Born again through ex­er­cise

Rodney Times - - FRONT PAGE -

Born Again Bod­ies is a new group in Orewa of­fer­ing ex­er­cise pro­grammes to im­prove strength, bal­ance, co-or­di­na­tion, flex­i­bil­ity and men­tal health at any age. Classes cost $5 each and are held at the Theo­soph­i­cal Cen­tre in An­naliese Place ev­ery Tuesday from 11am to 12pm. From their mid-thir­ties peo­ple lose ap­prox­i­mately 150 grams of mus­cle a year. This is called sar­cope­nia. It means peo­ple no longer have the strength to do the things they used to do such as lift­ing ob­jects from the floor, hop­ping out of bed in the morn­ing or get­ting up eas­ily off a chair, sofa or toi­let. Ex­er­cises with weights strengthen mus­cles, bones, ten­dons and lig­a­ments. In fact ev­ery cell in your body be­comes more ac­tive. The out­come is greater bodily health. You can add these ‘‘re­sis­tance ex­er­cises’’ to your ex­er­cises for co-or­di­na­tion, flex­i­bil­ity and car­dio­vas­cu­lar fit­ness and you will take your body out of re­verse and put it into for­ward gear.
