I’m on a mission to review all my outstanding non-fiction books this month, since it’s non-fiction November. And there’s a lot! Will I be able to do it? I’ll give it my best shot.
If there is one thing you should know about the author, Holly Davidson, is she’s an active little soul, so when I discovered her book, “Active: Workouts that work for you”, that can even be done from a settee, I put down my chocolate bar, picked up this book and shouted ‘take me to it, sister!’ eager to learn more.
Holly is a top personal trainer who likes to take a holistic approach to keeping fit, healthy, and eating well. She believes fitness is within us, and can be done anywhere – at home on your settee, outside, even sitting at your desk.
After the exercises, which are all laid out nicely with colour photos showing the various different positions of each step, comes the chat about diet and nutrition.
I was relieved to hear Holly’s a big believer in just eating healthier. No dieting. No starving yourself, or obscure ingredients. Just delicious healthy food. There’s even a no fuss chocolate brownies recipe, as she admits she too is a chocoholic.
Finally, at the back of the book are some ‘at-a-glance’ workout summaries which list all the exercises that make up each work out and the number of reps and timings, for a quick and easy way to remember the order of each different workout. With tips for planning your routines during a normal week and during a busy week included.
Very well thought out. Great photos. And it smells absolutely good enough to eat! This is going on my top ten of ‘Great smelling books’ which will absolutely delight other booksniffers, I’m sure!
Over all, I enjoyed reading this book and will endeavour to give this a go – after I’ve finished my chocolate bar first.

Hahaha I thought you would have abandoned the chocolate bar after reading this one or settling for only a third of the bar because no dieting but eating healthy LOL Great and funny review!
haha! Nope! 🙂 Thanks x
Loved your review and this sounds like the perfect book for me! Funny thing: I usually nibble on A Hershey’s chocolate bar when reading. LOL
Don’t they do those peanut butter cups? I love them! Used to have to get them sent from America. They have them here now, but they are so expensive and for just two in a pack or a small bag.
This sounds like one I should get. I also do not believe in diets, just healthy eating. And I am also a chocoholic so she sounds like someone I can relate to.
Yes! I do like to look at different diets but would only do one more suited to me, and I pretty much have to leave out dairy etc so anything too
fussy I have to pass LOL
I am a cheese and yogurt lover, so am lucky that dairy does not affect me negatively.
You are! Lucky 🍀 Strangely I can eat hard cheese in small quantities? So I do. Probably too often lol 😂 but I love 💕 cheese! It’s my kryptonite
I love the book sniffing comment! I want to sniff this one now! 😂
Aside from reading – book sniffing is one of my favourite hobbies. My husband is always telling me to stop lol 😂
