This home-based exercise program is designed with seniors in mind, requiring only minimal, inexpensive equipment: no bulky machinery taking up space like a traditional gym. The easy routine is simple, safe and can be performed at your own pace daily, provided your doctor agrees it’s suitable.

The full workout takes about 60 minutes including rest periods, with 60 repetitions of each segment. Personally, I feel a sense of fulfilment and an endorphin rush when I finish.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues evolving with devastating health effects physically, mentally, and emotionally, I’ve felt in virtual solitary confinement as a widower since 2020. However, maintaining my daily exercise routine has been crucial for coping mentally and physically. I commend this program to other seniors as a valuable tool, especially amidst the ongoing pandemic, to take control of your health at home. The routine provides a constructive way to alleviate stress and frustration while keeping fit.


Allan Platts, born in 1937 (the year nylon was patented in the U.S., and the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco opened), is a retired specialist surgeon residing in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. As a younger man he regularly jogged 5 km daily for aerobic exercise, but with advancing years developed this home-based exercise routine.

With the advent of the SARS Covid 19 pandemic in 2020 and its worldwide evolution in 2021, he came to realise the likely effects both physically and psychologically on the elderly cohort in society who were often isolated due to the circumstances.

This little book is an attempt on his part to address the situation provided the reader is sufficiently motivated!
