These exercises use bodyweight or minimal equipment so that no gym membership is required. Each functional strength move mimics a real-life motion and improves muscle mass and strength, bone density, or balance. The 6-week quick-start program will get you up to speed, then follow the long-term strength program or select from the color-coded exercises to design your own.
