  • Used Book in Good Condition

The fitness industry has become an unregulated misinformation machine. It is commonplace for well-built “gurus,” who lack any formal education, to be given a platform to promote a supplement, product, idea or TV show. Often the results they promise are physiologically impossible – costing you time and money, and ultimately robbing you of precious motivation. However, there is great information out there. Getting and staying fit is a science that has been developing for decades. Research is

    I am an NASM Certified Personal Trainer, and Certified TRX Trainer working in the Syracuse, NY area. This book, by Brent Brookbush is the single best publication regarding exercise that I’ve ever purchased. It dispels soo many of the rumors and myths about diet, exercise, supplements, and more. It has helped me greatly, both personally and professionally. If you’re serious about your health and fitness, I highly recommend purchasing this book. It’s a great resource. I carry it with me all the time and refer to it often for myself and my clients. I also recommend to my clients that they purchase it. On another note – if you want to see some of the best videos regarding stretching, exercise, and more – find Brent Brookbush on Twitter and YouTube. He has the BEST video channel I’ve seen yet. A FANTASTIC resource!

    Fitness or Fiction: The Truth About Diet and Exercise is a very thorough and detailed guide for anyone who wants to take action and get fit. Brent Brookbush answers all the questions that bewildered me regarding exercise, so many myths that got me really confused. His no-nonsense approach turns fitness into something accessible, realistic, rewarding and fun! The first part, on nutrition, shows how serious this approach is: there’s no fitness without good nutrition. I’m following Brent’s guidelines, which happen to match my nutrionist’s with great results. The emphasis on core strength has helped me a lot. Now I can enjoy many forms of exercise without injury, at my age (63), due to the core strength that I have developed with Brent’s guidance. This is also a textbook for anyone interested in working in fitness development. All of Brent’s claims are based on scientific papers referred in his extensive bibliography. If you’re looking for a comprehensive guide to help you get fit, this it, get it right away and enjoy!

    Brent has done an excellent job of presenting the “guts” of the fitness world for both beginners and advanced practitioners. The book addresses all the basic questions and myths about diet and fitness. The descriptions and photos of the exercises are clear and easy to follow. I will be recommending Brent’s book to all my clients.
