Weapons of Fitness: The Women's Ultimate Guide to Fitness, Self-Defense, and Empowerment
A groundbreaking self-defense and fitness book for women by a ballerina turned self-defense expert. Avital Zeisler was a ballerina in Canada when she was savagely attacked by a larger, stronger man. For months afterward she lived in fear, until finally, she decided to take matters into her own hands and began self-defense training with professionals from around the world. She studied with military personnel, martial arts experts, and security specialists, and even became the first international woman to graduate from the Israeli Krav Maga Association. However, she quickly realized none of these self-defense programs took into account the extra difficulties that women in particular can face when being attacked. As a woman, what should you do if your attacker is one hundred pounds heavier and much stronger than you, and is slow to react to pain due to drug or alcohol consumption? Zeisler realized women needed a program designed specifically for them. Using her personal experience as a driving force and the methods she'd studied as a base, she came up with a self-defense system tailored for women. She called it the Soteria Method, after the Greek goddess of safety. Women flocked to her classes to learn how to defend themselves in any situation by turning their own bodies into weapons. Often petite or concerned about being 'weak,' after Zeisler's class these women soon exulted in their ability to protect themselves. Now, Zeilser offers you her groundbreaking program. Unique and powerful, Weapons of Fitness provides you with: a six-week program to teach you moves with which to defend yourself in any situation - and get you into the best shape of your life an explanation of the principles and practice of street fighting an introduction to the tools that will raise your situational awareness without leaving you paranoid - so that you can live a confident, empowered life a new definition of self-defense As Zeisler learned, the smarter and more targeted her training, the stronger and more confident she became. Zeisler's system brings you her unique and exclusive method of self-defense, fitness, and empowerment, giving you a sense of comfort and power in any situation while also allowing you to let your guard down, both physically and emotionally.
I'm Still Here: A New Philosophy of Alzheimer's Care
As many as five million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease, and people often live with it for more than a decade. During that time, caregivers can have a vibrant and meaningful relationship with the person who suffers from the disease. I'm Still Here focuses on connecting with someone with Alzheimer's through their abilities that don't diminish with time, such as understanding music, art, facial expressions, and touch. John Zeisel, an innovator in non-pharmacologic approaches to treating Alzheimer's, shows that people with the disease are highly creative and emotionally intelligent. By harnessing these capacities, and by using other strategies, it's possible to offer the person a quality life with connection to others and to the world.
The Calorie Myth
Contrary to what most diets would have you believe, the human body does not recognize all calories as equal. Some foods are used to boost brain power, fuel metabolism, and heal the body--while others are simply stored as fat. In The Calorie Myth, Bailor shows us how eating more of the right kinds of foods and exercising less, but at a higher intensity, is the true formula for burning fat. Why? Because eating high-quality foods balances the hormones that regulate our metabolism. When we eat these foods, our bodies naturally maintain a healthy weight. But when we eat sugar, starches, processed fats, and other poor-quality foods, the body's regulatory system becomes "clogged" and prevents us from burning extra calories. Translation: Those extra 10 pounds aren't the result of eating too much . . . they're the result of eating the wrong foods! Bailor offers clear, comprehensive guidance on what to eat and why, providing an eating plan, recipes, and a simple yet effective exercise regimen. Losing weight doesn't have to mean going hungry or spending hours at the gym. The Calorie Myth offers a radical and effective new model for weight loss and long-term health.
