Top Fitness Products for Seniors 

I can finally call myself an expert when it comes to anything related to fitness, health, and clothing recommendations. My company has been training people for over 25 years in NYC and I know what works and what doesn't. These Recommendations are from the 1000's of clients that type a Training has trained for the last 25+ years.

My recommended products are selected with the following criteria:

  • Size. Is it practical for in-home training or private gym use? Can it be stored easily at home.
  • Client reviews. Our clients like them, and the products below all have 100's of positive 5 star reviews.

Designed for light and speedy mobility, the exercise band can be rolled up to stash in a gym bag, or closet. It has 5 resistance levels. These are extremely strong. I personally use the RED bands. Take into account that I am 6' 3" and 220 lbs and some days it's kind of a challenge so... take that into consideration when choosing your band size.

Non allergenic, non-latex resistance bands. Robust, resilient and durable, with excellent elasticity, the Starktape elastic workout band will ensure the best exercise for your legs, butt, upper and lower body. 


Durable cast-iron hand-weight dumbbells are ideal for light weightlifting and muscle toning. I like these because they are Neoprene which provides a comfortable non-slip grip. More importantly they will prevent damage to any expensive hardwood floors and protects weights from cracking and chipping which happens often with the all-metal or steel dumbbells.
