Full Backcover Description
I am very proud to introduce Good for You, filmed at Cayuga Lake, located in New York’s beautiful Finger Lakes region. The program features my unique brand of muscle and bone strengthening exercises – tough on muscles and easy on joints. You’ll benefit from f our half- hour (approx.) workouts, each with its own warm-up and cool-down. Do them in rotation for a balanced week-long program.
We begin to lose muscle mass after age 30 and bone density after age 40. However, these losses can be slowed down and even reversed by performing strength-training exercises, right at home, with a minimum amount of affordable equipment. Our bodies will respond to exercise at any age.
You’ll enjoy the music, lake side setting, and most of all, your increased muscle tone, strength and vitality – always Good for You.

Certified instructor description:
Four all-new workouts filmed outdoors in a beautiful lakeside setting. Nothing fancy. These are straight-forward muscle toners — simple sets of well-proven exercises. You'll build lean, strong muscles with familiar classics like lunges, push-ups, bicep curls, abdominal crunches and overhead presses. They're all super-easy-to-follow — Margaret does just one exercise at a time (always carefully explaining what to do and why you're doing it). Each program is a little different. Sometimes Margaret works the same body area with varied exercises; other times she rotates through a complete series of muscle groups. Requires 3 to 5 lb. dumbbells; a “squishy ball” is used in a few segments. ©2010.
