Description

Imagine picking up the morning paper and seeing a banner headline that reads: Miraculous New Anti-Aging Pill Discovered. In The Fitness Factor, now in paperback, Lisa Callahan, M.D., shows us that such a magic pill already exists in the form of regular daily exercise. Cofounder and medical director for the country's premier sports medicine centre for women, Dr. Callahan speaks honestly and intelligently to women, helping them understand that the benefits of regular exercise go well beyond the cosmetic. Fitness, in fact, is the single most important factor when it comes to preventing heart disease, beating osteoporosis, lowering cholesterol, decreasing cancer risk, losing weight, increasing energy, reducing stress, having better sex, and much more. Dr. Callahan offers readable and reliable information on weight loss, nutrition for the active woman, exercise and pregnancy or menopause, training for endurance competition, prevention and treatment of injuries. She dispels dozens of myths about diet and exercise that have pervaded our culture.show more

Review quote

"This book is a great tool for women at all fitness levels. Callahan's explanation of the impact of exercise on losing weight, improving mental health, and preventing heart disease and osteoporosis got me back to the gym after a six-month hiatus. I was also stirred into action by her routine stories of women who'd turned their lives around with exercise. This book will help novices get started safely and will spice up the routines of athletes bored with their current programs. This friendly guide (is) perfect for anyone who needs one more reason to get up off the couch."--"Natural Health"show more
