4-0 out of 5 stars This book really shines with it's postnatal exercise program
The book includes exercises for the entire 9 months of pregnancy plus a 5-month postnatal exercise plan. The exercises in this book are easily done at home with minimal equipment (some exercises require light hand weights.) There are plenty of photos (though not every exercise has a photo) and good explanations on how to do each exercise. I found the exercises challenging, but not too difficult to do. The prenatal exercises are good, but this book's strong point is the postnatal exercise section. You are virtually guaranteed to get your body back if you follow the plan! The book does a lot of name-dropping and tells about various celebrities and their experiences trying to keep fit during pregnancy. It's supposed to be encouraging, but I found it kind of annoying. This book is strictly about exercise. There are not a lot of pregnancy tips like you find in Denise Austin's pregnancy exercise book or physiological information (see Essential Exercises for the Childbearing Year). If your'e serious about getting back in shape after baby, then this book is worth serious consideration. ... Read more

    This was a pretty good book it had a lot of information. But I have seen some of the books out there, and this is not the best. I would reccomend this book, and if a teen trying to lose weight or get into better shape, I reccomend this book. ... Read more

    "Grabbing exercise when and where you can really does count," says Kathy Kaehler, fitness trainer of celebrities like Meg Ryan, Michelle Pfeiffer, Jennifer Aniston, and Claudia Schiffer. You've seen her dispensing fitness tips on the Today show and in several exercise videos. In Real-World Fitness, Kaehler presents sneaky ways to get your exercise while you're involved in your daily life. There's a lot of name-dropping in this book (with testimonials from Kaehler's celebrity clients) and tantalizing glimpses into the fitness habits and challenges of the stars. Schiffer, for example, was planning a workout video yet couldn't do three pushups when Kaehler met her. Pfeiffer used to be a two-pack-a-day smoker.

    Kaehler describes exercises that can be done with whatever you've got around the house: jumping over a garden hose, picking up toys, throwing snowballs, raking leaves. She presents a basic workout for the major muscle groups of the upper body using free weights and of the lower body requiring no equipment except a chair. Her "8 Weeks to a Show-off Body" is a progressive program suitable for motivated beginners, incorporating daily aerobics and strength training. She includes valuable information about goal setting, motivation, body image, weight loss, and the cumulative value of short bouts of exercise. --Joan Price ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful for Beginners
    If your New Year's resolution was to start exercising but you have no idea where to start, Real-World Fitness is worth checking out. This book is a great starting place for someone new to the world of fitness like me. If you are an experienced exerciser, you're bound to find some great ideas in here, but some might be a bit basic. The theme of the book is that a little exercise is better than none at all and once you get started, you'll find it easy to continue.

    +The only equipment needed are walking shoes, and maybe some small hand weights.
    +Kaehler writes in a very unintimidating tone.
    +Sections are included on healthy eating, target exercises (legs, abs, glutes, etc.), and benefits of exercise.
    +The final section, "8 Weeks to a Show-Off Body," is a great plan for the motivated beginner that can easily be followed after the 8 weeks is over.

    -As mentioned in other reviews, the constant celebrity name dropping is unfathomably annoying. So much so that you might want to look elsewhere if that sort of stuff bothers you. But if you can look past it, this book is a goldmine for the beginnner.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Ordinary Items, Extraordinary Results
    Kathy Kaehler makes staying in shape practical...not fun...but practical. Use ordinary household items to turn your soft body hard. At times it reads a bit like the Star or Enquirer's guide to fitness, but having said works. Besides, selling yourself on the idea of a consistent excercise routine, is the first step to a beautiful hard body. So Michelle smoked and Schiffer couldn't do three push-ups, we still want to look like them, so we read the book and get results. This book is worth every penny. In fact, I would have given it five stars, but felt this was unethical as I haven't read this book, but I plan to next Wednesday. Good Luck and all the best to you aspiring excercisers...julia young.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners...
    I have been a fan of Kathy Kaehler for a while, so I was very excited to see this book. I was a bit disappointed because it was very basic. I did find a couple of new exercises that I have incorporated into my regular workouts. I was annoyed by the way that she throws around the names of all the celebrities that she trains. The pictures and directions make the exercises very easy to follow. Overall, I would recommed this book for beginners but not for advanced exercisers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Tips for the REAL WORLD
    This book is packed full of exercises you can sneak in here and there. The card trick is amazing! Also, a section dedicated to helping a certain body part is super helpful. The wire binding is a necessity for a workout book--you can place it flat on the floor or counter when going through exercises. VERY happy with this purchase--have had it for quite a while.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Well laid out book
    I found Kaehler's book to be a great overall fitness book and fairly motivating. She gives good logical advice and doesn't accept reasons for not exersizing. The thing that drives me the "craziest" about the book is the name-dropping. I believe she overuses the names of her clients and generally pumps her status up a bit. Other than that it's a good buy. Visually interesting, good clean examples and great techniques. Worth the $. Good luck! T. Heerwig ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Only SIX WEEKS into "primetime," baby!
    The main thing I like is that it is a SIX-WEEK program!

    As a bonus, in here we get the equivalent of a personal workout without expensive or fancy equipment.

    The Hollywood stuff just adds to the interest to help keep up the motivation.

    5-0 out of 5 stars She got me exercisiing
    I enjoyed reading this book, and the 6 week program takes you from begiinner to knowing you can do this. I had done the program for 3 weeks in a row, hardly missing a day until my life got so busy. I felt stronger in those 3 weeks than I have in years. I have three girls to run after and I did feel more energy, and flexibility. I plan to continue my exercises with her and I ordered her Real World Fitness book as well. Don't dish her for using the celebrity's names. We all want to look a little like them, so lets read about them.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Nothing special in here.
    A perfectly fine safe exercise program. There is nothing special in here, but there are no false claims (except for the implication that you can look like a star) either. I too found the style of the book to be corny. There is no diet information at all. Personally, I would recommend Denise Austins "Jumpstart". That has an easy to follow diet plan, a decent exercise plan (for beginners only), and her encouraging thoughts of the day.

    3-0 out of 5 stars The exercises are good, but same as her video
    I already had the Target and Tone video by Kathy Kaehler (and I absolutely love it!) and I ordered this book to have something to alternate with by her. The book, though, is almost entirely the same exercises as the that video tape. The "Hollywood" format with stories of celebrities is cute but corny and doesn't seem to inspire. I don't seem to remember Claudia Schiffer or Michelle Pfeiffer having to lose weight (or an substantial amount of weight), but they are used as examples of dedication. Who among the "real world" will rise at 4:30 a.m. to exercise? Anyway, if you have her T & T video, skip this book. If you need a good, safe routine to start with from scratch, it's $12 or so well spent.

    Advanced exercisers would be bored. ... Read more
