As a woman over 50, how often have you asked yourself...
The answer isn't doing workouts designed for 20-somethings
I'm talking about the day you realize you couldn't fit into your favorite pair of pants.
"What is happening?!" you mentally (or outwardly) shriek, as you lie on the bed holding your breath while trying to pull up your zipper.
You haven't done anything different, so what the heck?
Your body has clearly been making some less-than-favorable changes while you were busy doing other things.
Yup, welcome to the over-50 weight shift.
You can blame menopause, stress, or finishing off those last few bites off of your granddaughter's plate (why did I not remember how much I love mac and cheese?), but whatever the reason, this waist-expanding situation has GOT TO GO!
I'm Linda Melone, a 61-year old certified trainer who is walking right next to you on this journey.
I'm here to tell you, don't feel bad. It happens to the best of us, including me.
The problem is, no one tells you why it happens and what to do about it... until now.
"Having your total body videos to work out with made a HUGE difference in the level of my workouts! I wasn't warming up enough, wasn't pushing myself enough, and there was no variety. Over the last 90 days I've lost a couple of pounds, started lifting heavier dumbbells and today I could do the "one-legged sit-to-stand" -- I was pitiful in the beginning. I plan to continue cycling through these videos as I am still benefiting from them."
I'm Linda Melone, a 61-year old trainer who's been in the fitness world since 1995. I have four national certifications and am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS).
I've worked with hundreds of clients in my 20+ years as a trainer. I know what works and what doesn't because I've pretty much tried it or witnessed it with my clients.
PLUS, I found myself overweight the same way I described above. I took my own advice and dropped over 18 lbs. after age 50 and have kept it off for eight years.
So I know it's doable – when you have a plan.
If you've tried fad diets, starving yourself, doing endless crunches -- and all you got for your effort was a sore back and misery -- you know those options are NOT the answer.
You need a plan.
Not one created by some 25-year old who believes "more is better," but by a qualified trainer who's been in your shoes and knows firsthand the challenges you face.
No double talk, hype or fads -- just solid advice that works.
Doing tons of crunches isn't enough.

Her programs are safe and research based. There are no gimmicks. She keeps things interesting by offering a variety of exercises and meal plans that are geared tp women over 50."
"I’ve always led an active life, but recent health and stressful situations in my life set me back. I didn't want to be that 'frail old woman' and knew I needed to get back to working out. I wasn't sure where to turn. I found Linda through a Google search, hoping to find someone
who understood MY body at MY age. She’s amazing; the workouts she prescribed were awesome! Linda made a huge difference in my motivation and results. "
"I was sold on Linda after watching her videos and seeing her plan. She just knew her stuff. I accomplished my goal to firm up. She knew what I needed more than I did. She helped me change up the routines so it didn't get boring. I really like her whole-body, 15- to 20-minute workouts, that I can add things to and make longer when I have time."

No. All the ab and core exercises use only your own body weight. One suggests using added weight to increase the challenge, but it's not necessary.
The meal plan is a template with suggestions for a specific pattern of protein, carbs and fat. You can adjust and include your favorite foods for each category, vegetarian or otherwise.
