Mira’s session 7 August 2020

Combine cardio health and mobility with this 50-minute workout led by Mira. Helping to stimulate your body’s natural detox process, the 50-minute session is designed for the over 60s. It will enhance your mobility and achieve better cardiovascular health.

Mira takes you through a fun-filled warm-up using various signature dance style movements to encourage mobility and coordination.

A whole-body workout for cardiovascular endurance follows. This will kickstart your body’s natural detox process and enhance your mobility. You will be introduced to three rounds of body groove movements inspired by the Charleston style dance style. Each round will be slightly harder than the previous round due to decreasing rest periods.

The session ends with a seated stretching routine using some twisting postures with detoxing effect. For example, gentle compression and movement in the torso helps our digestive system move waste and toxins more efficiently.

We’d love to have your comments on the session and 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 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 so 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.

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
