                                     joy, men and women have to be fit. In Fit to Live, Dr. Pam Peeke crushes the
                                      old stereotype of how most people defined ‘fit’. She shows readers that it’s not
                                      just about the size of your biceps, but the strength of your mental and spiri-
                                      tual muscles as well.”       —Kenneth Cooper, MD, founder and president of Cooper Aerobics Center in Dallas

                                  nection between expanding waistlines and the effects on mind and body. Using
                                 accessible tools, Dr. Peeke shows men and women how to transition from survival
                                 to enjoyment mode by learning how to adapt and adjust to life’s challenges. The
                                 gift she offers is an integrative lifestyle of sustainable joy and optimal wellness.”
