About the Book

Why go to the gym when you can invite a few friends over for Mah Jongg? Why lift weights when you can lift a grandchild? This tongue-in-cheek guide to exercise may not raise your target heart rate, but it might lower your blood pressure and strengthen your smile muscles.

About the Author

Raye Ann Greenbaum, an art broker, wife, mother and grandmother, and Jackie Tepper, a wedding consultant, wife, mother and grandmother, became yentas without even knowing it. Midlife came with no crisis for either but with the realization that the college diplomas they had once carried under their arms had been replaced with sagging skin. Tired of the daily barrage of 'how to,' 'why to,' and 'when to' exercise programs and diet books, they decided to take a comical approach to achieving fitness by creating imaginative routines that could be integrated into a busy social schedule without compromising the lifestyle women of a certain age enjoy.

Illustrator Betsy Hoffman is a professional artist, wife, mother, and yenta-in-training.
