Get more life in your years!

Staying physically active is the most important thing older adults can do to stay fit and independent. Research shows that health can be improved and the risk of falling reduced by doing moderate physical activity for at least 30 minutes on most days of the week, and by incorporating balance and leg strength exercises into the daily routine.

Just 30 minutes of physical activity a day can help you to:

  • Stay socially connected
  • Remain independent
  • Improve balance and prevent falls
  • Feel happier and more relaxed
  • Prevent or control chronic conditions, like Type 2 diabetes and heart disease
  • Maintain strong muscles and bones
  • Keep your brain active and improve memory

Staying active will put more years in your life and more life in your years!
