The answer, get a personal trainer with a studio or other set up where you can get a proper workout with all the equipment you would need. Someone who will be able to coach you and train you while also protecting other injuries and aches and strains etc. With a combination of dumbbells, sandbags, resistance bands and suspension trainer using body weight I can give you that resistance workout which is so beneficial for our bodies as we age.
