Product Overview

"25 exercises you need for wellness along with detailed intructions and photos."--"Reader's Digest"
Some people just assume that as they age, they will be less physically fit and may lose their independence--but that doesn't have to happen. The National Institute on Aging has brought together a team of experts to offer advice on staying healthy longer, with exercises tailored to be safe and effective for those over fifty.
Studies show that, in the long term, older adults in all age groups hurt their health far more by not exercising than by exercising. As a rule, older people should stay as physically active as they can. The good news is that just about every older adult can safely do some form of physical activity at little or no cost. And they don't have to exercise in a public place or use expensive equipment.
"Fitness Over Fifty," offers practical advice about the four areas that are important for staying healthy and independent: endurance, strength, balance and flexibility. "Fitness Over Fifty" includes:
- ways to get--and stay--motivated
- advice on stretching and increasing flexibility
- daily, weekly, and monthly exercise and nutrition records and more
- 200 photos
