Praise for Move Yourself
"Move Yourself is a timely and user-friendly guide to better health. I could go on, but it's time for me to get up and get moving!"
"The science is clear: staying healthy means moving our bodies more, choosing more of the right foods in the proper portions, and avoiding unsafe behaviors like smoking. In Move Yourself, you'll find the kind of sound advice and strong motivation you'd expect from an expert personal coach."
—Richard H. Carmona, M.D., M.P.H., F.A.C.S., 17th Surgeon General of the United States and Vice Chairman of Canyon Ranch
"Being fit has always been important in my career, both as a martial artist and as an actor. But what I learned long ago is that a physically active lifestyle also improves every aspect of living. The good news is that you don't have to train like an athlete to receive these tremendous benefits; you just have to make it a priority. In Move Yourself, Drs. Mitchell and Church explain just how easy it can be. With just a little commitment and a little know-how, you too can make yourself feel like a champ!"
"As a former couch potato, I can attest to the incredible health benefits that come from physical activity. Move Yourself shows that you don't have to become a gym rat—here's everything you need to get moving at your own reasonable pace."
—Jack Challem, author of Stop Prediabetes Now and The Food-Mood Solution
