Fitness at 40, 50, 60 and Beyond Reveals the Scientific Truth About Weight Loss and Fitness for People Over Age 40


Weston, FL (PRWEB) July 09, 2014

Over 40 no longer means over the hill for a growing number of people who have learned to keep their weight down and their energy levels up as they age.

While 40 may no longer be considered “over the hill” as it was in the past, numerous factors must be considered to keep an aging body functioning in a healthy and more youthful manner.

In Fitness at 40, 50, 60 and Beyond, author Michael Spitzer presents a scientifically based program that can transform the body and achieve 30 lbs of fat loss in 16 weeks.

Not just another typical diet book, Spitzer explains the effects of aging on the body and offers a program for fat loss, better muscle tone, greater flexibility and more energy.

Topics covered include: what to eat; how to exercise; which supplements to take; dealing with joint pain, anxiety, depression, sexual function changes, slowing metabolism, flexibility, lung capacity, bone density, heart health, lower back problems, energy levels and much more.

No hype, no wild claims, no false promises.

Citing medical studies and recent scientific research on the aging process, this book “tells it like it is”. The program described produces impressive body changes in just 4 months.

The 432-page book is illustrated with 260 photographs.

Diagrams, tables, and charts are used to explain meal plans, recipes, and other principles. Every exercise is clearly described with accompanying photos that demonstrate both proper and improper technique. At the end of each chapter, summaries are provided that can be copied and carried for quick, easy reference.

Although written to address the specific issues that concern older individuals, the diet and exercise advice provided is useful for people of all ages. In this regard, the book is being considered by many as the “definitive new book for fitness and weight loss”.

Mr. Spitzer is available for interviews regarding the book as well as society’s changing attitude about the fitness potential of older individuals.

Fitness at 40, 50, 60 and Beyond is available today.

The book can be purchased for $ 17.95 from the book’s website: http://www.highpointproducts.com, as well as Amazon, eBay, and most major book retailers.

VIF Dual Language Students Consistently Excel in N.C. End-of-Grade Tests


Chapel Hill, N.C. (PRWEB) September 18, 2014

VIF International Education, the leading provider of global education programs for K-12 schools, announced this week that its Splash Language Immersion students outperformed peers on North Carolina End-of-Grade (EOG) tests for the fourth year in a row. Based on 2013-14 results, the state’s Splash students are exceeding their peers’ test scores by more than 20 percent in reading, 27 percent in math and 13 percent in science on average.

Splash student achievement has remained consistent over time. In the 2011-12 school year, 94 percent of Splash students were proficient in math and 86 percent were proficient in reading, while their non-Splash counterparts averaged 82 percent in math and 65 percent in reading. Dual language students enrolled in VIF’s Splash programs also excelled in the 2012-13 school year, boasting 67 and 60 percent passing rates in math and reading, respectively, while their non-Splash peers averaged a 30 percent passing rate in math and 28 percent in reading. All scores remain notable even as new Common Core-aligned testing methods rolled out in the 2012-13 school year.

This year’s results confirm the benefits of VIF’s unique dual language program model. High academic achievement, language proficiency, increased critical thinking skills, accelerated cognitive development and greater cultural sensitivity all result from students’ involvement in the intense language acquisition and intercultural explorations offered by Splash programs.

“We are thrilled to see these achievements from our Splash students. Targeted language learning and cultural competence in diverse classrooms consistently supports student proficiency in a variety of subject areas and helps them develop skills they need to compete in today’s global society,” said VIF CEO David Young.

The positive impacts of hosting Splash programs extend to entire school communities through school-wide access to Global Gateway, VIF’s online system for global professional development and curriculum. Teachers outside of Splash gain access to professional learning opportunities and a robust library of classroom resources and, as a result, learn how to introduce global themes and cultural exploration into their core instruction to broaden the minds and capture the imaginations of their students.

VIF provides comprehensive, turnkey support services to districts that want to bring the benefits of dual language programs to their communities. In Splash Language Immersion classrooms, up to 90 percent of core subject matter is taught in a target language, either Spanish or Mandarin. The majority of VIF’s Splash programs are offered in Title 1 schools, and close to 20 percent of schools are two-way immersion programs, serving both Spanish- and English-speaking communities.

Currently, VIF offers 46 dual language programs across the state. The application process to become a Splash school for the 2015-16 school year is already in progress, and interest across North Carolina indicates that more and more students will have vital opportunities to increase their global competency while becoming bilingual and biliterate.
