Resistance Band Workout: Senior Fitness on the Road


Hey gang! James and I just shot this brand new workout video at the gorgeous Jordanelle State Park in Utah, and I’m excited to share it with you. I designed the exercises with active seniors in mind, but SERIOUSLY, guys, anyone in good health, any age, and even higher fitness levels can get a beneficial strength workout from following along. Simply use a heavier gauge resistance band more appropriate to your fitness level, and you’ll be set!

  In this exercise video, all you’ll need is a resistance band and a wall or ledge (or picnic table like me!) to hold onto. You can do the workout either in the RV or outside! Don’t have any resistance bands? Then you’ve GOT to get our favorites here: Bodylastics Resistance Bands. We use the Bodylastics brand of bands ourselves because they’re made with high-quality and safety in mind. There’s actually a little cord that runs through each band so that if it were to snap, it wouldn’t come back and hit you in the face…which HAS happened with my personal training clients using the house bands at the gym I train at. Plus the Bodylastics brand of bands are super inexpensive and carry easily even in small Class B’s like ours. As you choose which band to use for the workout, make sure you find a resistance band that’s strong enough to challenge you and get you a little uncomfortable, but not so difficult that you can’t use good form to do the exercises. Do a little experimenting to find the band tension that’s right for you. I’ve had some requests for some longer workout videos, so those of you who spoke up, this one’s for you! But don’t let the length of it scare you away, it’s just a little over 20 minutes…a perfect length for a strength and coordination building workout, especially when you pair it up with a 30 minute walk in the same day! I hope you’ll join me for a super fun full body workout that’ll work all your major muscle groups, leaving you energized and ready for whatever travel adventures await! Stay fit on the road!

        Hi Annie! I don’t have a printable version of this one, but I’m going to add it to my To Do list because it’s a good idea! But be warned, my To Do list is long, lol. Glad you find the video useful! Keep those workouts coming!

      Love the workout routines and I’ve been doing these now most days for about six months. Do you have a similar, but different routine, so that I can ring the changes every now and then? I would love to carry on with a comparable but different routine. Hope you can help!

        So glad they’ve been helpful, Phil! Besides the workouts already under the “workouts” tab on the website, I haven’t filmed any new ones recently…BUT! Now you’ve got it in my head to do so! I’ll try to put some new stuff up very soonly…so be on the lookout!

          Hi Stef! Thanks for your reply and I’ll look out for any new stuff you manage to film. Will be on holiday soon with our caravan (towed RV?) and taking my resistance bands along.

      Love love love! Just got my bands yesterday and am planning to sneak into an empty office during lunch to do this routine – short and sweet and I like it a lot!

      Hmm. And what does a senior do who would fall over if he or she tried those lunges? I walk with a quad cane because my balance is not the best. If I go down, it’s 911 to get me on my feet again.

        There are definitely different levels of senior fitness. You’ll notice at the top I mentioned this one was designed for “active” seniors. But the great news is that it’s never too late to start a fitness program, and with practice, balance can improve. Best of luck on your fitness journey.
