Over 50s Keep Fit Stretch and Tone
Tuesdays 11.00am – 12.00 Christ Church URC Hall, Chase Side, Enfield, Middlesex EN2 6NB
My ‘Over 50’s Keep fit classes’ are ideal if you are starting regular exercise or returning to exercise after a break and you feel uncomfortable about going to a fitness centre or gym.
The classes are a welcoming and friendly opportunity for anyone over 50 wanting to improve their flexibility and fitness levels. They consist of low impact aerobics, toning and stretching and are suitable for all levels of fitness and abiliity.
Exercise is important for health at any age, but becomes vital as you get older.
Among many other benefits, regular exercise strengthens the immune system, contributes to lower blood pressure, and reduces ‘bad’ cholesterol.
The body also responds to exercise by increasing bone density to cope with the increased workload, making it more resistant to the onset of osteoporosis. Add in increased feelings of well-being and the boost in self-esteem, and exercise is clearly a major element in the quality of life.
The above classes are drop in and are £6 to attend. I provide all equipment and mats. However, I would advise you to dress in loose clothing and bring a bottle of water with you.
