If you're interested in feeling stronger, healthier, and more vital, this program is for you. This strength-training program was developed by experts at Tufts University and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Growing Stronger is an exercise program based upon sound scientific research involving strengthening exercises—exercises that have been shown to increase the strength of your muscles, maintain the integrity of your bones, and improve your balance, coordination, and mobility. In addition, strength training can help reduce the signs and symptoms of many chronic diseases, including arthritis.

If you're not physically active now, Growing Stronger will help you make daily activity a regular part of your life by building the essential strength that makes all movement easier and more enjoyable.

Lacking a coherent view of how people might live successfully all the way to their very end, we have allowed our fates to be controlled by the imperatives of medicine, technology, and strangers.

Senior of the Month: Lynn Ruth Miller


Lynn Ruth Miller is a writer, former professor, cabaret artist, and is currently the oldest performing stand up comedian on both sides of the Atlantic. She’s written 15 books, has two Masters degrees (including one from Stanford), and made Simon Cowell laugh on Britain’s Got Talent.

As anyone who saw Lynn on Britain's got Talent – or, indeed, America's got Talent (she's been on both) – will testify, Lynn's comedy style is one-liners. "Meanwhile, my cabaret is funny stories. I love telling stories," she says.

While she didn't win either of the two TV shows, she's had plenty of awards and the gigs just keep coming. "Sure, I have aches and pains," she says. "Who doesn't at this age? But it doesn't make me sit at home. I always say, I will probably die on my way to a gig."
