Item description for The Best Friends' Guide to Getting Fit (Capital Ideas) by Kim Murphy and Kris Carpenter...
Girlfriends! Connect. Move. Transform."The Best Friends' Guide to Getting Fit" is an inspirational book that presents a new way to achieve lifetime fitness through the power of friendship--taking the idea of workout partners to a whole different level. Kim and Kris' philosophy is that friendship can provide the incentive, time after time, to get up and out the door to meet for a workout. The consistency of such a routine and the chance to nurture a friendship daily, leads to dramatic results in all areas of a woman's life--physical, mental, and spiritual.
Their book lays out concrete ways for a woman to embark on her own fitness journey; to select a friend with whom to partner; choose the right activities to pursue; establish a routine; cultivate the friendship; overcome obstacles (like illnesses, injuries, and boredom); try new activities; set and achieve goals together; develop greater discipline; and recognize the many signs of improving fitness. Each chapter combines Kim's and Kris' own fitness success story with practical tips, structure, and advice for making major life changes.

Friendship and Fitness: A Guide for Making it Work Jul 18, 2005
Loved the book--so well thought out, formulated and written. Kim and Kris (with their personal comments/experiences) have made it clear that they were novices when they began walking together. The natural progression they made over the years makes this book extremely realistic for anyone to set goals and, through friendship, to adhere to these goals no matter what the exercise/activity level. The bonus is forming a true bond with a friend and becoming fit in body and soul. This book outlines an inspiring structure to make all this happen.

The Best Friends' Guide to Getting Fit May 25, 2005
What an insirational read!! This book not only gives you step-by-step instuctions as to how to begin and maintain a fitness program, but it also describes the journey of two remarkable women - their struggles, triumphs, and inspirational anecdotes. I highly recommend this book to women of all ages - young, older, or in between. You will certainly connect with their experiences and draw strength from their lessons learned. I am well on my way to acheiving my own personal goals and couldn't have done it without the support and commaraderie of a friend - a "must" according Kris and Kim. This book is a key to fitness success!!
I love this book! May 19, 2005
I love this book! It's highly motivating and inspirational for all women, especially those thinking being fit is out of reach. I found it be an honest and realistic story about the journey to fitness. It's not about perfection, which is so refreshing in this day and age of quick fixes and impossible standards. You can hear the enthusiasm in their voices when they talk about how being fit has transformed their lives and how it's possible for all of us to do the same! Plus, these best friends cover it all for us from how to start, what to wear, what to expect, and how to take it to the next level. A truly wonderful book!
