4. "I Had a Baby So I..."

Brought Her with Me

"I used to swim five days a week, but now I get my exercise by pushing my daughter's stroller for two miles every day," says 38-year-old stay-at-home mom Patricia Herren of Kihei, Hawaii. "The resistance helps me burn more calories than walking alone would, and I make sure that I walk briskly and cover a lot of hilly terrain so I'm really working my legs and glutes!"

Turned My Living Room into a Gym

"A few days a week I spend an hour either on the treadmill or doing videos while my son's taking a nap," says Tiffany Morton, 33, a real-estate agent in Rockwall, Texas. "I also hired a trainer who designed a strength-training routine and showed me the proper form for a workout using resistance bands, a stability ball, and weights."

I work in a cardiac rehab dept and our avg age of person there doing 30 min of cardio, whether it be pedaling or walking is 60-70. Most of them suffer from arthritis, but pushing themselves, taking their Tylenol RA, and just doing it, they find their arthritis complaints diminish. Shedding those few extra pounds will make a world of difference on those joints and back! Start in a pool so you'll be doing nonweight bearing workouts. Good Luck!

Please include some articles for 50 to 60 year olds. It's ok to exersize when your young but what do you do when you hurt so bad from artheritis & other things that it's hard to get out of bed?Please don't tell me to do sitting in a chair exersizes. They do little to nothing for cardio.
