Ultimate Fitness: The Quest for Truth about Exercise and Health
Gina Kolata (au)
A fascinating journey into the fads, fictions, & innovations that have defined the world of physical fitness. From weight lifting for men & women in the early days, to jogging in the 1970s, cycling in the 1980s, aerobics in the 1990s, & now Spinning, Kolata explains the science of conditioning & the objective evidence behind commonly accepted prescriptions. Profiles those who challenged conventional wisdom & marketed their inventions, & some who resisted initial criticism only to back down from their claims. Includes sketches of those who have influenced the industry: Bernard Macfadden, Jack LaLanne & Johnny G. Presents an eye-opening view of the inside workings of a multimillion-dollar business. Illustrations.
