Low impact exercise video program
If you’re new to exercise it can be hard to find the right online class to suit your needs. We’ve partnered with local Exercise Scientist Bree Filippone to create a low impact, beginners exercise video program you can do from home.
Find a space in your home, inside or out, where you can move freely. Get your simple equipment ready and a bottle of water to hydrate as you go.
Each 20-minute workout starts with a warm up then moves into the exercise component, all guided by Bree. She will even give you advice on how to make the exercise easier or more challenging depending on your needs and ability.
Finish your session with a cool down walk and stretch.
You can keep track of your progress using the Active Geelong physical activity recording sheet.
We recommend you seek the advice of your doctor or health professional before starting an exercise program. Please see full disclaimer below.
