Be Your Best: 8 Ways to Build Confidence, Lose Weight, Beat Stress, Get Fit - Sally GunnellHarperCollins, 2001, Paperback.
Condition: Very Good.
CLEARANCE OFFER - EXPIRES: 17 November 2009 Be Your Best is a home fitness plan from super-athlete Sally Gunnell (OBE) that aims to work for real lives. Gunnell's intentions are undoubtedly good as she aims to help Mr and Mrs Ordinary get on the track to fitness and health. The chapter on Motivation sets the tone for the sections on exercise, eating and relaxing. The focus is by no means on diet-only (only one of the "real-life" participants actually loses weight) this is about making gradual changes to every aspect of your lifestyle. Sadly there's not enough of the inspirational about this book and even the realistic visuals end up being simply unflattering. Translating this retired athlete's phenomenal and undeniable motivation into the basis of a start-up health plan results in an insubstantial approach. 192pp.
