Moderate Cardio Exercise Activities for Older Adults
If you've been inactive for awhile, it's best to start with a small amount of cardio exercise, and to limit your exercise to activities that require a moderate amount of endurance.

Here are some examples of moderate endurance activities for the average older adult:

  • Walking briskly on a level surface
  • Swimming
  • Gardening, mowing, or raking the lawn
  • Cycling on a stationary bicycle
  • Bicycling outdoors on a level surface

Remember to get your health care provider's approval before beginning any form of exercise.
