With winter now upon us, it can be all too tempting to stay indoors and wrap up on these cold winter days, and that often goes hand in hand with a reduction in the exercise we’re getting. This can be particularly apparent among older people. The good news is that there are so many ways to keep fit, irrespective of age or agility.
It can be something as simple as a slow or brisk walk. Many Audley Club members and property owners enjoy a walk through the grounds of their village on a regular basis. More and more people are sporting fitness tracker watches to keep track of their physical activity too, which can spark some light-hearted competition between friends.
For a step further, the Audley Club boasts a range of gym equipment, beautiful heated swimming pool and relaxation area, and regular activities and classes.
Rain, snow or blow, Audley owners and Club members tell us that they still look forward to their twice weekly Zumba class, stimulating both their muscles and their spirits.
For some inspiration on getting active, below is an example of the Audley Club Timetable at Chalfont Dene in Chalfont St Peter. Download the timetable here. Whether you're close to an Audley Village or considering taking up classes locally, there are some ideal workout ideas to get you started.
An example of a group class, great for building up core strength, balance and coordination to help in everyday activities.
Tai Chi not only exercises the muscles, it twists and stretches all parts of the body. This feels like a massage for the internal organs. This exercise increases the flow of blood, fluid and energy throughout the body.
The all time classic circuit/toning training. This workout combines strength and endurance to burn calories to tone and work your entire body. Stretch Fit Another great all round keep fit class for flexibility, balance and coordination, to help in everyday activities.
A class working on balance, coordination and strength, particularly designed to suit anyone with a limited range of mobility, trouble walking or in a wheelchair.
The popular energetic dance workout stimulates all the senses and promotes high spirits. From fast-paced records, to calmer cool down tracks, there’s something for everyone.
Movement in water is a fantastic way to get fit as well as stay fit. The unique physical properties of water provide an ideal environment for exercise. Natural buoyancy of the water reduces weight-bearing stress, allowing a greater ease of movement with less strain on bones, joints and muscles.
The Audley Club team are experienced, passionate and caring and work hard to support each client on a one-by-one basis. Moving at their own pace, whether it be alone in the gym or as part of a stretch-fit, circuits or yoga class, gives guests the confidence to enjoy more regular exercise and even increase their fitness and general feeling of wellbeing.
Classes such as Chair Fit, for clients with limited range of mobility, give Club members and owners the opportunity to be as physically active as they desire.
