Dr. Amit Featured in Arizona Republic Article

The weight machines, stationary bikes and charity runs bored Rosalinda Lothrop. So the 54-year-old Chandler woman spiced up her workouts with the twists, turns and gyrations of Zumba, a Latin dance-inspired fitness routine that can burn 500 or more calories per hour.

Ultrasound imaging involves exposing part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Ultrasound exams do not use radiation (as in x-rays).

Weight Training Advantages for Female Athletes
