Free Online Fitness Session

for older adults

Jordan’s session 28 October 2020

Led by Jordan, this session is for over 60s who are looking for a balanced full body workout.

During the 30-minute session, you’ll be performing five different exercises that work five different areas of fitness – a cardiovascular exercise for heart health, a static hold to improve balance, an upper body exercise to improve shoulder strength, a core exercise for midline stabilisation, and a functional movement that will help strengthen daily movement patterns. What’s even better about this balanced full body workout is that the circuit is incorporated into the warm up. Consequently, you’ll get to practice these movements at a lower intensity. This will allow you to work to your full potential when it comes to the main part of the session.

To finish the session you’ll have a relaxing stretch to help you cool down safely.

We’d love to have your comments on the session. Don’t forget to subscribe to the FIT FOR GOOD YouTube Channel! Please do consider donating to FIT FOR GOOD so that we can carry on providing FREE sessions.

What is FIT FOR GOOD?

Research supports the fact that regular exercise is vital to good health and helps control the ageing process. FIT FOR GOOD is a programme specifically designed to help men and women over 60, of all abilities, take more control over how they age and enjoy becoming more mobile, more stable and more socially active.

Although we all understand that exercise is essential for living well into old age, it’s hard to find a way to make it part of daily life. FIT FOR GOOD sessions aim to help you enjoy healthier, happier ageing. Our professional trainers guide you. You gain strength, balance, flexibility and stamina during each workout. You work at your own pace and your own ability – although it’s always good to push yourself just slightly to gain maximum benefit.

    Found this quite challanging as I was using dumbbells on all exercies. Doing the standing yoga recovery from 29th July today really helps with the stiff shoulders and aching thighs

    I really enjoyed this work out Jordan, thank you.
    I liked the option to taylor the activities according to ability.
    I will do this one again!

    Did this again thanks Jordan. As I am doing 3 sessions a week I am having to repeat sessions! I used to do some of Miras but she seems to only be doing seated ones now.

MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR SESSION

Fit For Good online sessions are a convenient, enjoyable way of improving your fitness and helping to increase your strength, stability and balance.

To make the most of each session:

  • Position your computer, laptop, iPad or phone on a stable surface near where you will be working. If you can get YouTube on your television, that's another option
  • Check the floor where you are exercising is not slippery and that there is nothing you could trip over
  • Wear loose clothing and comfortable trainers or shoes
  • Keep a glass or bottle of water to hand to ensure you stay hydrated
  • Have a chair or other stable object to hold onto if necessary
  • Place your weights - whether they are actual dumbbells, cans of beans, bottles of water or whatever works for you - where you can easily reach them, but won't trip over them
  • Exercise within your comfort zone, pausing the video whenever you need to rest or hydrate
  • Play background music if it helps you relax
