Certified instructor description:
Separate upper and lower-body workouts plus a soothing relaxation segment. Both toning programs focus on strength, balance, flexibility and bone health. Many of these moves also emphasize "functional fitness" — exercises designed to make everyday activities easier and safer. Each workout begins with simple stretch and flexibility movements (e.g. "wrist rolls" to minimize arthritis discomfort). That's followed by a varied mix of classic and seniors-specific toning exercises (e.g. from traditional squats and overhead presses to seated bicep curls and modified push-ups). The ending segment is pure bliss — lying-on-your-back guided relaxation ("feel the tension leaving your legs"). ©2011.
