Scientifically Proven Exercise Tips to Help You Beat Holiday Stress, Get Fit, Stay Healthy, and Live Longer

SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Scientific studies have found that exercise can decrease age-related macular degeneration, prevent or delay the onset of high blood pressure, improve your sex life, increase collagen to keep your skin younger, reduce coronary artery disease and stress, and improve overall wellness. In "Faster, Better, Stronger," Eric Heiden, M.D., world-renowned speed skater, cyclist and orthopedic surgeon and his co-authors, outline 10 proven secrets to a healthier body in 12 weeks and highlight scientific research to support their techniques. Geared toward those 30 and above "Faster, Better, Stronger" offers training tips for every lifestyle from sedentary to very active.

"We wanted to offer people of all physical conditions an inexpensive 'personal trainer' that could help them reduce stress and improve their health during these pressure cooker days," says Dr. Heiden. "Exercise, when done properly and in a specific order - combining flexibility, aerobic, strength training and balance - can help you beat weight loss and training plateaus, gain greater exercise benefits in a fraction of the time, live longer and improve your overall quality of life. Exercise really is one of the best prescriptions for staying healthy and this book guides you through the process and benefits, whether you are a competitive athlete or a recovering coach potato."

Drs. Heiden and Massimo Testa met at Stanford University Medical School, where Heiden was a student and Testa his cycling team doctor. The two went on to develop the UC Davis Sports Performance Center and now continue their collaboration at The Orthopedic Specialty Hospital in Salt Lake City and cycling camps in Park City, Utah. Dr. Heiden is practicing orthopedic surgeon, team physician for the U.S. Speed Skating, and team physician and director of sports medicine for USA Cycling. Dr. Testa is one of the foremost cycling trainers and exercise physiologists.

"Using our medical expertise and knowledge of training competitive athletes, we have created a book that offers, simple, understandable and affordable solutions that can be personalized for each and every reader," says Dr. Testa, a co-author. "We offer tips for fitness at the office, on a business trip or in your living room, as well as highlights the prescriptive aspects of exercise, the biology of movement and the importance of motivation."

"Faster, Better, Stronger," offers readers, self-assessment tools, diagrams of innovative exercises, and other straight talk on exercise and your health," says Dr. Heiden. "Whether you are a working parent, a busy single professional, or retiree this book offers realistic and scientifically proven techniques for getting into shape and staying in good health."
