Kathy Smith's Lift Weights to Lose Weight
by Kathy Smith with Robert Miller

Fitness icon Kathy Smith has a persona that's smart, down-to-earth and full of warmth. So when she says it's time to change the fitness focus from cardio (which has been her specialty for the past two decades) to weight training, you believe her. Smith knows her stuff - research shows that weight training is a great tool to stay fit and active for the longterm, and that increasing muscle mass is the best way to burn more calories. This book, which is as friendly and practical as its author, is a great introduction to weight training, written especially with women in mind.

Thankfully, Smith addresses a lot of issues that concern women when it comes to weights - she doesn't pooh-pooh the worry that weights will bulk up muscles too much (she confesses that it can be a problem for some women, but also explains how to avoid it). And she not only gives you the pros and cons of having a gym membership versus working out at home, she also tells you how to set up a home gym inexpensively. Smith shows you basics exercises for all body parts, with free weight and machine options. The book also includes a 12-week training log to get you off to a good start, and a very simple and effective eating plan.

What makes this book special, however, is Smith herself. She is a truly supportive, motivating force and her encouragement makes you really want to pick up some dumbbells. It's almost like having this really incredible friend helping you along. If you're a woman and new to weight training, Smith will definitely start you in the right direction.
