"For those who would rather die than do leglifts to a Whitney Houston soundtrack, here's the ultimate alternative."

Synopsis

"For those who would rather die than do leglifts to a Whitney Houston soundtrack, here's the ultimate alternative. "-Boston Magazine. * Would you flee in terror if confronted with a room full of sweaty people in spandex thongs?* Are you not immune to the occasional Van Halen-style air guitar jump?* Have you been known to push aside your coffee table and dance like crazy in your living room?If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, here at last is your workout book. As simple as throwing on that old Ramones (or even White Stripes) record, punk meets a high- and low-impact workout in an exercise craze that is spreading like wildfire amongst teens and aging rockers alike: Punk Rock Aerobics. Unlikely bedfellows though they seem, punk has always been about image-from Iggy's abs to the Sex Pistols' carefully cultivated outfits. Back in the good old days cigarettes would suffice to keep rockers slim, but to have real punk energy, say these rockers-turned-certified- aerobics-instructors, you need to drop those chips and get off the couch.

Chock-full of easy-to-follow moves in an accessible, home-exercise-friendly format, Punk Rock Aerobics contains photos and instructions for DIY, heart-pumping (and thigh-slimming) retro moves like the "Air Guitar," the "Skank," and the "Fire Hydrant," while suggesting songs by the Sex Pistols, Blondie, and the Stooges for a perfect workout soundtrack. With sidebars and Q&A's with rockers like J. Mascis and Evan Dando, this is definitely "not your mom's aerobics class" (Boston Globe).

5.0 von 5 Sternen I love it! 6. Januar 2004
Von Lynne C - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a funny, well written book. The exercise advice is sound. I've been a gym-goer on and off most of my life, and steadily for the past two and a half years. I love the bricks for weightlifting. I'm going to stick with dumbbells, but that's mostly because bricks are too light for me now.
I have to take an mp3 player to the gym so that I can do cardio to Siouxsie & the Banshees and the Replacements. How cool it must be to have a whole class of dancing to the Ramones and Television! I'm dying to start my own class, although I'm not sure the attendance will be very high in the deep south.
And if you buy this book for no other reason, J Mascis demonstrating one of the butt exercises is worth the price. Buy this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Exercise Rocks! 22. März 2004
Von "vc12" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is "fists in the air" all the way! Hilken and Maura perfectly depict the "rock-on" mindset we all need to spur and motivate ourselves into working out to feel our best. The concept is phenomenal: having so much fun you don't realize you are exercising! The photos complement the easy-to-follow exercise instructions for a high intensity workout. Love all the background information as well, and the outfits say punk is here to stay --- Can't wait for the video!

5.0 von 5 Sternen For the anti-gym bunny in all of us... 17. März 2004
Von vickys - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Traditional aerobics classes annoyed and intimidated me. The thought of being surrounded by gym bunny types while listening to bad music for an hour or so horrified me. Then came PRA. I *heart* PRA. It's weird and fun and kicks your ass everytime in a good way.
While there's nothing like going to a real PRA class, the book does a good job of demonstrating the moves used in class. The stories and pictures in the book are hilarious too. More importantly, the sound exercise advice they give is realistic. They don't expect you to become a hardbody, but they do encourage you to get moving in your own way. Can't get more DIY than that.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Probably the coolest fitness book ever written... 14. Februar 2004
Von Dee Dee Remote - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
...and undoubtedly the funniest. I've heard about these chicks for a while and couldn't resist impulse-buying this when I first spotted it. The humor/rock & roll factor caused the initial purchase, but I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be well-written and "unputdownable" until finished. Sound exercise advice, moving personal stories, side-splitting hilarity, super-cool music suggestions, killer layout and photography--it's got just about everything the rock & roll fitness freak could want. I also dig the page of "hate mail" the gals received from clueless punk nazis who just don't get it. I've got only one minor gripe myself...the gals wisely advise against working out in Doc Martens or Chuck Taylors, but then are shown wearing Chucks and Keds skippies in some of the exercise photos. Clearly it was done just for fun--you're not meant to work out in the wacky outfits they're sporting, unless you really want to--but still, this was a contradictory display. Nevertheless, the photos alone are worth the price of the book--the facial expressions and overall unintimidating d.i.y. attitude are totally fun and refreshing. Now, what would really be cool is a companion exercise video! Music licensing fees would probably prohibit this, but a gal can dream.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Attitude, Killer Music, Fun Moves 16. März 2004
Von "macmayflower" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a totally enjoyable book. The music is 'core, and the exercise stuff is perfect for the impatient and out-of-shape. Check out the photos. They show off easy moves that even a spazz (like me) can do, but they are also HILARIOUS (go ahead, try and find ONE straight face). "Punk Rock Aerobics" screams FREEDOM, from health clubs, from annoying money-beat dance grooves, but mostly from your own heaving lungs and lazy ass. These sisters ROCK!
