For people who need epidemiological studies to convince them to move for health. Would recommend Katy Bowman’s books for people looking for more detailed biomechanical explanations, philosophy, and practical advice. Both authors provide different styles for the same message.

In this book, Dr. Joan shares the latest findings (citing many studies) on the “Sitting Kills” topic and she also weighs in on the difference between “Health” and “Fitness”. There is a chapter on how to incorporate simpl
