Get Social

Regular exercise is important throughout our whole life, but it becomes even more important as we get older. If you’re over 50, it’s not too late to start getting regular exercise, 150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week is recommended.

The getactiveabc team are passionate in motivating older people to get active. Running, walking, swimming, dancing, fitness classes and the gym are a great starting point to kick start your fitness journey. Please see details below.
