When Franklin S. Antoian of ibodyfit.com asked if any of the FitFluential Ambassadors would like a copy of his book to review, I jumped at the opportunity. And I am so glad that I did.
The book is called The Fit Executive (Fitness for Today's Busy Professionals). Here is the Dedication...
"This book is dedicated to the one billion businessmen and women around the world who think they do not have enough time to get fit. You do."
Frank completely understands that you do not have time to waste. And this is what makes this book so unique in its approach and such a very good resource.
Whenever I get my hands on a new book, I immediately go to the table of contents to find out how far into the book, the real gist of it is... I generally thumb through or quickly scan the initial introductory information and preamble to find the parts I picked up the book to read in the first place. Sometimes that is well into the 4th or 5th chapter. I greatly resent authors who pad their pages with information I couldn't care less about, just to make the book bigger.
Well, there is none of that fluff here. Only sound and valuable and straight-to-the-point information. It is an easy and concise read, and a very worthwhile one, at that. To quote one of my favorite characters, Detective Joe Friday, "Just the facts, Ma'am".
After a short introduction to the author's credentials, the main part of the book is divided into 4 parts:
1. Fitness Due Diligence
- why/how/how much
- fitting it in
- working out in the office/while travelling/in the airport
- sample routines
There it is in a nutshell. If you WANT more information and detail than is in the book, Frank has provided some links to his web site and also some smartphone QR code access as well. Very easy.
