    1. This book is a most helpful book for those who wish to know what the Catholic Faith thinks of the culture of healthy living and where the points of contact and pitfalls maybe in the larger secular culture. The book does a superb job of using the 4 Cardinal Virtues [Prudence - Temperance - Fortitude - Justice] throughout most of the book, giving some theological insights through. In the Virtue of Fortitude, the author proposes Anaerobic and Aerobic insights that are quite helpful and liberating. [...]

    2. The author is an expert in fitness and his common sense/ Christian approach to staying in shape and being fit is refreshing after all the craze diets promising extreme weight loss and such. He calls upon Greek philosophers, St Thomas Aquinas, St. Paul, and others. The book describes in detail a workout regimen that is time efficient and effective.

The advice given on strength training, aerobics and good nutrition is fairly up to date and he does not seem to go overboard in any one direction [...]

    4. Good reaffirmation of fitness basics. The quotes from saints and Greek philosophers were an interesting way of tying together the tips and encouraging truly all around health.
