90Second Fitness Solution - Fitness & Weight Loss by Pete Cerqua offers a program that anyone can do. It is simple, short (90 seconds) and he says it works!
I read the book a few years ago and promptly got 'hooked'. Who wouldn't want to get really fit in just 90 seconds a day?
This fitness program easy AND effective. . . simple, fast AND to my amazement it provides a complete workout ! It is the only fitness program that I use regularly. Oh, I have tried others but after a month or two I have given them up. But Pete Cerqua's program is so easy, so quick I can do it waiting from my coffee to be ready in the morning.
Pete Cerqua is a physical trainer with a fitness studio in New York City. If you know New York, you know that New Yorkers are busy; they want things to work fast. Many do not want to spend an hour working out at a gym.
Pete Cerqua says that after years of researching...reviewing every fitness workout program, he discovered that one particular kind of strength training offered the best results AND that doing just two specific exercises for 90 seconds on five days a week resulted in full body fitness. Fitness as good as long hours at the gym can produce.
Amazing? Yes, but he offers proof in the many persons he has helped. (Read his book 90 Second Fitness Solution and I think you will be convinced..)
After I read Pete's 90Second Fitness Solution. I tried the two exercises. In just a week I was saying, " Wow!" My energy energy improved by the second day! I found muscles relaxing that had not relaxed in ages. And I actually looked forward to doing these two exercises.
Still the 'proof' of any program is whether I stick with it. I have started more exercises programs than days in a week. But I tail off on them after just a month or two. Here is is 6 years later and I am still doing the 90Second Fitness Solution exercises. They are easy and quick so I can get them in at any time.
Pete Cerqua includes scientific studies in the 90 Second Fitness Solution book to show these methods do work.
Also, if you are concerned about your weight, Pete offers a very simple approach to eating that his clients say 'melts off pounds'. But losing weight was not the main point for me so I did not try that part of his program.
As I aged I had developed some flab. And I, like most persons over 60, I really want to stay independent. That means I need to retain strength and good balance.
One of the most important aspects of Pete's program is that prevents seniorfragility. Fragility,or weakness of muscles, is the bane of those over 60. It is fragility that can interfere with daily life. Half the people in nursing homes or assisted care facilities are there because of fragility....and for no other reason.The 90-Second Fitness Solution: The Most Time-Efficient Workout Ever for a Healthier, Stronger, Younger You
When arms or legs have become too weak do the necessary activities of daily life, that is a problem. We may need a cane, a walker or wheel chair but more importantly we need someone else to cook, clean and give help with other daily activities. That is a clear sign that a 'care facility' may be in the near future. The 90 Second Fitness Solution can remedy that.
Scientific studies show that people loses about 1% of muscle strength every year after age 35. By age 45 that is 10% of strength. 10% is not too noticeable. But by the time we are 65 we will lose 30% of our strength . That means it becomes more difficult to get out of a car, carry a bag of heavy groceries and do ALL the other activities of daily living. It can also mean that we do not have the strength (or balance because we lose balance at the same rate) to keep ourselves from falling if we trip or stumble.
The 90Second Fitness Solution by Pete Cerqua shows you how to prevent and even reverse age related fragility. This book is well worth owning. Just look at some of the reviews at Amazon.The 90-Second Fitness Solution: The Most Time-Efficient Workout Ever for a Healthier, Stronger, Younger You
