Hi, we're looking into partnering with another organisation and getting some good exercise content on the site. If we do manage it, what sort of videos would you most like to see? smile

Many I think may need chair exercises.

Agreed Charleygirl. I mentioned that when you asked before Gransnet. I'm sure it would be popular.

Also some not too strenuous but fun dancing/exercise to good music. I love Dancing Queen.

That sounds interesting, thank you, GNHQ! I’m already enjoying the Walk a Mile ones. Very useful for when you can’t get out and need to get at least a few steps on the MiFit. smile

Something similar for two or three miles, maybe?

Vinyasa yoga please

Gaunt47 Wed 25-Mar-20 18:47:59

Perhaps stretching exercises - they are good for standing and sitting.

Tai chi please

anna7 Wed 25-Mar-20 20:20:47

Pilates please

There’s one exercise that I do

Stand with arms out, 1 potato bag in each hand, gently drop your arms, bring arms up level with your shoulders do this twice and do it slowly, careful not to strain. Do this morning and evening.

Each day gradually build up so that you are doing it 10 times .

The following day put some potatos in each bag.........

Zumba Gold please. Lots of great music to get down to.

shysal Thu 26-Mar-20 17:13:54

Move it or Lose it. Contains options for different abilities.

Agree Zumba Gold wold be great!

anniezzz09 Thu 26-Mar-20 18:16:11

Good quality tai chi, I could suggest some names.....

mrswoo Thu 26-Mar-20 19:23:58

Zumba Gold for me too. It would be really uplifting- and no one will notice if you don’t get all the steps right!

Treebee Thu 26-Mar-20 19:43:34

Pilates please, I’m missing being told what to do. I have my own routine but I know I could push myself more.

Eloethan Thu 26-Mar-20 22:25:49

Zumba Gold

Maybellex Thu 26-Mar-20 22:52:28

Dancing like ballroom and Latin.

I’ve just been on the apps store looking for exercise regimes.
I am usually quite active but am, like many of you, stuck in at the moment.
Obviously everyone will have their favourite so you are between a rock and a hard place.
I have discovered that I’d like something that incorporates a bit of Pilates for my core, a bit of Zumba to get my heart going and some stretching exercises.
All of this to be delivered in a professional, friendly but not effusive way.

My kind of humour 👍😂😂😂

I'm awake and going for a 'sneaky' run after I finish my coffee. This is in addition to my 'official' exercise allowance which I will take later today.
No patrols here anyway. 🤫🤭😄

My elders love Line Dancing vids (and Line Dancing itself)

Personally, I wish the boot scootin' and the dismal C&W music would line dance right out the door.

Oopsadaisy3 smile my kind of exercise but I wouldn't be adding any potatoes to the bags!!!
