I bet I hear it once a week: “It’s hell to grow old!” Of course growing old is something we all will do, unless we die first. Alas, the future can look quite sad and depressing, especially if you think about the flab, falls, pain, blues, anxiety, thin bones, loss of libido, weakness, and memory loss that can come with aging.
But wait! Listen to the exciting news. Just out, there is a powerful potion that can prevent the aging process. That’s right, guaranteed to slow aging.
Researchers have observed how shortly after starting this terrific tonic flab turns to muscle; falls are reduced; chronic pain and fibromyalgia seem magically lessened; depression and anxiety disappears; bones are actually strengthened; sexual function is enhanced and recharged; people experience new strength, energy and power; and most important, memory is clearly improved. What’s more, this special medication has also been shown to reduce diabetes, heart attack, stroke, and breast or colon cancer.
That’s not all. If you take advantage of this fabulous offer today, it will improve your appearance within weeks. Sounds too good to be true? It is scientifically proven, beyond a shadow of a doubt. And no other treatment plan comes even close. Nothing!
You would expect the price for this magnificent medication that brings about all these benefits to be more than the sum of one third of your income, or at least many thousands if not millions of dollars. But no! This medicine is equally available to the rich and poor alike, requiring only an extra effort on your part.
You could expect to work lots of extra hours each day to achieve these wonderful benefits. But no! You don’t have to work an extra two hours at the beginning or end of your workday, you don’t have to work even one extra hour.
Starting today we have a special opportunity. For spending only an extra half hour every day walking twelve blocks, yes that’s right, just twelve blocks, or what ever distance you can make in 30 minutes, you will receive most of the benefits I mentioned earlier. That’s right, only a half hour!
But wait, this offer only lasts for a short time. The longer you delay, the less you will get. If you start today, the benefits begin sooner and last longer.
That’s right, guaranteed to slow aging. Exercise is the bargain of a lifetime.
