You don’t have to be a swimmer or sprightly to experience the joys of water and the benefits of water exercising.
In your own or the local pool, you have the best fitness medium imaginable. The pool is not just for kids to play around in, or for competitive swimmers only. Even if you can’t swim, it’s for you -- a fitness center that comes without embarrassment because you are doing something sensible that looks sensible!
Use the pool as a gym for:
ü general day-by-day fitness
ü body building -- using even only old socks on your hands or feet!
ü sports training and injury recovery
ü pregnancy – gentle yet great-flexibility help
ü aches and pains relief -- no matter what your age
Or, simply to feel good. Or, going one step further: to get back to feeling good!
Water exercising is also great fun: Do it to music. Do it in pairs or groups, or just indulge yourself. Get strong or try slimming with it. If you push against water, you will meet a smooth resistance that gives back what you put in. You feel that special ‘soft’ resistance that only water gives so soothingly and relaxingly. So, use it to benefit yourself or your loved ones or friends. Water is the only fitness ‘apparatus’ you need have.
Be your own coach in your own pool.
Although there's no shortage of books that offer advice about getting in shape, there are none that address the real hidden blocks that will often prevent your success. Michael Gerrish's When Working Out Isn't Working Out is a cutting-edge fitness guide, geared to supply the clues you need to reveal and move past UFOs (Unidentified Fitness Obstacles). By providing a wealth of little-known facts and self-diagnostic tests, this book helps you find the missing links in your quest to be optimally fit, including:
-How family and cultural influences can affect how you view getting fit
-How food and chemical allergies limit your energy, weight loss, and strength
-How common disorders (SAD, ADD, depression) can often be UFOs
-How your emotional history can be a barrier to improved health
-How diet and exercise fallacies can keep you from reaching your goals. . .

The Power of 10 seems to contradict nearly everything we're accustomed to hearing about exercise. Forget hours on the treadmill, and forget daily visits to the gym. This new program offers 20 minute workout sessions, once or twice per week, with an alluring emphasis on rest and recovery on your days off. The principle behind The Power of 10 is simple: by lifting weights in slow motion, making each rep last 20 seconds (10 seconds lifting and 10 seconds lowering) instead of the typical 7 seconds, you can maximize muscle transformation. The short workouts are so effective that your body will need days to recover and repair properly. Studies have shown that such routines can increase lean body mass, help burn calories more efficiently, and prevent cardio–vascular disease more effectively than aerobic exercise alone.

Instead of empowering patients to know more about their illnesses, doctors have instilled fear in them and prescribed unnecessary drugs, tests, and surgeries to justify large medical bills and make the drug companies obscenely wealthy. Doctors get paid well at our expense (body and wallet).
Most of my patients have benefited greatly from my extensive education, deep-rooted culture, diverse background, and utmost honesty in teaching them about medicine the way it should be taught (basic and true), and it was through their inspiration that I wrote this book. In truth I feel I had no choice. No doctor would dare expose the awful truth regarding our broken medical system for fear their financial status will be compromised. My ultimate intention is to help every person maintain an independent mind and body until they breathe their last breath with dignity.
Despite all the care available to us, our society is more concerned about health than ever. Increased technology and access to health care give us the illusion of control but can never deliver us from the limitations of our bodies.
But what if our health is a gift to nurture, rather than a possession to protect? Drawing from decades of medical experience in many different contexts, Dr. Bob Cutillo helps us cultivate a biblical understanding of the relationship between faith and health in the modern age, reorienting us to a wiser pursuit of health for the good of all. Weaving in his own story of serving the most vulnerable, he leads us to a bigger view of health care and a hope that is more secure than our physical wellness—hope with the power to transform our communities.
