ESCAPE YOUR SHAPE makes an incredible promise to readers - that you can reduce problem areas and develop the body you want in a remarkably short period of time. The key is identifying your body type and working out according to a programme that takes this into account. Edward Jackowski is widely recognized as the first and only fitness expert to create fitness programmes tailored to the four basic body types he calls: Hourglass, Cone, Spoon and Ruler. ESCAPE YOUR SHAPE begins by helping readers identify which one applies to them. It goes on to detail four different work out programmes with variations to accomodate physical contraints such as back or joint injuries. Readers who struggle every day with exercise thinking their bodies cannot change, who believe genetics control their physical destiny, take hope! Anyone - no matter what their shape, no matter what their height, weight, or current level of fitness, can improve their body dramatically by exercising properly for their body type.
