Recently, a loyal Gazette reader did exactly that, seeking my advice on her wellness goals. She is a 62-year-old grandmother and wants help with finding exercises that will help her keep up with her two young grandchildren; one is 2 and the other is 2 months old. This grandmother also is intimidated by gyms and is in search of finding a routine she can stick to.
Since there are plenty of grandparents out there, I decided to share some of the advice I would have given this reader directly in hopes it will help anyone wanting ways to increase their stamina, flexibility and strength .
Plus, I understand how it can be intimidating to start a workout routine in a packed athletic club environment. So below are a few low-impact options to get you moving that don’t require a gym membership. Again, make sure to consult a doctor before starting any workout routine.
