Whitsunday Times - - LOOK GOOD FEEL GOOD -

DUE to the suc­cess of the Wed­nes­day over 50’s class, the Whit­sun­day PCYC is launch­ing an ex­tra over 50’s class to meet pop­u­lar de­mand.

The first class will be held to­mor­row (Fri­day, March 28) with pi­lates from 10.15am fol­lowed by a low-im­pact cir­cuit fit­ness class from 11.30am-12.30pm.

The classes, which are de­signed for so­cial en­joy­ment and gen­eral fit­ness cost $6 per per­son and in­cludes morn­ing tea.

Wed­nes­day morn­ing over 50’s classes are a fun filled af­fair and start with a low car­dio, low im­pact and low weight cir­cuit train­ing at 9am, fol­lowed by pi­lates at 10.15am and so­cial singing with the Co­ral C Voices group af­ter morn­ing tea at 11.30am.

Whit­sun­day PCYC branch sup­port of­fi­cer Jo Pil­lifeant said all of over 50’s ac­tiv­i­ties were de­signed to en­cour­age older people to at­tend one or more of the ses­sions to meet new people while im­prov­ing their fit­ness.

“As people age, reg­u­lar ex­er­cise is more im­por­tant than ever for the gen­eral well­be­ing of their mind and body,” she said.

“There are many phys­i­cal health ben­e­fits of ex­er­cise in that it helps people main­tain or lose weight and stim­u­lates the brain. It also boosts your mood and self­con­fi­dence, re­duces the im­pact of ill­ness and chronic dis­ease while im­prov­ing mo­bil­ity, flex­i­bil­ity and bal­ance.”
