What if your lack of mobility isn't due to your age, but simply the number of years you haven't been moving well? Dynamic Aging presents a new paradigm in senior fitness: your age isn't responsible for your lack of mobility; your habits are! In this powerful and effective guide to moving better, geared specifically for those 50-plus, biomechanist and movement teacher Katy Bowman details how readers can regain their balance, maintain their ability to drive, keep their feet healthy and functional, and regain mobility and reduce pain throughout their bodies. Bowman's exercises are straightforward, require no special equipment, and include modifications for readers of all fitness levels. To combat the idea of being 'too old' to make great improvements, Dynamic Aging is filled with stories and advice from four septuagenarians who have been following Bowman's program for a decade, avoiding surgeries, eliminating pain, and regaining freedom and ease in their bodies they thought they had lost permanently to "old age." From hiking mountains to climbing ladders and walking on cobblestones with ease, each of these women embodies the book's message: No matter where you're starting, if you change how you move, you can change how you feel.

A good book for those who have not been active in their middle years, but I began running and strength training in my middle years and remain very active to this day. my problem has been not being proactive with stretching and has resulted in the last year with foot pain. Right at the very start this book provided me with a great foot stretch which has already helped and I found 5 other stretches. So my point is I recommend this book for anybody in their middle years and up.

This is better as a physical book rather than an e-book. You want to hold the book and be able to put it down and pick it up easily while trying the exercises. Not as easy with a device. But if e-book is the only copy you can find, definitely try it! Increased mobility and stability are only two of the benefits gained from the approaches in Katy Bowman's book for 'goldeners'.

Only niggle with the physical publication is the text is way too big and I know at least one over-70 person found it patronising, though I think the intention was for the text to be accessible.
