Active Seniors

We all know that in order to lead a healthy lifestyle, you need to stay active and exercise regularly, but it’s not just a young person’s game. Whatever age you may be, it’s vital to stay active regularly in order to help ensure you stay both physically and mentally healthy. To help you find the right activity for you, we’ve put together a dedicated active seniors programme.

As such, we at Everyone Active offer activities aimed specifically at those among you who are slightly older and have certain requirements from an exercise class that the rest of our portfolio doesn’t necessarily cover.

The Benefits of Staying Active as you get Older

Staying active as you get a little older is a vital part of staying healthy – both physically and mentally. Of course, we all know that physical exercise will reduce your chances of contracting conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, colon cancer and osteoporosis (brittle bone disease).

By staying active, you’ll also improve your mental health. Not only is exercise proven to help reduce stress and anxiety, but it can also help reduce the risk of getting dementia or Alzheimer’s disease in the first place, as well as helping to slow its advance should it ever become an issue.

Which Activities are Available?

At our centres across the West Midlands, there are a number of different senior-specific activities and classes available to choose from. So whether you prefer swimming, exercising in the gym, or anything else.

The activities available include walking sports – such as football, netball, basketball and hockey – seated exercise and social activities including table tennis and badminton, with an emphasis on social interaction, rather than winning the game. Naturally, there are plenty of other activities available, depending on which centre you attend.

At Which Centres are These Services Offered?

These services are offered at a number of different Everyone Active Centres across the West Midlands, in the Warwick, Solihull, Stratford-on-Avon, Nuneaton and Bromsgrove areas. See below for a comprehensive list of centres where the Active Seniors service is offered:
