Praise for Move Yourself

""Move Yourself is a timely and user-friendly guide to better health. I could go on, but it's time for me to get up and get moving!""
--Tom Brokaw

""The science is clear: staying healthy means moving our bodies more, choosing more of the right foods in the proper portions, and avoiding unsafe behaviors like smoking. In Move Yourself, you'll find the kind of sound advice and strong motivation you'd expect from an expert personal coach.""
--Richard H. Carmona, M.D., M.P.H., F.A.C.S., 17th Surgeon General of the United States and Vice Chairman of Canyon Ranch

""Being fit has always been important in my career, both as a martial artist and as an actor. But what I learned long ago is that a physically active lifestyle also improves every aspect of living. The good news is that you don't have to train like an athlete to receive these tremendous benefits; you just have to make it a priority. In Move Yourself, Drs. Mitchell and Church explain just how easy it can be. With just a little commitment and a little know-how, you too can make yourself feel like a champ!""
--Chuck Norris

""As a former couch potato, I can attest to the incredible health benefits that come from physical activity. Move Yourself shows that you don't have to become a gym rat--here's everything you need to get moving at your own reasonable pace.""
--Jack Challem, author of Stop Prediabetes Now and The Food-Mood Solution

From the Inside Flap:

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.
