CEU Webinar | Female, Hardy and Hearty… but Different


With more data, incredible diagnostic imaging and procedures, we better understand the biological differences between men and women when it comes to frailty, the dyna-sarco-osteopenias, and CV-metabolic risk factors, disease manifestations and trajectories. Chronic disease has its roots in the 4 I’s, what I coin Aging Accelerants. R.E.H.A.B. [Restore-Energy-Hardiness-Aspirations-Benchmarks] is grounded in 5 Buttressed Pillars and 7S Training Buckets.

There is a window of opportunity to create and maintain an environment ripe for repair and regeneration, extending the healthspan and brainspan, expanding our movement sphere, and adding ‘life to our years’. Ladies, we live longer than our male counterparts, but not necessarily better. Take this bull by the horns, and jump through this window of opportunity to beat back Mother Time.
