Se­niors get Out There and Ac­tive

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Sport Waikato sup­ports and en­cour­ages our district’s se­niors – or those peo­ple who are now lucky enough to fi­nally not have to go to work ev­ery day – to have fun and be ac­tive.

There is no doubt­ing that it’s ‘‘ Move it or Lose it’’ – re­search shows that as we age, if we are ac­tive, we stay mo­bile with a bet­ter qual­ity of life for many more years than our less ac­tive coun­ter­parts.

In­ter­est­ingly this also in­cludes me­mory re­ten­tion.

There are walking and ex­er­cise groups in all Mata­mata-Pi­ako towns.

Check the Sport Waikato web­site sport­waikato.org.nz for in­for­ma­tion or con­tact Ruth Stan­ley.

Add years to your life and life to your years – all it takes is 30 min­utes a day of mod­er­ate ex­er­cise to keep you happy and healthy and young!
