In this video, Go4Life fitness instructor Sandy Magrath leads older adults through a workout featuring a warm up, strength, balance, and flexibility exercises, and a cool down.
Equipment needed: A stable chair, a towel, light hand weights and a tennis ball.
These exercises can be done at home, at work, at the gym—almost anywhere!
The Go4Life Campaign from the National Institute on Aging focuses on encouraging older adults to make exercise and physical activity a part of their daily life. Use the Go4Life Everyday Exercises to practice the four types of exercise that are important for older adults: strength, balance, flexibility, and endurance.
