Seniors & Boomers: These moderate leg and core strength training exercises are safe and easy to learn.  They will help you with your balance and with chores that require lifting. Even 5 minutes of fitness done now and then can make a noticeable difference in how you feel. You can enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle, no matter what your age! Remember, that even with certain limitations, it is possible to exercise for better health. Two out of three of the boomer and senior strength training exercises in this video are demonstrated in a chair. Whether you’re standing or sitting, have fun and work at a level that is right for you!


I hope that you took this 5 minute health break for yourself. If so, how did it go for you? (Leave comment below.)

    Dear Jeannette
    What a great vidio and my legs are getting weaker as I age and I found this to be a great workout.

    My five pound (yep, can still do 5 lbs at 85) weights have been lost for a long, long, long time.

    I was so inspired that I took up a search and just now found them.

    I plan on continuing that great leg exercise, especially, and plan on coming back to see you soon.
    Seeing your darling self makes me miss you more with love Camille

      Hey there Camille,
      You’re the best for chiming in. Congrats on finding your 5 lb weights. Awesome! So glad that you’re going do these leg exercises at home. And so good to know that some of you out there are actually using these little videos that I’m creating. Gratifying. You’re fabulous at 85 FOR SURE! I miss you too and hope to see you soon. With love back to you. 🙂

    Wonderful to get these Wellness tips. I enjoyed doing the exercises and doing them at home makes me more likely to repeat them on my own. THANK YOU!

    Great exercises. Will try to do these on days that I don’t attend your classes. I notice I have to keep moving or I start stiffening up. So grateful for your classes…..
