Roughly 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 in the U.S. every day, and more of them are not giving in to old age. Like us, they’re fighting back.
Contemporaries and family may tell us we're too old to do this or that, but we're not listening.

We’re joining the Senior War on Aging and we’re being rewarded physically and mentally.

Our bodies and our brains depend on being active. We, the authors, Dr. Patsi and husband Rob Krakoff, both strongly believe that if you start now, you can stay fit for the rest of your life.
