5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended, January 7, 2010

This review is from: Fitness After 40: How to Stay Strong at Any Age (Paperback)
This book is filled with common sense advice and some fantastic exercises. I'm 50 and in fairly good shape (I run, elliptical or bike for a half hour 5-6 days a week - plus I walk my dog for an hour each day). I've been experiencing "boomeritis" in recent months and was going from one injury to another. And half the time, the injury came about from doing simple tasks like tossing a ball for my dog or just getting out of bed in the morning. Vonda Wright is an orthopaedic surgeon so I trusted what she had to say - and again, the book is really filled with common sense advice. She gives great flexibility and strength training workouts and answered most of the questions I had about how to remain active when your body is starting to balk. It motivated me to incorporate a strength training workout into my usual routine, and I'm glad I did. The book is for anyone who enjoys being active (or is just starting out and wants to become active) and hopes to stay that way for a long time. I highly recommend this book.

Really? I thought it was simply a normal, positive review. I too liked the book! And I am an 'Adult Onset Exerciser!'
