1: Portraits of Senior Athletes by Etta Clark (1-Mar-1989) Paperback. A great illustration of fit senior citizens - we should all strive to be like these folks. My Mom bought this book when it was first published mainly because the 'cover boy' was our neighbor.

Insiprational - Aging is inevitable, but the athletes pictured in these pages inspired me to keep after the work it takes to age well.

This collection of photographs of senior athletes, age fifty or over, forms an inspiring and refreshing portrait of old age. Hang-gliders, wind surfers, marathon runners, distance swimmers, and weight-lifters, her subjects exude a fierce and tenacious energy through bodies and faces that are both strong and obviously aged. Etta Clark, using a blend of instinct and calculation, has shown us a collection of beautiful people who have an almost pagan appetite for the physical. They are like rare antiques, polished and restored for our new enjoyment.

Etta Clark does an outstanding job showing us that old age can be entered into gracefully; the pictures and bio info are great. Inspirational! By Thriftbooks. com User, May 24, 2003. Looking through this book, I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the aging body, as well as inspired that getting older does not mean frailty and inactivity, but independence and renewed energy. Everyone of us can strive to be our best, no matter what activity we choose, from surfing to swimming, dancing and senior olympic sports, to body building

Healthy old people die from falling As our patients say, getting old is not for sissies. In light of Wes Matthews and other NBA athletes suffering Achilles ruptures, Dr. Stone speaks to Mavs Moneyball, a Dallas Mavericks community.

Healthy old people die from falling. They trip, break their hip and then have a mortality rate of up to 58% in the first year. These days, there are lots of devices and apps to monitor elderly and frail people and help them if they fall, but by then it is too late. As we age, we develop three major physical weaknesses: Weak muscles, weak bones and poor balance. As our patients say, getting old is not for sissies. Go offsite to read the full article.

What an inspiration! I wasn't excited about this book when I was younger, but now that I'm working out and training to compete in fencing tournaments at a relatively ridiculous age, I really identify with the athletes pictured. I'd love to meet some of them. The cover guy must be a real character!
Mr.Death
Yes! You must read this book. Inspiring for all ages!

This is a vintage gift book for a vintage guy. I have remembered this book since I first saw it years ago and was glad to have found it. My seven decades now make me appreciate it more than ever.

This book will give anyone saying "I'm too old for that" a swift kick in the bejeezus. The beauty of the photos lies not in the pieced together products of plastic enhancement, nor a silly striving towards unnatural physical imagery, but a steering towards excellence with a natural grace, not contingent upon the looks factor but upon the look what's possible factor. A book full of eye-popping eye candy for the 20-40 something set. "I can" is so much more explicit in this book than just "I wish I could". Get the book, then get a life! I so recommend both.

I have had this book for many years and have bought a number of copies for athletic friends on their birthdays as they grow older.
I'm not afraid to get old - love each year I'm granted and will be tickled to be with the Lord when it's my time....but I'm NOT gonna be one of those sickies who live on pills and their whole lives are slaves to all their different doctors!

If we can prevent some illnesses and wearing down of our bodies just by USING them - and we CAN - then why not? There are no rules on when you get old you can't work out or run, paddle, ski, wheel, bike, or whatever you want to do....

this book (and the next one in the series) is awesome for that motivational push!
If they can, I can...and if I can...you can!
