We need more practice I think…….

A spot of target games – good effort, try harder. We tend to do much better with ball games!

Mind the weights

Great workout today on the terrace on another stunning summery day. Just in case you all think this is all easy – the weights that everyone seems to be working with so effortlessly wight from 0.5kg to 2.2kg! Ethne and Joy enjoyed watching the show  😀

Building up the suntan while working out

Sounds perfect, don’t you think. Today was the first time we took our fitness class outside. Everyone said this is so much nicer to do this outside! Let us hope there will be more sunshine….

the best class in town

Mick has been working with our fitness enthusiasts for over a year now and he often says we are the best class he has in terms fitness, strength and of course enthusiasm. Twice a week between 7-12 people join the class. The core fitness fanatics are of Kay, Betty, Harry, Dennis, Rene, Reg, John and Meg and they have been joined recently by Ron. Stiff joints or not they get together twice a week to stretch, have fun and stay fit!  Just in case anyone thinks this is easy going chair exercise – the exercises are no different to those Mick has in his other classes with younger people and our residents tend to be fitter and more flexible than our staff!

After the rain the sun comes out and so do the walkers

After a few days of rain we were eager to get out for walks this morning. From walks by the esplanade, to walks down the lanes with Sylvia, Joy, Phillipa, Gerry and Clorin. Perfect way to clear the cobwebs and enjoy the world of out there.
