The 12-Minute Total-Body Workout

by Joyce L. Vedral

Perhaps the most important aspect of this book is its ability to force you to keep your workout and diet up on vacation, on business trips, and when visiting , any time you're away from home. It shows you how to eat around the most impossible home, hotel or business menu. You can do the workout with no weights while traveling by just doing the moves and using the tension.
