So, you’ve been thinking about joining a gym or community center and enrolling in some fitness classes. That’s awesome, since staying active is a huge part of maintaining your health the older you get.

Many places even have specialized classes just for seniors, which means they’ll be somewhat customized to suit older individuals. It also means you’ll be able to meet other like-minded seniors, so it’s great for social reasons as well.

Now, the question is simply what class(es) to take. Here are a few that we think are not just good for your health but also entertaining and fun. Because, let’s be honest, if you don’t enjoy your workout class, you won’t stick with it.

1. Swimming / Aqua-Aerobics

If you can find a gym, community, or athletic center with a pool, you’re in luck. Not only is swimming great exercise, it also puts less stress on your joints and bones than other workouts. So, if you have joint pain, osteoporosis, arthritis, or a bad hip, you can still enjoy a water-based workout.

Plus, water aerobics can be super fun, too. Even if you’re not a strong swimmer, there are still plenty of exercises you can do in the pool.

2. Yoga or Pilates

If you’re looking for a low-impact workout that can help build strength and balance, consider yoga or Pilates. These can both improve flexibility and mobility as well as your stability. Plus, these classes often have a calming, zen-like atmosphere as well.

So, if you’re not into the boisterous atmosphere of regular or water-based classes, these are good, alternative options.

3. Zumba Gold

Perhaps you’ve heard of Zumba and feel like dance fitness could be a lot of fun. However, you may also be concerned about the intensity of the class. That’s why there’s Zumba Gold.

Ideal for active older adults, Zumba Gold is a modified version of the class that utilizes similar moves. It’s still got the Zumba choreography, it’s just less intense.

  1. I’m the business owner of JustCBD brand (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently planning to expand my wholesale side of company. It would be great if someone at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I considered that the best way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape stores and cbd retailers. I was hoping if someone could recommend a qualified site where I can purchase CBD Shops B2B Marketing List I am currently checking out creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the very best selection and would appreciate any support on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
