P.A.C.E.: The 12-Minute Fitness Revolution by Dr. Al Sears
(For review from Phenix Publicity)
Dr. Al Sears, expert on longevity and heart health has written a new book that will appeal to many readers out there who think they don't have the time to work out. According to Sears, in just 12 minutes a day you can build lung strength, bullet-proof your heart and lose weight! This book throws out conventional wisdom on exercise and weight loss. It gives solid research, proving that Cardio and Aerobic training are not giving people the kind of health benefits they are touted to give. In fact, they could be bad for your health.
P.A.C.E. is fast becoming a health revolution. People around the world are trying this new exercise program and seeing great results. With the P.A.C.E. program, readers will learn how to tap into their reserves and build lung capacity, which improves heart health. P.A.C.E. is based on high intensity bursts of exercise followed by rest and then repetition. Anyone can do it and you don't have to go to the gym or have expensive equipment. If you follow Dr. Sears plan, and eat a healthy diet based on the Glycemic Index you can see results almost immediately. One of the major proponents of the plan includes adaptation and changing your work outs up a bit, so you don't get bored and exercise remains fun and enjoyable.
This program can be done inside or outside, which is good for any climate. Participants can be any age, including elderly and still see great results. In fact, Dr. Sears is an expert on aging and believes that this program is really beneficial to older exercisers who want to stay fit and out of wheel chair in their later years. Dr. Sears website, www.pacerevolution.com has a lot of information including video's that will give step by step instructions on the P.A.C.E. program. This is one fitness book that turns the others on it's ear!
I enjoyed the idea of not being the gym hours at a time slaving over Aerobics or Cardio workouts. 12-minutes of exertion followed by rest, seems right up my ally. I'm a diabetic and I struggle with my weight, after reading this book. I think I'm going to try this program for myself. I'll keep you posted on my progress. If you decide to take this challenge and try P.A.C.E. for yourself, let us know and we'll monitor our progress together.
P.A.C.E. is available NOW from your favorite bookseller!
I'm giving this 4 out of 5 apples from my book bag!
