Review

"Pat Manocchia's a great trainer because I can feed off his knowledge and intensity, which allows me to get more from myself." --Tennis legend John McEnroe

"Pat's training programs and methods have gotten me into the best off-season shape I've ever been in...Pat keeps your body in a good place, [but] he keeps your mind in an even better place." --NHL player Sean Avery

"As one of the fortunate to work one-on-one with Pat Manocchia, I've learned so much about fitness and health...I am thrilled that I can now carry his expertise in my suitcase all around the world--without the extra plane ticket. This book not only teaches but also demonstrates what changed my life forever. Thanks Pat." --Grammy Award-winning gospel and R&B singer BeBe Winans

The book is excellent. It is a simple plan, has great photos and describes everything in excellent detail.
Now if I can just find where I left it, I do want to change my workouts a bit....

Amazing book by an amazing trainer Dec 1 2010
By Myatt Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As someone who has penned several fitness books (including the Ultimate Dumbbell Guide and The Body You Want in the Time You Have) and has written about exercise for 17 years, I can say without question that Pat is one of the true--and few--pioneers in the 'no-spin, tell it like it is' approach to fitness and exercise. I rarely praise celebrity trainers because many that are 'known' really aren't as wise when it comes to fitness...they are simply admired for their client list. In Pat's case, there's a reason A-listers turn to him...his methods are sound, true and effective. Keep up the great work Pat... and thank you for producing one of the few books out there that definitely delivers the results that a reader would hope to expect.

Good, easy to follow exercise book May 5 2011
By M. Lata - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoy the simplicity of the exercises in this book. The author understands how to best activate your muscles with these 5 exercises but that doesn't mean you are going to have an easy workout! I'm sore after each workout no matter how many times I do them, which is a sign of using all different muscle groups to me. The workouts in the back of the book provide a good structure and variations are provided for different levels. I find the sample exercise programs a little difficult to understand and use at the gym as a "workbook". I usually have to bring something with me that is smaller to remember the workouts/reps. Overall a great buy for me as a moderate level fitness person.

strength training made simple and fun Oct. 22 2012
By Gorak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
People may not give this book the credit it deserves because on the shelf it looks like any number of generic workout '6 minute abs' books...lots of high rez photos and not a lot of text. However, this book is really clever in showing what types of exercises are important for overall health and strength (the 5 essentials) and shows some simple ways to program these as well. But I think the highlight is how it shows the many different ways you can do these exercises - with barbells, kettlebells, bodyweight, swiss balls, etc - allowing you to create different versions of the '5 essentials' based on what you've got to use and what feels 'fun' to you. A really good resource.

awesome book Dec 3 2012
By E. C. Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Has many great exercises and helps the reader to know which muscles are being used. Superior illustrations to comparable books. Good resource to figure out which exercises might help strengthen and individual's particular weaknesses. Probably contains exercises that are compatible with crossfit. Also, many of them can be done at home.
