Fitness for the Over 50s Volume 2 (3 DVD) Box Set
Exercise Preparation - It’s never too late to start! This programme is aimed at two groups of people - complete beginners who have never taken part in sport; and older people who, after a health issue, wish to resume a progressive physical activity. The DVD offers easy to do exercises. They can all be done either standing or, for those for whom standing is painful, while sitting in a chair. Thanks to this programme, you’ll be sure of the complete physical upkeep of your body, and especially of maintaining the mobility of your joints for as long as possible.
Morning Stretching - Maintain your body’s wellbeing every day. In this programme Nancy takes you through three stretching sessions of 20 minutes each, to do every morning and start your day off well. Stretching is a discipline which combines muscle contraction and stretching, to gently make you supple without pain. All the suggested exercises can be done easily, and all pursue the same objective of daily wellbeing. To complement the stretching sessions there are balance and breathing exercises designed for the specific needs of older people.
Balance and Co-ordination - Rediscover how good it feels to have balance! This programme’s aim is to improve balance and help prevent falls. After a basic session, aimed at keeping in good physical shape, there are workshops which bring into play different reflexes: balance, speed of reaction, sensory information and floor contact. The DVD is divided into 2 parts: a basic session of around 25 minutes focused on flexibility and muscle strengthening and seven specific workshops, of around 5 minutes each, dealing with balance and co-ordination.
