Plenty of go at 65

Posted - December 2008 in Your Say

Mick of NSW (see Member Profiles) is maintaining his mobility with lots of exercise, especially aquatic exercise.

He writes:

As well as integrating as many as possible physiotherapy group exercises into my aquatics and being advised about additional aquatics, I had my bike that I once used to ride to work modified and put on a roller to facilitate doing pedalling exercises. I also surveyed the local park; it has good level paths ideal for walking exercises.

Now I have lots of exercise methods, aquatics is by far the best. I do at least two methods per day. My more intense exercise program worked! The St. Joseph’s people advise me that if I keep doing my exercise program I’ll plateau i.e., I can shelve the walker! This gives me hope, which I want to pass on to other HSPers.
