    Are you age 40 or over and want to maintain your workout intensity even as your body starts to age? Are you not yet ready to give up intense sweat sessions? Ageless Intensity offers a research-backed perspective on how high-intensity exercise can not only maximize health benefits past age 40 but also help minimize the physiological effects of aging.

    Fitness expert Pete McCall provides straightforward science-based information on how the same high-intensity exercise that provides a number of health benefits—from increased lean muscle mass to burning fat to reduced heart rate—can also influence human physiology in a way that can reduce the biological effects of time. Learn about the impacts of aging on the body and how to keep getting results from working out hard and pushing yourself to your limits while doing it safely, lowering the risk of injury, and building in the needed recovery for a body that may be starting to show signs of aging.

    You'll gain practical knowledge on the importance of strength and power, mobility work, and recovery as the keys to boosting your efforts to build and maintain muscle, burn calories, and help joints stay mobile as the body ages. The exercises included are designed to be challenging and deliver tangible benefits to middle-aged and older adults. Save time with the predesigned workouts or customize a complete workout plan to maximize your results and combat the effects of aging.

    Reaching the “over-the-hill” milestone doesn’t mean you have to slow down. Ageless Intensity is your guide to maintaining fitness with high-intensity exercise and workouts to remain active, stay in shape, and enjoy your favorite activities for the rest of your life.

    CE exam available! For certified professionals, a companion continuing education exam can be completed after reading this book. The Ageless Intensity Online CE Exam may be purchased separately or as part of the Ageless Intensity With CE Exam package that includes both the book and the exam.

    Audience

    Fitness enthusiasts age 40 and over who want to continue to work out at a high intensity; also a reference for personal trainers and other fitness professionals to use in working with their clients.

    Reviews

    "In a world where people are living longer and quality of life is taking center stage, Ageless Intensity is a welcome resource for all who want to understand the aging process and how to age healthily and gracefully. Pete has done an incredible job of providing the reader all of the pertinent information necessary to make the aging process an exciting journey and not a frightening process. As an author and authority on training, I have already learned a few things from this book. I recommend this book—if not for you, then for someone you care about who is in their 30s or 40s and wants to age healthily and with grace."
    —Juan Carlos “JC” Santana, MEd, CSCS, Author of JC's Total Body Transformation and Functional Training
