Tony & the Folks - Tony Horton with Judi Williams

Tony & the Folks
Tony Horton with Judi Williams

Beachbody

Tony states that in part he created this workout for his parents and their friends. He wanted to create a workout to help those between 50 and 80 to get some light exercise into their life. Tony finds a good balance between getting people moving and not pushing too hard.

Equipment Needed:
Chair
Pillow
Light Weights (1-5lb)
Water
Towel

Tony and Judi do a great job of interacting with seniors. The only real drawback is that the group doing the workout is predominantly female, about 8 women and just 1 guy. Tony puts them through their paces:

A Warm-up - Stretch

Break
Sweat Circuit
Break

Sculpt Circuit
Break
Cool Down - Stretch

The workout is under 40 minutes. Tony states if someone is not working hard enough after once through to do the two circuits again. He also says if they are great after that they might be ready for some of his other products, Power 90, or Power Half Hour come to mind. Overall I would say he has met his goals and created a good starting point for seniors who want to get more active, and he has a lively bunch of cohorts doing the workouts with him.

(Disclaimer: I am asked frequently if I am a Beachbody Coach, no I am not, I am just some one who has used their products, P90X, 1on1 with Tony Horton and more and liked them and achieved good results. I am not paid by Beachbody or any of their affiliates. You can see my full disclaimer here.)
