Review:

'Shoulder shrugs, trunk twists and tropicana wiggles are just some Julie's fun routines - anyone can do it' -- Telegraph & Argus magazine supplement ' Just Relax' (Tuesday October 16, 2001)

It is one of the first exercise books to cater for older people with a range of physical abilities, including the very elderly and those who may be chair-bound -- www.health-news.co.uk (August 22, 2001)

This book gives ideas for exercise that even the very elderly and chairbound people can tackle. -- Health Service Journal. (September 13, 2001)

This book offers plenty of information and practical advice for helping older people to age well and remain 'alive and kicking' -- Gordon Lishman, Age Concern England's Director General. www.ageconcern.org.uk

From the Author:

Understanding how physical activity can maintain or improve quality of life will help us to prepare for our own old age and provide the opportunity to motivate others so that they too can age with grace and dignity. Appreciating the positive influence of exercise may also help to get rid of the many negative assumptions of what old age will be like. The most important message must be that older people have the most to gain from regular exercise and the most to lose from inactivity. I hope this book has provided the practical help you may have been searching for in order to help older people make these positive changes.
