Get active 50+ for longer, healthier, happier lives

 

        

We lose muscle as we age which is one of the reasons why staying active is vital for longer term health. Raising your heart rate for short periods several times a week can lead to both physical and mental health benefits and help manage many conditions.

While Active Surrey's 'Get active 50+'s funding has ended there are still sports and physical activities offered by local councils to inspire people to try something new. And doing anything is better than just sitting on the sofa.

If you're an older resident, Get active inspired strength and balance classes are still taking place across the county.
