Working out with a safe and sensible exercise DVD can do a senior good. At the University of Illinois, Edward McAuley tested a DVD program that focused on flexibility, toning and balance.
McAuley says most of the 307 seniors stayed with it over the six months of the study, and did about as much work as the program required. And he says physical tests showed they wound up in better shape. Continue.
We are still recruiting for the Fit & Active Seniors Trial! Click here to learn more and sign up for this fun, free exercise program!
