Love the body you were born with! Easy to say, but often hard to do. Until now. In CRUNCH: A Complete Guide to Health and Fitness, the creators of the innovative Crunch fitness movement in New York City and Los Angeles bring you a radically different fitness book. One that incorporates cutting edge information on every aspect of health and fitness, and one that will leave you loving your body, not envying someone else's! Based on the belief that being healthy involves understanding your own body first--your capacity for aerobic exercise, as well as your genetic makeup, muscle-to-fat ratio, flexibility, posture, and overall strength--the book begins with charts and tests to help you customize an exercise program that will meet the goals you've set. Goals that are realistic for your body, not some super-deluxe supermodel's. Once you know what you want to achieve, Crunch tells you how to achieve it. From aerobic exercise to strength training, nutrition to posture, Crunch gives you the latest information. And over 150 photos of easy-to-follow, proven exercises help you mix and match moves that will have you firming up, slimming down, getting strong, and--most importantly--having fun working out! So, if you believe beauty comes from understanding and making the most of your body--and you want to have a good time doing it--Crunch is for you.
