A sports nutrition company, now owned by Abbott, has been sponsoring twelve-week fitness challenges with cash prizes since 1997, along with hosting events, blogs, and online support communities. This unabridged audio guide offers detailed advice about weight-training regimens, eating routines, cardiovascular strategies, and lifestyle tools to keep track of health habits and progress as well as printable checklists, food lists, and exercises. Narrator Michelle Lee, news anchor and 2004 Body-for-Life Champion, doesn't sound genuinely connected to this state-of-the-art, if rather mechanical, guide. She handles the technical side of the narrator's task with perfect diction and attention to sentence structure. But the forced emotional quality of her reading doesn't do much for writing that has a committee-driven quality. T.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
