    Lesley Ackland truly practises what she preaches - in her late 40s, she looks 20 years younger thanks to her Pilates body maintenance programme. Pilates is the perfect exercise regime for the over 50s due to its low-impact exercises that ensure joints remain flexible and general mobility is increased.

    Here Lesley reveals her fitness secrets, including Pilates exercises and a nutrition plan, which will allow everyone to look and feel years younger. The routines in this book combine low-impact exercises with resistance training and weight-bearing exercise, which is crucial for building and maintaining bone density to ensure osteoporosis doesn't set in after menopause.

    The benefits of Pilates for more mature people include:
    - Flexible joints and a strong back to take the years off you
    - Toned and lengthened arms, shoulders, legs, abdominals and buttocks so your clothes hang beautifully whatever your size
    - Improved suppleness and grace; improved bone density for long-term health benefits.

    With a case study of one of Lesley's mature clients who has used her routines to alleviate age-related health problems such as arthritis, postural difficulties and bone density problems, 'Pilates Over 50' is a comprehensive guide to looking and feeling younger.
