Get a complete workout, anytime, anywhere, with the secrets of isometrics
Millions of people can’t seem to find the time to exercise. Now they can with The Complete Book of Isometrics. Fitness expert Erin O’Driscoll has compiled the best isometric exercises that can be done in the office, at home watching TV, flying in an airplane, or even driving a car—no equipment required.
