Physical exercise in all forms, even without equipment, is a strenuous physical activity. As such, you should consult your physician or other health care professional before starting this fitness program or any other fitness program to determine if it is right for you. If you are predisposed to a medical condition that may be worsened by physical exercise, please do not start this fitness program. Do not start this fitness program if your physician or health care provider advises against it. If you experience faintness, dizziness, pain or shortness of breath at any time while exercising you should stop immediately.
If you think you are having a medical or health emergency, call your health care professional, or 911, immediately.

New Exercise & Physical Activity Information from NIA
We’re excited to announce that we’re bringing new and updated exercise materials and resources onto the NIA site. You will now be able to access important exercise-related health information directly from the NIA site, as well as free resources to help you on your fitness journey. Since the majority of our exercise content now lives on the NIA site, we will be shutting down the Go4Life site, beginning April 22, 2020. Our exercise videos are still accessible on our YouTube channel and you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter to receive additional health information related to older adults and aging.
We hope you will continue to enjoy our exercise and physical activity content from NIA!
