Slash Your Workout Time

Fitter Faster slices through fads and misconceptions to reveal how you can exercise quickly and effectively. The book’s illustrated, easy-to-follow workout plans for all levels require as little as 15 minutes a day, providing aerobic, muscle-building, and fat-burning benefits that are similar to—or even greater than—what you’d get from much longer regimens.

Boost Your Exercise IQ

Examining everything from pre-workout stretches to post-workout protein shakes, Fitter Faster is packed with practical tips such as how to get and stay motivated, what clothing and equipment to buy, which dietary supplements really help (and which don’t), and how to combat muscle soreness.

It also dispels common fitness myths, revealing why walking 10,000 steps a day may be overrated; why taking pain killers before exercise could be counterproductive; why jogging may actually be good for your knees; and why you may need less water during exercise than you’ve heard.

This accessible guide to exercise will inspire you to get going, help keep you moving, and forever change the way you work out.
