Well, do I need any special equipment?

Setting up an exercise for the elderly and seniors program at home doesn’t require a lot of investment in equipment.

Unless you really have your heart set on that new all-purpose gym !

All you really need is a sturdy armless dining room or kitchen chair and a few weights.

Make sure you have athletic type shoes that offer good support such as walking or running shoes.

Your clothing should also be comfortable and loose fitting. Find a sturdy kitchen chair to hold on to for balance.

You can use a water bottle or can of fruit juice to lift if you don’t have weights.

If you can afford to purchase small hand weights, try picking up a 2 pound, 3 pound, 5 pound and 8 pound weight.

These will likely serve the needs of a lot of older adult exercisers.

Wow! Now you can answer the question yourself!
