Working Out Sucks!
Chuck Runyon delivers on an honest and thorough life-changing self-help book that doesn't pull punches; but what do you expect with a title like "Working Out Sucks!"? Runyon promises his "kick-start" plan will get you revved up and in shape in 21 days and it'll be the only health and fitness regime you'll ever need.
Broken up into 4 parts, Runyon, who is also the entrepreneur behind the successful national fitness chain Anytime Fitness, doesn't contend he has all the answers, so he shares the stage with an additional pair of professional consultants that offer up advice on proper nutrition, physical fitness and finding a life balance. Runyon's main goal is to help the reader get to the root of the problem and destroy the behaviors that continue to hold us up - "mugging" our lives. It's a bared down and real approach that puts the power back in your hands.
The most useful breakthrough advice that truly moves this handy book into practical practice is its ability to put into real terms the defining limitations that we create for ourselves. When you realize the power of "mind over matter" - that the brain can be your own worst enemy, but your mind is in control - you can change behaviors and design a plan that works for you and not against you.
With the added voices of Rebecca DeRossett, an expert on behavioral-change, and Brian Zehetner, a registered diet specialist, Runyon's advice is relatable and enough to get you on track to your fitness goals in 2012. No doubt working out sucks...but the alternative is even more sucky!
