About the Author
Jack LaLanne is famous for a number of firsts including opening the first modern health club in 1936; swimming from Alcatraz, hands and feet shackled. But his most famous first was to increase public awareness for the need of systematic physical conditioning through his daily exercise TV show, which spanned 34 years. He is labeled the father of the modern fitness movement in America today and is called "The Godfather of Fitness." Over 90 years old, LaLanne still works out twice a day and is in demand as a motivational speaker. His famous juice machines, which literally have sold millions, are staples in kitchens across America and the world. Generations young and old recognize him and practice his tenets.
Matthew J. Rettick knows what it takes to plan for a great retirement. Founder and CEO of Covenant Reliance Producers, Rettick has been dubbed "The Man with the Plan" by Market Advisor magazine, a leading industry publication. Being in the top 1 percent of retirement advisors in the country, Rettick has been tapped for financial product advice from insurance companies and has been featured repeatedly on various television stations as the "expert" in his field. His contribution to Fiscal Fitness gives retirees and pre-retirees a "plan" to achieve the best possible financial future.

Matthew J. Rettick is the Founder and CEO of Covenant Reliance Producers, LLC and he has experienced first hand at what can happen if you succumb to the over-buying, charging everything to credit, as well as seeing how quickly money can diminish if you're forced to go into nursing homes or other types of medical care. He has devoted his life to making sure that retiree's know how to make their money last longer, and stay financially stable.
I couldn't think of any people better to come together in writing this type of book. Both are hugely successful in what they do, and seem to really care about not just those that are now retired but those that really don't know how to go about saving and making themselves healthy. Included in Fiscal Fitness, you will find exercise tips, eating the correct foods, investing tips, long term health care advice as well as advice on how to make life a little less stressful. I wouldn't completely call this a `self-help' book, but it is a very nice guide book for those that really are looking for ways to enjoy their life, and make it last a little longer. On a side note I really appreciate the glossary, there are terms that I had no idea what they truly meant, and the glossary made those words very easy to understand. 5 Hearts
