Motion is lotion for your health
Health and fitness should be a regular part of your daily routine, even more so as you age. From walking to the shops to participating in sport, the articles below will provide you information around keeping fit and healthy.
Keeping healthy physically in your old age
As we age, doing everyday tasks gets harder. There is an ache here and there, and we start to stop looking after ourselves as we should. But it’s fine? We are getting old anyway, right?
It’s actually a myth that old age automatically means poor health. While old age can make you more inclined to have health problems, it doesn’t mean you can’t put healthy preventative measures in place.
Modified sports that keep you active
Most Australians enjoy their sport and exercise but may have to give it up as they get older because of their health or reduced mobility, however, it may be possible to continue participating in the sports you love simply by making some adjustments.
Modified sports are becoming more and more popular around the country meaning older people can continue to play the sport they enjoy, no matter their mobility issues or health problems.
Extreme sports for extreme seniors!
When you think of extreme sports, you imagine a young person at their physical prime and an adrenaline junkie, ready for anything.
But more often than not, they are usually older people in line to jump out of a plane or at the head of a white water rafting boat. Anything to tick an activity off their bucket list!
