We have another amazing Fitness Video from the  Canadian Centre for Activity and Aging to help us stay active at home. Below the video is information they want you to know.

Let us introduce you to Debbie.

“CCAA certified senior fitness instructor, Debbie, leads participants through a 30-minute easy-to-follow exercise routine that includes warm-up, low-impact cardio workout (no jumping), cool-down and stretching.”

Best Practices
Ensure that the exercise space in your home is a safe environment for movement, for example, your space is free of tripping hazards such as cords and scatter rugs.
Wear proper athletic footwear and comfortable clothing that allows you to move around freely.

Exercise at a moderate- to vigorous-intensity level. You should feel like the exercise is challenging but not so difficult that you can’t talk.

Aim for 10 to 30 minutes of cardiorespiratory exercise per day. Current recommendations state that older adults should perform 150 minutes of moderate-intensity cardiorespiratory exercise per week.

Any amount of cardiorespiratory activity is beneficial for heart health. However, when you exercise for longer periods and more consistently the functional benefits are more likely to be maintained or improved.

Don’t forget to review the disclaimer and if possible chat with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program.
