According to SilverSneakers®, You can stay strong, be safe and maintain your independence by integrating fitness options into your training plan. No matter what your age, the best exercise for you is the one you enjoy the most.
When we’re young, we take staying upright for granted. We don’t really worry about falling—it might not even cross our minds. It’s never too early to start thinking about improving your balance and preventing falls.
What if you’ve already fallen? Start by telling your doctor. Half of older adults who fall don’t tell their doctor—which means injuries can go untreated and a balance problem could get worse. Follow your doctor’s instructions for any treatment or physical therapy and ask how you can exercise safely.

Chair yoga is a great way for older adults to get the wonderful health benefits of yoga. Staying seated means that even frail seniors or those who aren’t flexible can safely do the exercises. Yoga is an excellent way for older adults to loosen and stretch painful muscles, reduce stress, and improve circulation. After the age of 30 we lose 3% to 5% of muscles per decade. But adding weights and resistant bands to your daily exercise can and will rebuild some muscle lost. Muscles helps the body to maintain balance, stability, and improve mobility.
