Each month I end up reading a great deal of health and fitness related content for pleasure as well as for my job as Chief Fitness Officer at Koko FitClub. If you’re a health and fitness enthusiast like me then I’m sure you’re doing the same. Here is a partial list from February that may interest you and if not please forward it to someone who shares our interest.
Book: The Diet Fix: Why Diets Fail and How to Make Your Work by Yoni Freedhoff, MD. I was fortunate enough to get an early copy and could not put it down. I have followed Dr. Freedhoff, an obesity expert from Canada, since his early days and his blog, Weighty Matters, can be found here. The book is a must read and prior to reading this I would recommend checking out the book Sugar Blues.
Research Paper: Chronic Exercise Preserves Lean Muscle Mass in Masters Athletes, Andrew Wroblewski, Francis Amati, et al. The Physician and Sports Medicine, 39(3): 172-178, 2011.
Audio Book: The Sports Gene by David Epstein, looking for something to listen to during a business trip or that ride to the office then this is it. Epstein writes for Sports Illustrated and his audio book about the “inside” look at athletic performance is outstanding.
Blog Post: Strength Training as a Base by Paul Romeo, Master FitCoach/Owner, Koko FitClub.
Fitness Magazine: Why Stair-Climbing is Good for Runners by Matthew Solan.
