gripped me and I am determined to see it as a new way of life.

Brilliant book for the girls. I have bought dumb bells now. It's very readable and the instructions are very clear.

This book made me realize what is going on with my body in the forties. It also made me understand what I have to do to keep my body fit and loose those extra pounds. I wish I have found it sooner.

I was looking forward to receiving this book as I already own the original version and thought it would be good to have some specific advices for women. Unfortunately it has nothing new in it! Not even a section about how you go a about your training during your monthly bad week, which would have been so helpful. In all, I felt that this is a watered down and less motivating version than the original book so no real reason to be. :(
