"It’s better to stay well than to get well and Doctor recommended Functional Fitness DVD's are truly remarkable for helping you restore vitality, strength and life to the baby boomer generation. By giving you a choice to do the program seated or standing, Suzanne Andrews makes the program accessible to a mature audience and to plus size people. A lot of people find that as they get older, they lose their flexibility, they lose their mobility and those are things that everyone wants to keep going and that’s why Functional Fitness starring Suzanne Andrews is so important.

10 Ways Our Therapeutically Designed and Doctor Recommended Fitness DVD's Help You!
You Deserve Good Health...and More!
But all too often, those wants and dreams get put on hold by not having enough time to go to the gym, not having enough money to pay for expensive exercise equipment or pay for an expensive trainer. Often our good intentions get taken over by hectic work schedules, family demands, laundry loads, taking care of the kids, and well, you can fill in the blank from there.
We were raised to live our life for everyone else... often at the sacrifice of our own health and fitness needs. I speak from experience, as I used to weigh 60 lbs heavier than I am today and had all the health complications that go with obesity - joint pain, muscle stiffness, shortness of breath, fatigue, trouble sleeping and serious medical bills.
As if we're only 'good' parents and grandparents if we are willing to sacrifice our time, hopes and health. And that anything other is just being selfish.
How has that thinking brought us to where we are today?
For older adults, Functional Fitness can help to regain physical losses that have been caused by a sedentary lifestyle. One study cited by Harber (2003) involved ten frail nursing home patients aged 87 to 96 who participated in an eight week strength training program. At the end of the eight weeks, participants had regained abilities that had previously been lost. The older adults almost tripled their leg strength and were able to walk almost 50% faster!
One participant was actually able to get up from a seated position without using his arms; a task he could not perform before participating in the training program. Two participants were able to stop using their canes and one was able to get up at night without using a walker or turning on lights. Despite the short period of training, great benefits were achieved in the physical aptitude of the elderly participants. Just think of what you can do if you're only 40, 50, 60 or 70 years old with Functional Fitness...

Dr. Paul D'Arezzo MD, Author of Functional Fitness Book
"Suzanne, as a fellow medical professional, I appreciate the fact that you are an occupational therapy practitioner which implies a certain level of compassion and understanding that sometimes I think run of the mill instructors lack and how much small changes in strength and function can make a big difference in the quality of some people's lives.
I have always felt that in an exercise program what people really want are things that help them to maintain function for as long as possible, to stay independent and to keep doing all the things they need and want to do for as long as possible. And thus, it seems, the biggest bang for the buck are exercises like yours that closely mimic and use muscle groups we need for everyday life."
Award Winning Doctor Mache Seibel Reveals
Three Reasons Why Functional Fitness is Doctor Recommended
Real People, Real Results! This could be YOU!
"B.S.A. (before Suzanne Andrews) I could not or did not look forward to daily exercise. Now, just try to keep me away!
The best thing I can say is since you are a therapy practitioner, I have confidence . You say I can do something.Your two side-kicks, help me do it, until I can get to your level. I feel you have the only program I have ever seen, that really "speaks my language."
It is remarkable, that I actually look forward to exercise. For over forty years, I would say, "Oh what I would do, to become committed to exercise that I love. That's all I ever wanted. Thanks to you now I am.
I can do the exercises in my living room just like you promised. Going to a gym (which I have never done in my life) is out of the question.
I have always been a Mom and Grandma who plays though. I ride bikes, even snow skied down a mountain in the bright full moon in upstate NY this winter (all thanks to you). Trust me, had I not been working with you daily, I would never repeat NEVER tried to snow ski again."
Thanks to you, I am going to do all the stuff with my four grandkids (and counting) that I did with my children! Feel proud....you are a blessing." Liz Di Pasquale, FL
