Full Backcover Description
The most powerful therapy for counteracting the effects of aging on the muscles is exercise.
It is the strength of your muscles, bones and character – not your age – that defines you as an individual. Even if you have led a basically sedentary life, you can redesign your body, creating more muscle mass and strength than you had in your 30s and 40s.
That’s a tall order, but the Fight Age with Strength will deliver.
The beauty of the Fight Age with Strength program is that it can be accomplished at home with a small ball (included) and your commitment. It creates stronger muscles and bones, a special concern of post-menopausal women at greater risk for the fractures associated with osteoporosis. Fit Age with Strength features four 26-minute (appox.) programs, each with its own warm-up and cool-down and it includes a ‘bonus’ introduction and tutorial.

Certified instructor description:
Includes four workouts on one DVD plus a ball and pump.
Created for older exercisers, these easy-to-follow programs will strengthen your muscles and keep you fit (they must work; Margaret is 61 years old and she's in great shape). It comes with the only equipment you need — a 6½-inch inflatable ball. The ball is used to position your body or add resistance (e.g. squeezing it between your knees). The workouts target every major muscle group with one to four exercises — proven classics like crunches, hamstring curls and chest presses. They're all gently paced with easy transitions and lots of optional modifications. Margaret is an experienced pro — her cuing is clear and totally non-intimidating. Filmed in a peaceful outdoor garden. No music, just Margaret's quiet voice. ©2010.
