Ok, you have just hit 30, or even 40 or 50, what's next? Do you simply accept that aging and becoming infirm is inevitable or do you get up off your backside and do something about it? For me, growing old and infirm has never been an option. I watched my grandparents; uncles & aunts and parents all suffer from declining health and loss of mobility due to inactivity. As an adult, reaching 30 and 40 years of age, I was shocked to discover that most of my former school mates had turned into old men and women. Not for me! I made the decision to stay active, healthy, fit and strong for as long as I possibly could and so the essence of this book was born.
