This educational and highly useful book shows the hacker and maker communities how to bring science into their health and exercise routine. There's more to being a geek than most people think when they hear the word, just as there's much more to fitness than the infomercials tell you at 2 a.m. According to Jeff Potter, author of O'Reilly's bestselling Cooking for Geeks, "a geek is anybody who's curious about the details about how things work," which "might be a car geek or somebody who's into sports" as much as your classic "technology geek." Like Potter did for cooking, in Fitness for Geeks, Bruce Perry revolutionizes the way any curious person views their fitness. This book will appeal to a broad audience of scientists, programmers, and anyone with an inquisitive mind who wants to experiment with health the way they tinker with technology. By applying the same technical approach they use to debug software or hack hardware, they will learn learn both what do do and why it works. Whether they have an established exercise routing and what to dig deeper to realize the physiology behind it, or if they're just looking for a way to get away from the computer to exercise in a way that speaks to them, this book helps readers discover a new method to building and maintaining fitness and a healthy lifestyle.
