Finding the Source
There are various ways to stay active and each activity will depend on the individual person but walking at a comfortable pace for you is a simple way to keep the whole body active. Other low-impact activities include water-based exercises which is easier on the joints. If you have access to an indoor pool at a local gym or recreation center, this would be ideal.
If access to an indoor pool is not an option, exercises utilizing a chair or other low-impact exercises that do not put stress on the joints are ideal. These can be found on television, YouTube® or even on DVDs. A resistance band with the lightest resistance is another low-cost expensive.
Often times senior centers or county recreation centers offer classes with the instruction of an expert. In addition to the exercises there is the additional benefit of socialization.
