Fitness-industry veteran Steven Head understands the need for fitness “experts” who are more human than super-hero. With refreshing candor and vulnerability, Steven’s inspiring fusion of memoir and manual, “Not Another Fitness Book,” makes an impassioned plea to the 49 million baby boomers who are currently missing out on the myriad health benefits of regular movement.
In addition to his career as a trainer/coach, now 61, Head has been enjoying a rediscovered passion for Baseball for over two decades. He thought after a high-school shoulder injury, he’d never play ball again. He discovered otherwise at 42, when asked to play in an adult recreational league (for players age 25 and up, and another one for players age 35+). “As adults, we have very few opportunities to be a part of a team, to enjoy the camaraderie. Guys just love it! It reconnects me to the best of my childhood: my father, his support, and love of the game.

“It’s my hope that earning bestseller status will allow me to get the message out there to a much wider audience than I could otherwise. It’s a critical message of strength and health, accessible to folks at an age when many have “given up” and settled for a life of pain and debility.”
His book is receiving rave 5-star reviews on Amazon. Reader Susan Hess says “Nailed it! Wonderfully written from both a professional and personal standpoint. We can all relate to many aspects of Steven Head’s struggles with such great loss in life and how he managed to work through them. He also demonstrates the importance that both fitness and yoga played a role in that process. Clearly his goal in life is to try and help people and we all can gain from his knowledge while reading his book.”
