Kathy Smith - Moving Through Menopause [VHS]

9780738922645: Kathy Smith - Moving Through Menopause [VHS]

Keep your cool through peri-menopause and menopause by reducing short-term symptoms and increasing long-term health with this 90-minute video from veteran instructor Kathy Smith. The workout includes 20 minutes each of low-impact cardio (for heart, bones, weight, and mood), bone-building strength training, and stress-reducing yoga. The cardio section uses simple moves and patterns (no more complicated than a cha- cha), repeated frequently, with three choices of demonstrated intensities. Experienced aerobic dancers might be bored by the lack of challenging choreography, but beginners and moderate intermediates can find their level here. The strength-training segment is well instructed with exercises that work the upper and lower body simultaneously, so you get the most out of your 20 minutes. Smith also discusses the nitty-gritty details of menopausal symptoms, beneficial effects of exercise, and nutritional strategies, including a Q&A with doctors, making this a good source of information as well as a workout routine. --Joan Price
