Men and women of the boomer generation w have a book about exercise catered to their specific needs and circumstances. A recent New York Times article on the elderly and exercise proclaims. Encouraged by doctors to continue to exercise three to five times a week for their health, a legion of running, swimming and biking elders are flouting the conventional limits of the middle-aged body's abilities, and filling the nation's operating rooms and orthopedists' offices in the process.
Dr. David Pargman, professor emeritus at Florida State University, is an expert on the psychology of exercise. He is the perfect person to write this much-needed book, blending humor, personal experience and a deep knowledge of the subject. As an avid and over 60 exerciser who continues to enjoy a healthy regimen of jogging, stretching and strength training, he is able to provide inspiration and encouragement to readers. Boomercise: Exercising as You Age will prove to be the definitive book on exercise for this under-served market.
