Healthy Ageing Group Classes – Women 50+
Being physically active and staying fit and healthy will help you to get the most out of life, whatever your age. Staying active is the best way to maintain health, well-being and quality to life. It can help to:
- Prevent and Manage Chronic Conditions
- Stay Socially Connected
- Maintain Brain Function & Memory
- Stay Independent
- Reduce Risk of Falls
Despite the proven benefits of regular exercise, only 17.2% of those aged over 65 are meeting the physical activity guidelines. We want to change that.
Every Wednesday at the Morayfield Clinic at 11:30 am, group exercise classes of up to 10 people will be run by an Accredited Exercise Physiologist. You will have access to tailored exercise sessions that cater to your needs in a supportive and engaging social setting. The addictive circuit style classes change weekly and target the key components of healthy ageing: strength, balance, and cardio! Bring your friends along, the more the merrier.
When: Every Wednesday at 11:30 am
