Additional informations

With ageing, people tend to reduce their activities and stay still during longer hours. Even though it is understandable, it is important to keep energy thanks to exercise. Of course, there are more risks of injuries because the body has become a little more fragile with time. Beginning a new sports practice adapted to one's age is the best way to keep one's balance and then prevent the risk of falling, but also to reduce obesity and so, cardiac problems and excesses of cholesterol. Moreover, it fights the osteoporosis, improve the functioning of the immune system and helps to maintain the muscle mass.

Sport is not limited to young people, regarding the short and long-term benefits, it is even largely recommended for the elderly. 150 minutes per week represents a good program : you can exercise 30 minutes per day for 5 days a week.

The best thing to do is to choose among soft disciplines such as yoga, Nordic walking, gymnastic, aquagym, tai chi chuan and outdoor activities like biking. The most important thing is to choose an activity that will not hurt your joints or your back. You can also work with the help of a personal trainer at your local fitness club in Brussels who will build you a personalized program and help you get through your sessions without hurting yourself.
