So, after doing a little research, I found a Silver Sneakers class at my local senior center. It seemed like the perfect starting place for someone who hadn't been to a gym in ten years. I was right. It's great! The class consists of a variety of people with varying degrees of fitness. Everyone works at his or her own pace, using equipment provided by the facility. I always work up a sweat.
Here are the instruments of torture we use.
We refer to this chart to assess how hard we're working.
I've increased the weights I use in the workout from two pounds to three pounds, which isn't a lot but it's an improvement. Speaking of pounds, I haven't lost any weight, but I do have more upper body strength and stamina. I've also met a lot of nice people. The classes are actually fun.
