YOUR BEST LIFE: with Lisa Capone

Jan 11, 2024

Get Moving

Lisa CaponeStaying active is key to health and well-being at any age…but even more so as we grow older. It can be difficult to get motivated when you’re on your own. However, with their range of fitness programs, senior living
communities make it easy to start— and stick to—a workout routine.

Low-Impact Activities. Walking, chair aerobics and cycling are gentle on your joints but still provide excellent cardiovascular benefits when performed properly. Strength Training. You don’t need to lift heavy weights to reap the rewards of strength training. Using your own body weight, resistance bands or light dumbbells can help you maintain muscle mass and bone density as you age.

Flexibility. Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi do more than increase your range of motion. They also improve hand-eye coordination and balance, which helps prevent falls.

Even when it’s cold outside, you can stay active when you live in a senior living community that offers fitness classes, exercise programs and workout equipment just steps from your living space.
