  1. Review by Nancy Rector for Principles and Labs for Physical Fitness
    This is a great book overall and is written by a couple who have been married for over 30 years and have been actively engaged in a healthy lifestyle all that time. I’m very much into health, though through more simple and alternative methods, but this gave me a basic working knowledge of the body and exercise which I found incredibly helpful. I found a handfull of things I would disagree with, mainly concering food and drink… such as the comment that caffinated beverages count towards your water intake… I would vehemently argue that as much proof exists to the contrary … caffiene is also a diuretic. But I have a good underlying knowlege of food so I was able to just ignore the things I disagreed with. But the mechanics of the body and exercise were wonderful and its a good source of fact and also can be quite inspiring to read. I learned many things I didn’t know, such as where you carry your fat makes a difference in your health. Knowing this was written by a couple who practice what they preach really made it even more meaningful.

    very informative book about health and fitness, with many recent studies and facts to support why we need to be better fit, especially here in the USA!
