Gentle Exercise DVDs

You are never too old to exercise! With our DVDs you can exercise your body and mind in a fun and effective way from the comfort of your own home.

Exercise can improve circulation and strengthen muscles and joints, helping you maintain mobility. Our DVDs are especially designed for older people, or those with restricted mobility.

They are also a great resource for activity leaders, carers or adult children to help encourage the older people they care for to get moving.

Advice: Healthy living for older people

Keeping active makes us feel more energetic but it also helps to:
  • manage¬†high blood pressure¬†and angina
  • keep you at a¬†healthy weight
  • maintain regular¬†bowel movements
  • stimulate a poor appetite
  • strengthen muscles and bones, reducing the risk of falls and fractures
  • ease discomfort if you have¬†arthritis¬†or¬†Parkinson's.
Regular exercise also boosts the brain chemicals that lift your mood and make you feel happy ‚Äď so it can be a good way to deal with stress and anxiety.
