Age Group Specific

Age is never a reason to not be physically active. It is never too late or too early to do exercise. Our information will give guidelines to support you in becoming more physically active and achieve the benefits associated with a healthy and active lifestyle, regardless of your age!

To get started there are some general pointers for all. Please read them through as they might help you in starting your new journey to become more physically active and achieve a healthy lifestyle.

Be Active - Any kind of activity is better than none. Try to move around more and sit less and find opportunities to be active throughout the day. It all adds up.

Talk to experts - Talk with your health care provider before beginning an exercise program. Ask about any changes in your medications or concerns with becoming more active.

Build a Plan - A personal trainer or certified exercise professional can help you set a goal and design a customized program to achieve your goal. Build your programme and stick with it.

Be Active with Others - Do activities that you enjoy and find an activity buddy or group class to get that extra support. Those who are active with a friend tend to stick with it longer than those who go it alone
