Online Classes encouraging seniors to get active
Seniors with internet access are being called upon to shake the COVID-lethargy and get fit and healthy by using the ‘Active Seniors’ free online classes.
4 June 2021
THE online classes, which are offered by the Active Seniors Health Centre, aim to help improve quality of life by promoting an active lifestyle.
Gosford MP, Liesl Tesch believes seniors can use this technology to keep up their physical fitness using these classes.
“With COVID-19 continuing to impact the community at large – particularly seniors in our community - it is more important than ever to ensure that we are staying active to look after our health”, said Ms Tesch.
“I assisted my 97 year old neighbour to link in to the Active Seniors program online during COVID, and she still likes to show off some of her exercise moves”.
“‘Active Seniors’ are working in this space to ensure that seniors all around Australia have access to exercise resources no matter their location. Recently they held a hugely successful event called ‘Australia’s Biggest Exercise Class’ at the end of April. I want to see more of our own seniors showing how fit we are.”
“Active seniors have dozens of exercise videos for all different abilities on their YouTube channel, as well as written programs on their website. I encourage all older Coasties to try out a class from the comfort of their living room.”
The Active Seniors classes can be viewed on their YouTube channel www.youtube.com/channel/UCQjISzHbBBFzduwZyDKf_hA/videos and their exercise programs are available at www.activeseniors.net.au/articles/.
