Review:

Bob Greene is best known as Oprah Winfrey's personal trainer and coauthor of their bestselling Make the Connection, which is about taking your first steps to fitness and weight loss. Now he's back with the next phase: elevating your fitness program, staying motivated, and creating permanent change. "You create yourself through choice," says Greene, and the way to overcome old habits or laziness is to make every choice conscious, whether you're opening the refrigerator door or deciding whether to skip your workout because it's raining. Keep the Connection is, as you'd expect, full of exercises--but many of the exercises are mental. Greene holds that you can't change until you understand yourself, so he offers several mental exercises to help you become more self-aware. After you've had your mental workout, Greene describes the four components of fitness: flexibility (with photos of stretches), cardiovascular power and endurance, abdominal and back fitness (with photos of a variety of crunches), and muscular strength and endurance (illustrated using Cybex machines). Greene also outlines a sensible nutrition plan based on the food pyramid, and gives 18 recipes.

The book is filled with anecdotes about the people Greene has trained. (Judging from the number of his clients, this man must never sleep!) If you're ready to make changes that will improve your body and enhance your life, this book will help you do it. --Joan Price
