Growing older does not mean accepting diminished fitness.
There is no doubt that our bodies change with age. But many of the problems attributed to inevitable age-related changes are, in fact, not inevitable and are often lifestyle-induced and reversible. Two of the nation’s top physical therapists show how to assess fitness levels and create a specific profile to achieve optimum physical health.
Marilyn Moffat and Carole B. Lewis explain how to overcome the aches, stiffness, and unsteadiness in muscles and joints. Using their simple, self-administered tests, you can assess your level of physical performance in five critical domains: posture, balance, strength, flexibility, and endurance. You can also develop a personal profile according to the results of these tests. Easy-to-follow strengthening and stretching exercises accompany a Thera-Band ® resistive exercise band. 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.
