Maintain an Exercise Routine this Summer in Your Senior Housing

Senior Housing
7/9/2019

When you stay with Heritage Community of Kalamazoo, you get the amenities and services you need to live comfortably in senior housing, but don’t forget to stay active while you stay here with us! Daily exercise is important for all ages and seniors can benefit the most from getting up and moving. A sedentary lifestyle can start to have negative effects on health, and, when our bodies are more likely to develop problems the older we get, it’s worth getting out and about.

Limber up joints

Before doing any sort of extensive exercise, make sure you limber up to prepare. Whether it’s yoga, stretching, or another type of warm up, preparing your muscles and joints for a heavier workout and use can help to ensure that your exercise doesn’t just cause you more pain. A great time to do this is at the start of your day, before you start moving too much. A good way to wake up as well as feel better throughout the day, loosening up is a part of exercise you don’t want to skip.

Organized fitness

If you believe that assisted living in senior housing means the end of exercise routines, think again! At both our Wyndham West location as well as our Directors Hall location have exercise/wellness centers to help residents stay on top of their personal health. We also offer an enhanced fitness/wellness program, so any residents that need assistance keeping their exercise routines going can do so with ease.

Long-term benefits

When you exercise regularly, you not only feel better daily, but, over time, exercise can help you feel better both physically and mentally as well. Whether it’s reducing the levels of chronic pain you may feel, or issues such as high blood pressure, your exercise routine has the potential to make you feel better every day.

With over 70 years of experience providing the best senior housing to Kalamazoo, Heritage Community of Kalamazoo makes sure all our residents stay healthy through a variety of activities and optional exercise routines.
