Prison Fitness Book Released On Kindle

San Diego, Ca. (PRWEB) February 04, 2013

Bodyweight exercise author John Barrett Hawkins is offering the Kindle e-book edition of Penitentiary Fitness free for three days only beginning Monday Febuary 4.

When the California Department of Corrections took away their weights, the inmates created an ingenious workout regimen using bodyweight exercises that enabled them to develop sleek, muscular physiques remarkably similar to those of Olympic gymnasts. Convicted felon John Barrett Hawkins recognized that people in the “real world” could benefit from these prison workouts and spent the next eight years writing Penitentiary Fitness: The Amazing Weight Loss Formula.

In the opening segment John Hawkins chronicles his descent form successful entrepreneur (at the age of 25 he owned 22 Just Sweats clothing stores) to insurance fraud schemer to prison inmate. However, this book is not about crime — it is about a back to basics approach to fitness and weight loss.

Despite his lack of a background in health care, Hawkins is convinced that he has discovered the most effective weight loss formula available today—and maybe he has. The book’s recommendations are based on scientific discoveries made at the world’s top medical schools and research laboratories. A chapter titled “Medical Science’s 20 Fat Loss Secrets” is mandatory reading for anyone whose goal is to lose weight. Inspirational stories from followers of the program are sprinkled throughout the pages. The most successful participant, Daniel Durland, went from 296 pounds to 190 pounds in just five months.

“The convenience of the bodyweight exercises will be of value to people who do not have the time, money, or inclination to go to a gym,” says Hawkins. “The book has 14 different prison workouts. It was created for men and women of all walks of life. Whether you are an overweight person who is just getting started or a bodybuilder seeking challenging new training techniques, Penitentiary Fitness has a workout that will match your current fitness level.”

The book’s foreword was written by Alan Londe, MD, Chief of Staff at Barnes Jewish West County Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. He remarked, “Within the confines of a penitentiary, John Barrett Hawkins has written a book that gives direction to all of us who strive for health, using up-to-date scientific research and common sense methods acquired with limited resources.”
Penitentiary Fitness is a 174-page book. It is available free on Kindle for one day only, Saturday, November 10.. Visit the author’s web site HTTP:// to read free sample chapters.
