Everybody knows that it’s good to exercise but it’s easy to forget that heavy training isn’t for everyone. There are lots of people out there who suffers from various types of rheumatism, fibromyalgia and other diseases that makes it difficult to participate in heavy forms of training. This doesn’t mean it’s impossible to exercise though, the important thing is to find a type of training that is gentle on the joints. I’ve done some research and here are a few types of low impact strenght training that should be perfectly suitable whether you’re young or old, perfectly healthy or recovering from injuries or diseases.

  • Swimming – This is a great exercise since it lets you train your muscles and get fit without putting pressure on the joints. It’s great for the heart rate and it’s a very flexible way of exercising since you can swim in a indoor pool or in a lake and you can switch between various swim styles.
  • Yoga – You can stretch your body and make your muscles stronger with yoga and it’s very gentle on the body. This is great for your physical health as well as the mental health.
  • Cross-training – This is a perfect way to improve performance and flexibility and you will also get stronger muscles. You can give everything you have for an hour without putting too much pressure on the body.

These are just a few of the things you can do to get healthy and fit. Start with your favorite among them and go from there. Soon you’ll be able to take your training to a new level and new sports will be waiting for you.

About the author

My name is Tezz and I'm a 29-years-old mother of 2. I spend most of my time at soccer practice, hockey practice or floor ball practice with my sons, but I also enjoy exercising myself. I love zumba, aerobics, jogging and of course power walking. My interest in health and training has grown since I became a mom. It all started when I wanted to lose a few extra pounds that I gained during my pregnancies, but it increased to become an honest interest in exercising and today I find it important to have a healthy lifestyle. I've also worked as a skincare consultant for a couple of years and I love beauty related topics just as much as health related topics. I love makeup and skincare and I'm looking forward to share my hobbies with you!
