Get Energy: Book Review and Giveaway



About The Book:


With busy schedules, demanding careers, and little time, many of us battle just to stay awake. But energy is something that is in our control, even when time is short. Now 50 years young, fitness guru Denise Austin shows readers how to super-charge their lives, using her innovative lifestyle plan. She eats the right foods at the right time of day. She uses the power of stretching and breathing to feed her body with energy-enhancing oxygen. She uses mini-workouts to get energy even on her busiest days--and now you can too!

Denise shows how simple changes can add up to increased energy levels throughout the day. From the foods they consume to the way they sit in their chairs, readers won't believe how Denise's quick and easy plan will dramatically increase their energy levels. In as little as a week, results will be felt: radiant skin, more restful sleep, and a sharper mind...so follow Denise Austin and prepare for a fitness wake-up call!








About The Author:


A native of San Pedro, California, Denise Austin started gymnastics at the age of 12 and earned an athletic scholarship to the University of Arizona, graduating in 1979 with a Bachelor's degree in education with an emphasis in exercise physiology. She began her career teaching aerobic exercise classes in the Los Angeles area and went on to co-host the The Jack LaLanne Show, in 1981.

During more than 25 years promoting health and fitness, Denise has created 82 workout videos/DVDs. Her enormous number of sales led to her 2003 induction into the Video Hall of Fame. 


Denise has been married for 25 years to Jeff Austin, a sports attorney and brother of tennis champ Tracy Austin. They share a home with their two teenage daughters, Kelly and Katie.



My Review:


Although I initially thought that Get Energy: Empower Your Body, Love Your Life was a diet and exercise book, I was very quickly corrected. Though there are a number of healthy eating tips and workout ideas, this book is so much more than that. Its about recognizing were you are drained and how to regain your lost energy, both physically and mentally. It also teaches the reader the connection between the two. 


A really great read that has given me a lot to think about as I look at my personal goals for 2011. 


I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.

  5. I am going to the Fitness Challenge registration for our city on Wednesday morning. Somehow, even with six auto immune diseases and taking all of these medications to help me with the pain, I have got to find a way of losing some weight for my own peace of mind. I have no energy, have trouble sleeping at night, and am basically just a mess. This is just one of the avenues that I am taking this year to take ownership of my own health.
