"I know I need to exercise, but I just don’t have time."

Now there are no excuses. If you can allot just 10 minutes a day for exercise, you can look better and feel better in just 30 days. Ten Minute Tone-Ups For Dummies describes a safe and sensible exercise program for men and women — one you can do in your home and at your convenience. It’s ideal for people who have not been active or for those who already have a fitness regime but want to expand it or tackle special problem areas. Whether you want quick results to look your best for an upcoming event such as a class reunion, wedding, or beach vacation (bathing suits are not forgiving), or have just faced the fact that your clothes aren’t really shrinking, this book helps you:

  • Motivate yourself and set realistic goals
  • Stretch, warm up, and cool down properly
  • Adapt exercises to your fitness level
  • Create an interactive workout
  • Target your trouble spots: the chest—upper back, slouching shoulders, flabby arms; the lower body—thighs, hamstrings and quadriceps, buns, and calves; the core: abs and lower back
  • Add cardio to your workout

Clear, step-by-step instructions and photos ensure that you do the exercises correctly and achieve maximum results. Written by Cyndi Targosz, a certified lifestyle/fitness expert, president and founder of STARGLOW Production, Inc., and a popular motivational speaker, this book also includes easy-to-follow guidelines for sound nutrition. If you tune- up your diet and tone-up your body, ten minutes a day make a tremendous difference in your looks and your life!

Nothing new in this book. It calls on you to put together your own exercises, as you want to focus, but doesn't REALLY explain how you can effectively tone ALL parts of the body in 10 minutes daily.
