Getting started exercising is the hardest part, but once you begin, your body will love you for it!

Equipment Needed:

  • Chair
  • Resistance Bands – Color matters (Check package to make sure they comply)
    Yellow 4-6 lbs      Green 8-10 lbs      Red 12-14 lbs      Blue 16-18 lbs
  • Ankle weights -Allows you to change the weight from 1-5 lbs based on ability level
  • Dumbbells -Light works well to begin with, and as strength builds, you can increase

*10 and 3 are beginners’ magic numbers – 10 repetitions of each exercise with 3 sets.
