Book Synopsis

Fit for Flight:  The purpose of this book is to provide you with basic
guidelines for developing a balanced physical fitness program
and customizing a workout to fit your needs. We recommend that
you consult a physician before starting any type of physical fitness
program. Additionally, an exercise physiologist or professional
trainer can help you personalize a specific fitness program.
Benefits of Being Physically Fit
“Use it or lose it!” That old saying not only relates to certain flying
skills but also to the human body. Muscles that aren’t used tend
to atrophy and weaken. To keep muscles and the cardiovascular
system working at their optimum levels, they must be stimulated
and utilized. Being more physically fit will generally make you look and feel better. Additionally, people that carry too much weight or are bordering on obesity often encounter many health-related problems, ranging from chronic backaches to advanced cardiovascular disease. Finally, a high level of personal fitness can help you to cope with the various emotional and physical stressors that are encountered in the flight environment.

    I was very dissatisfied with my money spent on this book. I was hoping to get an in depth workout program that could help a pilot that would be traveling often. Instead it was a brochure encouraging pilots to stay fit.
