And Body + Soul gym manager Rob Hubert is the man to help you on your way "to a fitter and healthier lifestyle".

In an exclusive series for Seniors News, Rob will guide you step-by-step through an easy to follow set of short, instructional videos.

These videos are instructional ONLY. If you are suffering from any physical ailments or injuries, please consult your doctor before attempting exercise.

So let's get moving with the first video: Squats.

Often referred to as the 'king of all exercises', the squat is an easy to learn and perform exercise that work the hips, glutes and quads.

But first, you must activate your core, which is "essential" to perform the exercise.

Once you discover your core, put your hands out in front of you, stand up straight, lower yourself into the squat and then push through your thighs back to a standing position (repeat as many times as you can).

It's that easy!

ROB'S TOP TIPS

  • Activate your core
  • Stand up straight
  • Feet apart
  • Remember to breathe!
