Publisher's Summary

Michael Matthews' number one best-selling women's fitness book with over 250,000 copies sold. If you want to be toned, lean, and strong as quickly as possible without crash dieting, "good genetics", or wasting ridiculous amounts of time in the gym and money on pills and powders... regardless of your age... then you want to listen to this book. Building lean muscle and burning fat isn't as complicated as the fitness industry wants you to believe. This book is the shortcut.

You don't need to: starve yourself with very-low-calorie diets to lose stubborn hip, belly, and thigh fat and keep it off.
You don't need to: constantly change up your weightlifting exercises to have muscle definition. Getting toned is much simpler than that.
You don't need to: spend hundreds of dollars per month on worthless workout supplements, "cleanses," or fat loss pills.
You don't need to: grind out hours of boring cardio to shed ugly belly fat and get a lean core. You don’t HAVE to do any cardio, actually.
You don't need to: obsess over "clean eating" and avoid "unhealthy" foods to get fit. Flexible dieting is the real “secret” of effective fitness nutrition.
Those are just a few of the harmful lies and myths that keep women from ever achieving the lean, toned, strong, and healthy bodies they truly desire. And in this book you're going to learn something most women will never know... The exact formula of exercise and eating that makes losing 10 to 15 pounds of fat while building lean, sexy muscle a breeze…and it only takes 8-12 weeks. Here are just a few of the things you're going to learn in this book:  

The five biggest fat loss myths & mistakes that keep women overweight, frustrated, and confused.​
How to build lean muscle, lose fat, and get healthy without ever feeling starved, deprived, or like you’re “on a diet”.
An all-in-one training system that delivers MAXIMUM results for your efforts, helping you get those lean, sexy curves in all the right places...spending no more than 3 to 6 hours in the gym every week...doing workouts that energize you, not wipe you out.
A no-BS guide to supplements that will teach you what works and what doesn't, and save you hundreds if not THOUSANDS of dollars each year.
How to master the "inner game of fitness" and develop the self-discipline and willpower it takes to build the body of your dreams (and actually enjoy the process).
The three simple laws of muscle growth that, when applied, literally force your body to get stronger and more sculpted.
How to get abs while still indulging in the "cheat foods" that you love every week like pasta, pizza, and ice cream.
And a whole lot more!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Written and Read for a Man not a Woman

Would you try another book from Michael Matthews and/or Jeff Justus?


If you’ve listened to books by Michael Matthews before, how does this one compare?

I have not but, this one was good

Which character – as performed by Jeff Justus – was your favorite?

Jeff Justus read this like he was talking to a twenty something man, not a woman. It felt like what "Maxim" magazine would sound like on audio. Don't you want, strong, sexy, hot, and awesome hotness, lean, sexy, hotness? Well, I am going to tell you how to sexy up your work out... Something like that.

Do you think Thinner Leaner Stronger needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. This book provides a fundamental concept of resistance training and proper diet and supplements. This is definitely very sound advice. The production just doesn't work for me.

Any additional comments?

There is nothing particularly new in this book but, it is sound advice. The book definitely sounds like it was written for a man though. Perhaps the narrator is simply trying to "sexy" it too much but, this definitely sounds like it was written for a man, not a woman

"The Ultimate Female Body", but uses male examples

What disappointed you about Thinner Leaner Stronger?

I'm upset that this book was supposed to focus on "The Ultimate Female Body", but uses examples of 250 pound men trying to maintain below 8% bodyfat. These examples don't give me what I thought I was listening to - a book focused on women. And these examples cannot translate to the female figure! False advertising -- he's just reusing chapters of his male-focused book in order to sell to a different demographic. It feels cheap.

What could Michael Matthews have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

He could have kept to the promise of a book about the Female Body and used exclusively female examples!

Probably best to not get it as audio as I could have done with some of the information written down for me and to keep having to rewind the audio is more than annoying. Also the guy who narrates it can't always say his 'W's properly and pronounces it like the way Stewie says 'coolwhip' in Family Guy. But overall great book!

So good I had to buy a hard copy because it's full of AMAZING information you want to keep referring back to, so just making clips doesn't help, you need to:
Listen to it to absorb everything
Then buy the hard copy and highlight all the parts u will to refer back to in your fitness journey.

Awesome fitness book

A great no-nonsense guide to health & fitness. Stresses hard work, discipline and proper techniques over quick fixes that aren't sustainable.
