Fit Quickies: 5-Minute, Targeted Body-Shaping Workouts Reviews

    Loved this book. It came into my life with perfect timing - right when I'm getting more and more worried about the huge amount of time I spend sitting for my job and leisure activities. With more studies coming out all the time about how sitting for extended periods of time is no good for you, no matter if you get a single good workout in during the day, it's nice to have some ideas of things I can do to break up the sitting. Some of the exercises are extremely simple, non-intimidating, and require no equipment. I just did one before I sat down here; it took 2 minutes, required no horrible, painful effort, and I'm still feeling the effects 15 minutes later; my muscles are still warmed up, and the blood is flowing. This is not just a beginner's book, though. Advanced exercisers will probably find plenty in here as well.My favorite thing about the book was all the supplemental information surrounding the exercise expositions. All of it was smart, simple, scientifically-supported advice either on exercise (of course), diet, and mindset. I will be referring to this book for years to come, I hope.

    This is exercise the way I love it- in short quick effective bursts. Lani is the celebrity coach for the Physicians' Committee For Responsible Medicine's 21-Day Vegan Kickstart and VegRun programs and is the health and fitness expert for Vegan Mainstream as well as a fitness adviser for the Dr. John McDougall Health and Medical Center. She also holds a master's in physical education and is an associate professor at Butte College. Obviously she is no fly-by-night dabbling in exercise and fitness!I must tell you that she had her publisher send me this book. Those who know me well know that I write honest reviews. I have ruffled feathers and lost several author friends due to being so honest I dissed their books. If I give praise, the author has earned it. As a vegan, I am very familiar with the good works of the Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine and their sensible, research-based approach to health. If you would like to learn more about them, their address is www.pcrm.orgMy 19 year old daughter is using this book as a fitness tool and it is appropriate for all ages. You don't have to be a vegan to benefit but if you care about your health (and animal abuse), why not go ahead and become a vegan too?Lani offers advice on how to use exercises to target specific "trouble" area and the book is illustrated to show how to do the exercises. She also offers some excellent advice about eating well to help maintain a healthy body. She writes in a friendly tone and comes right beside you to offer help, encouragement and advise. Do yourself a favor and buy this as a gift to yourself and your body/health. The workouts are great and really are quickies. Now, with the help of this wonderful book, you can truly shape your body in just your spare minutes each day. I recommend this book!

    I think this is a great book. I'm a certified personal trainer and know that people are always looking for some quick exercises that target specific areas that are easily done without going to the gym. Lani Muelrath starts with focusing on a specific problem area on the body. She gives information about why the area can be a problem, then goes into detail on the fix for the problem. She includes diagrams of the muscles that will be effected by the exercise fix and gives two different positions for doing the exercise. My two favorite sections for each exercise are the isolation and anchor point areas. The anchor points help to maintain good posture which in turn helps in isolating the correct muscles that are intended to be focused on in the exercise.This book is easy to follow and gives just the right amount of muscle and science anatomy without making it feel like a text book.

    I won this book on first reads giveaway. Fit Quickies has 14 exercises that are easy to understand. Some of these exercises I have not seen before, they are new and updated. I especially enjoyed working with the physioball and the playground ball. The book starts off with your goals/results you might like, the workout time, and the equipment needed. There are photos to help with the positions showing you exactly how to do it. At the end there are examples of some of the common errors people make while doing these exercises.

    I won this book on Goodreads Giveaways.I never read this kind of book but for some reason this book caught my attention and I entered the contest to win a copy. I am certainly glad I did because I loved "Fit Quickies." Lani explained weight loss and management in a personal way that was easy to understand and easy to relate to. She has motivated me through her book and I have already started my trek to a new healthy me. Thanks Lani!

    As part of my plan to read 100 books this year I have been scooping books off my home shelf that are only partially read (sometimes, if read at all) and this is the case with "Fit Quickies". Lani Muelrath has written an intelligent exercise book with an overarching 'healthy lifestyle' approach that includes a lovely, non-preachy section on the plant-strong, whole foods diet that she herself adheres to and explanations about how we can overcome cravings and other saboteurs (through exercise, meditation, and 'working' our willpower muscle). But mostly this book hones in on an easy, quick, inexpensive, safe method of shaping up. I appreciate the step-by-step breakdowns of each Fit Quickie (there are 14 of them that can be mixed and 'bundled' once you know what you want and how to do them), the photos of Lani herself (in my age group, filling me with hope and inspiration) doing the various exercises, wise counsel, tips on advancing with each particular exercise, Lani's own inspiring story, and lots of encouragement.I'm particularly encouraged by the directions to those who have been on a "long vacation from working out" to do Fit Quickie #1 (for a flat stomach) until it is mastered and then to move along to the next, and so on. It is my general style to jump in with both feet and try to amp up to the advanced level of whatever before I've actually figured out what I'm doing. I feel like I have permission to take it slow and be kind in the process. I'm excited to know that even if it takes me several months, if I spend only a few minutes a week doing Fit Quickie #1 I will eventually have a flat tummy again (thanks to the girdling muscles I will build up). It has been quite a while since I've read an 'fitness book' from cover to cover. I recommend that if you get this book you do the same for the optimal experience and learning. Now I'm off to walk my dog, part of my ongoing exercise to augment the Quick Fitties!

    Good body shaping exercises for all. Usually, I skip anything that targets specific body areas for shaping, going more for the whole body fitness approach. However, Lani's layout of exercises combines whole body fitness with toning specific areas in a sensible, easy to follow format. Now, to just do the routines...LOLFinished this a while ago, & neglected updating. Just started her new book, The Plant-based Journey, & am enjoying it.

    Fit Quickies delivers exactly what it promises: fast targeted workouts that you can fit anywhere in your day. Mostly using body weight, these are isolations pairing a strengthening exercise with a stretch. I found the illustration and quick explanation of each muscle group helpful, as well as recommendations to increase the challenge and impact of each exercise over time.
