As winter sets in and the days are shorter, it’s tempting to retreat into the warmth and
comfort of our homes, crank up the heating and wait out the cold weather. Winter can be
disruptive to exercise routines across all age groups – the morning walk or run isn’t quite so
appealing if you’re starting in the dark.
Local Medowie physio, Mike from Medowie Family & Sports Physio, advises that seniors make their exercise routine social, “Take a class, join a walking group or arrange a walk with a friend. If your routine involves other people you’re less likely to cancel if there’s a cold start to the day and it’s much more enjoyable if you’re catching up with friends at the same time.” Residents at Blueheath at The Bower will have access to resort-style facilities in the clubhouse which will enable all year-round indoor swimming, a gym, group fitness classes and the opportunity to connect with those in a like-minded community to walk and exercise with.
