Regular price $13.50 Sale

Healthy, Vital, Active, Joyful! These are not words com-monly used to describe getting older. Yet by focusing on exercising smarter, you can retain the vigor of youth and perform as well, if not better, while limiting injury. It is true. Our bodies change every year and we are different after 40 than when we were 20. But just because we're not teenagers anymore doesn't mean we can't be strong, healthy, or vital. In Fitness After 40, Dr. Vonda Wright, an orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine for people over 40, captures the advice, exercises, and injury pre-vention insights she gives her patients every day for getting healthy, staying trim, and taking fitness to the next level. It is like having your own doctor in the house. Dr. Wright is the creator of a unique exercise program (F.A.C.E.) specifically designed to target the fitness and performance needs of mature athletes. In Fitness After 40, she shows you how to implement flexibility, aerobic exer-cise and strength training to regain vigor, and look and feel better than ever. By following her proven program, you can learn to: understand your body and approach exercise and injury in a new way - make the most of your exercise routine during a busy week - hydrate and understand how to eat right - avoid injury to rotator cuffs, lower back, knees, and legs - maximize stretching, running, and weight training - as well as much more.
