The accent isn't so bad!!

Any additional comments?

I almost passed up the audio version due to the comments about the accent of the narrator. I didn't find it to be a problem at all, and I'm from NC - so I'm usually sensitive to strong accents from the north! I found the narrator to have a mild accent that made her voice more interesting than annoying. Really great content, too! I just had to post about the narration.

Great book

What did you love best about No Sweat?

The book is so true and honest, it explains how we are supposed to exercise rather than how we have been convinced we need or should exercise in today's society based on new beliefs. I have read dozens and dozens of health, fitness, wellness books, and this one is right up there in the need to read. If you are struggling to understand why your hardcore beach body, CrossFit, a special workout plan is failing you should read this book.

Which character – as performed by Lyndsay Vitale – was your favorite?

The narrator is good.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I did.

Great read! It's working for me.

If you could sum up No Sweat in three words, what would they be?

I listen to the audio book nearly everyday when I workout for extra motivation.
It has been over 30th days since I started listening to this audio book, and I am still motivated and having fun. I have learn from this book, No Sweat, how to motivate myself to exercise everyday in the gym or at home at my own pace and on my own time. By following Dr. Segar's MAP method, I am also motivated to eat a sensible diet most days. I have lost 5 lbs in one month.The MAP info has helped me enjoy exercising again. I have started working out first thing in the morning. The MAP method is just what I needed to motivate myself to work toward my goals without struggling. Who knew a positive attitude toward exercise could cause one to exercise, enjoy it, and lose weight. Duh!

Great content

Probably better as a paper book rather than audio so you can do the exercises and re refer to helpful points. The reading is a little condescending at times and stories a little contrived but I found it great for reframing my approach to exercise

Good Principles, Grating Narration

What would have made No Sweat better?

Chiefly, a narrator with a inclination to stay in a lower pitch range.

Would you recommend No Sweat to your friends? Why or why not?

I would recommend a book/hardcopy. This production is a little hard to listen through.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

There was an almost teen-aged sing song quality to her pitch and pace which brought me out of the material an grated on my ears. There are plenty of female voices that actually do a generally better job of holding our human attentions.

Any additional comments?

The one thing that I "take away" for this one is that every bit of movement counts, instead of requiring that I need to achieve a threshold "workout" level. I think that this is valuable.

No sweat

The books theme is very repetitive and reminds me more of a self help book. Teaching you to take time for you and that diet is as important as exercise. Overall not a bad book but noting I would listen to again.

.

I loved the stories and the whole message behind her work, but everything in between was repeated multiple times and it was just too redundant. I was also not a fan of the reader
, too many mispronounced words and in some cases words said were supposed to be an entirely differnt one.

A refreshing new view

Would you listen to No Sweat again? Why?

I may listen to 'No Sweat' again, but I will definitely read the book. This is author has brought a new standpoint on fitness that I didn't consider myself.

What was one of the most memorable moments of No Sweat?

One the most memorable moments in this book is the take away that everything counts. Even if you're not 'in the zone', the idea that everything counts for me anyway is a building block to get to levels of activity that put you in the zone rather than do nothing.

How could the performance have been better?

The performance could've been better with a different narrator because there were times when some words were mispronounced and it took me out of the material momentarily.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Chapter 8 was where the book had the most impact for me, no spoilers, you'll just have to read or listen and see if it does the same for you.

Any additional comments?

This book would have received a higher review from me had the narrator not sounded like Meg Griffin from Family Guy. Every time I went to listen it would take me a few minutes to get over the voice and into the material. The beginning 1-2 chapters I could skipped the author shamelessly patting herself on the back about her accomplishments. Other than those 2 points, this book for me was quite good.

A Must Read !

Why is this a must read? I say this because the information in this book can be life changing. The concepts presented in this book can be applied to many areas in a person's life, not just physical fitness. Michelle explains the science of our behaviors. She goes well beyond explaining our behaviors and gets into very practical ways to change our behaviors for a lifetime. READ (or in this case LISTEN to) this book and you'll be happy you did!

Fabulous book!

What did you love best about No Sweat?

I loved the philosophy of this book. Just moving more and finding activity you enjoy makes so much sense and is such a compassionate approach to exercise. Her healthy approach to exercise really resonated with me and I have already made positive changes since I have read the book.
