It is never too late to be fit and healthy. In fact as we get older, physical exercise becomes increasingly important for a range of health reasons.
It is important to maintain a degree of physical exercise and fitness as we age. As we get older our bone density declines, our muscle strength deteriorates, and a lack of physical exercise exacerbates this. A lack of exercise can also lead to increased weight, which as an older adult puts you at a higher risk of illnesses and diseases such as diabetes and heart problems. Exercise is also an important means of maintaining social connectedness and can help to maintain mental and social wellbeing.
Knox Leisureworks runs a range of programs and exercise options available for older adults that are specifically designed for the needs of those over the age of 50. From our popular Living Longer Living Stronger sessions, to our Active Adults' membership and social lounge area, you can be sure that we have a vast array of options to suit your needs.
