When I was first looking at this book on Amazon I thought to myself wow, this book is expensive (although there are alot more expensive books out there), but in the end I decided to go ahead with my purchase and I wasnt dissapointed.
The book is (as it says) the complete book of personal training. It is wrote by a well know author Douglas Brooks and the reading is straight forward and easy to understand. It covers a wide range of topics from setting up your own business to keeping clients, how to write the correct program upo for and how to progress your clients program correctly. It then goes on to discuss how to work with the older client, clients with various health related problems and more besides.
The book is a total of 598 pages and certainly a great read, I havent read it all yet, but from what I have read so far I certainly will be reading it all. I would recommend this book to others out there who wish to become a Personal trainer or even if you already are one (like me) because theres sure to be something to help you further in this book.
Dont be put off by the price, this book can and will teach you all you need to know to get you up and running with your own business. It isnt a boring book that seems to drag, but a more interesting book to read. You can also (as always) refer back to it at anytime....well worth the £40.00 asking price.
