Nearly 200 pounds lost and years later, she shares with readers the power of the world's most natural exercise--walking.

About the book:
Complete with workout routines, tips on proper shoes and nutrition, recipes for power shakes, and even a free download of a thirty-minute walking workout that includes music and Chantel's coaching, Walk Strong, Look Up is the whole package. Chantel also reveals how walking and praying at the same time both intensifies the workout and adds a spiritual component to exercising that helps readers maintain their energy and enthusiasm. Anyone who desires a stronger body and a deeper connection with God will love this book.
My take on this book:
"Walk Strong, Look Up" is a book about using walking to become healthier while allowing God to become your workout buddy. A motivational book that not only encourages you to use walking as a way to get fit physically but to use the time spent walking to get fit spiritually.
Broken down into four sections the why, the how, the weight and the win. Written in such a conversational way that you feel as if your listening to the author speak about such things as buying the correct type of shoes, to figuring out your B.M.I. The question and answer section in each chapter actually gives you enough space to jot down your answers or ideas. There are also some great tips about the types of food we should be eating along with a few great recipes that are simple and cost efficient to make. I have actually already tried a few of the shake recipes and found them delicious.
Having really never heard of Chantel Hobbs before I wasn't sure what her book might have for me, but I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of information that I gleaned from reading it. Basically a four week walking program that is motivational and encouraging. I will certainly be looking for more books by Chantel Hobbs.
