Stretch and Kvetch:
The Yenta's Guide to No Sweat Exercise

Raye Ann Greenbaum and Jackie Tepper are not doctors, exercise physiologists, nurses, or nutritionists. They're yentas. A yenta is a gabber, a know-it-all, one possessing a busy mind.

According to Greenbaum and Tepper, a busy mind makes a 'busybody.' Consequently, they've created their own tongue-in-cheek guide to exercise, Stretch and Kvetch: The Yenta's Guide to No Sweat Exercise (available in paperback and electronic formats from 1st Books Library). Why lift weights when you can lift a grandchild? Exercises like "The Mah Jongg Stretch," "Eavesdropper's Eye Strengthener and Jowl Firmer Isometrics," "The Cellular of Portable Phone Twist," and "Watch the Grandchildren Stairclimber and Complete Workout" are based on enjoyable and useful activities.

Stretch and Kvetch: The Yenta's Guide to No Sweat Exercise is geared toward anyone fifty or older who wants to be on an exercise program, needs to be on an exercise program, or has tried exercise programs only to find them boring, strenuous, time consuming, and slow to show results.
