Bay of Plenty Polytechnic's Aquatic and Fitness Centre, Te Pare a Ruahine, is delighted to announce the introduction of a new programme to keep the over 60s fit and active.
Never2old is a physical activity and education programme suitable for all levels of fitness including those over 60 who have never trained in a gym before. Designed eight years ago by Auckland's AUT University, it is fully endorsed by G.P's, hospitals, Auckland District Health Board, National Heart Foundation and Green Prescription.
The aim of never2old is to help mature adults improve functional fitness, strength, power, heart health, balance and flexibility and to stay living independently and well in the community for longer. There are currently 17 centres across Auckland delivering the never2old programme and the Polytechnic is proud to be the first in the Bay of Plenty.
Keith Martin, Aquatic Centre manager, is delighted to be delivering the programme to the local community. "We know the benefits for those bold enough to take the first step of coming along to see what never2old active ageing is all about. Don't let age, inexperience or chronic health conditions be barriers to involvement. Make a positive decision today which will help you reap the rewards of remaining functional later in life. You'll find the cost very reasonable, the friendships encouraging and the staff highly qualified, professional and friendly!"
The never2old programme runs every Monday and Thursday from 8-9am at the Windermere based Aquatic and Fitness Centre.
