This book is a godsend. Because of Covid I’ve not been able to go to my usual classes. I was feeling a bit unfit but not sure what to do about it. Then I read Get Fit and Enjoy It. It is exactly what I needed. I like Tracy Griffen’s approach, it is accessible and engaging without being patronising. She offers clear and easy-to-follow instructions ( with photos) for exercises which can all be done in your own home. She is by profession a personal trainer with 15 years of experience behind her, so she knows her stuff. At first I was worried that a not-particularly-fit person like myself wouldn’t be able to do the exercises. But I managed fine – at the easy level, of course, but it’s early days! I’m so pleased. I’ve set myself some simple goals and a doable fitness routine and I’m really looking forward to getting fit!
Invaluable for normal people!

Clear, simple and well illustrated, this second book by Australian-born but Scottish-based Personal Trainer Tracy Griffen is invaluable as a straightforward guide to effective exercise and fitness for anyone, not just gym-bunnies. No fancy equipment is needed but there are some exercises shown for those with, for example, a Swiss ball or hand weights. There’s even some exercises you can do during a walk in the park. Tracy writes in a relaxed and informed manner and the content is easy to read and apply. Having enjoyed her previous “Healthy Living Yearbook” I was looking forward to this new one and was not disappointed. Recommended.
Common sense approach

I like Tracy’s common sense approach to exercise. This book is perfect if you want to get fit, but don’t fancy going to a gym. It’s especially relevant in these COVID times when we are spending much more time at home. I can highly recommend it
