Staying healthy

Staying physically active doesn't have to mean digging out your gym kit. We're all different and it's important to be realistic about what's achievable and sustainable for you. 

Older people aged 65 or over, who are generally fit and have no health conditions that limit their mobility, should do 2.5 hours of moderate aerobic exercise a week as reccommended by current government guidelines. This could include:

  • Brisk walking - why not join our walking group?  
  • Ballroom dancing 
  • Chair-based exercises
  • Walking sports e.g. rugby, netball or football
