User-friendly Flashcards to Increase Bone Density

Vicki Buckley, certified fitness instructor, special education teacher and author, is pleased to present Bone Maker Travel Decks: a wellness program for imperfect bodies. The travel decks are an independence tool: a system of color-coded, preplanned, rotational exercise routines that prevent muscle atrophy and over-use injury with built in recovery time, needed especially in boomers and seniors.
After teaching Bone Makers more than 10 years at local recreation centers and being asked by students to “just write it down,” Buckley finally did. Now she proudly offers a do-it-yourself, low tech, no memory needed, low impact, modified/stretch exercise system for people wanting safe, bone strengthening, balance, posture and memory improvement. The Bone Makers program is a sequential, pocket size, flash card system. It is educational yet written in everyday language with pictures. It promotes wellness and engages with pictorial USDA bone building food guides and muscle maps.
“I just wanted to make a practical tool for others like me suffering from low bone density and experiencing a merry-go-round of overuse injuries. I wanted to empower people to stay functional so they could continue doing what they wanted but with less aches and pains and doctor appointments,” says Buckley.
The flashcards are perfect for travel and don’t require a gym. In addition, there are modifications on the back of each card for those who need to modify an exercise. Each muscle can have its own level: beginner, intermediate or advanced.
