Age is no barrier to exercise or sport.
Elderly advocates of sport have proven this with their inspiring success stories, showing exercise can be continued right up in to the 90s. Our physiotherapists are impressed by these sporty seniors who are inspiring people of all ages to keep active and continue exercising throughout their life.
This doesn't mean everyone has to play competitive sport or run a marathon, however finding the right balance of exercise for your age and ability is important.
Maintaining exercise is important not only for your health and well-being, but can also have benefits such as improved strength and balance, and reduced risk of falls.
If you are wanting to get back to exercise but unsure where to start contact us today.
