Why do I need a training "Program?" 

A Program has Structure: specific workouts in an intentional order to progress to your goal. Each day is based on what you did yesterday and tomorrow. Random classes or workouts can't do that. In just 20-40 minutes, 4 days a week, you'll get the right kind of exercise, in the right amount, at the right time (hint: do your intense workouts early in the day for optimal hormone balance).  We program the optimal mix of:

Full-Body Strength Training is 8X more effective than split workouts in boosting metabolism,

Full-Body Strength Training

Full-Body Strength Training is 8X more effective than split workouts in boosting metabolism, which burns fat. 2 workouts a week will tone your body, build lean muscle and improve bone density. You need weights heavy enough to challenge you. Light weights and bands don't provide enough stimulus for muscles and bones. You need the right intensity.
Effective, quick Cardio Interval workouts are best to burn visceral (belly) fat

Cardio Interval Training

Short, intense Cardio Interval workouts are best to burn visceral (belly) fat and improve cardiovascular health. (Long endurance cardio breaks down muscle, increases inflammation and raises cortisol levels.) Cardio Intervals also boost your mood, energy and stamina.
Mobility work improves flexibility, balance, and reduces injuries.

Mobility & Functional Training

Mobility work improves flexibility, balance, and reduces injuries. Overtraining will backfire - too much and muscle breaks down faster than it rebuilds. Allow 48-72 hours of Recovery between intense strength work.  A balanced schedule will keep you active and healthy for decades to come! 

Hi, I'm Rita,

I'm the founder of Living Bolder and creator of BolderBARRE. I've been teaching dance, movement and fitness for four decades. When I reached my 40's my hormones and body started changing. It wasn’t until I found Strength Training that I saw real positive changes in my body. 

I've spent the past 18 months immersed in what the top experts have to say about health and fitness in midlife, perimenopause and beyond. Bolder STRONG is the result of that research.

"Rita’s programs are awesome and I look forward to the workouts. The modifications and recommendations for exercises are great and I appreciate the fact she’s always available for any questions. I’m 73 and feeling stronger every day! Thanks Rita!"

Elizabeth

I recently completed Rita’s “4 Weeks to Strong” program, and I cannot say enough what a great program this is! It is the perfect blend of strength training and cardio exercises. Over the course of four weeks, I could really see how much stronger I had gotten, and how much my form had improved. I especially enjoyed the cardio kickboxing workouts because they are intense,  fun, and don’t kill your knees. 

Thank you Rita for putting together such a fun and effective program! I can't wait to try the Bolder Strong 12 Week program.

"Rita... thank you!! I love what you have put together. 

Not always easy, but feels so good. Your structure is so flexible and I‘ve found that I love the Bonus modules at the end of a tough class… just to keep stretching and cooling down.  Your website is amazing… so well designed and user friendly!
