You Are Your Own Gym: The Bible of Bodyweight Exercises reviewYou Are Your Own Gym: The Bible of Bodyweight Exercises is a fitness book and plan created by elite Special Operations physical trainer, Mark Lauren. During his career as a professional Special Operations military forces trainer, Lauren has prepared close to 1,000 soldiers. His You Are Your Own Gym plan combines his motivation techniques, expert training and nutrition advice. In his book, he shares his secret to his effective regimen that requires nothing more than simple exercises that rely on the resistance of your own bodyweight to reach the peak of your fitness so you can look better than you ever have before.

The promise is that by just working out for 30 minutes a day, four times a week, you’ll see rapid results. His exercises will supposedly lead to more fat burning than aerobics and build more metabolism-enhancing muscle than weightlifting. Lauren claims his exercises are safer than both aerobics and weightlifting because his bodyweight exercises develop stability and balanced and – in so doing – help to prevent injuries.

You Are Your Own Gym has four workout levels from which you can choose: Basic, 1st Class, Master Class and Chief Class. In addition to choosing your workout level, there are clear and detailed illustrated instructions for 125 exercises. These exercises will work every muscle in your body, from your neck to your ankles.

As the name of this fitness plan states: “You are your own gym.” In other words, you don’t need to head to a gym to get in shape. With your own body, you have all the weight lifting and fat burning tools you need. This is one of the major benefits of the program. It is inexpensive because you don’t require a gym membership or any special weights or others tools or gadgets to get the workout it promises.

Furthermore, you can perform the exercises in a variety of locations as long as you have adequate space (and you won’t need much). This plan gives you the freedom and convenience to exercise just about anywhere. Whether you want to exercise in your living room, bedroom, garage, yard, office, hotel room or wherever else you choose, you can!

While there is nothing wrong with picking up a copy of “You Are Your Own Gym: The Bible of Bodyweight Exercises” and finding out for yourself with this fitness program is all about, you are strongly encouraged to speak with your healthcare provider before incorporating this plan into your lifestyle to make sure it is the right fit for you.
