If you are looking for a great injury prevention and physical wellness book, I have a recommendation for you. Age-Defying Fitness: Making the Most of Your Body for the Rest of Your Life is written by two well respected physical therapists – Marilyn Moffat and Carole B. Lewis. The book is divided into the “5 domains of fitness”; posture, strength, balance, flexibility and endurance. There are a series of self-tests for every domain followed by exercises and stretches to improve your self-test score. Some of the exercises involve using an therapeutic band, which comes with the book.
I like this book so much that both my mother and mother-in-law each got a copy from me as a gift. Kudos go out to my physical therapy colleagues, Moffat and Lewis, who have put together a media-savvy book that is comprehensive, effective and a great tool for anybody looking to improve their physical well being.
