The Poor Man's Gym will show you great ways to motivate yourself to get in shape, show you why most diets fail, and show you why a lot of people psyche themselves out and quit. If you're not motivated, you won't stick with it. It will show you a basic work out and how you can use this motivation technique to make any workout work. There are a lot of workout books out there, and most of them show you good workouts, but they often ignore the most important part: how to get past your mind. If you don't stick with it, you will never change. In other words, look in the mirror, because that is exactly what you will look like the rest of your life. If that's okay with you, there's nothing wrong with that. If you're not happy with it...then what are you going to do about it?
