  good and feel good. Acacia has just
  released two fantastic new fitness titles,
  Keeping Fit In Your 50s: Aerobics

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.

Keeping Fit In Your 50s: BoxsetKeeping 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.
