UPDATE: Meet the author! Listen to author Cheryl Ilov as she is interviewed by The Daily Author LIVE at 2PM MT TODAY!

Cheryl Ilov has always been drawn to health and wellness, the biological sciences, and movement arts, including classical ballet. She began her professional life as a respiratory therapist, and after seventeen years of practice, she returned to school and earned her master’s degree in physical therapy in 1996.

Cheryl discovered The Pilates Method in 1983, and once she began working as a physical therapist, she made the connection that Pilates presented a wonderful tool to help people of all ages recover from injuries and illnesses. She immediately began applying the principles of Pilates to her patients to improve their quality of life and level of function. In 1999, she founded Ilov Integrated Arts, specializing in Pilates-based rehabilitation. Cheryl had her first experience with The Feldenkrais Method® in 2000.

She began the required four-year training program to become a Feldenkrais practitioner in February 2006 and graduated in November 2009. During Cheryl’s remarkable journey of learning, healing, and self-discovery, she also discovered a martial art called Ninpo Tai Jutsu. She fell in love with the art and the training as well as the powerful connection between Feldenkrais and martial arts and their incredible healing power.

Cheryl has dedicated her life to helping others achieve the best quality of life possible. Having personally experienced the anxiety of dealing with chronic pain, stress, and fatigue, she also understands the frustration of feeling out of control, gaining weight, and struggling to find a healthy, effective way to recover after devastating injuries. Cheryl has integrated her education, experience, and expertise to develop a program for people to improve their fitness and flexibility, regardless of their age or current level of function. It is her firm belief that anyone can be fit, flexible, healthy, vibrant, and energetic in their fifties, sixties, seventies, and beyond.

Read What the Critics are Saying

“In this useful book, author and physical therapist Cheryl IIov shares her years of personal experience and expertise to help readers achieve a healthy life through movement, mindset and nutrition.

IIov begins the book with a candid preface about her life, including her early years as an impossibly skinny child, the discovery of ballet and Pilates, followed by debilitating chronic pain that turned her world into a nightmare but ultimately led her to seek solutions to regain her health…

Books of this nature can be difficult to do well because they have been done many, many times before, and also because so much information can quickly turn dull. But IIov has an engaging style and much to offer. Some readers, especially those who are new to the fitness world, will gain from her practical advice, such as the so-called movement lessons. And even though experienced fitness devotees will find much that is already familiar in those lessons, they will benefit from IIov’s personal experiences and the anecdotes she shares of how clients excelled or failed.

Overall, Forever Fit and Flexible is a well written, thorough guide to healthy living that will be enjoyed by a wide spectrum of readers looking for the same.”
