Should I check with my doctor before doing senior exercise?

Consult a professional and choose an exercise program that suits your needs and goals.

Always consult with your doctor, physical therapist or other health care professional before you decide on an elderly exercise program. Factors that need to be considered include your age, the severity of your osteoporosis, other medical conditions from which you might suffer, the medications you take, your initial fitness level, and your health and fitness goals. Generally, functional training that focuses on developing your balance and whole-body stability will be a good foundation upon which you can layer other cardiovascular activities or strength training exercises to achieve your specific set of goals.
