A quick Google search of "how to start exercising" reveals endless information about weight loss, weight training, and running. What do you do when your immediate goals are things like:
- Getting out of bed without your back acting up
- Spending more time in the garden without your knees hurting
- Keeping up with and playing with your 3-year-old grandchild
- Improve your mood
Often, new exercisers and active agers are cautious when deciding on a new exercise routine for two reasons:
- Burdened by options: there's yoga, resistance training, Couch to 5k, functional training, HITT, weight training, low-impact, CrossFit®, Pilates, interval, and swimming….
- Trying to figure out what to do has already exhausted you. Caution: the last thing you want is to try a new activity only to feel worse the next day.
Pilates For New Exercisers And Active Agers is a suitable first step.
This is a 3-class, self-paced course that will lay down and then build on foundational movement basics. So no matter what exercise or activity you choose, your body will be onboard and gain the maximum benefit.

In this class, you'll learn new, and more challenging, exercises that build on what you've already learned.
