Mirabai Holland exercise DVDs are perfect for women over 40. She has spent her 30-year career specializing in fitness for women. A true expert in women’s health and fitness she served two terms as Chair of the American Council On Exercise Instructor Examination Committee. She says “I want every woman from my generation to enjoy the same strength, mobility and vitality in the second half of her life that she did when she was younger. A women's wellness advocate, Mirabai has designed home workouts for women that serve a variety of ages and fitness levels. She has seniors exercise, programs for menopause and weight gain, osteoporosis and exercise, and a beginner exercise program called Ease-in. Mirabai says, "My approach to at home exercises for women is simple. Ease-in, build up, get strong, and live well.
RUTH, NYC:"I was about 20 pounds heavier but I was doing the exercise program for health and fitness rather than beauty. I was extremely out of shape and Mirabai made me feel that you didn’t have to be skinny to be fit, that you didn’t have to be young to be fit. She was very welcoming. Mirabai breaks things down in a way that makes you stick with her. Her sequence builds on itself. You begin slow and easy and before you know it, you’re working up a bit of a sweat. You amaze yourself with what you can do. A natural discipline is created and you are able to eat less and still enjoy eating. The pounds just melted away. Walking and doing movements outside of exercising became really pleasurable. Now I use the exercises to have more movement in life. I do a lot of baby-sitting for my grandchildren and I couldn’t be lifting them and have the pleasure I have with them or the endurance, without the exercise framework that Mirabai set for me."
ANN, ATLANTA: "Over the years, my weight had gradually risen to 165 pounds. I knew I was overweight, I felt lousy and I hated the way I looked. I knew I had to diet and exercise, and I kept telling myself that I would/could do it “tomorrow,” but I just couldn’t find the motivation. I also have always hated exercise, and the few times I joined a gym, I couldn’t stick with it. In 2009, my cardiologist told me he wanted me to lose 15 pounds by the time I came to see him again in six months. I knew that I had to do it, or I would be so embarrassed I wouldn’t be able to come back to see him again. A couple of days later, I started with Mirabai’s Fabulous Forever 7 Pack. They sounded like they’d be worth a try, and they’ve been wonderful. I did the three Easy DVDs first. Along with a diet of very little, rice, potatoes or pasta, they got me going. After having lost around 30 pounds and improving my fitness level, I started the Fabulous Forever level 2 DVDs and the Stretch and Tone. At this point, I’ve reached my goal weight and have maintained it. I’ve added some things back into my diet in moderation, and I still exercise every day. Mirabai and my new way of eating have helped me change my lifestyle for good. I’m 100% convinced that diet and exercise go hand in hand; you can’t do one without the other. If I only diet, I might lose weight, but I’d be all flabby and not toned. If I only exercise but don’t eat right, I might be toned, but I won’t lose weight or be as healthy as I feel today. I find Mirabai’s DVDs to be perfect for me. I can roll out of bed in the morning and get my workout in without having to drive to the gym. Mirabai doesn’t yell at me, and the workout is suited to my age group.
