As Dr. Jordan Metzl says, “Exercise is medicine.” Now he puts that philosophy—along with cutting-edge research and a motivational bedside manner—into a groundbreaking book delivering a head-to-toe list of maladies that affect quality of life for millions. He then offers the specific exercise prescriptions that will help fix them—from type 2 diabetes to depression, from arthritic joints to PMS, from addiction to sleep apnea.
The Exercise Cure received an amazing amount of publicity in hardcover for its simple approach to weight loss and better health for everyone. The book offers an exhaustive (and exhausting) collection of fun, fat-torching, life-changing workouts that can be tailored to any fitness level.
“Doctors have long focused on the treatment of disease. Now we have a manual that highlights a means of prevention. As Dr. Metzl touts, exercise is one of the world’s most effective medicines.” —Sanjay Gupta, MD, chief medical correspondent, CNN
