Fitness Tips for Senior's

Posted by Elizabeth Hasty on April 25, 2014 at 9:55 AM



It is common knowledge that anyone who exercises regularly gains physical, mental, and emotional benefits. This is especially true for our senior loved ones. Whether it is gardening, walking, or more intense activity such as water aerobics, regular exercise improved seniors’ well-being, especially when they work out with friends or family members.  Consider joining your loved one for a walk around the neighborhood or assisted living community.


According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), seniors who stay active:
·    Have more energy
·    Improve balance, which lowers risks for falls
·    Prevents hearts disease, diabetes, & serious heart health problems
·    Sustains joint health
·    Reduces their chance for depression
·    Allows independence longer due to maintainence of strength and mobility


Few Exercise Ideas:
·    Walking
·    Gardening
·    Climbing stairs or stepping on aerobic step boxes
·    Swimming or Water Aerobics classes
·    Yoga
·    Biking or stationary bike
·    Resistance Bands (*Great for post therapy)
·    Meditation
·    Leg lifts in chair or wheelchair
·    Light weight dumbbell  exercises (wheelchair friendly)
