This a problem for many people who once defined and stayed in shape through sports. How do I know stay in shape without training for a specific sport? This program is designed with former athletes in mind, combining strength and conditioning with general exercises for health and performance in everyday life. You will feel comfortable with many exercises you saw in previous sport workouts and you will workout on the ability to stay healthy and functional for life.
