Member for Gosford, Liesl Tesch, is calling on Central Coast seniors with internet access to shake the COVID-lethargy and get fit and healthy by using the Active Seniors free online classes.
The classes are offered by the Active Seniors Health Centre and aim to help improve quality of life by promoting an active lifestyle.
Tesch said seniors can use this technology to keep up their physical fitness
“With COVID-19 continuing to impact the community at large – particularly seniors in our community – it is more important than ever to ensure that we are staying active to look after our health,” she said.
“I assisted my 97-year-old neighbour to link into the Active Seniors program online during COVID, and she still likes to show off some of her exercise moves.
“‘Active Seniors are working in this space to ensure that seniors all around Australia have access to exercise resources no matter their location.
“Recently they held a hugely successful event called Australia’s Biggest Exercise Class at the end of April.
“Active Seniors have dozens of exercise videos for all different abilities on their YouTube channel, as well as written programs on their website.
The Active Seniors classes can be viewed on their YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQjISzHbBBFzduwZyDKf_hA/videos and their exercise programs are available at https://www.activeseniors.net.au/articles/.
