The companion videotape to Weight Training: Steps to Success shows viewers everything they need to know to start a well-balanced weight training program. Step by step, the video demonstrates how to perform the same 19 exercises that are covered in the book. The video makes learning easy by using slow motion, freeze-frames, and graphics to show viewers the proper positioning and lifting technique for each exercise. It also gives tips on choosing the right equipment and presents exercise programs for three different types of equipment—free weights, single- or multistation pivot machines, and cam machines. While the Weight Training Video is designed for students who are just starting out, it's also great for those who have lifted weights before but have never had formal instruction in weight training. It's full of informative demonstrations that give students a sound base of weight training knowledge and allow them to visualize the methods described in the book.

Words of Praise

"Extremely comprehensive, thorough, and enjoyable to watch. I would highly recommend it to a novice exerciser because it emphasizes safety, technique, and progression at the individual's pace and comfort level. I also believe the veteran weight trainer or personal trainer could benefit from this video because it brings you back to the basics."
