Make a habit of doing these workouts and you’ll look and feel your best. – Onward, Jane

Certified instructor description:
Two straight-forward programs that feature a diverse medley of simple strength and balance exercises. Jane clearly understands that she — and many of her followers — have gotten older. So she's designed these workouts to provide age-appropriate moves and benefit-driven cuing (“this move will help prevent falls”). The first workout is the easiest. It includes a blend of standing and sitting exercises (e.g. seated pelvic tilts). The second program is mostly standing; it uses proven moves like bicep curls, lateral raises and hamstring curls. Both workouts end with a soothing sequence of standing and seated stretches. No floorwork. Requires 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2010.
