Workout Videos for Women Over 50

Have you ever heard the phrase “train smarter, not harder”? Well, never could that phrase be truer than for those of us who are over the age of 50.

At Get Healthy U TV, we know this and we are locked and loaded to give women over the age of 50 an abundance of fun, smart workout videos that can be done right in the comfort of their own home alongside trainers who know both how to teach and as well as how to have fun no matter what decade you reside in!

We make the videos to feel like you have companions going alongside you every step of the way. Throughout your younger years you likely chose your workouts based on what was fun, what your friends were doing, or what the latest fitness trend was.

With age, however, we see the need to be more selective with what we put our bodies through. After all, there is a reality that sets in – your body is not the same!

Working Out Over 50

It is undeniable that our bodies change with age and no matter how hard we may resist, an aging body needs to be treated differently than a young body.

More care and concern must go into how we treat our joints, bones and connective tissue. We no longer live under the illusion that we are impervious.

Suddenly it becomes extremely important to care for the body like the precious gift that it is. Our once-thought-of Teflon surface suddenly becomes a delicate jewel.

Benefits of Working Out Over 50

On the other hand, working out is never more important than when we pass the big five-oh, particularly for women.

Suddenly we are dealing with things like arthritis, decreased flexibility, increased risk of injury and the dreaded symptoms of menopause! Yikes!

Luckily, the benefits of exercise only increase with age. Along with younger-body benefits like calorie-burning and toning, you can add to the mix benefits like:

  • Increased quality of life
  • Stronger bones and connective tissue
  • Better mental health
  • Improved cognitive function and memory
  • Reduced risk of illnesses such as:

Heart Disease

So how do we balance the desire for exercise, and all the benefits that come alongside it, with the reality of aging and the need to protect our precious bodies?

It’s simple: “Train smarter, not harder”!

The below workout videos are ready to do just that with low-impact options, metabolism-boosting workout videos, and even workouts designed to reduce menopausal belly fat.

Let’s go!

1. Low-Impact Workout Videos

These workouts use low impact exercises to help you build strength, improve cardio and get an overall great workout without all the pounding that comes alongside things like jumping and running.

These videos pay special attention to preserving joints, especially knees and hips, as well as helping you treat your back with more care.

Of course, don’t confuse low impact with low intensity! You can work hard and sweat like a high-performing athlete without slamming your body around!

We offer choices for beginners and exercise fanatics alike! Here are just a few:

Indoor Power Walking

This low-impact series gives you some fun indoor walking mixed with plenty of other exercises. Geared more toward the beginner/intermediate level, you are going to get workouts like an interval walk, core strength workout, full body toning workout and fat burning cardio walk.

LIFT- Low Impact Functional Training

Our LIFT series was designed for those desiring low-impact training with challenging exercises that will change and shape your body. This series includes both an upper body and lower body workout, a cardio/core challenge, as well as a yoga/pilates fusion workout. Options are provided to meet the needs of all levels.

Low Impact Barre Cardio Workout

Whether you love barre-style workouts or have never heard of them before, you will LOVE this one! In just 10 minutes, you’ll strengthen and tone your legs while working your cardio and burning some major calories. Barre cardio is a fun change!

2. Metabolism-Boosting Workout Videos

Most people notice their metabolism slowing down with age. Loss of muscle mass and slower moving bodies can account for some of this.

The two exercise solutions to boost a slowing metabolism are strength training and interval training. Strength training is needed because as more muscle is packed on, more calories are burned day in and day out.

The second piece of the puzzle is performing high intensity interval training (“HIIT”) a couple times a week. Getting your heart rate higher in short spurts makes your workout shorter, but makes the metabolism work for an extended period of time afterwards. Here are some fun ways to try these!

HIIT It Hard

Our HIIT it Hard series of workouts gives you several different high intensity workouts including core HIIT, upper body HIIT, lower body HIIT, total body HIIT. Each workout is 30 minutes in length and designed for intermediate/advanced students. Plenty of low impact options are provided as well.

Serious Strength

Our Serious Strength series tries to encourage you to pick up some heavy weights! So many women are under the notion that heavy weights are going to make them bulk up or that they are too delicate for anything more than 5 or 8 pounds. But reality shows us that lifting heavier weights is the way to add muscle (not bulk) which not only shapes and tones your muscle, but also helps boost your metabolism. Muscle is active tissue burning calories all day long. Fat sits. That’s it! During the Going Strong series, the trainers talk you through the moves for good form and proper positions. It’s all about lifting weights!

Bodyweight Burnout 1

Here’s a routine that requires no equipment. Bring your body and your attitude and you’re going to get high intensity moves, strengthening and toning, and an overall metabolic reboot! Low impact options are provided but excuses aren’t!

3. Flexibility Workout Videos

Aging can also correlate with tight muscles and stiff joints. Generally, this comes with a more sedentary lifestyle, but it can also occur because the aging joints and tissue make you shorten your range or motion and feel tentative when it comes to moving fully. No matter what the reason, it is crucial to stay flexible as you age. Here are some workouts that will help you stretch and continue to move in all the ways you want to!

Yoga Flowetry

How about some yoga? Whether you are brand new to yoga or have plenty of experience, our Yoga Flowetry series provides a range of options for trying yoga. From the yoga tutorial which shows you how to do things step by step, to the actual yoga flow where you get a solid workout while you stretch, this series gives you what you need to stay flexible and move through your days with ease!

Stress Relief Yoga

Stress hormones can wreak havoc on your body. Our stress relief yoga gives you a chance to work on your flexibility as well as manage your stress! Try this one for a nice post-workout relief or end of the week recovery!

10-Minute Total Body Stretch

It really doesn’t take much to keep your body flexible and moving. Even 10-minutes following your cardio or strength workouts will do the trick. Our 10-Minute Total Body Stretch video will take you through it all from head to toe! Use after another workout or just as a stand-alone on days you feel extra tight.

4. Menopausal Belly Fat Workout Videos

At one point or another, nearly every woman over 50 inevitably says: “What’s the deal with my belly?” Seemingly out of nowhere your mid-section starts to thicken up and this strange little pooch starts to make its way over the top of your jeans. Thank you menopause!

Piled onto the hot flashes and sleep interruptions, menopausal belly fat comes with the hormone changes and other joys of aging. Thankfully The Mayo Clinic agrees with our contention that exercise is the best way to beat the symptoms of menopause and peri-menopause.

In light of that, we have loads of great workout videos that specifically target the abs and core. Here are a few that we love!

Ab Crusher Circuit Workout

If you’ve got 10 minutes, you’ve got a workout for your belly! This ab circuit workout gives you some amazing exercises for your core done in circuits with each move going for 45 seconds followed by a 15-second transition time. Every move is different so you’ll nail every part of that mid-section.

30-Minute Core HIIT

In addition to working on your ab muscles, losing the fat around the belly has to be part of the picture. This 30-minute core HIIT workout is a complete workout that focuses attention on the core body. You’ll perform a combination of athletic drills and sculpting exercises in Tabata interval-style meaning work as hard as you can for 20 seconds and rest for 10 seconds to catch your breath. Some exercises are meant to just blast your cardio and some to sculpt the belly. The perfect combo!

Muffin Top Melter

This 10-minute workout zeros in on your muffin top by giving you nine core exercises that will re-shape and tone your mid-section. Use this video after a great cardio workout, right after lifting weight, or just on its own any time you have 10 minutes to spare. This is 10-minutes well spent!

    I am 56 years old and I love working out with Chris and her trainers. There is truly something for everyone! The low impact workouts get you sweaty and your heart rate up. Weight training gives your body the boost it needs to see a difference in your body. Give it a try if your on the fence, I’m glad I did. My knees aren’t what they use to be, so I only go low impact. There is so much knowledge on this website to help you make decisions on what is good for your body.

    Is there a calendar to use (over 50) like the beginner’s calendar you can download? I really would like to start but don’t know where to start

      HI Julie:

      We did not develop a calendar for the “Workout Videos for Women Over 50”. I do think you would get what you are looking for with our Fit Over 40 calendar
      This calendar has some of the same workout and has a nice layout that you can follow.

      We also have a few others that I think you would enjoy if you are more on the beginner end of the specturm: Beginner to Buff calendar and the Walk Sweat Sculpt Calendar are both excellent for that range!

      If you have more questions about the workouts, calendars or website in general, check out the How to Navigate the website video to help learn how to use the website:

      I hope this helps!

    I am 50 and in perimenopause and I need to loose 50 pounds. I became a lifetime member of Weight Watchers at 19 after loosing 21 pounds. My issue isn’t eating too much but not eating enough. But then after days of doing that I am starving and will eat what is in front of me. I have struggled with insulin issues for about 15 years. I am not new to exercise andI have done a little bit of it all. But I don’t know where to start now. What work out do you suggest I start with to get my metabolism going to get some weight off? Thanks for your help.

    I really like the format and enthusiasm of your site. However, I am disappointed by the frequency of burpees and related moves that are hard on my back and hips. Also, while I am a fan of weights, I find your constant “pressure” to lift very heavy weights troubling. It makes me feel
    that I should use 15lbs etc., and my shoulders will not support that level of intensity. Cathe Friedrich,one of my favorite trainers, emphasizes the importance of choosing the weights that ensure correct form and no pain. I am a long-term exercise enthusiast who now needs to use caution in order to maintain my activity level – it’s hard for me to do when I’m pushed too hard (btw I’m very fit in my 70’s). It would be nice to have more classes suitable for fit people with some limitations.

    • Alison

      You have expressed exactly my feelings about this site. I also am very fit in my 70’s and am disappointed with the constant pressure to lift extra heavy, do burpees, etc. As you mentioned, Cathe Friedrich (also one of my favorite trainers) stresses the importance of weight selection that ensures correct form and no pain. There is no way that I can lift anything like 15lbs without causing shoulder pain, etc., and my goal is to keep exercising safely to maintain my fitness. Thank you for highlighting my disappointment with most of this site. I’m relieved that someone else is having the same reaction!

    I love the workouts and the instructors but why does electronic repeating loop of sound have to play in the background. It is so distracting to the point it is annoying and I turn it off 🙁 we can play our own music if we want.
