SILVER SPRING, MD – As she turns 60 this year, America’s favorite fitness expert Kathy Smith launches Ageless, a new age-fighting workout line with award-winning producer Acacia. The first release, Ageless with Kathy Smith: Staying Strong, debuts on DVD on May 3, 2011. A leading force in the fitness industry for nearly 30 years, Kathy developed this unique strength training program to combat the aging process. Divided into four 15-minute practices that can be combined or performed separately, Staying Strong is a total-body workout designed to shape lean muscle while increasing bone density and stamina – helping to create a youthful healthy body. Feel great at any age with customizable segments, a bonus 12-minute stretching segment, and a special Q & A with Kathy.

We lose muscle mass as we age, making everyday tasks more difficult. Strength training builds and maintains muscles, keeping the body firm, lifted, and vigorous. In this program, you’ll target your arms, legs, glutes, and core in four 15-minute practices with modifications to suit your needs and experience level. If you’re short on time, try one or two segments. Feeling energized? Do all four for a total-body workout!
