About the Author:

Pearlman has been active in the health and fitness market for more than 20 years.

Review:

If you want your time outdoors to be productive and injury-free, make sure you do some simple exercises to get your body in shape before the annual dig. (Charles Downey Los Angeles Times)

Contains basic tips on how you can maximize your time in the garden without all the pain the next day. Whatever you do, try and keep outdoor endeavors light and carefree. (Better Homes and Gardens)

This book is a well-researched, sound compendium covering just about everything you need to know to garden safely and healthfully. It belongs on every gardener's reference shelf... make sure you follow the advice in it each time you go out to work in the garden. (Nancy Wingate The News Journal)

For answers, we turn to fitness guru Barbara Pearlman, or rather to her new book: Gardener's Fitness. It is a slim, chatty volume that covers everything from strengthening and stretching exercises to proper tools, from remedies for scrapes and rashes to warding off bugs. (Stephanie Cavanaugh The Washington Post)

Most other gardening books help you to enjoy gardening; this one will make you feel good about it. (Lynn Lustberg Garden Showcase)

Pearlman has written a balanced, thoughtful, and very useful book filled with simple conditioning exercises to help our bodies survive the gardening season. (Sarah Robertson The News-Review)

It's not just our gardens that need a spring tuneup. Our winterized bodies could use some help this time of year, too. Gardener's Fitness gives a series of stretching and strengthening exercises designed especially with gardening in mind. (The San Diego Union-Tribune)

An hour of gardening can burn as many calories as a 3 1/2-mile brisk walk, according to Barbara Pearlman, author of Gardener's Fitness. The sport of gardening requires strength, flexibility, and agility. Here Pearlman offers some dos and don'ts for your work in the dirt. (Natural Health)

Follow Pearlman's suggestions for warm-ups, and reap all the pleasures made possible by your green thumb, without suffering from a complaining back. Gardening should never be a painful experience. (Victoria)

[Pearlman's] book has easy-to-follow exercises and illustrations that include therapeutic movements to relieve discomfort, conditioning exercises and stretches to relax muscles and restore energy after working in the garden. (Colorado Springs Gazette, Springs Gazette)
