Overview

Exercise can decrease your risk of heart disease, improve your memory and your mood, help you sleep better, and slow down the aging process. And yet most of us can find plenty of excuses for not exercising. In this surprising new guide from the medical director of the world-renowned Cooper Clinic, you'll discover how, in just minutes a day, you can dramatically improve your health—without running a marathon, joining a gym, or even breaking a sweat.

Move Yourself offers an innovative, easy-to-follow prescription for infusing your daily life with just a few minutes of low-dose physical activity—and reaping big health benefits from the start. Dr. Tedd Mitchell of the Cooper Clinic, fitness research expert Dr. Tim Church, and veteran health writer Martin Zucker present a manageable program that will have you up and moving, eating better, and feeling great.

First, you'll get a clear understanding of how physical activity protects you from a wide range of common diseases, as well as never-before-published information about the ways movement improves quality of life. Then you'll customize your plan by selecting one of the three Move Yourself programs packed with cardio, nutrition, and weight-resistance advice tailored to your needs.

Filled with lessons from the authors' thousands of patients and study participants, this medically sound program gives you the tools to:

  • Start logging your daily activity
  • Add movement easily into your daily routine
  • Get moving when you're tired, traveling, busy, or depressed
  • Optimize your cardiovascular health
  • Strengthen your muscles safely
  • Increase your joint flexibility

As you get healthier with more movement, you'll make better eating choices with the book's 14-day menu suggestions. You'll also get plenty of inspiration for sticking with the program and staying positive. Being more active doesn't have to be difficult, time-consuming, or expensive. All it takes is the desire and support you need to Move Yourself.
