As a Certified Personal Trainer and Senior Fitness Specialist, I'm always looking for ways to expand my knowledge base, enhance the programs that I deploy with my clients, and better understand the synergy between the variety of elements that go into working with the more mature adult set. I have had the good fortune of sitting in on a webinar with Dr. Westcott and the tenets that he espoused there, coupled with the concepts and manner in which they are presented in this 3rd edition text clearly met my needs. It's a balanced, scientific,well written and easily understandable text. I'd recommend it to any adult who is moving into the second half of their lives and wants to better grasp the importance of maintaining/increasing strength, muscle mass and balance - imperatives for the journey.
