Beverley Leisure Complex offers discounted swimming sessions for the over 60s. These take place Monday to Friday 2 – 4pm term time and 10am – 12noon during school holidays. The cost per swim is only £2.40 per session.
There are some specific benefits of physical activity generally and swimming in particular for the over 60s:
A growing body of evidence suggests that diseases and conditions, which are the primary cause of loss of function and independence in later life, are preventable. Physical activity can play an important part in this.
Preventative effects arising from regular physical activity in older age are at least as strong as those found in middle age for all-cause mortality, cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.
Exercise programmes, particularly strength training, have been shown to be highly effective in reducing the subsequent incidence of falls in older people.
Coby Kemp, senior assistant facility manager, said: “Swimming is a great activity for people of any age to have fun, improve their health and to meet socially. We hope that our 60+ customers will take advantage of this offer and take time out to enjoy a relaxing swim.”
