Okay... this book is a little dumb. I was hoping it would focus on trail running and other things you can do outside beyond urban centres... especially since I live way in the country.
Unfortunately it takes indoor programs and moves them outdoors. Not only that but it is mostly city oriented.
It also focuses on weight loss rather than enjoying the outdoors in a health manner.
If you are looking for an urban and sub-urban calisthenics workout to lose weight: this is for you. If you want

I was willing to overlook a lot of chirpy blonde self-promotion if this exercise program worked as claimed. I needed a break from running but wanted to stay in some sort of reasonable shape in the meantime, without having to do time in some gym. I picked up this book looking for some sort of game plan. There are good exercises here, notably some you can perform anywhere. I'm not above doing leg-lifts while waiting to cross the street, or stretching in the elevator.

other than the fact that it seemed to be geared towards women, i found it useful & will probably be borrowing it from the library again when i can start getting some outdoor workouts in my schedule.

Really enjoyed this book! I have been a gym rat for years and was looking for a change. Tina's book was just what I needed...she shows you how to use the natural terrain around you (backyard, trail, playground, beach, etc.) as your personal gym. My body is stronger, my mind is clearer and I now look forward to my workouts.(less)

I feel that we should do all of our exercising outside instead of in cold, dark gyms with no vegetation and singing birds. But still, I wouldn't know how to write a whole book on this stuff - just tell people to go outside and exercise!!

I was hoping that this book would help transition me to exercising outside in a more naturalistic way. Sadly, it was just step aerobics done on building steps and park benches and other gym type exercises done on trees instead of gym equipment.
