Join us for JOY Classes
What is a JOY class? We’re glad you asked. “Just Older Youth” classes. Exercise in a supportive, safe and friendly environment with people of your own genre while having fun.
We can assist you in increasing your balance, strength and flexibility, and generally help you feel better.
We only offer moderate intensity classes, so you won’t be dropping to the ground and doing 30 pushups or 50 burpees in any of our JOY classes. We will never push you beyond your limits and we foster a strictly non-competitive environment for all of our Just Older Youth. There may be dancing, there will be music and there will be fun!
If you are interested in joining this class, please register your interest.
LOOK AFTER YOURSELF
Exercise can prevent many age-related changes to muscle, bones, and joints. More importantly, exercise can reverse changes that have already occurred (Better Health Channel, 2016.)
Exercise can contribute to stronger bones, aid in slowing the rate of bone loss, and increase muscle mass through weight-bearing exercise such as resistance training.
Six myths about activity and aging
Myth 1: There’s no point to exercising
Fact: Regular physical activity helps you look and feel younger and stay independent longer. It also lowers your risk for a variety of conditions, including Alzheimer’s and dementia, heart disease, diabetes, certain cancers, high blood pressure, and obesity. And the mood benefits of exercise can be just as great at 70 or 80 as they were at 20 or 30.
Myth 2: Exercise puts me at risk of falling down
Fact: Regular exercise builds strength and stamina, prevents loss of bone mass and improves balance – it actually reduces your risk of falling.
Myth 3: I’ll never be able to do what I used to do
Fact: Changes in hormones, metabolism, bone density, and muscle mass mean that strength and performance levels inevitably decline with age, but that doesn’t mean you can no longer get a sense of achievement from physical activity or improve your health. The key is to set lifestyle goals that are appropriate for your age. And remember: a sedentary lifestyle takes a much greater toll on athletic ability than biological aging.
Myth 4: I’m too old to start exercising
Fact: You’re never too old to get moving and improve your health! In fact, adults who become active later in life often show greater physical and mental improvements than their younger counterparts. Begin with gentle activities and have fun.
Myth 5: I can’t exercise because I’m mobility impaired
Fact: Mobility impaired people face special challenges but can lift light weights, stretch, and do chair aerobics, chair yoga, and chair Tai Chi to increase their range of motion, improve muscle tone and flexibility and promote cardiovascular health.
Myth 6: I’m too weak or have too many aches and pains
Fact: Movement can help you manage pain and improve your strength and self-confidence. Many older people find that regular activity not only helps stem the decline in strength and vitality that comes with age, but actually improves it. The key is to start off gently.
