In a quote that surfaces frequently in blogosphere, the Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, reportedly replied: "Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived." As a busy professional, you can no doubt relate. In business, time is money. And it seems the more technology improves to make our lives easier, the less time we seem to spend investing in ourselves. Baby Boomer and Generation X professionals often struggle to find time for fitness among the crush of professional, family and social obligations. As a result, many 40 professionals who once were in great shape are less fit and more stressed than ever. They're wondering how things got this way. That's where Back in the Saddle to Fit: 10 Steps to Reclaiming Athletic Fitness for the Busy Professional comes in. Part informational, part inspirational, the book includes anecdotes from and interviews with past and present athletes - from Olympians Jesse Owens to Sanya Richards-Ross - as well as strategies to find time for exercise from a 40-something marketing professional and certified fitness trainer. Back in the Saddle to Fit includes a fitness plan that requires only 3.5 percent of your time each week. It also discusses the "60/40 Proposition" of nutrition and exercise, and how to "eat like an adult" when faced with unhealthy food options. It also includes tips for achieving six-pack abdominals, even at 40. The book is: For men and women with some exercise experience who have allowed the complexities of life to get you off your game; 50 percent informational regarding exercise and nutrition, and 50 percent motivational - the kick-start to get you going and keep you in the right frame
