HERMOSA BEACH, Calif., Jan. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- If we are lucky, we have the opportunity to grow older. But growing older with gusto is not a matter of luck; it must be done intentionally by following the best information available on such things as brain health, nutrition, retaining body muscle, and keeping joints in good repair and our relationships on solid footing. Empowered Aging: Expert Advice on Staying Healthy, Vital and Active (Spoilers Press-2018), is positioned to be the go-to guide for people 40 and up who want to keep their bodies and spirits humming as long as possible.
Edited by Sharkie Zartman, a wellness expert, coach and athlete who contributed her own chapter, Empowered Aging is a compilation of the best advice from a variety of leading experts. Among them are orthopedic surgeon William Stetson, who writes about advice for aging joints; Dr. Thomas Storer, a chief exercise physiologist who offers advice for taking care of one's muscles; and Mylaine Riobe, M.D., who explains why integrative medicine is the missing link to successful aging.
As a professor, Sharkie has taught or coached more than 40,000 students and athletes in the areas of health, fitness and sports and she says working with this high caliber group of authors on the book was as satisfying as winning any championship.
