The Population of the United Kingdom has now reached 67 million. 40% (approximately 27 million) are not classed as ’physically active’. This is a shocking statistic and it is getting worse. The decline in physical activity starts at around 24 years and it is all downhill from there! The ’unique’ fifteen minute plan means that anyone from 18 - 80 can quickly reach their optimum fitness level in just 15 minutes a day. They can then maintain their level by exercising just 3 times a week. The plan is based on The Royal Canadian Air Force BX Plan and has been the core source of fitness in the Canadian Airforce for over 50years. No special equipment is needed: all of the exercises are ’free form’ and can be done at home, in the office or out and about if you travel in your work. There is no need to join a gym so there are no fees to pay. No group memberships although the plans are really good for families and groups of friends. The system is graded so to start with the exercises are quite simple and gentle. You move on to the second set of exercises at your own pace. All of the exercises are illustrated and there are charts to help you plot your progress. Easy steps to get you fit and keep you fit in less time than it probably takes to drive to the gym. Fully illustrated, and with integral progress charts, fitness can be fun. With a minimum amount of space and no costs the Need2Know Plan is ideal for anyone from 18 - 80.

The author of Why We Buy reports on the growing importance of women in everybody's marketplace--what makes a package, product, space, or service "female friendly." He offers a tour of the world's marketplace--with shrewd observations and practical applications to help everybody adapt to the new realities. Underhill examines how a woman's role as homemaker has evolved into homeowner; how the home gym and home office are linked to the women's health movement and home-based businesses; why the refrigerator has trumped the stove as the crucial appliance; why some malls are succeeding while others fail. "The point is," writes Underhill, "while men were busy doing other things, women were becoming a major social, cultural, and economic force." And, as he warns, no business can afford to ignore their power and presence--From publisher description.
