5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! Some Honesty in the PT Industry, 9 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Men's Fitness 12 Week Body Plan (Mens Health) (Paperback)
There have been many training fads through the years which claim to give you miraculous transformations with minimal effort. Anybody who has spent time training, competing in sport or studying those people that have been successful will fully understand that results do not come without sacrifice and effort. The 12WBP makes no ludicrous claims, no miracle cure for the physique you want. What it does, and one of the things that I admire about Nick Mitchell, is deliver honesty. It gives great detail on exactly how Joe Warner made his journey to the cover. No short cuts, no 6 minute abs; just attention to detail, consistency, graft in the gym and personal sacrifice.

The integrity that Nick displays, not only in this book, but his online blog and the UP Facebook site is beyond refreshing. All too often I see the PT industry being marred by a new emerging minority of 'experts' who claim to deliver the results without the need for the effort. Through the book and the blog, Nick dispels the falisy of the easy route and shows his readers that they have to commit, dig deep, lift correctly in time proven methods, eat properly and take the adequate rest. Nothing revolutionary. Just absolute honesty. I feel this is the mark of him and his team as it would be far easier to market something that claims to make it easy.

If you are new to training and paying a PT - buy this book and cross reference what they are doing with you to what Nick did with Joe. It might save you a fortune in wasted money!

For everybody else, I thoroughly recommend this read. Whether you are doing the competition, looking for a personal challenge or would like a handrail to model your training around this book is worth every penny. The nutrition section is highly informative without drowning the reader, as is the chapter on supplements.

Personally, I cannot criticise this publication in anyway. The effort that Nick and Joe have gone to, to make his transformations available to the masses are fantastic and the book illustrates every exercise in detail so even a beginner training alone could follow the routines.

Great book. Buy. Read. Work hard. See for yourself.

I just wanted to highlight something you said:

"If you are new to training and paying a PT - buy this book and cross reference what they are doing with you to what Nick did with Joe. It might save you a fortune in wasted money!"

That is an excellent piece of advice. It can take only 6 weeks to get to REPS III and thus become a PT - and yet not necessarily remember/know very much. Nick himself says that his pet chimp could get the qualification! He further goes on to say:

"OK, I don't actually have a pet chimp, but if I did I think he would do a better job than a full 50% of the chumps in most mainstream commercial gyms whom I see purporting to be professional trainers. A chimp or a chump - one you can get for a banana, the other £50/hour. The chimp wins hands down"

It would have been interesting if this magbook had included a section on 'How to choose your personal trainer'.
