Make it Part of Your Plan, September 29, 2008
By T. A. Deckebach (Glenside, PA)

"As an elementary educator and parent of a young teenager, I am very interested in the factors that contribute to the health and well-being of young people. Brzycki and Fornicola have created a handbook that is appropriate for parents, educators, coaches and teens themselves. The authors provide an excellent balance of background information (with sections like "What is Fitness?" and "Poor Nutrition = Poor Health") and true "action planning", as the title suggests. There are clear directions for simple exercises (with accompanying photos), sample workout schedules, and tips for weight management.
I'm thrilled to have purchased such a helpful book for my son. I also bought a copy for my daughter's elementary school and my son's track coach. There are so few quality resources on this topic, it's a must for any adult who cares about youth fitness."

Another Winner, September 26, 2008
By Steve Bibbo (Forked River, NJ USA)

"This is the second book by these two that I have and they certainly don't suffer from the sophomore jinx. Normally, books aimed at child fitness ether come across as too "preachy" or way too technical. This is a very good blend an simple and straight-forward concepts for children and their parents to follow. I can't wait for their next collaboration."

What America needs..., September 24, 2008
By Tom Kelso (St. Louis) - See all my reviews

"Wow! This book is exactly what America needs! Child obesity rates rising, declining scholastic physical education programs and outright laziness permeating our Country's youth. Simple guidelines to get our FUTURE leaders off their butts, moving and actually enjoying physical exercise. Way to go, Matt and Fred!"
