Bicycle or walk with your spouse or friend. Swim or take a water or low-impact aerobics class at your senior center, local YMCA or health club. Play tennis or racquetball with a buddy. Dancing can also provide you with a fun way to Ret aerobic exercise.
Before beginning any exercise routine, talk to your doctor. When you begin exercising, start gradually and slowly build up your endurance and stamina. Be sure to stretch before and after you exercise. And make sure you use the proper clothing and equipment for the activity.
