Fitness Classes for Older People

Keeping fit is important for our health, no matter how young or old, but as age begins to catch up, hard core exercise typically isn't an option. There are, however, plenty of fitness classes available for the more mature. Some great suggestions are Pilates, Aerobics, Yoga and the Gym. Shown below is more information.

Yoga

yoga

There are many styles of yoga, from the gentle vinyasa, which is perfect for beginners, to the more physically demanding ashtanga. All forms are designed to improve strength and flexibility, and by focusing on the coordination of breathing with movement, you'll develop better control of both body and mind. To get the most out of it, you'll need to keep it up for a sustained period, but it is a fabulous way to condition your body whilst also relieving stress and improving your mood. We have a number of different forms available at our centres including Yogalates.

Resistance Training

weights

The idea of lifting weights in your later life might seem preposterous, but research suggests resistance training can provide major benefits for mature folk. With improved muscle tone comes greater strength and stability, which can help to prevent falls and reduce the onset of age-related muscle decline, osteoporosis and arthritis. From lifting lighter weights to using resistance bands, it's important to start gently and take proper advice or instruction in order to avoid injury. Your local sports centre will be able to provide a personalised plan to start you off, just book yourself in for an induction (gym appointment).

If you're asking if you should get your child swimming the answer is a resounding YES!

underwater

There are three main reasons why your child should swim:

* 1 out of 3 kids say swimming is their favourite family activity!

* It can help save their life! Sadly, drowning is still the third most common form of accidental death for children.

* It opens up a whole new world. Just imagine, your child will be able to splash around with family and friends, dream of becoming the next Olympic champion or just have a fantastic time on holiday getting in the pool or sea.

And don't worry about learning to swim being complicated. It's a natural step in a child's development. Babies are in fluid in the womb for nine months so are comfortable in the water almost from the minute they are born as long as they feel safe. The best way to make sure your son or daughter has confidence in the water is to get them in the pool as soon as possible.

Ask at your local pool for more information. Swimming Courses now available on direct debit.
