I just learned about Functional Fitness and was wondering if anyone has any specific exercises that an older female could do safely. When I mean "older" I talking early 60s. I want to learn to do exercises that would mimic my everyday activities: walking up & down stairs, reaching for items up in a cabinet, getting up and down from a chair, etc. Get the idea? I would love to hear from anyone if you have suggestions or know of a website that show any functional exercises.
