“Jim Owen, whose book “Just Move! A New Approach to Fitness After 50” ($22.99, National Geographic) just hit bookstore shelves, has a simple message for those of us over 50: Quit sitting around so much.” –Austin American Statesman
“No matter what your current level of physical activity is, this guide can get you moving more and feeling better.” –SeniorHomes.com
“The book is well-written, entertaining and educational at the same time, and amply illustrated with charts and graphics that reinforce the text. Owen also covers important peripheral topics such as nutrition, choice of footwear, types of exercise equipment, and the comparative benefits of working out at home versus a gym.” –50 Forte
“Owens shares how to put his fitness principles into practice. The former self-described “certified couch potato,” who never misses an opportunity to move, was dancing as he chatted.” –Get Old“
According to Owen, cardio work alone isn’t enough. Core work, flexibility, balance and strength training are essential, too. And no amount of exercise will make up for a poor diet.” –Star Tribune
