Age-Defying Fitness

Age-Defying Fitness: Making the Most of Your Body for the Rest of Your Life (Peachtree, 2006, $19.95) by Marilyn Moffat, Carole B. Lewis

The Why

Do you have any aches and pains? Well, this book is about three important components of fitness: posture, flexibility, and balance. Everyone who wants to enjoy life should own this book. The authors are physical therapy experts.

The Health Bonus

An exercise band comes with the book; all the exercises are explained, including the reasons they are important and how to do them with weights or the exercise band.

What We Liked Best

The descriptions are very clear, and the quantity and quality of the exercises are impressive.

What We Liked Least

The book needs more photos -- they're in there, but it would be nice to have a series of five or six photos for each exercise. Also, color photos would help take the "boring" out of the images.

What It Replaces

Not doing any posture, flexibility, or balance exercises.

The Price: $19.95

Other Offerings: The American Physical Therapy Association Book of Body Maintenance and Repair by Steve Vickery and Marilyn Moffat (Holt Paperbacks, 1999, $24)

Where to Buy: BN.com, Amazon.com, or your local bookstore

 

Ingredients: Chapter 1: Assessing Your Body; Chapter 2: Posture; Chapter 3: Strength; Chapter 4: Balance; Chapter 5: Flexibility; Chapter 6: Endurance
