I was just wondering that same thing myself before I got home from a meeting I had to go to tonight. Please help us……I want a good exercise video for our age and I also have some knee problems, arthritis in my legs (although it’s very manageable) and even have some foot problems. Thanks……

I know what you mean. I have sweated it out a thousand times and still am not seeing great results. So I have decided to try what makes me feel good. And I think I found it. YOGA! Now, don’t scream at me yet. I found a DVD that is for ME and MY BODY. it is called ‘yoga, for the body you have right now.’ The lady who does it is very overweight, but I have found the actual stretching of the yoga makes me feel wonderful! I am doing a few of the yoga positions as I go, but none of them are impossible with MY body and MY age. And there is no sweet little 20 year old dancer doing them and making feel like crap because I can’t lift by feet around my neck. Look on Amazon. That is where I found it. I also found Plus Size Pilates. I haven’t tried it yet…..will keep you posted if you are interested!

The problem with yoga (for me) is that they want you to sit on the floor, and I can’t because of my back. I happened to notice in the activities portion of the local paper, a class for chair yoga. Unfortunately, I couldn’t go that night. Have you ever heard of this? I’d appreciate it if you have some information on this. Glad you found something that works for you.

If you have a YMCA close they provide some wonderful alternatives. They have SilverStreakers the over 50 group has Yoga stretch which can be done sitting and a couple of Aqua exercise programs. They have pilates and several other programs. Cost to join is reasonable. Check it out!
Thank you Bekah, I am interested in checking out what the YMCA has 2 offer. I like the fact that the cost 2 join is reasonable, especially in this economy. I will also inquire about senior discounts while I’m at it. Thanks 2 women such as yourself, I am sooooooooooo glad I found this website.
