30 Day Method Review and Giveaway...

Thanks to Hatchette Book Group, we recently had the chance to review this new book:


Tracy Anderson's 30-Day Method
The Weight-Loss Kick-Start that Makes Perfection Possible
By Tracy Anderson

Category: HEALTH & FITNESS
Format: HARDCOVER BOOK
Publish Date: 9/20/2010
Price: $25.99/$28.99
ISBN: 9780446562041
Pages: 272
Size: 7" x 9"

Synopsis:
"Did you know muscles get bored, just like people do? And did you also know that there's a 9 out of 10 chance that you're working the wrong muscles when you exercise? With TRACY ANDERSON'S 30-DAY METHOD you don't have to worry--her unique workout will help you drop the weight and shrink your body in just 30 days.Based on ten years of scientific research and experience getting not just herself, but A-list stars and everyday people, red carpet ready, Anderson has developed a unique 30-day diet and workout routine that reshapes the body and defies genetics to tone the muscles and drop the pounds. While most people incorrectly target their major muscle groups, like the bicep or hamstring, the focus should be on the smaller accessory muscles that can create a long, lean, balanced look--instead of bulked up look. Anderson's program is composed of a groundbreaking three-tiered approach, including a mat workout and cardio routine targeting the all-important accessory muscles, and an exclusive 30-day meal plan, complete with dozens of delicious recipes. This comprehensive kick-start program is unlike any other workout on the market and it leaves no chance for anything but terrific, fast results!"

What we thought: I loved this concept, and if you are good at following a strict exercise and diet regimen, this may be the book that changes your life. It is an inspiring book and it gets you pumped about losing weight, so thats great! However, when I got to the exercises, I found some of them very difficult to follow. Luckily, this book is accompanied by a DVD:) This book really has potential and, if you commit yourself to the plan, I think you would see the desired results and probably very quickly, possibly even within 30 days:)
