    • Total Body Beautiful ebook
    • Online continuing education exam

    A woman's mind and body change as she goes through life, and so should her outlook on what it means to be healthy and fit. If you work with women over age 35, you need to provide fitness and wellness advice that's uniquely tailored to their needs to help them look and feel their best. You need Total Body Beautiful.

    With combined decades of experience and dozens of fitness certifications and credentials, the expert team of authors, Andrea Orbeck, Desi Bartlett, and Nicole Stuart, have worked with hundreds of women—celebrities, supermodels, stay-at-home moms, professionals, athletes—to develop workout and wellness solutions to stay active and feel good in their own skin, and they can help you do the same. These authors understand the complexities of women's bodies and the changes that occur as women age.

    More than an exercise guide, Total Body Beautiful explores the changes that women experience during and after pregnancy, during perimenopause, and during and after menopause. You’ll learn how hormones affect physical and emotional wellness, the effects of exercise on the brain, and how nutrition affects the way a woman looks and feels. You'll find insider tips and client stories from celebrities and clients who the authors have worked with.

    You'll get practical and research-backed advice on improving strength, mobility, flexibility, and aerobic fitness. You’ll learn how to choose fitness activities based on client goals and how to adjust activities as life priorities change. With 100 different exercises—spanning yoga, Pilates, and strength exercises—you'll have plenty of options to choose from when creating workouts. There are sample plans for daily and weekly workout schedules, or you can choose from over two dozen predesigned yoga, Pilates, strength and cardio, and combination workouts for instant variety and effectiveness.

    After reading the ebook, certified professionals can take the companion CE exam to earn continuing education credits.
