It’s “Exercise Right For Active Ageing” and Erin Glass our Exercise Physiologist has written this great piece about menopause and the positive influence exercise can have. Dive on in and hear her advice and tips. (That’s Erin in the pics!)

“There are so many people these days who spend a lot of time sitting at a desk for work, study and binge-watching series on their favourite streaming service!

As you get older, you may notice changes to your body including poor eyesight, weaker muscles, stiffer joints and feeling unsteady on your feet. The natural ageing process can place older adults (above 65years) at an increased risk of injury, joint pain and having a fall. Falls are the leading cause of injury-related death and hospitalisation for this age group.
