This book is part of a series designed to provide exercise rehabilitation alternatives for people who live with chronic medical conditions. Each book details the most beneficial activities and exercises for particular disabilities. In each book readers will find: an explanation of the chronic medical condition; essentials on tailoring an exercise programme to fit individual capabilities; guidelines for safe exercise; four complete exercise programmes (for walking, stationary cycling, jogging and the Schwinn Air-Dyne); and a Health Points System to help patients maintain motivation and gauge their progress. The Health Points System helps exercisers monitor their long-term progress. Points are received for levels of exercise and workout intensities as shown on the Health Points Chart. Exercisers then tally their points each week to determine the effectiveness of their efforts. Charts for many additional aerobic exercise activities are provided so readers can add variety to the exercise routines.

"For those that have Chronic Fatigue and nothing has helped or who have made very little progress toward recovery, this book offers great promise".
Fred Nelson Director National Foundation for the Chemically Hypersensitive
"Dr. Gordon is to be congratulated for writing Chronic Fatigue: Your Complete Exercise Guide. This complex and poorly understood health problem cuases a great deal of disability and markedly reduces the quality of life for millions of people. . .. The sensible exercise program outlined by Dr. Gordon can help stabilize or reverse this downward spiral, and can restore some function for many patients. Much remains to be learned about chronic fatigue syndrome, and the type and amount of physical activity that is most beneficial. Dr. Gordon's book is an excellent set of guidelines that can be applied now to help these patients."
