USC alumna’s fitness book promotes injury-free exercise

Promoting the idea that excellent health cannot be bought but can be earned, USC alumna Ronda Spinak has co-authored a book designed to help people avoid injury while they get into shape.

Called ProBodX—Proper Body Exercise: The Path to True Fitness, the book explains a fitness and diet program that grew out of a collaboration between Marv Marinovich, a professional athletic trainer, and Edythe Heus, a sports medicine physician who discovered that athletes frequently came back stronger and performed better in their sport after recovering from injuries.

Spinak said, “Many people engage in programs thinking they’re going to feel better, move better and be healthier. They’re often disappointed. In fact, conditioning programs often cause injury.”

The book describes ways people undergoing physical training can improve their flexibility, endurance, strength and energy while alleviating chronic aches and pains and avoiding new injury.

ProBodX—Proper Body Exercise: The Path to True Fitness is due out shortly from HarperCollins, Spinak said.
