The 411 by Maria:
OK, I am not one who usually likes to workout with the help of a book preferring DVDs over photos but this book has some great exercises.

I have spent the past 2 weeks doing many of the "Level Easy" belly exercises and while miracles are not what I am looking for, I feel so much better. Usually I wake very stiff and it takes a while for the body to move fluidly. Since starting this, my mornings are much easier.

I spent about 25 minutes doing Standing Fire Wash, Woodchopper, Standing Bicycle and Cat Balance along with some core yoga stretches and really believe this could change my life. 

Many years ago I was much more active. Over the past 10 years life has become more sitting than moving and I while I bounce into active mode throughout the year, it is NEVER consistent. These exercises are not only great for my belly but for my back as well. Strengthen the core and everything will be well. I totally believe it.
