One of our latest morning activities is a real hit among the clients at Arcare North Shore!
Lifestyle assistant Andrea has found a way to turn exercise into something fun and exciting for everyone.
Sometimes, it can be difficult to find the motivation to exercise, especially in the early mornings.
But now the clients’ point of view has been changed as they see the morning exercises as a great way to get their bodies moving.
Both men and women are lining up to join the group and you can definitely see the benefit it has on them!
With the introduction of her gentle movement exercises, everyone looks forward to the morning exercises now.
They say that doing their morning exercises after breakfast is giving them more energy to start their day off right.
They also see it as a great way to stretch out their bodies in a fun and gentle way.
The clients at North Shore are setting a really good example for everyone who lacks motivation and energy to exercise.
Seeing their active lifestyle really inspires all of us to go for daily runs or do some stretches while we work.
Exercises are not just good for the body, but they are great for the soul too!
By gathering in their exercise groups, they are meeting new people and catching up with old friends.
Everyone looks forward to having a nice morning chat with like-minded people who all want to stay fit and healthy.
Thank you for introducing such great morning exercises to Arcare North Shore, Andrea!
