Charlotte Seniors Stay Active During American Healthy Heart Month

Warm up to chilly weather with senior workouts

Here are some great heart healthy workout tips to help keep your seniors stay healthy and active this winter in Riverside County.
 
1. Dress for comfort
Keep your feet cozy with warm socks, weatherproof shoes and supportive insoles
Wear layers of clothing to wick away moisture, insulate and protect
Don’t forget hats, gloves and scarves if it’s very cold
 
2. Look at the bright side
Being outdoors is a great way to get some Vitamin D
There’s no heat or humidity to deal with – just cool, crisp air
Exercise boosts immunity during cold and flu season
Have fun with cool weather activities like: jogging, hiking, snowshoeing
 
3. Take it inside if it gets too cold for comfort, try:
Indoor circuit workouts
Yoga or other fun group classes
Active housework like power vacuuming
