This book caught my eye so I decided to give it a go.
Whilst eating an ice cream (surprisingly ironic), this book had a plethora of chapters. It was particularly helpful to finding my Resting Heart Rate and maximum heart rate which I kept in mind in my workouts.
Certainly a book to read for all women :)

For those that are starting on the fitness journey this is a wonderful place to start ...more

Overall it was a good book for tips and tricks but that is about it. I do like the detailed workouts & stretches as it can be hard with just a photo.

I liked it. I wrote down a few of the yoga poses and routines, but over all it seemed to me like common sense.
