Full Backcover Description

The Older and Much Wiser Workout is a gentle, safe workout that is perfect for beginners or those that have not been exercising regularly. All of the exercises are done either standing or sitting on a chair. (No lying down on the floor.)

This fun, well-rounded workout includes the four vital components of fitness: 1) Easy to follow low impact aerobics, 2) gentle strength training, 3) balance and gaze stabilization, 4) relaxing cool down and stretch.

You may mix and match these different sections depending on how much time you have and how you are feeling each day. In addition, you will see three different levels for each exercise, so you will be able to ‘customize’ this workout to meet your particular needs. You’ll love the upbeat encouragement and helpful cues, and you will be amazed at how quickly you progress!

‘This DVD actually makes exercise Fun! This enjoyable workout will be your favorite – it is fresh, innovative, and effective. The carefully designed exercises are easy to follow, safe and a perfect way to stay fit and vibrant. Sue and her ‘Back Up Babes’ are obviously having a great time doing this workout, and you will too! A must for home exercisers!’- Gary Gray, PT CEO Gray Institute

Buy this DVD or start Streaming here

A totally non-threatening seniors program that covers three major fitness elements: aerobics, toning and balance. But you don't have to do the entire workout. The DVD is designed to let you play the individual segments you want. The cardio is all low-impact and easy-to-follow. It ranges from simple mambos and step touches to gentle agility and sports exercises. The toning uses a chair and a resistance band to build strength and flexibility. The balance exercises focus on techniques that can be used in day-to-day activities. Sue Grant is a skilled, supportive instructor who emphasizes safe and effective form. Her exercisers are 60 and 80 years old. Requires a 5-foot resistance band. ©2010.
