The first chapter contains an overview of all elements and levels of fitness such as diet, exercise and stress management. Explains how and why we need to include in an exercise regime, specific techniques that will keep our heart strong, muscles toned and spine flexible. We can do this at home and can fit comfortably into our daily lifestyle. The information is basic, simplified and appropriate for the average readers' needs and skills.

Spine alignment, or posture, is the theme of the second chapter called The Miracle Exercise. This chapter is what makes this book so unique. The author explains and illustrates why, without proper posture, we can't be physically fit, as it influences our health and fitness level and every move we make.

The third chapter, called Shower Power, illustrates how the readers can include as many as eighteen simple but powerful stretching exercises while showering or after a shower with a towel. Each exercise is illustrated and can be even more effective when rhythmic breathing is included. It demonstrates how, when muscles are warm and resilient we can relax, realign and revitalize our body, preparing it for the day's activities. The book includes two meditation exercises that can be done lying down or sitting in a chair. As deep rhythmic breathing is not only used in meditation but makes every stretching exercise more powerful, the author uses imagery to describe how to deep breathe as an exercise. This book was written to help the reader understand that it's what we do consistently, as part of our lifestyle, that is the secret to successfully becoming fit and able to live a full and active life."

Straight talk and a simple, no-fail diet and exercise plan for those who think they don't have the money or time to lose weight Linda Fondren, one of 11 children born to a single mother in the poorest and fattest state in America, watched the consequences of obesity ruin her sister's life—and was moved to open a gym in her hometown of Vicksburg, Mississippi with the motto "positively reshaping women." Then, witnessing how many middle- and low-income Vicksburg residents were brought up short in their fitness and health efforts by limited budgets and time, Fondren responded by striking at the root problem. In 2009, she spearheaded Shape Up Vicksburg, a City Hall–supported program in which she convinced the local hospital to offer free health screenings, restaurants to create low-cal menu options, and Wal-Mart to host weigh-in stations. Fondren signed up 10 percent of Vicksburg's 25,000 residents, most of who were taking charge of their health and nutrition for the first time. They lost over 15,000 lbs. in just 17 weeks. Shape Up Sisters! is a get-healthy prescription for regular people with jobs, budgets, and real-life challenges. Here are tactics for sedentary readers to become physically active with advice, recipes, and meal plans for improving eating habits on a budget. Fondren wraps it all in her empowering personal story and the uplifting tales of women who have changed their lives by following her simple strategies. With Fondren's approachable personality and practical advice, Shape Up Sisters! is both an easy-to-use guide and a bold statement in the greater national narrative about improving health and weight loss across socioeconomic lines.
