Full Backcover Description
Developed by Kathy Smith, a leading force in the fitness industry for nearly 30 years, this unique program is specially designed to combat the aging process. You’ll shape lean muscle while increasing bone density and stamina, helping to create a youthful, healthy body.
We lose muscle mass as we age, making everyday tasks more difficult. Strength training builds and maintains muscles, keeping the body firm, lifted, and vigorous.
In this program, you’ll target your arms, legs, glutes, and core in four 15-minute practices with modifications to suit your needs and experience level. If you’re short on time, try one or two segments. Feeling energized? Do all four for a total-body workout!
If you want to boost your metabolism, look amazing, and feel terrific at any age, Staying Strong is for you!

Four body-part-focused segments that combine classic toning with Pilates and functional fitness. It's all designed to fight the aging process as it strengthens your body to make everyday activities easier (and safer). Each segment targets just one muscle group: upper body, legs, abs or buttocks. You can choose a specific "trouble spot," or do the entire program for a comprehensive, total-body toner. As always, Kathy's cuing is clear and detailed (e.g. "see how we engage the abdominals to protect the lower back"). She also includes modifications and level options (e.g. lighter weights, smaller movements). Requires 3 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2011.
