Course Description

The goal of this course is for participants to develop several well-rounded workouts they can perform at home using fitness equipment they have accumulated over the years. Household objects like step stools and sacks of sugar can be used, whereas resistance tools like tubes with handles may need to be ordered. Stability balls (i.e. swiss balls or physio balls) make great platforms for seated core and strength training but chairs and mats can be used instead. We will focus on three basic components of fitness that allow us to keep aging actively: endurance (aerobics), flexibility, and strength. A website built especially for this course will provide links to workouts participants will learn during class and can use on their own, as well as links to resources such as inspirational articles and current wellness research. Some popular fitness apps also will be introduced. • Active participation.
