These authors understand the complexities of women’s bodies and the changes that occur as women age.

More than an exercise guide, Total Body Beautiful explores the changes that women experience during and after pregnancy, during perimenopause, and during and after menopause.

You’ll get practical and research-backed advice on improving strength, mobility, flexibility, and aerobic fitness. You’ll learn how to choose fitness activities based on your goals—both now and when your life priorities change.

Working with Desi is one of my favorite things. Anytime my anxiety is high, she helps bring me back to the present moment through yoga.

I’m so lucky to have her in my life; she is a gift to this world!”—Ashley Tisdale, Actress and Founder of Frenshe

“Nicole helped me sculpt my body and get in tip-top shape for House Bunny.”—Anna Faris

“Andrea is a great trainer and very educated about the body. She motivated me and made it fun to train with her in 2009 after the birth of my daughter.”—Heidi Klum
