Marilyn Moffat’s new book, Age-Defying Fitness (Peachtree Publishers), co-authored with physical therapist Carole B. Lewis, an adjunct professor at George Washington University, posits that “the antidote to aging is activity. Inactivity magnifies age-related changes, but action maintains and increases your abilities in all five domains.”

The book provides “the ingredients to help you make the most of your body for the rest of your life: a quick quiz and a five-part test to assess the status of your posture, strength, balance, flexibility and endurance, followed by five chapters with step-by-step instructions on how to safely improve the areas in which you are lacking,” the New York Times reports in the Dec. 19 edition of its “Science Times” section.
