Here's the thing...
It takes more effort to stay in shape as you get older. If you're anything like my clients, you've probably noticed that what worked in your 20's and 30's doesn't get results anymore.
Many women think that “Eat Less, Exercise More” is the answer. And when they don’t see the results they’re looking for, they double down — more calorie restriction, more cardio. It's a vicious cycle.
After 40, you need a different approach — a fitness plan specifically designed for YOU.
Bolder STRONG is your solution. I've programmed the optimal mix of full-body Strength training, HIIT, and Mobility workouts.
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 (timing matters for hormone balance). And, you can do this almost anywhere, without lots of equipment.
I created Bolder STRONG with you in mind. This is exactly how I work out, and how I train my clients, so I know it works!

Hi, I'm Rita!
I'm the founder of Living Bolder, a menopause fitness specialist, and former fitness studio owner. In the past four decades I've taught more than 3,000 fitness classes and trained hundreds of women over 40. I'm a 57-year-old woman, wife, and mom.
I've been around the block. My personal fitness journey has been riddled with over-exercising, extreme dieting, body image issues and, over time... a return to balance. I understand the unique challenges of midlife women. Trying to change your body after 40 can IS harder, and it can feel frustrating, but it is possible and I can show you how!
My clients often tell me: "I want to lose fat and feel better, but I have a hard time being consistent. I really need accountability."
I will teach you how to get fit at home with efficient, effective, enjoyable workouts that maximize results in less time.
I created Bolder STRONG with you in mind. This is exactly how I work out, and how I train my clients, so I know it works.
Have you ever started a fitness program but didn't finish?
I sure have!
Consistency is key, but if you don't enjoy your program you won't be consistent.
Bolder STRONG makes working out from home enjoyable, delivering the best results in less time with workouts that are:
EFFICIENT: Smart programming that delivers results in less time.
EFFECTIVE: Progressive design to help you reach your goals, because if you're not seeing progress, you won’t want to keep it up!
ENJOYABLE: I keep my workouts upbeat, motivating and fun so you stick with them!
Clients Are Saying...
It’s definitely harder to maintain my physical shape in my mid-40’s than it used to be. I completed Rita’s Bolder STRONG Program and loved the results so much, I’m doing it again. I could feel myself getting stronger as I was able to increase my weights. The results were not bulk, but long, lean muscle and overall tone.
I really love about Rita’s teaching style. She doesn’t just say “what” the exercise is, but “why” it's effective, which is a great motivator. She teaches in such a supportive and relatable manner it’s like working out with a friend. Rita makes safety a priority and I really appreciate all of her cueing to ensure proper form for maximum results. Plus, she gives modifications on many exercises to accommodate individual physical needs.
I love having a weekly plan, but the program is designed with “structured flexibility” that allows me to choose what feels “right” for my body on a given day. Bolder STRONG is a wonderful workout program for women at any age, and it’s perfect for me at this stage of my life.
I just finished Rita’s 12 week program and I could not be happier. I am 55 years old and have always worked out, but over the last few years I found my workouts weren’t as effective as they used to be. With Rita’s program, I found myself engaged and looking forward to each workout. The classes are just the right amount of time to get the workout done and get on with your day. Rita demonstrates correct form for each exercise as well as modifications. I love her style. I sometimes feel like we are in the same room working out! She makes it that enjoyable. Over the last 12 weeks I have tracked my progress (with the tracking forms Rita provided) and my strength has improved significantly. I find it very hard as a menopausal woman to lean out and build muscle. I am finally started to see that! I recently purchased another program from Rita which begins in January. Can’t wait to get started. In the meantime, I will repeat the 12 week program! Not sure how I found Rita on Instagram but I am so glad that I did.
I did Living Bolder's 12-Week program and loved every minute of it! Rita is an exceptional instructor, and she made every session fun, exciting, and always rewarding. Her knowledge about fitness over 40 is exceptional and her delivery of that knowledge was easy to grasp and implement. The energy I got from this program was out of this world, and it made such a difference in the quality of my every day life. I highly recommend Rita's programs!
I just finished Rita's Bolder STRONG 12-Week program - I feel good, and I feel stronger! I really appreciate workouts geared to midlife women and what we experience in our bodies. The workouts are quick, efficient and fit perfectly into my busy schedule. When I workout on my own, I tend to do the same things over and over. I love how Rita is always changing up the workouts and has me working in all planes of motion. It's so important to keep our bodies flexible and moving in all directions.
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 sessions at the end of a tough class… just to keep stretching and cooling down. Your website is amazing — so well designed and user friendly!
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!
I can't really express my thanks for you and your classes. I have never, NEVER stuck to any physical program ever. This has been a life changing step in my life. And for me, as a teacher, your teaching technique makes a huge difference. Thank you, Rita!
Hi, Rita ... LOVED this! Feels so good to be doing something to strengthen myself. Loved the music, too!
Targets total body: Check. A solid work out is achieved even with my limitations: Check. A fantastic instructor who puts the fun in functional: Check. What's not to LOVE??
