Turn back the clock in just two at-home sessions per week!

Based on results published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, this scientifically proven strength-training program:

* Replaces fat with muscle
* Reverses bone loss
* Improves energy and balance
What are the years doing to your body?

* Have you lost strength?
* Does a busy day leave you worn out?
* Must you eat less to maintain your weight?
* Are your favorite sports less fun than they used to be?
* Do you notice fat where there used to be muscle?

These changes are not inevitable.  They can be prevented--and reversed!

From the famed research labs of Tufts University, here's a scientifically proven strength-training program that turns back the clock for women aged 35 and up--replacing fat with muscle, reversing bone loss, increasing strength and energy, improving balance and flexibility--all in just two at-home sessions per
week.

Miriam E. Nelson's research created news worldwide when the results were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. After a year of strength training twice a week, women's bodies were 15 to 20 years more youthful. Without drugs, they regained bone, helping to prevent osteoporosis. They became stronger--in most cases even stronger than when they were young. Their balance and flexibility improved. They were leaner and trimmer, without changing what they ate. What's more, the women were so energized, they became 27 percent more active. No other program--whether diet, medication, or aerobic exercise--has ever achieved comparable results.

Strong Women Stay Young shows women how to get the same remarkable benefits at home or in the office, working out just twice a week. Individualized instructions get couch potatoes started--and help exercise buffs break through plateaus. Significant improvements are seen after just four weeks. This major new book features:

* Eight simple, safe exercises done standing or seated--no sweat, no special clothes
* Fully illustrated step-by-step instructions that any woman can customize to her needs
* Important new information on muscle, bone, balance, and fitness--explaining why this program works
* Progress logs for the critical first 12 weeks
* Bonus: complete strength-training program to do at the gym

This scientifically tested program is proven safe and effective for beginning, intermediate, and advanced exercisers. All it takes is two short sessions a week to improve how you feel, what you can do, and how you look--for the rest of your life!

Review:

The sad truth of all exercise programs is that you have to follow them to get results. This one is no different, but its well-designed, progressive strength-training promises the fountain of youth in two 40-minute sessions a week. An extravagant claim? Yes. But many women, especially those between age 40 and 80, can achieve certain measures of youth: denser bones, better balance and flexibility, more strength and energy than women years younger. The guidelines in Strong Women Stay Young are backed with solid--though small--studies and thorough explanations of how aging changes your body. Authors Miriam E. Nelson and Sarah Wernick include clear charts, instructions, and exercise illustrations featuring women who carry extra pounds and years gracefully.

From the Publisher:

"An essential tool for women of all ages."
--C. Everett Koop, M.D.

"Miriam Nelson's work shatters all the crippling myths we have inherited about the inevitability of weakness, deterioration, and osteoporosis as we age. Her research makes it clear that you can begin to get strong even if you wait until you are 90--and without taking hormones! Strong Women Stay Young is an inspiring and motivational program."
--Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

"A vitally important book, based on solid scientific research, which for the first time offers hope to the woman who wants to live a long, vigorously active and healthy life to the fullest. It shows clearly that many of the changes associated with aging can not only be delayed, but even reversed."
--Kenneth H. Cooper, M.D., M.P.H., author of The Aerobics Program for Total Well-Being

"Strong Women Stay Young speaks the language of choice to women. The message is exquisitely clear...you're only as old as you let yourself be!"
--Margaret Richard, host of Body Electric, PBS television

"Dr. Nelson has provided women an outstanding opportunity to grow stronger, healthier, and younger."
--William J. Evans, Ph.D., Director, Noll Laboratory of Human Performance, Pennsylvania State University, and author of Biomarkers

"A terrific book! Finally, a science-based program to help women of all ages live strong and vital lives."
--Robert N. Butler, M.D., Director, International Longevity Center, Mount Sinai Medical Center
