Description:
Originally published: Boston: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
Sports are about challenging our physical limits. But the greatest limit of all remains undefeated: age. We're taught to believe that aging thwarts effort and grace, talent and grit, outstanding teamwork and individual brilliance. But a new breed of top professionals - the likes of Roger Federer, Tom Brady and Ryan Giggs - are overturning long-held assumptions about how long the prime of a sporting career can last. It's not that aging causes a decline in fitness; rather, a decline in fitness causes aging. Jeff Bercovici steps inside the lives of such ageless athletes, following them as they train, compete, and recover, to dispel conventional wisdom about longevity. Full of cutting-edge science, technology and practical tips 'Play On' will fascinate and empower you to be your best, whatever your age.
