Synopsis

This book shows how to regain and maintain fitness, and enjoy better health, vitality and wellbeing. The first chapters cover the case for exercise and look at the importance of exercise in the four major systems of the body: heart and lungs; the muscles; bones and joints; brain and body links. It explains how these systems can be made stronger and healthier with exercise and how to prevent problems in these areas in the future. The main section is the "Fitness for Life" exercise programme, which has been specially designed to meet the needs of the older exerciser. It focuses on strengthening muscles and bones, on improving stamina and increasing mobility, flexibility and balance, and on reversing the ageing process.
