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

Vigorous Cardio Activities for Older Adults

If you have some experience with cardio exercise and have increased your endurance to at least a moderate level, these activities may be safe for you to do.

People who have been inactive for a long time or who have certain health risks should not start with these activities. Remember to get your health care provider’s approval before beginning any form of exercise.

  • Climbing stairs or hills
  • Shoveling snow
  • Brisk bicycling up hills
  • Digging holes

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