Very good home-based exercise program …. book is a little repetitive Overall, a decent book and good choice for those over 40 (or younger) who want to start an exercise program or improve on their current regime. The focus on the necessity of including aerobic activity, strength training, flexibility, and balance is good, as too often the latter two categories are overlooked. But it seems like much of the book is aimed at those who need to be convinced of the importance of exercising – it that’s you, there’s a good overview of the many major benefits of exercise…

Everything you need to know, all in one book! I also bought the first addition, so I wasn’t sure if I might be wasting time and money on the second addition. But, turned out better than expected. This new addition includes all the latest research in nutrition, which is considerable, as well as, some new exercises and stretches. It’s like Vonda knew exactly what I needed an update on to keep my fitness program engaged. I’m 66, by the way, running 2 miles every other day, and looking forward to the third addition!

Smart & Safe Way to Start Moving Again! I loved her book “Fitness After Forty”. This new new one is not just the old one with a new title, Dr Vonda spent time updating it with all new info & exercises, She even confessed she’s human & gained a few lbs writing her book. Then told us how she slowly lost the weight! She’s just like the rest of us 🙂 Note: I didnt buy this book because it was a “diet” book, I bought it after a knee injury, to supplement my Physical Therapy.
