Do it for a better body and mind.

Do it for a longer and healthier life.

Do it for yourself.

No stress. No strain. No sweat.

We all know that exercise is essential to good health, but hitting the gym is the last thing you feel like doing at the end of a long day.

The good news is that you don't have to! You can get the health benefits you need without breaking a sweat. How? You'll find the answers in The No Sweat Exercise Plan by Harvey B. Simon, M.D.

For more than thirty years, Dr. Simon, a founding member of the Harvard Cardiovascular Health Center, has been researching the best ways to keep his patients healthy and happy. For much of that time, he advocated intense aerobic exercise as the only way to stay well.

He has now learned that the truth is a lot simpler. The latest scientific studies show conclusively that you can get the health benefits of exercise with only slight modifications to your daily routine. It doesn't have to take extra time. It doesn't have to be dull. And you don't have to work out until you ache.

But there is one catch: one size does not fit all. For you to really benefit from exercise, you must first assess your current health needs and the demands of your daily routines. Only then can you develop a no sweat health plan that will keep you fit -- and fit into your life.

The No Sweat Exercise Plan gives you everything you need to develop the perfect plan for you, including:

  • An easy-to-follow point system that enables you to measure and maximize the health benefits of everyday activities such as gardening, housework, climbing stairs, walking, or raking leaves.

  • Self-assessment tests that help you evaluate your present physical level and learn how to reach your health goals.

  • Nutrition and preventive health-care tips that protect against countless medical problems.

You'll feel energized, inside and out, while you increase your stamina, reduce stress, and increase your odds of living longer and better. Throw away the sweatbands, read The No Sweat Exercise Plan, and you're on your way.
