This single-blinded, randomized study found that older women with mild cognitive impairment displayed improved executive function after twice-weekly resistance training compared to a control group that worked on balance and toning.
Doing aerobic training only showed improved balance and cardiovascular capacity, but no change in memory function.

Exercise continues to be the most promising anti-aging strategy.
Last year my programs helped dozens of people lose weight and reshape there body. I love the challenge and opportunity
to increase the quality of your life and helping you create the body you want…to look and feel younger. My programs focus on losing body fat and adding lean muscle. Women love the lean, sexy look, nothing bulky! Men appreciate thetight abdominal look!
I’ll coach you on how to improve your flexibility, how to recover, eat properly, which supplements to take, and take care of yourself between the workouts – this is the info that will make you successful. I can do this in as little as twice monthly office visits – my program is based on exercise progressions so each month I introduce a new challenge and as long as you follow the plan, you can’t go wrong.
If you need coaching on the phone, I’m available. We can tweak anything you’re concerned with.
My exercise program requires you to lift anywhere from 4-6 times a week for 30 minutes. If that sounds like “too much” than this is definitely not for you. I have worked with men and women from teenage years to eighty year olds. I personally teach you the exercises and write individual programs for each of my clients. Please feel free to call me at the office to discuss your plans. 310-473-2911
Here is a circuit that I provided to one of my clients to help her achieve her New Years resoloution for weight loss and getting back into her favorite pair of jeans:
- Total-body exercise: Four-count squat thrusts
- Upper-body exercise: Push-ups
- Lower-body exercise: Scissor step-ups
- Core/trunk exercise: Abdominal sit-backs
- Total-body exercise: Squats to presses
- Upper-body exercise: 1 Arm rows
- Lower-body exercise: One-leg squats
- Core/trunk exercise: Low-back arch ups
- This circuit has good cardiac demand for weight loss. This program will give her the look she wants and develop strength and mobility in the knees, hip joints and butt; stability and strength in the upper trunk and arm, abdominal, and pelvic regions; and her core strength will improve.
The circuit requires performing each exercise for 60 seconds and moving on to the next exercise – performing one exercise right after another. If she needs a break between exercises it should be as short as possible. At the end of the circiut she can rest for two minutes and then perform the entire circuit again. It should be done 3-4 times per week.
