    Thank you!

    Pledges at this level cumulatively help reach the total goal for the project, which means the internship continues helping students and the Joint-Friendly Fitness book gets produced. You'll get periodic updates via email on what the interns are doing, excerpts from the book, and announcements on any new projects, talks, and videos. If you came here from the Congruent Exercise Facebook page, this is the option. Everyone else, please feel free to like the page and find several years of posts, videos, scans, and discussion of Joint-Friendly Fitness.
