Fit at Mid-Life is a smart and practical approach to getting active later in life. Drawing from their personal experiences as well as the latest research, Samantha Brennan and Tracy Isaacs deliver a wealth of concrete advice on everything from how to keep bones strong to what types of fitness activities give the biggest returns.
But Fit at Mid-Life is more than just a fitness guide. Taking a feminist perspective, the authors challenge society's default whats, whys, and hows of every aspect of getting fit, whether it's why women avoid free weights at the gym, how personal trainers talk to their female clients, or why dress size is so often considered a benchmark for fitness.
Empowering and relatable, Fit at Mid-Life shows how women can best take charge of their health and be active - no matter what their shape, size, age, or ability.
