you believe, as the old saying goes,
that life begins at 40, why should it
end at 50? In the 21st Century, reaching
the age of 50 means you can still look
good and feel good. Acacia has just
released two fantastic new fitness titles, Keeping Fit In Your 50s: Aerobics andKeeping Fit In Your 50s Boxset,
designed especially to maintain fitness
at 50 and beyond... DID YOU OVER-INDULGE OVER CHRISTMAS? Are you of that certain age where
the extra inches just don't seem to come off? Fear not, because there
are two new titles in Acacia's 'Healthy, Joyful Living'
range of DVDs: Keeping Fit In Your 50s: Aerobics and the Keeping Fit
In Your 50s Boxset both intended to help you lose 'the
bulge' and achieve optimum fitness.
Keeping Fit In Your 50s: Aerobics is uniquely designed to address your
body's needs at that certain time of your life as the metabolism begins to slow
down. Packed with keep-fit insights highlighting the importance of aerobic training,
this DVD includes: a 30-minute routine; exercise tips for achieving maximum
results; advanced exercises; and a Question and Answer session with medical
experts Lisa Callahan (author of The Fitness Factor) and Lilli Shockney
(author of Breast Cancer Survivors Club). Overall, it's a fact-filled
DVD that provides workout essentials for a changing body.
Fit In Your 50s Boxset is a total body workout system. Not just about looking
great, it's also about having fun while you work on your fitness levels. The
Keeping Fit In Your 50s Boxset contains a set of overall fitness programmes
again very much geared towards the changing body with emphasis on Flexibility,
Aerobics and Strength.
The introduction is a bit overly 'American' with Cindy Joseph who did
not start her modelling career until she was 49, when she also began snowboarding
and sky-diving and exercise physiologist Robyn Stuhr sounding like part
of a mutual admiration society. That said, these Keeping Fit In Your 50s
DVDs really are extremely helpful, containing informative and worthwhile work-out
plans that are encouragingly simple to follow.
With a programme packed full of features, this boxset includes: insights into
the major physical changes for those in their 50s; exercise tips for achieving
maximum results; 30 to 40 minute routines; advanced/alternative exercises; introductory
Pilates and yoga workouts and Q&As with medical experts.
Encouraging regular exercise, the DVDs offer help to combat weight gain and
show you how you can relieve stress. You'll soon see that effective fitness
programmes can pave the way to a happier and healthier lifestyle.
Cindy believes that she is experiencing the best decade of her life and says
that "the 50s are a world of opportunity to live life to the fullest." She believes
that women are beautiful regardless of their ages and that if you want to be
healthy and look your best you have to begin with a commitment to a healthy
lifestyle. As your body changes, your exercise programme has to accommodate
those changes and this programme is your first step to staying fit for
the rest of your life.
Robyn, who has dedicated her career as an Exercise Physiologist to helping women
achieve their fitness goals, has led a very active life since childhood and
her current passion is cycling. She promotes physical activity to give you energy
and confidence and maintains that the Flexibility exercises, along with Strength
and Aerobics with cardio-vascular exercise, are essential for good physical
health. While discussing this well-rounded and effective personal fitness plan,
the emphasis is very much on using the correct techniques to avoid injury and
the necessity of warm ups and stretching before exercising.
Avoiding low back pain while exercising by keeping your body in the correct
alignment is also covered and there are plenty of workout tips for stretching
and advice for getting the most out of your exercise routines.
These DVDs will help to keep you focused on the health benefits of exercise
to give you a goal and there is also an introduction to Pilates (a form of exercise
to develop strength and flexibility in your core body0 and an introduction to
Yoga. Following the advice given in the Keeping Fit In Your Fifties DVDs
will teach you about your muscles and your target areas. Regular exercise now
will build a healthier body for a lifetime.
