Praise For Working Out Sucks! (And Why It Doesn't Have To)

BookPage , 1/1/12
“An audacious approach to the challenges that keep people from getting fit…Less a workout book and more an entertaining, kick-in-the-backside companion.”

American Fitness, March/April 2012 “[Runyon’s] take on exercise and eating well is relentlessly blunt, but he manages to drive all of his points home expertly with a fine dose of empathy and good-natured wit.”
