Who says getting fit has to be a chore? Motivating yourself to move your body every day can make all the difference to living a vital, happy life. It’s especially important for people 50+, since most aging symptoms are caused by inactivity. This empowering book will inspire you to get off the couch and try new activities you enjoy. When you do, you’ll gain these and other benefits: reduced stress, more energy, better sleep, weight loss, increase muscle mass, improved brain functioning and a lower risk of most chronic diseases.
The second half of life really can be the best half, but it’s up to you. If you are having fun getting fit, your life will become more fun too, since you’ll have the energy to enjoy your life to the fullest!
Here are a few of my favorite reviews from Amazon:
“I hit the big 70 a couple of months ago and did a bit of a “me” inventory. Ok for 70…but a far cry from my prime. One of the biggest changes has been my loss of discipline in keeping fit…my old run/stretch/lift routine. I had cancer surgery some time ago and kind of got out of the daily habit of investing in my fitness. SOOOO…along comes this new book from Sharkie Zartman. I open it up and it reminds me of all the things I need to do for me…IF I want to get fit and stay that way as I geezer up. She makes it simple. She gives me encouragement. She challenges me. It is a quick and easy read…I love it. Thanks to the author for getting me off my large resting area and getting back on the track. I will be the better for having read this terrific book.”–Donald Hurzeler
“As a fitness professional I can definitely attest to the comprehensive nature and flow of this book. In a sea of seemingly endless pseudoprofessionals and information overload, Sharkie clearly defines what we should and should not do to easily incorporate health and fitness into our busy lives and embrace our youth well into our older years.
You need not read tons of books and hire expensive professionals when you have an amazing tool such as this book which lays down the foundation and walks you down the path to vitality and minimization of stress.
I was fortunate to have met Sharkie and her spunk and contagious positive energy is captured in these pages and is her gift to share with you. So do yourself a favor and unwrap this gift and absorb all the wisdom it has to offer which is sure to enrich you for a lifetime!” —Jennie L
“With more than 30 years of experience as a martial artist and yoga practitioner, I know how important it is develop a fit lifestyle. Zartman does a fantastic job of demonstrating that there is no one-size fits all formula for fitness. Our age, gender, body type, interests and goals impact the type of activities that we would find engaging and impactful. Have Fun Getting Fit offers motivational, informative and practical insights for creating an active lifestyle. This book shows that when we develop a commitment to fitness that resonates with who we are and what we want to accomplish, staying fit can be Fun! I love the Pep Talks at the end of each chapter. You’ll want to read them over and over again.”–Merrick Rosenberg, author of The Chameleonon
