If you’re over 50 or so, you might be gaining weight, developing high blood pressure, and becoming frailer and weaker by the day.
Plus, if you’re like most people, you’re worried about falling and developing dementia.
But what if I told you about a miracle drug that would help you lose weight, manage your blood pressure, and improve your bone density and strength? What if this drug also helped prevent falls and memory loss?
If that came in a pill, you’d swallow it, right? Who wouldn’t?
Nope, It’s Not In A Pill
But if the miracle cure came from lifting weights? Would you be as excited? Probably not. The health benefits of lifting weights for older people have been proven countless times over many years. Yet it’s still seen as a young person’s activity, usually in pursuit of nothing more than a muscular physique.
Education is crucial in overcoming harmful stereotypes, so I am more than happy to share a few of the literally countless reasons why you should practice resistance training on a regular basis.
You don’t want to be one of those people who can’t get up off the toilet by yourself. Or who can’t pick up your grandbaby. Or sleep through the night.
I’ll start with 15 – all proven by legitimate medical studies. This isn’t just my opinion. Ask your doctor. Then call me, and let’s get going.

Sorry it’s not in a pill. But I know this way is better.
