A fundamental look at the basic reasons why most individual fitness programs fail or lose their effectiveness over time. Dr Paul Kennedy reveals the basic reasons for lack of success in typical, well-intentioned programs and the simple adjustments that can correct those problems. In many cases, these adjustments, while uncomplicated and easily implemented, are often overlooked or not perceived as the 'critical little things' that are the difference between long-term fitness goal achievement and the nagging frustration of a programme doomed to failure. With dozens of photographs, charts, illustrations, several easy-to-use personal training logs and diaries, plus a questionnaire to assist in establishing individual fitness readiness, this easy-to-read and entertaining book has everything you need to make your fitness program REALLY work in the REAL world.
