A major struggle with staying fit as we get older is handling pain and soreness. Our bodies aren’t able to stay in shape as easily and don’t take as kindly to physical activity. While pain medication is great, it’s also dangerous and addicting. TENS 7000 solves both of these problems with natural pain relief. It’s easy to use and provides custom pain relief for both chronic and acute pain. That means women over 40 don’t have to worry about being sidelined from exercise because of aches and pain.
As we age, balance and strength diminish. ActivMotion Bars are hollow weighted exercise bars that are partially filled with ball bearings that shift dynamically within. This shifting resistance causes more stability and core muscles to work as the bar is being lifted. For anyone, this means better balance, more core strength and higher calorie burn since more muscles are working to stabilize the shifting bar. ActivMotion Bars come in different weights, and come with digital workouts with any purchase. ActivMotion Bars range in price from $99 to $159 each depending on the weight of the bar. They are proudly made in Michigan, USA.

ULTRA COMPACT AND PORTABLE: The patented complete gym comes fully assembled, is only 16 inches when folded, and weighs just 1.5 pounds.”
