Verdict: Few "body Bibles" can compete with this guide's clarity and organization. Each exercise is accompanied by a summary of the payoffs, required equipment, and recommended frequency/duration. While the flippant explanations of the payoffs (e.g., "Defines your flappage!") can be ambiguous, the color photos of fitness trainer Karter (KaronKarterPilates.com) and the clear descriptions easily compensate. An infinitely useful guide for readers at all fitness levels.
Background: Karter draws from weight training, strength work, Pilates, and yoga to present a regimen targeted to every body area. Eleven chapters are divided among three sections that focus on the core, the upper body, and the lower body. Readers follow one of four fitness-level tracks: beginner, intermediate, advanced, or super-advanced. Tips are interspersed throughout, as are mini anatomy lessons, prescribed cardio routines, and diet guidelines. -- Library Journal, Xpress Review
