Éditeur : University of California Press, United States

Reliure : Hardback

Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. This lively, inspiring, and informative book zeroes in on the state of American fitness - persistently sedentary, plagued by obesity - and issues a clarion call to action that reaches across economic, racial, and educational lines. Toni Yancey finds that despite our best intentions and repeated resolutions to exercise, as well as a 40-year investment in fitness education and counseling, physical activity in all levels of society continues to plummet. In a warm, reader-friendly narrative that draws on solid scientific research, personal experience, and her own poetry, Yancey calls for a radically different approach: one that respects diversity and is grounded in the cultures of those most at risk. Instant Recess proposes regular ten-minute exercise breaks that utilize music and dance and are easily incorporated into school, work, and community life. Rather than encouraging unhealthful habits like cigarette breaks or high fat snacks, these instant recesses make the active choice the natural one. Here is a new paradigm for fitness and public health that promises vitality, well being, and a greater sense of community - demonstrating, as Yancey argues, that what s good for the waistline is good for the bottom line.

Synopsis : This lively, inspiring, and informative book zeroes in on the state of American fitness - persistently sedentary, plagued by obesity - and issues a clarion call to action that reaches across economic, racial, and educational lines. Toni Yancey finds that despite our best intentions and repeated resolutions to exercise, as well as a 40-year investment in fitness education and counseling, physical activity in all levels of society continues to plummet. In a warm, reader-friendly narrative that draws on solid scientific research, personal experience, and her own poetry, Yancey calls for a radically different approach: one that respects diversity and is grounded in the cultures of those most at risk. "Instant Recess" proposes regular ten-minute exercise breaks that utilize music and dance and are easily incorporated into school, work, and community life. Rather than encouraging unhealthful habits like cigarette breaks or high fat snacks, these 'instant recesses' make the active choice the natural one. Here is a new paradigm for fitness and public health that promises vitality, well being, and a greater sense of community - demonstrating, as Yancey argues, that what's good for the waistline is good for the bottom line.

Critique: "Demonstrates the value of two 10-minute breaks of enjoyable communal activity as part of people's everyday lives." New York Times 20101123 "An accessible aerobics program developed to promote a culture of physical activity at workplaces." Washington Post Book World 20120110 "Makes a compelling case for establishing ten-minute recesses-that is, aerobic breaks-in schools, churches, baseball stadiums, and offices around the country." Booklist 20101001 "Innovative approach for 21st-century fitness... Highly Recommended." Choice 20110627 "It's a how-to-improve-American's-health book. It's a great read for anyone interested in fitness beyond the personal. " Advanceweb.com 20100825 "Instant Recess is a terri?c book, well worth reading... Run, dance, jump or hop to get your copy now." -- Nicholas Freudenberg Preventive Medicine 20120326 "This book offers great, real-world examples that can motivate others to replicate this community approach to fitness." Choice 20110420
