Exercises for older drivers

Research shows that regular exercise benefits the brain in pivotal ways; “physical activity improves blood flow, memory, and reduces the chance of developing heart disease, stroke, and diabetes” (Cleveland Clinic).  To help keep your mind and body fit while social distancing, AARP Ohio has created a virtual workout series sure to invigorate you and get you smiling.  Read on to learn more!

You can join us at AARP Ohio’s Facebook page every Tuesday at 9 a.m. for Exercise Your Way to Brain Health, a series of energizing LIVE exercise videos led by Rachelle James, CPT (Certified Personal Trainer).  Tune in to take part in workouts that will focus on endurance, strength, balance, flexibility, and more.   

Each 20-30 minute session will consist of different exercises tailored to benefit you physically and mentally. From exercises to help you with your posture, or loosen your hips to beginners salsa.  We recommend you bring a water bottle and wear comfortable clothes and shoes.

Please consult your physician before beginning any exercise program.
