Hold It You should know that:

  • Walking is "not" one of the best exercises and will never get you fit
  • For certain body types, stair climbers will "not" trim your thighs and buttocks or give you slim hips
  • You do "not" need expensive health club memberships to become fit
  • You do "not" need to exercise for more than an hour a day to lose weight or increase your fitness level
"Hold It You're Exercising Wrong" analyzes popular exercise techniques and explains why they do or do not work. Using his client-proven methods of fitness, Edward Jackowski renames body types and stresses their importance when choosing an exercise routine, details the four essential phases of any workout, lists the best exercises for weight loss, and provides motivational techniques to keep you going. Interspersing more than 150 tips on health and exercise, "Hold It You're Exercising Wrong" is a no-nonsense, all-you-need-to-know guide to getting fit and staying that way.
