Celebrating International Day of Older Persons – October 1st, 2023
At Active Nation, we are committed to promoting physical activity and engaging people of all ages in a vibrant, healthy lifestyle. Today, we want to shine a spotlight on the United Nations’ International Day of Older Persons, an occasion close to our hearts. This day allows us to recognise the incredible contributions of older individuals to our society and to highlight the importance of keeping them active and engaged. Join us as we explore some fantastic ways we promote physical activity for a healthier, longer life.
Active Living for All Ages:
Group Exercise Classes:
We offer a wide variety of group exercise classes tailored to different fitness levels and preferences. Whether you prefer a refreshing Walk & Tone session, chair-based exercises, muscle-building Steady & Strong weight training, or the flexibility-enhancing Stretch & Flex, we have something for everyone. These classes foster a sense of community while improving physical fitness.
Swimming & Aqua Fit:
Experience the joy of swimming or join our invigorating Aqua Fit classes. It’s not only a fantastic way to stay active but also a fun and refreshing experience. Water-based activities are gentle on the joints, making them ideal for older individuals looking to maintain their fitness.
Grab your rackets and engage in friendly matches of badminton. This sport not only keeps you physically active but also provides an excellent opportunity to socialise with others. It’s a game that transcends age, making it perfect for our older supporters.
Celebrating Wisdom and Experience:
We firmly believe in celebrating every stage of life, especially our older supporters who have a wealth of wisdom and experience to share. This belief is why we proudly observe the International Day of Older Persons every year.
International Day of Older Persons:
This special day is all about acknowledging and appreciating the incredible contributions older individuals make to our society. Whether through volunteer work or passing on their valuable knowledge to younger generations, they play a vital role in shaping our world.
Challenges Older Persons Face:
It’s essential to raise awareness about the unique challenges older people may face in today’s fast-paced world. With more than 700 million people aged over 60 worldwide, their well-being and happiness matter greatly to us. Loneliness, health concerns and access to suitable physical activities are just some of the challenges they may encounter.
As we celebrate the International Day of Older Persons, let us remember the importance of embracing active living at every age and cherishing the wisdom and experience our older community members bring to our lives. Together, we can continue to move forward, fostering a stronger, healthier, and more inclusive world.
