    I would ask at the local gym. The membership includes an evaluation, just ask for cardio and weight training.

    I would suggest rowing machine, lat pulldown, incline bench with dumbells, leg press as a start.

    Yeah, he should probably start with a program of compound lifts with a managable amount of weight. Train 3 days a week, like Monday, Wednesday, Friday and do a good warm-up with real light weights (this will also give him a chance to learn proper technique).
    Do slow but steady increases in reps and weight. Later on he can add more exercises and, eventually, spilt up body parts on different days.

    And have him look around the posts and pics here to see what 50+ men can accomplish.
    Hey, are you going to train with him? You could be a big motivator and make a real difference in his life.
    A bodybuilder uses the weight to work the muscle.

    There are no accidents. Everything happens for a reason and usually at exactly the right time.

    I'm 7 years older than your dad, and if I can do it, he can too! That's great he's going to do weight training, but he also should do some cardio work too. I do a 3 day on, 1 day off routine - cardio on day 1, weights on day 2, cardio on day 3, followed by a day of rest or light exercise like walking.
