Poor posture results in pain and ill health for a considerable part of the population. Only recently have people, and personal trainers, realised that improved posture can lead to enormous health and well-being benefits. Not to mention physical benefits: the average person can add half an inch to their height, 1 inch to their shoulder width and reduce their waistline by two-thirds of an inch purely by improving posture. The Complete Guide to Postural Training is the first book to take a systematic approach to improving posture, from initial postural assessment to a programme of corrective exercise. It is ideal for anyone who wishes to improve their posture, particularly those who wish to see health and fitness benefits or improved sporting performance. It will also prove invaluable to gym instructors and personal trainers who are dealing with increasing numbers of clients looking to improve posture and, at present, have no source of reference to work from.

A kettlebell is a weight that looks like a cannonball with a handle. Originating from Russia, kettlebell training is now a global phenomenon with clubs, gyms and individuals investing in equipment and training. Weights range from 4kg to 48kg. They differ from dumbbells and barbells in that the centre of mass is offset from the handle, so the weight constantly pulls against your hand, improving coordination and anaerobic fitness and strengthening your core muscles. Kettlebells can be used for a variety of purposes - from weight loss to strength training - by people with a range of fitness levels. Popular with celebrities such as Penelope Cruz and Sylvester Stallone, they are also used for training players at Chelsea and Liverpool football clubs, and in 2010 the British Army got on board when their PTI corp (responsible for the Army's physical training) signed up to a 30-day course designed and implemented by the author. The book includes information on the benefits of kettlebell training and how to use the equipment safely, and provides warm-ups, drills and training programmes for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. From buying a kettlebell to training for weight loss, it's a comprehensive guide to a popular new fitness tool.
