Free activities for the over-55s in Santa Cruz
Santa Cruz city council has opened registration to participate in a free initiative of healthy activities, aimed at people over 55 years of age.
The activities in the programme “For an active maturity” will begin the spring class period on February 11th. These free healthy sport classes for those over 55 years of age will be held twice a week, in each of the five districts of the capital.
Councillor for sports, Verónica Meseguer, said: “The programme combines physical activity adapted to the age range of users with nutritional advice and healthy lifestyle habits.”
Next quarter’s offer reaches five districts so participants can exercise close to their homes, without having to travel too far to achieve their purpose. The structure of the programme allows, from Monday to Friday, bi-weekly activities.
“The goal,” said Verónica Meseguer, “is that people over 55 years of age living in Santa Cruz can practise sports in a healthy way. Participants in these sessions enjoy tips on healthy living habits for 20 minutes, while the remaining 40 minutes perform physical activity according to the age of each participant.”
For this, a team of specialised monitors will develop their work from 9:45 to 10:45 and from 11:30 to 12:30, forming two groups and working for 60 minutes with each of them.
The registration in these activities is completely free and may be formalised, at any time, in each of the facilities that host this initiative. For more information, telephones 665 843 029 and 685 442 296 have been enabled.
