Date:Reviewed in the United States on May 21, 2020

Review:I have a small shelf of fitness manuals, and this is my favorite for its simple and practical exercises for strength, flexibility, and balance (separate chapters for each). No equipment is needed for any of these, though some can be used with ankle weights (I recommend) to make the exercise a bit more challenging. It covers comprehensively the muscle groups of the body, indicating what exercise covers what. There are other books with a greater number of exercises, which can make things actually more confusing for the reader trying to figure out which ones are the most effective. For older people, it's usually wise to work on exercises for the lower half of the body. All of us need to get out of a chair and walk without falling, but usually do not need big biceps. It comes with a DVD, but it was missing in my copy. Read more

Review:The exercises in this book are basic, for people who have had little experience with going to a gym or starting from the beginning. All decent, basic exercises for someone desperately needing to pay attention to their body. I was hoping more for a routine, (especially with gyms not being open during the COVID virus), where I could adjust my exercise to an at home, without equipment routine. This book will go to the local thrift store where someone may find it helpful to them. Read more

Review:Practical. Not a word wasted, with good common sense. For example, with reference to the latter, this book warns that the older person must be careful not to over-emphasize strength fitness. So true. As a very senior citizen, I have seen so many of my exercising contemporaries injure themselves by doing excessive strength training while not balancing them with flexibility, vitality, and balance training. Book is large and lies flat so it can be viewed while learning through the routines. Read more

Date:Reviewed in the United States on February 9, 2014

Review:As a senior I needed exercises that I can do now. This book is my best guide. If you haven't exercised in a while, this book will get you started on a fitness plan you can start as a (previous) couch potato and get fit again, Have recommended it to my friends. They want to borrow mine, but I tell them to go to Amazon and get their own. I need to keep mine! Read more
