Once again the the new year comes around and many of us are regretting some of our over indulgences of the last few months. This is the time of year when we make our new resolutions to lose those unwanted pounds and make permanent changes to our lifestyle (hopefully changes that will stick this year).  The library is here to help you with those New Year's resolutions. We have fitness videos, downloadable music, books, cookbooks, downloadable videos, eBooks, etc... all to help motivate you towards your new goals. This year we thought we might go a step further and put you in contact with the fitness organizations in our community. So join us on January 7th from 1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. at KHCPL South to find out some of the health and fitness options Kokomo has to offer.  

While you wait for our event, you can check out some of the fitness resources below, or view even more fitness materials by visiting our list Fitness Resources for 2017.

Books

Features an abundance of information on how to exercise safely and effectively by providing a custom program that is tailored to lifestyles, needs, medical problems, and age, and offering tips on choosing the right equipment, staying motivated, and much more.

 

Between his positive, can-do spirit and practical, brass tacks strategies for getting in shape, it's no wonder that Donovan Green has reached 3.7 million daily viewers via his unique No Excuses platform on DrOz.com. With No Excuses Fitness, Green delivers a comprehensive month-long plan designed to help readers lose 10 pounds in 30 days. Filled with healthy recipes, workouts that can be done anywhere and with minimal equipment, and daily tips for staying focused (especially through plateaus), and featuring a foreword by Dr. Oz's wife Lisa, No Excuses Fitness will inspire and guide anyone interested in losing weight and gaining optimal health.

Women are not small men. Stop eating and training like one. Because most nutrition products and training plans are designed for men, it's no wonder that so many female athletes struggle to reach their full potential. ROAR is a comprehensive, physiology-based nutrition and training guide specifically designed for active women. This book teaches you everything you need to know to adapt your nutrition, hydration, and training to your unique physiology so you can work with, rather than against, your female physiology. Exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist Stacy T. Sims, PhD, shows you how to be your own biohacker to achieve optimum athletic performance. Complete with goal-specific meal plans and nutrient-packed recipes to optimize body composition, ROAR contains personalized nutrition advice for all stages of training and recovery. Customizable meal plans and strengthening exercises come together in a comprehensive plan to build a rock-solid fitness foundation as you build lean muscle where you need it most, strengthen bone, and boost power and endurance. Because women's physiology changes over time, entire chapters are devoted to staying strong and active through pregnancy and menopause. No matter what your sport is running, cycling, field sports, triathlons-this book will empower you with the nutrition and fitness knowledge you need to be in the healthiest, fittest, strongest shape of your life.
