ENJOYING an active lifestyle is the way forward for today’s super seniors.

You can have a great time while you’re doing exercise that’s good for you four days a week at The Fitness Company, in Spalding’s Spring Gardens.

Super Seniors classes specially timetabled for older people to maintain a good fitness level through the Autumn started there yesterday.

Fitness Company boss Tracey Vowels said: “Older people today are so much more active than they’ve ever been, and they know how to enjoy themselves at the same time.

“We’ve put together a timetable of classes that we know are suitable and good fun, so people can mix and match them.

“We’ve also put them mid-morning each day because if you’re retired you want to relax over your breakfast before you leave the house and take your time.

“Every class starts at 11am.”

The Super Seniors timetable starts with Tracey’s own exercise class on Monday for 45 minutes.

The Tuesday class, Zumba Gold, doesn’t start until September 11.

It’s a slower-paced, low impact version for beginners of the latest fitness/dance craze where the music will lead you to get into the rhythm and effectively exercise almost without realising it.

Line-dancing is a Fitness Company speciality and a huge favourite with adults of all ages, but particularly those past their first youth. An hour of line-dancing is the Wednesday Super Senior class.

After a break to take things easy on Thursday, Super Seniors resumes on Friday with beginners Pilates, a series of exercises designed to increase mobility and flexibility, improving co-ordination, posture and breathing.
