"I did not always look like this," says Basedow. "I looked like a bowling pin on legs. Any weight I gained went right to my midsection." After trying just about every fitness fad and gimmick with little success, he created a workout and nutrition plan that took him from having no muscle definition to the body of his dreams.
FITNESS MADE SIMPLE spotlights Basedow`s signature fitness triangle program that features a fat- fighting nutrition plan, the most effective lean muscle- building workouts and solid advice on which supplements can actually produce "cosmetically significant" results rather than just false hope and a depleted bank account. The book offers a fitness regimen that provides readers with results because the plan works with human nature not against it. In order to achieve a great physique, FITNESS MADE SIMPLE`s foundation suggests the following:
- Train smarter, not harder
- Eat more, not less
- Do not substitute supplements as an effective workout or nutrition program
In his book, Basedow emphasizes that the Fitness Made Simple plan is not a short term diet. It is a lifestyle change. "There are little ways people can increase their activity and calorie expenditure during the day to tip the calorie in/calorie out equation in their favor," says Basedow. "Standing burns more calories than sitting, walking burns more than standing and running burns more than walking. Taking the stairs instead of an elevator and parking in the furthest spot from a destinatio, even little things like these help burn more calories each day which can translate nicely into lost pounds." FITNESS MADE SIMPLE goes on to explain:
- 6 rules for sticking with a fitness program
- 10 tips for nutrition success
- 10 tips for living lean and healthy
- 40 super foods to build muscle & shed fat
The book includes more than 200 photos revealing a variety of exercises along with several real-life success stories of men and women - from teenagers to grandparents - who have improved their bodies and lives with Basedow`s programs. Plus, Basedow tells his own inspiring story of how he took control of his body and life while accumulating years of health and fitness wisdom along the way. His signature "John- isms" - sprinkled throughout the book - are included to keep readers motivated while following their new fitness lifestyle. A special bonus 45-minute DVD made exclusively for FITNESS MADE SIMPLE accompanies each book and features an innovative mix of Basedow`s favorite six-pack-defining abs workouts, stress-relieving stretches and result- producing fitness tips.
FITNESS MADE SIMPLE empowers people to change their bodies and lives. This book is a must-have for anyone who wants to achieve a stronger and healthier physique.
