One of the most popular fitness e-books on the internet today is the ‘Fit Over 40’ eBook. Written by self confessed former-fatty Jon Benson, the book starts out by empathising with the reader, for Jon admits that he struggled badly to transform his body and mind to become the fit and healthy person he is today. I found this to be very motivational as I knew that Jon faced the same trials and tribulations that I faced, and he overcame them!
Motivation is one of the key factors in successful weight loss, and Fit Over 40 delivers it in spades. It does this by cataloguing the experiences of a whole range of people over the age of 40, a total of 52 people in fact, and giving the reader an insight into what problems each of them faced, and the techniques they used to overcome them. If you are worried that you wont be able to emulate some of their successes, keep in mind that some of them are well into their 70’s so age is no excuse!
Fit Over 40 teaches you how to set your goals appropriately if you are to achieve the same levels of fitness as people in the book. It teaches you that you don’t need to set unrealistic and unachievable goals of many pro-athletes in order for them to get in great shape.
Uniquely, Fit Over 40 goes further than just telling you how to lose weight. It acknowledges the fact that its target readership is also starting to slow down as they age. Therefore, it, very successfully in my opinion, offers good advice on how to address the aging process that occurs to all of us as we grow older. Co-author Tom Venuto takes over at this point and concentrates on weight and strength training, aerobic training, nutrition for a healthy lifestyle and recovery and renewal. He also takes time to explain the importance of a positive mental attitude and how to achieve one.
Fit Over 40 isn’t just another diet guide, or set of exercises – its a whole lifestyle plan for the over 40’s. But, whether you are over 40, or even half that age, the advice and motivation passed on through this book will change your life for better.
