Overview

At age sixty, Margaret Richard personifies strength with grace. No wonder her popular PBS show, "Body Electric," remains a viewer favorite after twenty-two years! Margaret knows that you want a fitness program that is convenient, affordable, effective, and enjoyable. That's a tall order, but the Body Electric program will deliver. Whether you are forty or eighty, the resistance exercises offered in this program serve to counteract many age-related conditions, such as weakened muscles, osteoporosis, stiff joints, and weight gain. With just one Body Electric thirty- to sixty-minute exercise session every three days, you will develop stronger muscles, denser bones, and a more fit body. No need to choose between firm arms or a tight butt. You can have it all.

  • Workout intensity is geared to your level of fitness, not your age
  • High-rep "strength with grace" approach helps you define and tone muscles without bulk
  • Exercises that tone and stretch all your major muscle groups

And it's not just about exercise. Margaret Richard shows you how to conquer motivational challenges so you never miss a workout (including that age-old excuse, “I have no time.”). She'll prove how good it feels to replace five pounds of fat with five pounds of muscle, even though you haven't technically lost weight. She'll show you how to make the most of your body and develop the strength to take life on with vitality.

No gym memberships. No expensive workout equipment. Just three hours a week, serious results, and the strong, sexy body you want.
