Age is Just a Number

What a 97 year old record breaker can teach us about growing older

By Charles Eugster

  • Paperback
  • £13.99

A remarkable memoir and guide to healthy ageing from a 97 year-old record-breaker.

Retired dental surgeon Charles Eugster rekindled a love of competitive rowing he'd neglected for most of his adult life at the age of 63. He took up bodybuilding at the age of 87. And at the age of 95 he started sprinting for the first time in his life, becoming World Champion at 200m indoor and 400m outdoor. He is a world record holder for his age group in a number of sports, and has 40 Gold Medals for World Masters Rowing.

In this book, Charles shares his journey and his passionate belief that growing older needn't slow you down. And he shows his readers how taking on new challenges, learning new things, and improving your body as it ages is not only fun, but rewarding for the individual, and beneficial to society.

The Cut

Morris Chestnut, Obi Obadike
Authors:
Morris Chestnut, Obi Obadike

When Morris Chestnut hit the media circuit to promote his latest blockbuster movie The Best Man Holiday, hosts and producers didn't want to hear about the movie as much as they wanted to talk about his incredible transformation into a buff, Hollywood sex symbol. The truth is that not long before shooting that film, Morris was in the worst shape of his life--30 pounds heavier than he should have been, avoiding the gym, and frequenting the drive-through. He turned to celebrity trainer Obi Obadike to help him turn things around in time for the movie, and the results were astounding. Morris went from 220-pounds to a ripped 187-pounds in just 12 weeks, and audiences haven't stopped raving about his new look--or asking how he achieved it!Now Morris and Obi are teaming up to share this groundbreaking and accessible program with fans nationwide. Backed by the latest cutting-edge nutrition science and featuring Obi's trademark fat-burning exercise program, THE CUT is designed to help readers drop pounds quickly - up to 10 pounds in 10 days and 40 pounds in 12 weeks- without stalling on the scale. Featuring Morris's personal exercise and diet plan as well as success stories from dozens of everyday people who have lost weight and kept it off, this book is a life-changer that will help readers reclaim their bodies and their lives, for good.

The Stay Strong Mummy Fitness Plan

Kimberley Welman, Victoria Reihana
Authors:
Kimberley Welman, Victoria Reihana

Exhausted. Frazzled. Worn out. This is how Kimberley Welman felt after giving birth to three babies, including twins, within 19 months. Once a marathon runner, Kimberley could barely jog around the block without wanting to keel over, but she knew she had to do something. Her health and sanity were at stake.With no clear sense of where to begin, Kimberley tried CrossFit (expensive), classes at her gym (hard to get to), running (too hard on her recovering body). Months later, she finally found a training partner in fellow mother Victoria Reihana, and discovered the joys of clean eating and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). What began as one mother's mission to get her body back, has become a global movement and ever-expanding online community, full of women (with and without children) motivating one another to live healthier lives. Featuring recipes, exercise routines and inspirational advice, The Stay Strong Mummy Fitness Plan will fill the mother-shaped hole in the current fitness landscape.
