  Whether it's because the kids are grown up and on their own, or you're retired or getting ready to retire, it's time to take better care of ourselves. It's our time now, and we need to be physically conditioned to enjoy it!

  No matter what our age, it's never to late to start exercising. Nothing gets rid of the aches and pains better than functional exercises performed safely and correctly. It's not about how much weight you use, it's how you use the weight.

Here are some of the Do's and Don'ts of Boomer Training
