Growing older does not mean accepting diminished fitness. Two of the nation's top physical therapists show how to assess your fitness levels and create a specific profile to achieve optimum physical health.
There is no doubt that our bodies change with age, as the baby-boomer generation is now learning firsthand. But many of the problems attributed to inevitable age-related changes are in fact not inevitable and are often lifestyle-induced and reversible.
In this new book, Moffat and Lewis show how to overcome the aches, stiffness, and unsteadiness in your muscles and joints. Using their simple, self-administered tests, you will assess your level of physical performance in these five critical domains: posture, balance, strength, flexibility, and endurance. The authors help you develop a personal profile according to the results of these tests. Easy-to-follow strengthening and stretching exercises, based on the latest clinical research, accompany a Thera-Band ® resistive exercise band for use in some exercises.
More than a simple how-to book, Age-Defying Fitness encourages you to take responsibility for your physical well-being, and offers an easy everyday approach to achieving better health.
To purchase a Thera-band individually, please contact The Hygenic Corporation at their toll-free number: 1 (800) 321-2135.
