Celebrate National Grandparents Day this year with a wee stretch, maybe even a wee assault course! Of course we jest.
British Military Fitness (BMF), a leading organisation in outdoor fitness, is encouraging the older generation of Glasgow to come down to Rouken Glen Park for a free outdoor fitness session this weekend (October 3 and 4) to celebrate National Grandparents Day.
With exercise an integral part of physical and mental health, British Military Fitness is hoping the free sessions will encourage older people to reap the rewards of an active lifestyle and become a Senior ‘Fitizen’.
With the government recently warning the older generation that a lack of exercise is a “hidden killer”, contributing to one in six deaths in Britain, BMF is bucking the trend, reporting that out of its approximately 15,000 members across the UK, 13 per cent are over 50 and 5 per cent are over 60.
And the number of its senior members in Glasgow is on the rise, showing an encouraging trend and unprecedented demand for new and accessible forms of exercise for the older generation.
