Keep active for a healthy life

Now’s the time to get active and live a healthier life with the new Healthy Hearts Club, launching next Thursday at the Massey Leisure Centre.

Ideal for people who have heart conditions, diabetes, injuries and arthritis, it is also recommended for people who are overweight, over 50, or new to exercise.

Held every Thursday at 10.45am in the Massey Leisure Centre, each class combines gentle exercise to music and participants are encouraged to work to their own level and have fun.

Every fourth class features a nutrition presentation, with advice on reducing the fat and sugar in your diet and how to get five plus a day. Participants have time to chat, relax and share their thoughts and experiences over a cup of tea or coffee.

The cost is $5 for a casual class or $40 for 10 classes, admission is free to members of the Massey Leisure Centre. For more information, please call Anna on 833 8100 or come down to the Massey Leisure Centre on the 25th August and join us for the launch of this new and exciting class.
