"Before we went to Aspen I had blood work done. Some numbers (written in pen) on the enclosed sheet were high. I just had new blood work done and alas
all have improved. Cholesterol from 224 to 174, LDL from 136 to 98, HDL from 67 to 60, triglycerides from 83 to 63, Glucose from 112 to 109. Still high but going down.
I have stayed with the diet and exercise. I’ve also leveled off at my grad school weight. I think you’re on to something big! Thanks for helping us. Its making a big difference."

"I had high hopes for YNY Immersion Week and my hopes were exceeded. The program makes so much more sense to me now and I have the knowledge, support and RESULTS to make it my lifestyle.So many things stand out about the week, but when I look for the common denominator - it's people. Our group is phenomenal - successful, smart individuals who are continuing to make positive changes in the world and in themselves. The Aspen Club staff is terrific - talented, professional and genuinely caring people who lead by example and WANT to help you learn and grow. Chris and Hilary are inspiring - spreading the word so powerfully to bring people through their third act healthy and energetic.
There are no quick fixes for years of being sedentary and making poor food choices. But there IS a path that's sensible and achievable and attending YNY Immersion Week jump started my progress down this path."

Fran Anderson, 6.2.15

"I'm still 'high' from my time with you and YNY! I have not missed a day of the PFM and have tried to do at least something more also. I've been having fun with my meals too and have lost 8 lbs! Very exciting.."

YOUNGER NEXT YEAR: The Exercise Program (on sale January 5, 2016 / Workman Publishing / $10.95) is a detailed road map for anyone who wants to turn back the biological clock. Featuring illustrated step-by-step instructions, this guide is concise, accessible, and motivating. It prepares the reader both physically and mentally to start an exercise regimen, cuts down on anxiety, and provides the inspiration and expertise to keep it going for life.

Written by the renowned Henry S. Lodge, M.D., the Robert Burch Family Professor of Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center, and Chris Crowley, Dr. Lodge’s avid patient, Younger Next Year: The Exercise Program equips users with the tools to become physically and mentally younger than their chronological age—by more than 20 years!—through a combination of aerobic exercise (the “magic bullet”) and strength training. Bill Fabrocini, P.T. CSCS, a clinical specialist in orthopedic physical therapy and a sports performance training coach, provides the know-how regarding the right way to exercise, in addition to the core exercises that make up the foundation for a lifelong exercise regimen.

The publication of Younger Next Year sparked a revolution among baby boomers and Gen-Xers who are tackling the last third of their lives with determination and vigor. They understand the core concept that while aging is inevitable, decay is optional. Now it’s time for even more to heed the call.

Chris Crowley, a former litigator (Davis Polk & Wardwell), writes the Younger Next Year books and lives the life, still skiing double black diamonds and riding centuries on his bike.

Henry S. Lodge, M.D., FACP, a board-certified internist, is listed variously as “One of the Best Doctors in New York/America/the World.” He heads a 20-doctor practice in Manhattan and is the Robert Burch Family Professor of Medicine at Columbia University Medical School.

Bill Fabrocini, P.T., CSCS, is a clinical specialist in orthopedic physical therapy and a sports performance training coach. During his 25-year career, he has designed exercise programs for companies such as Massachusetts General Hospital and Aspen Ski Company. He has trained many famous athletes, including NBA MVP David Robinson, Olympic medalists Chris Klug and Gretchen Bleiler, and tennis grand-slam champion Martina Navratilova.
