Is High Intensity Functional Training the Fountain of Youth?

How to slow aging, improve mobility and increase strength and power after 40.

  •  Season 1, Episode 17

Today, host Sandy Todd Webster checks in with Pete McCall, MS, a content developer, host of the All About Fitness podcast, and author of the books Smarter Workouts: the Science of Exercise Made Simple and the newly released Ageless Intensity.

The new book offers evidence on how high-intensity exercise can minimize psychological effects of aging as well as maximize health benefits for people 40 and older. Pete and Sandy explore how high intensity functional training can slow the aging process, improve mobility, increase strength and power, and deliver metabolic conditioning with impact.

Pete, who holds a master’s degree in exercise science and has been educating fitness professionals since 2002, has authored many articles and textbook chapters about exercise physiology. He is an education consultant and master trainer for Core Health & Fitness, as well as a content creator for both ACE and NASM.
