Free Online Fitness Session
for older adults
Mira’s session 29 May 2020
Led by Mira, this is a 45-minute full-body, medium to high-intensity workout that will benefit your balance, range of movement and coordination along with overall strength, core and cardio fitness.
Mira takes you through a fun warm-up using a paper plate to encourage a better range of movement and stimulate your coordination. The session continues with a holistic workout for balance with a combination of static and dynamic balance exercises. This is followed by a whole-body strength, cardio and core training combo for functional strength, core and cardio endurance. It is based on a selection of compound exercises and a method called ‘pyramids’ to build your stamina and improve overall fitness. The session ends with a short efficient stretching routine.

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
