Live Well With Older Persons Sports Sessions

Live Well With Older Persons Sports Sessions

20/9/2016 - Keeping active can help keep you young and older people in Broxtowe can keep fit and socialise with a wide range of exercise and sports classes specifically designed for older people as part of Older Person's Week.

As you grow older keeping active can help increase energy levels, maintain independence, and manage symptoms of illness or pain, it's also good for your mind, mood, and memory. Exercise is a pleasurable part of life and something to look forward to especially if you meet like-minded people along the way! From low impact activities like seated exercise to dancing away your stress with Zumba or mastering a skill playing Tennis there is something for everyone to get involved with and maintain habits into later life.

There's a host of activities that people can get involved in, no matter what their ability or how long it's been since they last played sport and with it being National Older Persons Day on Saturday 1st October it seems like a good time to start.
