Do you believe that aging must be endured with clenched teeth? Then Reader's Digest's Get Fit, Feel Fantastic! was written for you.

Today, so many health and fitness books are written with the younger generation in mind, but authors Perring and Hooper offer information geared toward those 40 years of age and older. This comprehensive volume can be read from cover to cover, but it can also be sampled in small bites.

The book is divided into seven chapters and covers every phase of mind-body health during middle-age. The authors guide you each step of the way as they show you how to build stamina, muscular strength, and flexibility to boost energy, ward off disease, and lose weight; use mental workouts to sharpen the mind, sight, hearing, and memory; gain self-confidence while managing stress, developing new relationships, and enhancing your sex life; and create a positive outlook on life, liven up your lifestyle, and use leisure time productively.

The book is filled with colorful charts, illustrative photos, and helpful tips and tables to aid in understanding how your body changes as it ages and what you can do to make the most of each decade of your life. But you don't have to be middle-aged or older to benefit from Get Fit, Feel Fantastic! Down-to-earth, practical advice about how to look and feel great is information you can use, no matter what age you happen to be.
