About this workshop

When working with older exercisers, programs need to be adjusted, sometimes dramatically, to accommodate those with limited mobility. Using light hand-held weights, this workout, developed by the Merrithew™ team, targets core strength and stability along with peripheral joint mobilisation from a seated position.

Exercises are designed to re-connect mind and body, target and improve the functional capacity of the older participant through graded strength training, proprioceptive awareness, and joint range of motion, as well as bring about a general sense of well-being.

Discover how to maximise functional health, balance, coordination, and flexibility in a workout to keep the body moving.
