As the Population Ages and Healthcare Concerns Grow, Over 40 No Longer Means "Over The Hill"

A highly acclaimed new book entitled "Fitness at 40, 50, 60 and Beyond" from author/scientist Michael Spitzer gives readers a complete guide to losing weight and improving fitness over age 40.

FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Most of the developed world is experiencing an aging population. In America alone, an estimated 45% of the total population is over the age of 40.

When this aging demographic is combined with the current concerns over healthcare cost and availability, it is easy to see why more individuals are expressing an interest in staying fit as they grow older.

Forty may no longer be considered "over the hill", but numerous special factors must be considered when developing a healthy lifestyle of diet and exercise to keep an aging body functioning in a more youthful manner.

Many fitness books have been published over the years, but very few address the specific needs of individuals 40 years of age and older.

In Fitness at 40, 50, 60 and Beyond, author Michael Spitzer presents a scientifically based program that can transform the body and achieve up to 30 lbs of fat loss in 16 weeks.

Not just another typical diet book, Spitzer explains the effects of aging on the body and offers a 3-step program for fat loss, better muscle tone, greater flexibility and more energy.

Topics covered include ... What to eat, how to exercise, which supplements to take, dealing with joint pain, anxiety, depression, sexual function changes, slowing metabolism, flexibility, lung capacity, bone density, heart health, lower back problems, energy levels and much more.

No hype, no wild claims, no false promises. Citing medical studies and recent scientific research on the aging process, this book "tells it like it is".

A combination of diet, resistance training, and cardiovascular exercise is described in a precise 3-day-per-week plan that can produce impressive body changes in just 4 months.

The 432 page book is illustrated with 260 photographs. Every exercise is clearly described with accompanying photos that demonstrate both proper and improper technique. Diagrams, tables, and charts are also used to explain meal plans, recipes, and other principles. At the end of each chapter, summaries are provided that can be copied and carried for quick, easy reference.

Although written to address the specific issues that concern older individuals, the information provided is useful for people of all ages. In this regard, the book is being considered by some as the "definitive new book for fitness and weight loss".

Mr. Spitzer is available for interviews (newspaper, radio, television, internet) regarding the book as well as society's growing awareness of the fitness potential of older people.

Fitness at 40, 50, 60 and Beyond is available today.

The book can be purchased for $19.95 from the book's website: http://www.highpointproducts.com, as well as Amazon, eBay, and most major book retailers.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
