Free Online Fitness Session
for older adults
Jordan’s session 3 June 2020
Led by Jordan, this 45-minute workout involves some fitness fun with the Star Jump Challenge!
Before that, you’ll be working through four movements that all challenge different areas of your fitness: strength, functional movement patterns, cardiovascular conditioning and balance work. The purpose of this is to mirror movement patterns in everyday life, which are always random and involve different muscle groups working at varying intensities. The end goal here is to make everyday tasks easier as you are conditioning your body to move at different speeds at different intensities without much rest in-between.
After that, you’ll be onto the Star Jump Challenge! How many star jumps can you perform in 20 seconds? Can you repeat this every minute on the minute for the next five minutes? Give it a go, have some fun and let us know how you get on.
We’d love to have your comments on the session and please don’t forget to subscribe to the FIT FOR GOOD YouTube Channel!

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
