Stay strong and feel great as you move through the decades of your life with Age Strong: A Woman’s Guide to Feeling Athletic and Fit After 40! Internationally renowned personal trainer Rachel Cosgrove will help you increase metabolism, lose body fat, decrease osteoporosis risk, boost stamina, and increase self-confidence as you move toward and through menopause.

With Age Strong you’ll get pumped about setting goals, eliminating excuses, and meeting the aging process head on. Read about real clients of the author and how they built muscle and confidence through strength training. Get detailed instructions, accompanied by full-color photos, on how to safely perform 73 traditional strength exercises and 41 mobility and warm-up movements that will help strengthen your core, lower body, and upper body and help you develop power.

Follow the step-by-step plan that’s worked for hundreds of women who have maintained their athleticism in their 40s, their 50s, and beyond. Start with the base phase of the program to address common imbalances and learn how to master basic movements. Then, bump up the intensity a bit with the build phase before moving on to the stronger phase, in which you’ll build volume as you increase the number of reps and load for select exercises. The final phase, age strong, shows you how to work up to suggested strength standards for exercises such as push-ups, squats, and deadlifts.

Age Strong empowers you to take control of your body, gain muscle, improve body composition, and learn new skills so you can stay strong and feel capable for life!
