About this title


Imagine picking up the morning paper and seeing a banner headline that reads: miraculous new anti-aging pill discovered. In The Fitness Factor, Lisa Callahan, M.D., shows us that such a magic pill already exists in the form of regular daily exercise. As cofounder and medical director for the country's premier sports medicine center for women and a well-known medical spokeswoman, Dr. Callahan is uniquely qualified to write this book. She has treated thousands of patients-from housewives to professional athletes-and has helped them change their lives forever by instilling in them the knowledge that an essential connection exists between fitness and health. She speaks honestly and intelligently to women, helping them understand that the benefits of regular exercise go well beyond the cosmetic. Fitness, in fact, is the single most important factor when it comes to:

-preventing heart disease -beating osteoporosis
-lowering cholesterol -decreasing cancer risk
-losing weight -increasing energy
-reducing stress -having better sex
-and much more

In her authoritative yet congenial style, Dr. Callahan addresses women of all ages (from 18 to 98) and abilities (from couch potato to elite athlete) helping them:
-Evaluate individual health and fitness goals
-Develop a lasting positive attitude about exercise
-Design an individualized exercise program (based on interest and ability) that has guaranteed staying power
-Understand the major factors of fitness including cardiovascular, flexibility, and muscle strength and endurance
-Get in touch with the athlete within and more

Throughout, she offers readable and reliable information on weight loss; nutrition for the active woman; exercise and pregnancy or menopause; training for endurance competition; prevention and treatment of injuries; and dispels dozens of myths about diet and exercise that have pervaded our culture. No woman can afford not to exercise. The Fitness Factor is an important new book will help make fit, healthy living a reality for everyone.
