GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: Get Energy by Denise Austin

 

 

Description

With busy schedules, demanding careers, and little time, many of us battle just to stay awake. But energy is something that is in our control, even when time is short. Now 50 years young, fitness guru Denise Austin shows readers how to super-charge their lives, using her innovative lifestyle plan. She eats the right foods at the right time of day. She uses the power of stretching and breathing to feed her body with energy-enhancing oxygen. She uses mini-workouts to get energy even on her busiest days--and now you can too!

Denise shows how simple changes can add up to increased energy levels throughout the day. From the foods they consume to the way they sit in their chairs, readers won't believe how Denise's quick and easy plan will dramatically increase their energy levels. In as little as a week, results will be felt: radiant skin, more restful sleep, and a sharper mind...so follow Denise Austin and prepare for a fitness wake-up call!

About the Author

A native of San Pedro, California, Denise Austin started gymnastics at the age of 12 and earned an athletic scholarship to the University of Arizona, graduating in 1979 with a Bachelor's degree in education with an emphasis in exercise physiology. She began her career teaching aerobic exercise classes in the Los Angeles area and went on to co-host the The Jack LaLanne Show, in 1981.
During more than 25 years promoting health and fitness, Denise has created 82 workout videos/DVDs. Her enormous number of sales led to her 2003 induction into the Video Hall of Fame.
Denise has been married for 25 years to Jeff Austin, a sports attorney and brother of tennis champ Tracy Austin. They share a home with their two teenage daughters, Kelly and Katie.

    MY THOUGHTS
    LOVED IT

    First off, this is NOT a diet or exercise book.  Yes, there are diet and exercise suggestions through out the book, but they are helpful hints and some lifestyle changes that can help towards that first step of taking action.  Get Energy is all about figuring out what is blocking you from taking action and overcoming the hardest thing:  taking that first step.  I love that this makes it easy to do one little thing at a time that can make a difference in your daily life.  Austin doesn't make you feel bad that you have bad habits, she tries to make you understand how each little thing can help you change for the better.

    The book is broken down into bite size bits that are easy to digest and actually accomplish.  Although I doubt I will ever look anything like Denise Austin, it is comforting to know that she has the same issues and problems that most women around 50 have and that at this time in our lives, our bodies are changing.  I have tried several of the suggestions in this book when I am feeling out of sorts and they really do help.  Even getting up and walking around the block can help change your outlook on life.  Everyone needs this book and it will help your New Year's resolutions so much easier!
