With summer here, it's the perfect time to put those New Year's resolutions into effect and take up a fitness program, learn a new sport, or improve your game.

Whatever you choose, from aerobics to yoga, the library has books to get you started.

There are also fitness guides geared to the needs of specific groups--men, women, teens, older adults, people with disabilities--so you can choose one that's right for you.

Videos can be the very best way to teach yourself a new skill, and the library has a broad selection of fitness titles.

If you need a little personal coaching, try audiobooks for instruction or inspiration.

Sports nutrition is another important aspect of fitness. Browse a selection chosen by our Science & Technology Department.

Fitness isn't just about the body. Explore the mental and psychological aspects of sports and fitness.

The library's magazine collections contain many titles that will keep you up to date on the latest fitness and health news.

The government is a major publisher of health and fitness information. The library's Public Documents & Patents Department has many useful titles in its collection.

More than ever, health and fitness are concerns for teens and children, too.

There's a wealth of information on health, sports, and fitness on the Internet. Try a few of these websites to begin your search.

And don't miss the directory of local adult education classes maintained by the library's Education & Religion Department. You can find instructors and fellow enthusiasts for almost any fitness regime you can think of.
