Summary

Summary

Charlene Torkelson offers a unique, low-impact program that can be done completely from a chair. The safe, effective workouts are perfect for people who need exercise but cannot place undue stress on their cardiovascular systems or bones and joints. The book includes: easy-to-follow directions; photographs for each exercises that can be done with or without weights; and a checklist for monitoring progress.

After an aerobic warm-up, Torkelson offers a 60-minute regimen as well as shorter workouts. Tips for problem areas, deep breathing, and stretches round out this healthful program.
