THE 8 SECOND SECRET by Gail  Trapp


The Scientifically Proven Method for Lasting Weight Loss
Email this review


An Australia-based exercise physiologist with a background in aerobics instruction provides insight into the ways that weight loss, relaxation and fitness goals can be achieved simultaneously—and in a jiffy.

Trapp reveals how individuals seeking to show off a slimmer and more toned physique can do so by devoting mere minutes out of their day to exercise and by altering their eating habits. Using colorful language and situational humor, the author illustrates how the incorporation of daily exercise, nourishing and balanced meals and limiting the amount of time spent noshing on goodies in front of the TV will lead to weight loss, weight management and a fit lifestyle. Though hardly revolutionary, Trapp’s toolkit is well-adapted for modern women with little time to spare. The strongest component is the author’s LifeSprints exercise program, which she developed in contrast to fitness regimes relying upon moderate-intensity workouts. She opted instead for shorter, high-intensity workouts—think spinning without the bike. In addition to clearly illustrated fitness and strength-training routines, Trapp’s volume is chockfull of wholesome Med-Asian recipes sure to have mouths watering by the end of the chapter.

Speedy and efficient weight-loss tips for readers on the go.
