Age UK – Keeping fit at home

Regular physical activity in later life is important for so many reasons, but during the coronavirus pandemic options for exercising have become more limited.

That’s why we’ve put together a list of online exercise resources designed specifically for older people, to help maintain or improve flexibility and fitness while at home.

This NHS page provides information about physical activity for older people and has links to instructor-led videos covering aerobic exercise, strength and resistance, pilates and yoga.
