According to NIHseniorhealth.com, moderate physical activity helps prevent chronic diseases, improves mood and lowers chances of injury. Enjoy the crisp, cool air of fall by taking a hike outside or break a sweat indoors with some fun fall exercise.
According to a Journal of the American Geriatric Society study, hiking for at least four hours a week lowers your risk of being hospitalized due to a heart attack or other cardiovascular activities. Take a hike on the Sutallee Trail, a 5.2-mile trail along the Etowah River. This trail is moderate and is accessible year-round.
In addition to being fun, it is also good for you. Here at Soleil, we are always offering classes to get your body moving, such as Zumba. Check our calendar to see what’s coming up next.
