In A Poet’s Guide to Outdoor Exercise, author John Famulary shares some remarkable outdoor exercise adventures set in such exotic locales as Williamsburg, Brooklyn; Central Park; the Catskill Mountains and a football field in New Jersey.
John discusses the advantages of outdoor exercise and, in clues and descriptions, suggests steps you can take to create your own outdoor exercise routine.
For the author, outdoor exercise means being in nature wherever he finds it plus the “joy of movement,” as they used to say. There’s some philosophy here, too. A little poetry, as well, and some excerpts from an “unconventional” life, the author's own.
In fresh and inventive prose, Famulary has penned a thought-provoking memoir that’s also a practical guide to physical fitness and a metaphysical tool.
Sometimes humorous, occasionally profound, A Poet’s Guide to Outdoor Exercise invites readers to explore pathways and processes- both physical and metaphysical- that can help us energize and re-vitalize almost every time.
