It’s Day 17 of the WALK Off the Weight for Women over 50 series, and today we’re inviting a plain ole chair🪑 to our workout, and taking on the dynamic duo of STRETCHING and BALANCE!
Here are the FAST FACTS: ALL standing, NO jumping | Sturdy CHAIR | MODERATE day | INCLUDES warm up and cool down
It’s a gentle routine that has loads of HEALTH BENEFITS😍, and we’re moving at a pace that leaves you feeling peaceful and ready to take on the rest of your day🌞.

My friends, I don’t know about you, but for me STRETCHING has definitely been an acquired taste🍴, yet I can’t deny how amazing💟 I feel after a workout like this. And of course we all know how important these kinds of moves are to our body as we age.
I’ve grown to appreciate workouts that allow us to not only EXPAND OUR MUSCLES🦵, but to EXPAND OUR MIND💭 as well by changing things up.
In today’s workout, we’re improving FLEXIBILITY, increasing our RANGE OF MOTION, and maintaining our STRENGTH as we move gently from one exercise to another, with moderate walking👟 in between. It’s active aging at its finest!
And although we’re using a chair, we’re getting bonus balance⚖ and brain🧠 work, too. THIS is a great way to round out your exercise regimen as you move toward your WEIGHT LOSS goal🏆!
Grab a chair and join me for a FUN WORKOUT that’s anything but ordinary!
I shopped my own workout clothing drawer for today’s bright outfit! Both pieces are well over five years old. (Want proof? Check out this running warm up – https://youtu.be/TEBJsRaz8xo – or this full body warm up – https://youtu.be/JshANfmnSec – which are from 2015 and 2016 respectively 😅)
Check out the list of exercises below, then follow along with me in real time with the full-length video.
