No equipment exercise program for the 50+ - 2/10

Week Two of a Ten Week series: Core strength

Vintage Fitness is an in home personal training company which inspires movement in the 50+ in Toronto. 

Clients often ask us for easy exercises which are appropriate for someone over 50 that require minimal equipment which they can do at home or in their condo gym.

This is the second week of a ten week blog series filled with exercise pictures and videos.  The focus this week is on core strength.  There are pictures as well as videos for each exercise.  If you have questions drop me a note erin@vintagefitness.ca

If you are not able to do exercises from the floor email me or give me a call 416-951-7978 and I will send you a core program that is seated.
