How we age is dependant on how we live, and exercise is a crucial part of staying healthy, well and functioning in a way that allows us to enjoy life as we grow older. Check out the first in a series of video below for some simple exercises to improve and maintain your strength, balance and flexibility.
You can download our Active Ageing Poster or watch some of our videos available to help support long term free movement.
Please consult your GP before undertaking any exercise program, The exercise in the video is gentle but still take care to always take it at your own pace.
What is our belief about growing older? Do we follow what we have seen others do or are we open to the possibilities that the lifestyle choices we make are the single biggest influencers of the health we feel.
At SoulFit we are passionate about supporting older adults to enjoy strong, able bodies as we age. This is an area we have done a lot of work in and we love to support people in later life to maintain and regain functional strength to allow you to enjoy everyday living
All of us here at SoulFit are big believers in improving balance. Maintaining good balance as get older is a great way to reduce your risk of injury and accidents and keep you feeling confident.
We have created a handy downloadable poster. Print it off and keep it on your fridge, to practice the easy moves whenever you have a spare moment.
Exercise and gentle movement is one of the best ways to stay physically well as you get older. So grab your handy poster and join us!
