Paul Scott very elegantly summarizes how and why to train based on natural movements the body actually makes in sports and outdoor activities. This book confirmed a lot of ideas I already suspected. It is straightforward and includes a practical plan. I'm buying a copy as the basis for a new training plan. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393059715, Paperback)

With this unique guide, overall fitness is truly an attainable goal—and is necessary to avoid injury and intensify enjoyment of any outdoor activity.

With road-tested common sense and real-world effectiveness, award winning author Paul Scott offers a complete program for giving yourself the kind of baseline level of fitness that will equip you to stay healthy and to reach your full potential—whatever your sport or passion. Outside Fitness embraces the notion that human beings are hard-wired for play and adventure, and any fitness quest that doesn't address the drive to embrace challenging exploration and stimulating variety is simply too utilitarian and ultimately too dull to be effective. The key is to be fit enough to have fun and to have fun getting fit. Along with having fun, the Outside Fitness program will help you develop endurance, power, agility, flexibility, and balance. You'll get the what-for on nutrition and a sustainable program to carry you forward. Fitness will become a personal adventure rather than a daily act of obligation. Outside Fitness draws on the most recent research in exercise physiology with a friendly tone and unique and fun graphic illustrations. Paul Scott's series of Outside magazine articles out of which this book has emerged won a National Magazine Award. Full-color illustrations throughout
