Seniors Zoom Fitness Classes

Zoom Fitness Classes What you Need To Know!

Senior Women exercising with hand weights

Is Zoom for Me?

Zoom & Virtual fitness classes are still relatively new.  Between 60% and 65% of my Chair & Pilates Classes prefer to attend the class in person.

Why?

  • They have the time
  • They like the social aspect of the Class.
  • Some find the technology is daunting.

The Zoomers who Exercise

The Zoomers do the class for various reasons:

 

  • No Travel Time
  • No Parking Fees
  • Convenient
  • Accountability
  • Fun
  • You can do them when you are away from home, on holidays or babysitting.
  • Self-Paced
  • They still feel part of the Group
  • Accountability

There is a growing trend towards participants doing  classes in person and Online.   The Grey Nomads that leave to travel during the year like the fact they can still participate while travelling and still exercise with their friends.

Getting Started

We Connect

We will have a chat via Zoom to discuss your goals, current health, fitness & Injuries. 

Yes, the initial meeting is on Zoom so if you are not sure how to connect, we will make this happen.

First Class

I would suggest logging on about 15 minutes earlier if you are new to Zoom.  I will be there waiting to assist with any connectivity issues. 

Please note I will be unavailable to help you within 5 minutes of the class starting.

Caution

  • Start Slower
  • Work on Posture, full range of Movement and Technique
  • Alternate between easy and harder options
  • Take breaks when you need them.
  • Stay Hydrated
  • Talk to your Doctor

Medications

There are many benefits to exercising such as more energy, balance, well-being, mental alertness and a reduction in medications.

Always talk to your Doctor before commencing an exercise program.

Be mindful of the medications you are taking, as exercise can cause side effects such as:

  • Drowsiness
  • Dry mouth
  • Excessive sweating
  • Fatigue
  • Increased heart rate
  • Elevated blood pressure
  • Tremors
  • Risk of over heating
  • Excessive sweating causing dehydration
  • Changes in Blood pressure
  • Stomach Pain
  • Cramping

If you experience any of the above, stop immediately and see your Doctor.

(Disclaimer:  I am not a Doctor and this advice is general. Always discuss the impact of exercise in regard to your mediations with your Doctor).

With Consitency to exercise and a healthy lifestyle you may see your Doctor reducing your medication.

Conclusion

To create a good fitness habit, start slow and be consistent. Once you have been training for a few weeks then start to build the intensity. 

Your feedback is important to me.   Please phone, email or text your progress or concerns.

Be Healthy, Sharon
