Dynamic Health, first published in 1997, is a classic on learning how to get fit and healthy ... and then stay well for life. Used by athletes and the totally unfit alike, it is considered one of the most practical, easy-to-understand, and effective courses in the art of healthy living.
Author David Hegarty, a lively 68 year-old, has gathered 48 years of experience in the fitness industry into a highly readable and useful course.
This book, used by David on his own workshops and seminars, shows you how to use your personal resources for increased energy, less stress and for losing excess fat.
In simple no-jargon language David shows you how to use your food for trim health, how to exercise in the car, the kitchen, or even gym. He also teaches you practical meditation to improve your concentration, still your mind, and sooth your nervous system.
Dynamic Health assumes nothing. Starting at the beginning, the author shows the importance of correct posture and breathing ... two practices that determine the effectiveness of every other aspect of a fitness programme.
David has helped numerous people, including professional athletes, to improve their mental and physical performance by showing them how to use the full capacity of their lungs to fuel their muscles with oxygen.
The book makes clear that the development of fitness takes place when the body is repairing itself ... when oxygen and nutrients kick in to repair and strengthen tissues that have been broken down during training. It shows you how to maximise the part that rest plays in a programme.
David's technique to calm the mind and soothe the emotions is simple and well-tested. Learning how to do it is an enjoyable exercise, and it is so effective in handling stress that it has been adopted by the corporate world as a standard practice.
Dynamic Health can be used to very good effect by anyone, athlete or not. Many people who hate the idea of training or dieting, DO realise that they need to be in SOME kind of decent shape to function efficiently. The methods shown in this book allow them to do just that.
They learn how to get fundamentally fit, have more energy, and trim a bulging waistline. At sixty eight, David practices what he preaches, and has many clients in their 40s, 50s 60s and 70s who thought they had seen the last of their youthful energy. These men and women are now enjoying sound health and a rich vitality.
David’s approach is that most of us have all the energy that we need; but we need to do is learn how to use it, rather than waste it. This technique in itself has been a revelation to a great many readers.
Food use is dealt with too, not as some kind of instant crash diet that depletes the system, but in such a way that anyone can live, eat really well, and enjoy natural energy, health and improved concentration.
Most people find that Dynamic Health can be dipped into, reread with benefit, and that the more you do of the simple techniques, the better you get at them, which in turn makes them more effective, and enjoyable.
Many of these simple techniques are used in Holistic Management, a system David teaches to companies. This is performance based, so that people learn how to get more from themselves with less wear and tear once they see themselves as the instruments of their own performance. When these instruments are in tune, on song, and connected, they can access the abilities and resources that are within us all.
Most people find this book helps them feel better, be fitter, and live with optimum health and energy. So, if you want to enjoy life to the full, , David Hegarty's Dynamic Health is the book for you.
