1.0 out of 5 stars Complete waste of money, 19 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We had actually 2 of those. The first one lasted for about 3 years. In a family with 2 young children that was not-too-bad, but not good either. The second one lasted 15 month when its mother board malfunctioned. Indesit proves the point that "you get what you pay for". Personally, I will never, ever buy anything with Indesit written on it. Unless you are desperate, do NOT buy these machines.

5.0 out of 5 stars A practical guide for beginners to intermediate exercisers, 4 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found Men's Health Big Book of Exercise to be a great help.

I am coming from a practical angle - the sport and nutrition science discussed in other reviews goes straight over my head.

My starting point was: middle aged, overweight and confused what to do. I went to the gym 6 month prior to buying the book 3 times a week doing only cardio: rowing, x-trainer, stepper, crunches, etc. That lost me about 6 kg (1 stone) and I got stuck.

When I read the Men's Health Big Book of Exercises advice "you need to do weights" I was really sceptical. However, I followed the (excellent) workout plans in the back of the book and my weight loss got moving again - about 4.5 kg IN A MONTH. This will obviously slow down, but their advice was spot on for me.

I would look at the book as a "beginners to intermediate" guide, written in plain layman's language the average (and not obsessed) man can actually understand. As all sports books, I recommend to read the summary, do the trial and error thing and reread the chapters properly once you start getting the hang of it.

Personally, I am very grateful to Men's Health for having published the book, which has really met my needs.
