GETTING FIT AT THE SENIOR CITS

When it comes to getting fit, if you're over 50 take a look at your local Senior Citizens Centre - they offer much more than you realize.

TODAY I'M AT ST60 TALKING ABOUT BEING ACTIVE

Sue (the Queen of Fitness) asked me if I'd write a guest post on being Active in April - which is a big ask because, really we all know that I’m a bit of a lay-about. There’s nothing I enjoy more than a sleep-in, time on my laptop, reading a good book, colouring, jigsaws, and coffee with friends. If you look carefully at that list, all of them involve sitting on my bottom and very little movement (other than lifting my coffee cup or turning a page).

When I turned 50 I realized that my Midlife metabolism was doing a nose dive and I was going to have to lift my game fitness wise before I ended up twice the size I wanted to be. So firstly I started walking, but then I discovered a secret exercise haven....


DISCOVERING THE SENIOR CITS

One day when I was Googling around the internet looking for affordable fitness classes in my area, I saw they offered sessions at the the Senior Cits' Centre. After a bit of thought, I gave them a call and told them I was over 55 and did that qualify me? Well! It turns out you qualify as a Senior Citizen for using the centre if you’re over 50! And the icing on the cake is that classes are a measly $3 each for an hour! I was sold and ready to sign up!

If you'd like to read about what they had to offer and how much fun I'm having, pop over to read the rest of my post at Sizzling Towards 60 and Beyond. And say Hi to Sue while you're there - she's just lovely.
