Why we do what we do
Research shows that as we age we are more prone to falls and bumps and in turn from this their is an increased likelihood of sustaining injuries from a fall itself. It is always important, as we all age to best maintain our strength, balance and mobility as this reduces the risk of incidents and injury
Why is physical activity important to older adults?
Being inactive and living a sedentary lifestyle can lead to many health issues like heart and circulatory disease, reduced mobility and other debilitating conditions.
To maintain a healthy heart, the heart needs physical activity to help it work better. Being physically active can lead to many benefits like:
