The aerobic and resistance exercise session is aimed towards ages 55 and over with all fitness levels and body types welcome. It will take Place in Millennium Regional, Malahide Castle Regional Park and Seagrange Park between 10:30-11:30am.
“We’re making it easy to start with small steps and dream big,” says Sinead and Julie of The Sports Management and Coaching programme at ITB. “It’s an open invitation to become comfortable with the outdoor gymnasium workout before making a long-term change for the better.”
Research has proven that a regular exercise programme provides significant health advantages. The World Health Organization estimates that more than 1.5 billion adults worldwide are overweight. A host of life-destroying ailments including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer often accompany obesity. Regular exercise and healthy food are our best ammunition in the fight against preventable disease.
