The Right Timing

Fat loss? Muscle gain? A little extra bat speed at your next softball game? Reach the fitness goal of your choice by speeding up—or slowing down—the tempo of your lifts.

What Now?

Whether you’re in your 30s or your 70s, following an age-specific fitness regimen can keep you looking and feeling your very best.
