In Fitness After 40, she shows readers how to use flexibility, aerobic exercise, and strength training to maximize the benefits of their fitness regime. By following her proven program, anyone can learn to: understand their bodies and approach exercise and injury in a new way-make the most of their 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.
