Female Fitness Stars of TV and the Movies: Featuring Profiles of Cher, Goldie Hawn, Lucy Lawless, and Demi Moore (Legends of Health & Fitness) Library Binding – August 1, 2000
From School Library Journal
Grade 7 Up-In her introduction, Costello describes the stamina and physical fitness actors need to play certain roles. Her clearly written profiles on Cher, Goldie Hawn, Lucy Lawless, Demi Moore, and others include information on the personal convictions that led each highly motivated star to seek a lifestyle of sound nutrition and exercise. Readers will be inspired by the grit and determination evidenced by these individuals in achieving their goals. In the introduction to Trailblazers, Powell outlines various programs or regimens of physical training including yoga, aerobics, and weight training. Profiles include Joe Weider, the father of the sports nutrition industry; Jack LaLanne, owner of the first health club in the world; Jake Steinfeld, personal trainer of the stars; and Richard Simmons, who used television as the medium to promote nutritional and physical health. In both volumes, several captioned black-and-white photographs accompany each biographical sketch. Students with an interest in health and nutrition and bodybuilding may find good recreational reading here. The books will also serve as resources for health, life skills, and physical-education classes.
