Keeping fit as you get older is vital, not only because it can add years to your life, but because it can add life to your years.
At Bene Padre Pio Lifestyle & Wellness Centre, locals are embracing this positive mindset by taking advantage of world leading gym equipment specifically designed for senior fitness, rehabilitation and wellness.
To encourage others to take their first step towards staying fit and healthy, Bene is holding a free Come & Try day on October 23 as part ZestFest, a festival for modern ageing.
Participants are invited to come and experience a fun and relaxed workout as Bene Padre Pio trainers from leading physiotherapy clinic Flex Care guide small groups of six through safe and effective exercises.
Local resident Antonietta Matteo, 76, has been using the gym at Bene Padre Pio twice a week for more than 12 months and says it’s had a big impact on her health.
“I’d never been to a gym or done any structured exercise before, but I now really enjoy going to the gym and keeping fit,” she said.
“It makes me feel good physically and mentally, especially having a chat and a laugh with other people using the gym, so it can be a lot of fun.”
