Staying Fit in Your Senior Years Is Essential

Staying fit in your senior years is essential to having a healthy, active lifestyle. Adding fitness into your daily life has never been easier. Below you’ll find a list of a few different ways to have a lot of fun while sneaking some exercise in.

Dancing Lessons

Do you know how to dance? If so, you can try to take lessons of a type of dance that you don’t like. You may be an expert at ballroom dancing, but have you ever tried the Salsa? If you don’t know how to dance, this is a great way to learn while still exercising. There are lots of places that offer dance lessons at reasonable prices, levels of skill, and different types. Learn the Tango, the Square Dance, or maybe a new-style dance, like hip-hop. Dance is a great way to have a lot of fun while also getting in shape.

Hiking

Take a journey outdoors and relish in the beautiful sights, smells, and nature, while hiking. Hiking is just walking, which is exercise. The fresh air is wonderful for the body and the beauty of nature will make you feel like you’re hardly doing any exercise, when in fact, you’re exercising quite a bit.

Go on a Bike Ride Picnic

This one is a lot of fun. Plan a nice, healthy picnic lunch, with a destination in mind, and ride your bike there. Bring along family or friends and have a great day while getting your body moving.

Geocaching

If you’ve never heard of geocaching, you’re missing out. It’s type of adventure hunt that involves using a GPS to find a hidden cache of items. Sounds easy, right? Not exactly. It can be quite the adventure. Sometimes you are able to find one cache of trinkets, but then have to move an item to another hidden cache somewhere nearby. GPS is pretty accurate, but only within so many dozen feet, so finding a small box hidden in some brush can be quite the challenge. A decent amount of walking is involved, which is where your exercise comes in. Make sure to bring some small trinkets to put in the boxes, and also make sure you fill out the geocache logbook that’s normally included in the box.

Fitness Perfected

At Bonaventure Senior Living independent living, assisted living, and memory care communities, we have a Fitness Perfected program that includes numerous fitness classes. While you may know that you’re exercising, unlike the above ideas, with our Fitness Perfected classes you’ll have so much fun you won’t care that you’re working out.
