THERE’S NO AGE FOR BEING FIT!
“We do not stop exercising because we grow old – we grow old because we stop exercising.” – Kenneth Cooper
Getting older doesn’t mean that you have to give up working out, going to the gym and staying in shape. Staying active both mentally and physically is extremely important as we age.
Among older people, regular exercise has a life-changing effect. The wide-ranging benefits of physical activity include improving your health and resilience, keeping you strong, mobile and independent for longer, and making you feel good about yourself. Leading a health-conscious lifestyle also helps reduce healthcare costs.
As you age, it gets increasingly important to stay fit and healthy. Active Mauritius has therefore developed a programme to promote physical activity among the elderly. It is the key to giving you momentum and energy, strengthening your heart, decreasing your body fat levels, reducing the risk of developing diseases and enhancing your mental health. It improves your emotional well-being, self-esteem, and quality of life while helping to create social bonds.
Staying active can significantly improve our health at any age. It’s never too late to begin to exercise and reap its benefits!
