    "After losing my gym subscription, I needed a way I could keep in shape at home. I downloaded this app thinking it could help. Some of these are super useful and I love the guidance! Others, I still need gym equipment for, so I can't use them, which sucks. It's a good app though, especially considering that it's free."

The book definitely offers one genre of fitness and gives advice on how to get six pack abs, so I suppose that technically it is a correct hit return. However, when I think of fitness, I think more of moderate intensity exercise, or even lifestyle changes.
