Fit at Mid-Life Summary

Fit at Mid-Life: A Feminist Fitness Journey by Samantha Brennan

"[Fit at Mid-Life] reinforces the message that fitness can and should be for everyone, no matter their age, size, gender, or ability." --SELF

What if you could be fitter now than you were in your twenties? And what if you could achieve it while feeling more comfortable and confident in your body?

In Fit at Mid-Life, bloggers and philosophy professors Samantha Brennan and Tracy Isaacs share the story of how they got the fittest they'd ever been by age 50--and how you can, too. Their approach to fitness is new and different-it champions strength, health, and personal accomplishment over weight loss and aesthetics--and explores the many challenges, questions, and issues women face when seeking fitness in their forties, fifties, and beyond.

Drawing from the latest research, Brennan and Isaac deliver a wealth of concrete advice on everything from how to keep bones strong to what types of fitness activities give the biggest returns.

Taking a feminist perspective, they also challenge society's default whats, whys, and hows of every aspect of getting fit to show how women can best take charge of their health-no matter what their shape, size, age, or ability.

"Fit at Mid-Life combines personal stories with scientific evidence, feminist reflections and how-to advice for both women and men who don't want fitness to fade away in their middle years."--The Toronto Star
