About the Author
In addition to authoring award winning young adult novels, PJ Sharon owns ABSolute Fitness and Therapeutic Bodywork, a private practice massage therapy and personal training business in East Granby, CT. With over twenty-five years in the health and fitness industry, Ms. Sharon offers a multidisciplinary approach to wellness. As a Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA), Massage Therapist (LMT), Certified Personal Fitness Trainer (CPFT), and Yoga Instructor, Ms. Sharon brings a wealth of knowledge to her clients and workshops. A graduate of Springfield Technical Community College and the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy, Ms. Sharon also holds certifications as a trainer through the NFPT and teaches therapeutic yoga. A Black Belt in the art of Shaolin Kempo Karate, and former figure skating and power skating instructor, Ms. Sharon’s passion for holistic health and healing comes through in her writing—whether she is penning romantic and hopeful stories for teens, or sharing her wisdom and experience with clients and workshop attendees. When she’s not writing, or spreading the love through her practice, she can be found kayaking in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts, and renovating an old farmhouse with the love of her life.

I also like how Ms. Sharon addresses the mental processes needed to make real and lasting change. She presents neat tools to help alleviate the tightness and painful knots that accumulate in out of balance, overstrained muscles. As a final sweetener, she shares nutrient rich recipes to help stay healthy and fit.
This book is a great resource, and I know I’ll be thumbing back through for the exercises, explanations and recipes. I recommend 'Overcome Your Sedentary Lifestyle' to anyone who wants to add more life to their years.
I also loved the tips for Rabid Readers and the injured and infirm.
Lots of good information here. More importantly, at least for me, lots of practical advice on how to incorporate many little changes that will add up to a much healthier lifestyle.
Bodyworker and athlete PJ Sharon gives common sense advice with illustrations on how to not ruin your health by sitting so much. I appreciate the illustrations which show exercises and the muscle groups the exercise works. The suggestions are great.
Scientists say sitting is the new smoking. Well, considering how much research time is spent at a computer or a diagnostic machine, maybe they need this book, too.
I've added some of the stretches in the book, and marked several pages to read again. The stretches and exercises can be modified and added a little at a time. Highly recommended, especially for desk-dwellers.
I like that this book offers easy, simple to incorporate tips. Whether it's something as simple as setting a timer at work so that you get up and move every 30 to 60 minutes or making exercise part of your schedule just like anything else that's important, you'll find that these tips make sense.
I definitely recommend the book. As someone that's overweight and has read, and written, about a number of techniques, I can state that this has information that works.
