Free Online Fitness Session

for older adults

Stronger and fitter 31 March 2021

Led by Jordan, this 33-minute session is for older adults who are looking to get stronger and fitter.

Today you’ll follow a circuit containing four exercises. This will build your strength and improve your cardiovascular fitness. Perform the strength exercises slowly and with control. Doing this will help you perfect your technique and build strong and capable muscles. The cardiovascular movements are performed at a higher intensity, which will help build your cardiovascular conditioning and improve your heart health. Combining these will help you get stronger and fitter, and ready to take on the challenges of everyday life.

We’d love to have your comments on getting stronger and fitter. Don’t forget to subscribe to the Fit For Good YouTube Channel! Please do consider donating to Fit For Good to help us continue to provide 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 sessions are specifically designed to help men and women over 60 take more control over how they age, and enjoy becoming more mobile, stable and 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. During each workout, you gain strength, balance, flexibility and stamina. You work at your own pace and your own ability – although it’s always good to push yourself just slightly to gain maximum benefit.

    Did again so hard on the shoulders though! Especially as you then have your arms up for star jumps! I admit the last lot of star jumps only my feet were moving not my arms!

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
