Getting older doesn’t mean you should stop exercising. You might be a bit less agile and slower than when you were younger but regular exercise can help improve flexibility and mobility and you will look and feel so much younger! We recently wrote a piece about this, check out The Importance of Keeping Fit in the Golden Years.
There are so many reasons why it’s important to keep active as we age but it’s not easy to stay motivated, especially if you lack confidence or feel a little isolated. That’s one of the reasons an exercise class is such a fantastic way to stay in shape. As well as the physical benefits associated with regular exercise you will also meet new people and form new friendships. The chance to have a good natter with some like minded friends after some gentle exercise is a really great motivator to get yourself out to a regular class.
The NHS recommends regular exercise to help you stay healthy and active. Ensuring you exercise regularly can help improve sleep, relieve stress, improve your balance and give you more self confidence. Move it or Lose it classes are a perfect way to start exercising and improving your overall well being. Move it or Lose it classes began in 2010 by Julie Robinson in order to help motivate older people to stay active. The company has grown and now has a network of instructors across the country, including Amanda Abbott at Smart Fitt so you can now join a class near you, we have put one on for every day of the week. Even better your first class is free!
