Naked Fitness...Review by the Doctor

Naked Fitness is not about working out in the nude. And it’s not about being dressed in the best workout attire either. Naked Fitness is about stripping away all the clutter that stops you from getting your wonderful, beautiful body into the best shape possible. It’s about breaking down the barriers and fears that are keeping you from becoming motivated and staying on track. It’s about learning how to move your body without pain, align it to its fullest potential, and recognize how the correct alignment impacts your daily health.

Naked Fitness is not just another exercise book. Instead, it uniquely tailors a solution specific to your body and build. In Naked Fitness, you will look in the mirror and find your fountain of youth. Whether you are a couch potato or an agile athlete, you will learn how to look at your body and understand exactly what it needs to be in perfect alignment, and to feel and look your very best. The "Daily Ten" personalized routines are specific to which part of your spine needs alignment to function better. Whether you’re looking to lose weight, live healthier, or improve your performance on and off the field, you will find the answers in Naked Fitness. You can then take your routine one step further by completing the Naked Fitness web questionnaire and download your personalized exercise routine DVD.

Anyone who talks about posture as much as Andrea Metcalf does is going to get my vote!

When I first picked this up, my thoughts were "another weight loss book – what is it going to be this time?".  As a Doctor, I get tired of all the weight loss books out there.  This diet, that diet, this miracle pill, that fad idea.  Seriously, I’ve seen lots of it, and I expected more of the same insanity.

Nope – happy to say there is no garbage here.  What you have is a good lifestyle change book, but done with a great amount of knowledge and honestly.  Andrea gives you not only recipes for meals, but recipes for results.

She covers workouts (real ones, not the crazy ‘kill-you’ type programs that the fad personal trainers come out with), nutrition and more importantly how to change your life so that you can do this, stick with it, and make it work for you.

I highly recommend this book.  Common sense advice, with an uncommon touch.  Very enjoyable, and well worth the read.

Thanks to Anna Suknov of FSB  Associates for the opportunity to review this book.  You can learn more about Andrea Metcalf here.  You can purchase your own copy here.
