At every age, exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes, though, it can be hard to get motivated. Fortunately, there are plenty of resources for seniors to help them stay on track and find exercise they actually enjoy enough to stick with long-term! Let’s look at some great ways to stay in shape.
- Pick an activity you like doing. You don’t have to spend hours on the treadmill or in some exercise class that bores you. Try something you like, whether that’s a different machine or a different class.
- Speaking of a different class, why not try something entirely new? Try a non-traditional form of exercise, like Tai-Chi, barre class, or water aerobics! Find a few exercise classes you like, so you can change it up whenever you want, if your first choice gets canceled or you have to miss it.
- Make it rewarding! Set goals for yourself and celebrate when you achieve a goal. Stay motivated by tying exercise in with something you really enjoy: perhaps an audiobook or podcast you only listen to while you’re at the gym. Exercising with friends can also be motivational.
- Take advantage of opportunities available to you. Seniors have access to many different fitness plans, and you might be eligible for something great through your health insurance or wellness plan. Silver Sneakers is one of the most well-known exercise programs available for seniors.
