Publisher's Summary

Now you can get a personal trainer to work out with you whenever and wherever you want for less than the cost of a new pair of shorts! In his best-selling The Abs Diet, David Zinczenko, editor-in-chief of Men's Health, developed a plan to boost your metabolism, flatten your stomach, and keep you lean for life. The Abs Diet Personal Trainer coaches the listener through a total body workout using The Abs Diet exercise plan. Use it at home, in the gym, or when you're on the road.

The Abs Diet workout is the easiest, most effective plan ever. At each level (beginner, intermediate, and advanced), the personal trainer leads you through 35-minute strengthening and resistance training sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, with shorter routines on Saturdays. Led by health and fitness guru Owen McKibben, this cutting-edge workout includes squats, bench presses, leg curls, lunges, and of course, crunches, to burn calories, sculpt your body, and rev up your metabolism.

Look better and feel better today with The Abs Diet Personal Trainer!

In addition to having your personal trainer walk you through the steps of the workout, use these illustrations to make sure you're doing the exercises properly.

Don't miss The Abs Diet to learn about the nutrition component of this successful health plan. You can also download The Abs Diet Meal Plan, including recipes.

Excellent workout

This is an excellent workout program for both beginners and people like me who have spent quite a few hours in the gym. By following the routines at the pace trainer Owen McKibben set out I got a great workout within a half hour. While this program is really designed for people with access to a gym, you can modify the moves if all you have are a pair of dumbbells at home. My one concern is that there is little to no stretching exercises as part of the routine. It would have been worth the extra five minutes to make us go through a good stretch routine before and after the workouts.

I should note that while women would appreciate this workout, it's really geared toward men. It's clear, no-nonsense and effective.

I work out on a regular basis (4-5 days per week). I like to lift weights, but am not a fan of cardio. I have never been able to stay on a program that will burn fat, and I never can motivate myself to do a lot of abs. This program is great; it mixes up the workouts and keeps your body guessing day after day. Within about two months, I noticed a dramatic difference in my body and overall fitness level. I would have considered myself to be in pretty good shape prior to this audiobook, but after completing this course I wasn't even close to my potential.

Just what I needed

If you know your way around the gym, then you may not need this trainer, but I did. Sure, I understand how to operate the equipment, but beyond that, I don't know what I'm doing at the gym. By loading this book on my iPod, I could confidently stroll around the machines, pump out my circuit and for the first time, look like I actually belong there ... like I know what I'm doing.

It's only been 2 weeks, so I can't say I have abs of steel, but I have lost 4 lbs so far on the Abs diet. The real benefit of this plan is that <b><font color=darkgreen>I now look forward to working out</font></b> ... something I've never felt before. For that alone, I give this book the top rating!

Probably not a necessary purchase.

The Abs diet audio is good enough. Basically this audio is a guy naming an exercise then counting reps for you.

This has been a great workout companion, a great resource. Note there are a few errors that can be a bit annoying - like a skipped set of leg extentions, etc. but by the time you get to the spot you know the workout well and its not a big issue.

overall a very good listen, instructional and motivating

Love it!!!

I go to the gym a lot and don't know what to do or what machines to use. Nowadays Personal Trainers are so expensive but this is just like having one to guides me through the process. It also keeps me on track and I love it. I had to tell all of my friends about this.
