About this book
"I want you to spill your guts -- dreams and fears, successes and failures -- before you spill them on the training floor. You probably have many questions about how to better your body, your mind, and your future; so if you're ready to listen, I have the answers!" -- From the introduction to Get Strong! Now is the time to become the guy that you have always wanted to be! Get Strong! is the first guide to not only getting in shape, but also getting your life in gear. Fitness motivator Jake Steinfeld, better known to the world as "Body by Jake," helps you learn the basic steps to a more confident, more powerful, and healthier life. From bicep curls to life evaluations, Jake takes a whole new look at how to make it through your teenage years, and not just as another peg on the totem pole, but as the Big Man on Campus. Chock-full of real-life tales from Jake's own youth and descriptions and illustrations of exercises to get yourself in shape, Get Strong! is the plan you need to become strong and confident. So get off your buttissimo and get down to business, because as Jake says, "I want you to build the most impressive physique that you thought possible with this book, but I also want you to build an impressive future." By following the steps outlined in Get Strong!, you will achieve just that. A portion of the proceeds of Get Strong! will go to the Don't Quit! Foundation.

About this book
THIS TIME TOGETHER is 100 percent Carol Burnett – funny, irreverent, and irresistible.  Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won twenty-five Emmys in its remarkable eleven-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another – reading it feels like sitting down with an old friend who has wonderful tales to tell.  In engaging anecdotes, Carol discusses her remarkable friendships with stars such at Jimmy Stewart, Lucille Ball, Cary Grant, and Julie Andrews; the background behind famous scenes, like the moment she swept down the stairs in her curtain-rod dress in the legendary “Went With the Wind” skit; and things that would happen only to Carol – the prank with Julie Andrews that went wrong in front of the First Lady; the famous Tarzan Yell that saved her during a mugging; and the time she faked a wooden leg to get served in a famous ice cream emporium. This poignant look back allows us to cry with the actress during her sorrows, rejoice in her successes, and finally, always, to laugh.From the Hardcover edition.

    Versatile & compact, but with some caveats

    After unpacking the box, the setup was reasonably straightforward and required no tools. The setup instructions were adequate, but I would have liked to see more, and larger, pictures. Line drawings would have been clearer. Also, the instructions don't mention that you should install the Tower 200 on the side of the door opposite of the way it opens (e.g. if the door swings out, install it on the inside). If you don't, all the stress from pulling on the gym will transfer to the door's latch and hinges, which is probably a bad idea. Maybe that's obvious, but I didn't realize it until I was almost done installing the gym on the wrong side.The metal brackets that contact the door have insufficient padding, and may scuff up your door. I added some stick-on rubber bumpers to avoid this. The brackets are wide enough to accommodate a thick door, up to approx. 2 in. (5 cm).

    Good product, good price.

    0 4/5 Judo Jeff "J." (U.S.A) - See all my reviews This review is from: Body By Jake Tower 200 Full-Body Exercise Gym (Sports) I bought this item with little knowledge of it. I had read mixed reviews of it on here but decided to go with my gut feeling and just get it. It's a pretty good product over all, installs easy to any door, and is fun to use. The workout instructions are somewhat vague, but the dvd certainly helps. For those of you that are always at the gym or are in incredible shape, this wont help you much. For those of you that are crunched for time or have little experience at the gym, this is a nice workout item that can get you into shape. I incorporate this in my martial arts, regualr gym, and cardio workouts and it fits nice. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 24, 2010

    Big bang for your buck!

    I purchased the Tower 200 at my local Target store for $200, which came with a $30 Target gift card. This means that the Tower 200 actually cost me $170. I completely agree with the other reviewer on all points. It's well made, easy to install, and you can start your workouts almost immediately. I suggest watching the DVD first, which is included with the package. The workouts are effective and fairly safe to do. The excercises on the manual look good but lack detailed instructions. If you're familiar with bodybuilding, I'm sure you can figure it out. The kind of people that would get the biggest bang for their buck, are probably weekend warriors that want to get in shape, but don't have the time or money to go to a gym. I believe it's safe to use if you're in your 40's or 50's. I'm a martial artist, and use it for conditioning and strength training. I especially like doing the 11 minute and MMA workout shown on the DVD.

    It really does the job

    0 5/5 Michael Deyle - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Body By Jake The Solution Ab Machine (Misc.) This is a great piece of home gym equipment. Takes about 20 minutes to put together. Well made and sturdy. I am 6'0" tall so I have to place my hands futher back on the drop down bars for a total core workout. After about 20 seconds you will start to feel the burn. After two minutes, you can really feel the burn (in a very good way)! I have now worked up to about 41/2 minutes every morning first thing after waking up. You WILL get the results that you are looking for if you use this equipment properly and daily. Watching the video is a must (first step). If you follow the directions, you WILL start seeing results in the very first week.

    A Thorough, Comprehensive Workout Series in One DVD

    This DVD is one of the top three videos/DVDs in my HUGE collection. It should be much better promoted than it is.I've been working out for 20 years, and have had three pregnancies, and am now in the best shape of my life, am strong, hardy, defined, tight and slim, even after extensive bladder surgery and an hysterectomy in late 2005. This January, 2006, marks the first time I have ever even seen a "Body By Jake" video. I am VERY impressed, as this DVD is thorough, organized, the cueing is excellent, the motivation is strong, and the techniques taught are rock-solid. And although this DVD is derived from three videos from a series that is over ten years old (I thought I'd get that out of the way), it does not matter one bit, even if you are picky about costumes and music (like me). Jake is an EXCELLENT, vastly professional instructor/trainer/motivator. Set looks new, participants are strong, music is fine-really!). He encourages you to work hard, instilling in you the... 5/5 M. Rudman "verse47" (Littleton, CO USA) - See all my reviews, February 6, 2006

    great calorie burner, great muscle toner, great instructor and cueing...what more can I say?

    My workout regimen is an extensive collection of fitness dvds. If I feel my motivation waning, I'll buy one or two new ones so I wound up with quite a rotation of a library of workout dvds. Because of this, I'm picky about which ones I like, which ones I keep, and I have quite a comparison.Instruction: That said, this one ROCKS!! He is charming and fun personality-wise with some of the best instruction I've seen out there in doing the moves right. But don't think this is a beginner's dvd because of the great instruction, while you can alter the workout easily to fit your level, even those who love to workout will FEEL it.Caloric Burn: Body By Jake takes to heart the evidence that the most effective workout will get your heart rate up then do strength training while it's up and alternate this fat burning and muscle building circuit through the workout. I wear a bodybugg to measure my daily caloric burn so I can actually SEE scientifically how many calories a... 5/5 Chandler - See all my reviews, September 22, 2009

    A great discovery from the past

    0 5/5 Ryan (Illinois) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Body By Jake - Total Body Workout (DVD) The Body By Jake brand may have reached its peak a number of years back, but this DVD proves that fundamental routines really work. A fellow sales rep suggested checking out the Body By Jake book for a toning and cardio program that maximizes results in an efficient amount of time. I found the DVD instead and have not been disappointed. Most of what you need to know has already been well written here, but I wanted to say "affirmative!" I haven't worked out in several years, and have finally made the commitment to 3 days a week, plus some running. No fancy equipment, just some dumbbells and a bench, but you could make do with nothing for a while...as Jake says during one of the circuits, "there's no excuse not to work out!" I'll skip all the new trendy DVD workout productions, this one is working great for me. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 3, 2007

I purchased the Body-by-Jake Tower Xpress in November 2011.II. REVIEW:Like with the Tower 200 - as another Amazon reviewer succinctly wrote - the product is really a glorified resistance band system. In essence, all you're getting are resistance bands attached to a metal frame.The Tower Xpress is the lesser known little brother to the Tower 200. It consists of 4 (four) resistance bands: 2 x 25 lbs. of resistance and 2 x 40 lbs. of resistance, making for a 130 lb. maximum total.The Tower Xpress retails in select stores (Target, Kohls, et. al.) for $80.00.

    I MADE IT BETTER

    THIS IS MY OLD REVIEW: The Tower Xpress is more than less than the Tower 200. It comes with four pulleys at the top, but no pulleys at the bottom. So if you need to do exercises that require you to pull upwards or for your legs you have to switch the pulleys around. WHAT A PAIN IN THE BUTT! Why couldn't they just have 8 pulleys to begin with. And another thing you should know, the top part requires spacers at the front to make sure your door will shut by leveling off the top door brackets. I sent an email inquiring if they sell extra pulleys. I await their response. I'm sorry but they just didn't think this product through all the way. Well I just called body by jake customer service and they said they don't sell pulleys as a separate item. I might remove 2 at the top and put them at the bottom.

    Decent product, if you can find a door that will shut with it on

    Well, let me start off by saying I bought this yesterday (Valentine's Day) returned it today because I couldn't find a door that would shut with the equipment installed. I'm disappointed because I think it would be a good exercise product & I was really looking forward to trying it out. I gave it 4 stars because of the price, quality & ease of installing/removing & storing it. I'd like to give it 3.5 stars though, b/c I couldn't find a place to use it in my apartment.

    Great concept/poor quality

    The Weider X-Factor Door Gym has a lot of potential. I like the way it fits on the door forming a triple X and that it's portable and lightweight. I even like the more than enough resistance it provides at different levels for different muscle groups. This equipment has quality resistance bands as well as hand handles and ankle straps; it even comes with a how to DVD.Where this equipment fails is in the lack of quality in the pulley wheels; they are made of cheap plastic. It doesn't come close to the same high quality as the rest of the pieces.Out of the box two of the wheels were warped. When I exercised, the wheels would scrape against its housing making a very loud annoying sound. I could still hear it through my headphones with the volume turned up.Needless to say I returned it. I did not replace it.The quality of the cheap plastic wheels doesn't appear to be made for extended use over a long period of time. Anyone who bought a... 1/5 E.

This review is from: Body by Jake (Hardcover) I had this book in the 80's and I intend to use Jake's program again. I like it because it's structured and I can tune it to suit my own needs. I've tried other programs and all of them have come up short. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 6, 2000

    The Ab Scissors really scissors up your body!!!

    0 5/5 Roy Chan (Long Beach, CA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Ab Scissor (Seconds) (Misc.) After receiving the Ab Scissors from Body by Jake, I believe that this is a BEST, and I mean THE BEST Ab machine you can ever buy in the market today. It really works your Abs really well, and recommend it to everyone. The reason why this machine works really well is that the machine has a biomechanical breakthrough that creates the perfect synchronized abdominal motion, leveraging my body weight to deliver five levels of ab-sculpting resistance. Basically, I really recommend buying this machine because it really does works. If the price is bugging you, then I would also recommend the Ab Lounge 2. That machine also works great, and you could save a hundred dollar from buying that machine than the Ab Scissors. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 23, 2005

    0 4/5 bikebarn - See all my reviews This review is from: Ab Scissor (Seconds) (Misc.) I was a skeptic at first glance, thinking my arms do all the work. while your arms are doing some work, it was like doing seated crunches. i did a set of 20 and did feel it in my abs. at least for me i felt no back or neck pain. maybe try out a friends to see if it works for you before buying. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 2, 2013
