About this course

In this incredibly useful and practical workshop with health and nutrition coach, and personal trainer, Lisa Swanson, we cover everything you need to know to both lose weight and maintain a healthy one. It's particularly focused on maintaining a good weight in midlife and beyond, and focuses in on our particular issues in this area.

We look at diet, what exercise we need to do, why and how often, and provide several fully body workouts you can easily do at home.
