"Fit Body Fit Mind: Your Practical Guide to Aging Well" – the first book to take credible body, mind fitness and dieting research and apply it in a single, concise, fad-free publication – is now available on Amazon.com and Xeniors.com.
The book by International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) Senior Fitness Specialist Lawrence S. Richardson, Jr., features detailed guidance for absolute beginners and intermediate athletes of all ages who want to age well, including:
➢ Step-by-step instruction on how to start an effective aerobic and strength training exercise program, with an emphasis on being kind to their bodies to promote whole-body health, strength, balance, and toning while reducing the risk of injury.
➢ Tips for dieting to lose weight and keep it off, including the essentials of a healthy diet and vegetable-rich recipes for many popular meals.
➢ Information on how to get involved in brain-boosting activities to reduce the risk of dementia, such as playing guitar, taking up photography, writing a blog, camping, and volunteering.
➢ An overview of common chronic illnesses, such as arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity, and what they can do to accommodate them when they exercise.
"I wrote ‘Fit Body Fit Mind: Your Practical Guide to Aging Well’ to give people fad-free, scientifically proven, and truly achievable methods to attain excellent body and mind health and to lose weight and keep it off for their entire lives," said Richardson. "The exercise methods in this book are based on rock-solid science gathered from decades of research. People, regardless of their level of fitness, health challenges, or age can benefit from them."
"With only 20 percent of Americans getting both the aerobic and strength training exercise they need and two-thirds categorized as obese or overweight," Richardson said, "my hope is that ‘Fit Body Fit Mind: Your Practical Guide to Aging Well’ will be the go-to book for everyone at any age who wants to take a sensible approach to improving their health. Doctors, nurses, and senior caregivers can also use the book to help their patients to become happier, more active, mobile and independent."
"Fit Body Fit Mind: Your Practical Guide to Aging Well" is being sold with free, bonus exercise and cooking videos and a companion Website created by Richardson called Xeniors.com.
The book is available in paperback and Kindle editions. The Kindle edition now has the "Look Inside" feature turned on, which lets readers view the entire first chapter and partial second chapter.
