Here’s the fitness solution you’ve been waiting for: a workout designed to build strength, endurance and flexibility in a gentle way – right from your own bed. The series of forty-two exercises draw upon yoga, Pilates, karate, and stretching. The routines are easy to follow and grouped into three sections: exercises to be done lying on your back, sides, and stomach. Regular practice will tone muscles, increase strength and endurance, calm the mind, and, yes, even improve sleep. Each exercise is described in detail, fully-illustrated with step-by-step photographs, and accompanied by modifications for special conditions and limitations.
Almost everyone can benefit from this simple program. In fact, research even shows physician-approved mild exercise can reduce patient hospital stays in the intensive care unit. (Of course as with any fitness program, you should always check with your doctor before undertaking a new exercise regime.)

No more excuses to postpone exercising! Get Fit in Bed makes it possible to start your day feeling great before you even roll out of bed. Ideal for the elderly or those recovering from injury or illness, Get Fit in Bed provides the reader with about 50 low-impact exercises to increase strength and flexibility. Don’t let the “in-bed” nature of these workouts fool you—some of these exercises are quite challenging (as they should be). But have no fear, the exercises are simple and the instructions are concise and accompanied by black-and-white photography. The book divides exercises into categories of those done on your back, right side, left side, and stomach, along with modifications for special circumstances. Tartell and Kavanau also hone in on different regions of the body to enable the reader to construct a full-body workout. This workout is a gentle, yet effective, substitute for floor exercises, and the authors take care to include details addressing safety precautions. Not only does this routine deliver results, but it can be completed in about 20 minutes. In fact, many of these exercises can be done on the couch in your down time. Get Fit in Bed provides a great way to construct a personalized workout routine that will leave you feeling revitalized. There are no more excuses to postpone getting back into shape!
Helpful Book. It's especially good if you're injured or recovering from an illness and spending a lot of time in bed and want to build or maintain your strength.
