This enjoyable routine is choreographed using exercises from the very popular exercise at home book, Moving For Life Your Way. These exercises are designed to improve cardiovascular fitness, coordination, strength, balance and flexibility. This routine will take you through warming up, cooling down and will incorporate over 25 different evidence-based exercises for the whole body. Suitable for older people with a range of abilities.
Some exercises use a resistance band or hand weights. If you do not have this equipment you will still be able to participate in most of the exercises.
