Kelly Starrett, physical therapist and author of the new book “Deskbound: Standing Up to a Sitting World” a guide that aims to mitigate back pains, carpal tunnel aches and myriad other ailments currently afflicting desk jockies worldwide....Science backs him up: A recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that physical inactivity is a bigger risk factor in mortality than obesity. - New York Post --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

About the Author

Dr. Kelly Starrett is the author of the New York Times bestseller Becoming a Supple Leopard, which has revolutionized how coaches, athletes, and everyday humans approach movement and athletic performance. Dr. Starrett is a co-founder of San Francisco CrossFit and MobilityWOD.com, where he shares his innovative approach to movement, mechanics, and mobility with coaches and athletes. He travels around the world teaching his wildly popular Movement & Mobility Course and works with elite Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard forces; athletes from the NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB; and national and world-ranked strength and power athletes. He consults with Olympic teams and universities and is a featured speaker at strength and conditioning conferences nationwide. Dr. Starrett’s work is not limited to coaches and athletes; his methods apply equally well to children, desk jockeys, and anyone dealing with injury and chronic pain. He believes that every human being should know how to move and be able to perform basic maintenance on themselves.

Juliet Starrett is an attorney, athlete, and entrepreneur. She is co-founder and CEO of San Francisco CrossFit and MobilityWOD.com. As a mother and co-founder of the nonprofit StandUp Kids, Juliet is committed to getting every public school child at a standing desk within 10 years in order to combat the epidemic of sedentary lifestyles.
