About the Author:

Gretchen Reynolds writes the popular 'Phys Ed' column for the New York Times.

She has won a number of awards for her writing and reporting, including two nominations for the prestigious National Magazine Awards.

Review:

'Brilliantly explained, painstakingly researched and rather fascinating. Whether you're a die-hard fitness fan or simply want to know where to start on the road to a healthier, happier life, this should be your new fitness bible.' -- Closer 'Smart, clear, and beautifully useful, this is the new fitness bible for the modern age.' -- Dan Coyle, author of The Talent Code '[Reynolds'] can-do attitude gives a much-needed boost when it comes to throwing off the frowsty threads of winter and leaping into a cool and glamorous spring ... Her USP lies in showing readers how to employ physiology, biology and psychology to "train smarter, recover quicker and achieve your fitness goals."' -- The Lady 'Exercise books are as common as faulty Christmas lights, but there are few that will match this work.' -- Sunday Business Post `This is a science book, first and foremost ... you will learn about the current state of physiology, biology, psychology, and the neurology of couch potatoes and of athletes and everyone inbetween. What's cool is how much we now know, and how much we used to "know" was wrong. The big takeaway is that a little exercise is enormously better than none. And fidgeting is good.' -- John * Goodreads * `Armed with the information in this book, readers will be inspired and motivated to reassess their habitual exercise programs and make positive changes.' * Publisher's Weekly * `Whether directed at a marathoner or a once-a-week sprinter, Reynolds' important message rings true: "The body wants to move," she writes. "Go with it."... Solid advice with motivational oomph to get you up and running.' * Kirkus Review *
