Merton Moves is a new initiative from Wimbledon Guild and Merton Council to help over 50’s in the borough adopt a more active lifestyle.
Launching on May 4th the Merton Moves Pledge aims to get participants to commit to doing one or more physical activity a week over six weeks. This can be a walk in the park, gardening or Pilates. Each participant will receive a free fitness starter kit which includes a fabulous dumbbell water bottle which can also be used as a weight!
Being active offers so many benefits and is key to healthy ageing. Even doing small amounts of movement can help improve strength, balance and flexibility, and delay the decline in muscle mass and bone density.
Physical activity helps improve your mood and sleep and increases your energy levels. It’s also one way to reduce the risk of dementia.
