Week beginning 8 July – the importance of strength training

I was listening to this great podcast with Dr Daniel Lieberman (a Harvard Professor) Do This To Stop Premature Ageing! | Dr Daniel E. Lieberman (youtube.com) He regretted not starting strength or resistance training when he was younger and he also said ‘As you get older exercise becomes more not less important’

Here are some ideas for strength training for beginners with dumbbells. If you don’t have dumbbells and you are just starting you can use a couple of cans or bottles from the kitchen cupboard until you are stronger. 20 minute Full Body Standing Strength Workout with Dumbbells | Seniors, Beginners (youtube.com)

New Class starting at Euxton Community Centre – Forever Fit
A new class starts at 11.30am on Tuesdays at Euxton Community Centre. This is a ‘keep fit ‘class working on cardiovascular fitness, strength training, balance and flexibility. There is no floorwork.

Guide needed for Visually Impaired Class Member
One of our lovely class members, who is visually impaired, loves going for walks but needs another guide to be able to go more often. If you would like to do this please contact me or talk to me in class. Some info on how to help generally: Be Helpful guide | RNIB

I will start to lead Nordic Walking Groups again on Saturdays and Monday evenings in September.
