"I have owned this book for quite some time now, and it's usefulness has not been worn out yet. The book shows you tons of moves and the workouts are put together very well, using all of those moves. You can tune the workout for beginner to extreme athlete. Usually when I'm looking for a break from the gym, or just traveling, I turn to this book for a great workout. If you do HIIT a couple times a week, just look to this book for the workout and crank up the pace. If you want to get in shape, the tools to do so are in this book!"

"This almanac gives you enough variety in the workout routine each day to ward off boredom, with a different daily routine for an entire year. I'll never have to pay gym dues again or buy that stuff that they sell on TV at 4 AM, just so I can sell it to someone else in a garage sale a couple of years later. I like the fact that the exercises are easy to understand and that I can adjust the intensity to match my fitness level. Since the book costs less than one month at the gym, it was a no-brainer for me."
