Check out their website for activities and events near you.

My preferred exercise is running, but my achilles isn’t cooperating right now, and rehab is slow progress. I find weights really hard to do, both from a strength and motivation point of view, but I’m very aware that strength training is so important for bone density and muscle mass for women in their 50s. So, quite proud of myself this morning for a home upper body weights session followed by some pilates.
