Keeping fit is a key way to stay healthy. The NHS promotes walking as a popular low-impact exercise, working the cardiovascular system and burning off calories. Even 10 minutes a day can make a difference to your health. Picking up the pace, even for short spurts can increase the intensity of your walk. It’s always nicer if it’s shared experience.
Swimming is another low-impact sport that can be enjoyed at any age. Look for over 50’s swimming sessions at your local pool. King Edwards Pool in Sheffield has warm water sessions for those that don’t like being cold!
The main point is to make exercise a habit and part of your day or week.
