Putting Movement Into Your Life : A Beyond Fitness Primer


Putting Movement Into Your Life : A Beyond Fitness Primer



By Maxine Sheets-Johnstone, former College at Brockport visiting professor.

Putting Movement into Your Life: A Beyond Fitness Primer is both playful and serious, bridging both popular and scholarly texts. It is engagingly written with two reflective stopping posts -- Ponderabilia -- per chapter that offer slow food for thought on a diversity of topics related to the immediate topic in the text. The book is definitely NOT an exercise book or a self-help book, but a book about movement that breaks new ground in lively and creative ways while remaining anchored in everyday life. In so doing, it answers to the growing attempt by numerous individuals, organizations, and businesses to promote health by promoting movement.
