Publisher's Summary

If you are a senior and you want to gain core strength and stability, then keep reading.

Do you struggle with everyday tasks from getting out of bed in the morning to losing your balance when you are cleaning your house, or maybe you just don’t have the energy that you used to? This is very common in the senior population. My grandparents were slowing down and had difficulty mowing their lawn and cleaning their house. I really wanted to make a difference because I hated seeing them decline when they still had so much life to live. I helped them incorporate some of these core strengthening techniques and exercises; they now have more energy and are able to perform these tasks much easier. Sometimes it just takes education and a little encouragement to make big changes in your life.

A study was done by physiotherapist Nishad Abdul Latheef Majida on a group of seniors over the age of 65. The seniors were given a core-strengthening exercise program for six weeks, and the overall results demonstrated that the core-strengthening program improved functional mobility, improved balance, and decreased the risk for falls.

In this book, you will discover: 

  • The key to strengthening your core to decrease fall risks. 
  • How to create your own daily exercise routine. 
  • How to perform core exercises using proper form to decrease injury.
  • Ways to reshape your mind and look at your fitness journey with a positive outlook. 
  • How to make smart and helpful habits. 
  • How to create core exercises for whatever skill level you may be at.
  • Ways to make you feel and act younger through exercise.

You can have a strong core and increase your energy levels and improve your balance, even if you have tried other exercise routines and failed before.

If you want to increase your core strength, then scroll up and click "Buy Now". 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Very helpful for senior!

I got this book for my mom. I think this really suitable exercise for her that she can do at home and don’t have to use any special equipment much like gyms. I like the accompanied PDF with this audio book which is really helpful. Especially with all the pictures of exercises for her which is easy to follow. I’d recommend for senior.

Excellent for the basics

I'm researching good resources to try and get my folks active again. I believe this book can absolutely help them. They are 70 years old and really can't move their bodies very well currently. This book addresses how they can take small steps and slowly build a new habit in order to take healthy steps again. The attached PDF with illustrations for the various exercises is very helpful, and it will help me encourage them.

Core busting!

I listened to this book with my nan, and I am in love with it! There is so much content in here for seniors. I love the chapter on the 7-day exercise routine. It was super easy to follow and something me and my nan did together. The descriptions are very detailed to help guide all ages but I did quite like the chair exercises which my nan has committed to doing every day! A great listen!

Explore your core with these exercises

If you want to understand your feelings and desires then keep up exercising. That, bodily movements, is your life source when you think about it.

I learned that you don’t need to work out till you’re soaked in sweat. Keep yourself healthy with an adequate amount of bodily movements.

When you do core exercises, your Immune system is supposed to get better and the body is able to ward off diseases. Those are among the many things that I learned listening to this audiobook. This book is not just for elders but can work for people who’ve been sedentary for a long while. This is a good way to get started. Because If you have been sedentary for a long time and you suddenly throw yourself in strenuous exercise you can get injured.

I really liked the accompanying pdf. It’s indispensable and every move was explained in the audiobook in an easy to follow manner. There are so many insights for exercise in this book, that is in and of itself motivating to become a more active you. Highly recommended!

Good book

I got this book for my aunt. It helps her to get started with her routine and motivates her to keep moving more. It's a good book that covers all everything you need for seniors from chair exercise, standing exercise, and routine.

Very informative and motivating!

This book contains good news for seniors! It's great to know that even if the person did not exercise prior to senior age, it's not too late to begin an exercise program to ensure strength and stability. The author motivates and encourages everyone at any age to begin an exercise routine. She outlines a three-week program with different exercises for each day with one rest day a week.
It's great to know that regular exercises will improve not only physical but also emotional and mental health at any age. Great narration as well!

Got this for my dad!

My dad is elderly, although active, limited on what exercises he can perform due to his age. I am his main carer, so I was glad to come across this book. I am now teaching my dad key exercises which will deliver the best return on health and longevity. My chapter1 was my favourite and I took away a lot of lessons not only for my dad, but also myself to start practicing today. This is great overall health/lifestyle book for the middle aged and elderly folk. Highly recommended.

Just what I needed and more!

You will be shocked with how important core strength is. I am very thankful that my friend gave me this book so that I can reduce my risk of falling and other injuries. The author does a great job showing you how to do the exercises safely and gives you tricks to make it part of your daily routine. Highly recommend to anyone who doesn't do a lot of exercise and might be scared to start now. This book will give you the confidence to start improving your energy level and balance today with small, easy exercises.

A caring book!

Seniors will enjoy reading this book! While a person who has never exercised before senior age can begin an exercise program to maintain strength and stability at any age, it's great to know that it's never too late. Further, this book teaches us how to exercise regardless of our age; we are all capable of living a healthier life and we need to take care of our bodies through diet and exercise. I highly recommend this audiobook. It is super-helpful. Definitely worth the listen.

Keep active

The best resource for anyone who isn’t as young as they used to be! If you’re looking to get active and strengthen your core! Step-by-step instructions on how to get started. Training, and keeping mobile as we age is essential. Works really well as an audiobook. Nice work, Ruth!

Great book!

I was looking for something for my mum for her to follow as she is not as active as she used to be.

This book has lots of advice and tips for seniors to be as active as they feel comfortable to build muscle strength. My mum's personal favourite is the chair exercises chapter.

She likes this book as she can listen and follow the directions easily.

A great resource to have for all seniors.
